    Osram's LED systems don't even come close on being good enough for reef lighting...

    I am sure that Solaris LED uses Osram LED lights.
    The PAR reading from an Osram blue LED light is +- 250 close-up.
    A few of them will be quite powerful.

    Solaris use Luxeon LEDS, most LEDS have plenty of par close up (due to the structure of the lense) but drop off rapidly as you move away, I have done a lot of reading into the LED options and frankly there are only two options Luxeon and CREE CREE are by far the best...

    Mekaeel they are single LEDs, Yebo are actually rather pricey you can get them from communica as well for far less heck even RS components is cheaper... The 3W are going for the same price.
    BTW Solaris are using the 3W versions, and are busy with new versions using 5W (around R250 per LED) LEDS...
