    Wow...i just purchased the LED CREE LIGHTNING UNIT for my tank and the colours is amazing...i have all the glitz and glamour i thought i could only find with Metal Halides...the shimmering effect..the Lumens..and best of all the major huge saving in the electricity bill. Come on lets face it...electricity plays a major role...when it comes to lightning of our reef tanks...but with this LED CREE Unit...we can surely tick that one of the list..;)

    The unit which i purchased comes in 2 colours black and grey silver..i choose the black one...and it also comes in various sizes..400mm, 600mm, 900mm, 1200mm & 1500mm...mine is the 900mm..i have a 1.2m tank..and it does justice to the corals and inverts.
    A brief description:

    • CREE LED Pendant Lighting
    • 3W CREE LED’s
    • Sleek and slim design
    • Passive cooling, no fans hence no noise
    • 50/50 Cool White and Actinic Blue LEDS
    • White and Blue LED’s independently controllable
    • 80 LED Lense Optics
    • Sizes 400mm, 600mm, 900mm, 1200mm, 1500mm
    I will upload some more pictures tomorrow. It's just unbelievable how the corals respond.

    Price for the unit varies depending on size obviously i paid for my 900mm R3600...and i can truly say it justifies...and payback on various costs...electricity...bulb changes...coral beauty...

    This coral species tenticles never extended like this before..after i installed the LED CREE Light unit...amazing results...all over the reef...
    Sorry guys fellow reefers i m just excited-for once i am not in a situation where i bought something and still waiting on results...we all spend on others remarks and beliefs whether it was hear say or seeing is believing...this for me was a true result...and i am more than just chauffed..(if that is the correct spelling..lol)
