    What kind of lights are you looking for? Metal halide, t5 or led?

    LED would be cool but a bit pricy, i am willing to look at anything if the price is right

    Don't forget to look at running costs as well as bulb replacement costs on a Mh unit before you think the led units are expensive. Even t5s are expensive when you replace them.

    @craig redfern Morning Craig, why you feel you need to upgrade your lights?

    Answering this may give the people wanting to offer you advice / units a better understanding of your end goal.

    Cheers

    hello Nemeziz i recently purchased a Seneye reef and one of the functions of the unit is checking the light in the tank, unfortunatly it's showing that i do not have enough hence me seeing what is out there. i am also doing a few adjustments to my existing light unit to see if that make a difference.
