    Hi Hammerhead

    these are no good for reef tanks

    If you take into account the wattage combined with the optics they will not be capable of giving good light penetration

    What submariner said about reef tanks. Don't waste your money.
    Besides reef tanks though that looks like an awesome deal :) Might actually take it.

    we manufacture those for outside spot lights, while they do work pretty well, they will get your algae growing beyond crazy! i have one over a small refuge in my garage

    dallasg i presume these lights would be sufficient for a mixed reef? Would you be making these fixtures up in floodlight form or a different lighting unit, and what would the pricing be more or less?
