    Ok sorry for the delay but I've been on vacation and work was slammed today. First impresion was the impressive packaging. I light the info on the box, and as a retail option I think this would draw the eye of many reefers.

    The rails and hanging kit. I like that the fixture provides 2 ways to hang, ethier braced across the top or hanging pendant style:

    U.S. style Cords and remote:

    Im not gonna lie, this looks complicated and I'll have to read the instruction booklet in order to figure it out lol.

    Here are the LED's. I was really worried there would be some major spotlighting due to the 35w arrays but it actually has a nice spread.

    And finally on my tank. 6 foot 125g with the light smack in the middle. The color without altering anything was a crisp well balanced probably 12k ish look:

    And just because, my Mahi catch and a Barracuda I photographed while diving:

    Whoa. How did I miss this? Thanks for posting some pics (looks like one is broken though).

    It has been a couple days - any updates?

    I need to build a stand for my new 125 which I will be using this as a primary light. The instructions are pretty well written, but I think there may be a learning curve to set them up.

    I really like that the lights can be linked for master/slave options allowing only one light to need to be programmed, however at the price-point I've heard it is unlikely I'll be getting one or two more.

    I think I could get away with running two on a 125, however there would be low par in the corners. If I get the deepwater basslet on sale though that may work well. I plan on mostly gorgs and brains for the new tank anyway, since both Caribbean acros (elkhorn and staghorn) are protected.

    Not sure I follow - you will use for your primary light on the 125 or you think you need another light to chain?
    Any more pics?

    Yes.

    My 125 right now has radions. I have a NEW 125 this will go on, but I would need at least one more light to light the whole thing. So I will have two separate reefs, Just need to build my stand and order some rock, since those stock stands are scary.

    Hey Scott, your tank is so clean i don't even see rock in it. Must be a modern concept reef tank. Go buy a house or something.

    My Flipper is working well, so now instead of the coralline I see red slime.

    I have the 40b that I'm quickly killing off everything that goes in it! I sold all the goodies I was using for it. So it's sitting unlit with a damsel and a maroon clown in it just chilling!
