    I might be keen on both units. I'm busy building a 6 foot fish only tank. If I put both units in line what will the total length be? And how far in from the edge is the first LED?

    Must have 4 of them on a 6foot IMO ,I had two on my 6foot and it's too little ESP if u want corals.Buy these two and supplement them with two more or other lights

    They 900mm long so 1800mm if you put them in-line,there is 18 cree led's per strip,side by side 1 blue 1 white down the center.

    What is the depth of your tank?For fish only they will be way more then enough,even some softies will be fine under these lights,the penetration is amazing,the only reason why I am selling is I am getting the the bigger vertex unit with more control.I use these two on a sps dominated zeo tank,with 4 t5's and its amazing.

    Thanks for the reply.

    The tank is 600 deep.
    I'm not planing on stocking any coral, just lots of angels, tangs and butterflies.

    I'm keen to take them.

    How does R4500 sound? I will have to send a courier to collect them from your house or work.

    My tank is 450mm deep,and they penetrate all the way to the bottom,I also have them 150mm above the tank.So I can't see a problem with the depth if you not keeping sps.
