    Would this work over a 1.5m x 600 x 600? if still available
    perhaps you could post a pic of the light side of the unit with lights off.
    awesome looking light unit i must say.

    Hi jonnobravo, yes, it should, it's got a very wide light spread. I'll post some more pics of the Led side of it this evening, dont have my laptop with me with the pics on. The unit is currently kept for Megan till end of the month.

    Thanks for the compliment, must say it is a good unit, just an overkill for my tank. :thumbup:

    My tank is 1400mm X 1000mm wide X 700mm high...
    This looks like the perfect light unit for it...

    I have a lot of hardware..Will you consider swopping for something I have that you are looking for?

    Hi, if Megan don't take it, I can take it asap. What drivers are you using on them? What's the total wattage on each unit?

    Hi @Suhayl

    Thats cool with me, unfortunately I did promise to keep it for Megan for a couple of weeks till he's back in SA, but I'll be sure to contact you asap if he changes his mind.
    I'm using 4 x Meanwell drivers and not a 100% sure what the total wattage is of the unit.

    hi Shaun

    first awesome unit.. second if i had seen it earlier im sure it would've been mine by now. in fact i saw the post few days ago but i thought its one of those cheap DIY jobs and did not bother to check... please let me know in few weeks if the unit is still available and of course if Suhayl or Megan don't take it. im in the market for light and this unit is spectacular :)

    Hey @HOT SAUCE ,

    Thank you for the awesome compliments. I got the LED's from Rapidled, but the rest was just me building a proper light unit, I built it all from scratch and wanted something that would compliment a great looking tank built by TSR. If however no wants it, I'll let you know if and when it's available. Dont mind helping you build a custom one if this one gets sold. Not that hectic to do. I've seen some crappy DIY units out there, but if I were to "brag" a bit, this one aint too bad. I'll get into contact with @megan asap just to confirm.

    Should maybe considder building custom units for some fellow reefers, customised to their needs and/or tank........

    If you would consider building lights for others I would be very interested. Please pm me if keen and I can give you the dimensions of my tank. I am useless with DIY stuff but very keen to get a decent light for my new tank.
