    I saw them a while back...I was under the impression that the blue strips were just "blue" and not those used for Aquariums...

    They are only good for supplemental light to boost coral colour etc.

    They are nice , but as a few others said I doubt they will suffice as primary lighting.

    There is a lot more to take into account , not just Kelvin rating....been discussed somewhere else on the forum

    for LED we are interested in PAR and PUR which boils down to lumens per watt

    Are we talking about the strip lights?

    At 5 watts per meter you are not going to come close to the light needed to keep corals plus i gaurantee the LED'S used are very low quality, Any LED below 3 watts in general is low quality and not good enough for reef tanks.

    I swear if one more person posts that site for leds I'm going to lose it.

    First off kelvin rating is just the colour temp. that is all!!! Yes, corals grow at certain temps. But these temps need to be produced at a certain intensity, normally measured in lunems. Wheb this number is not available we look at the watts as an indication of how strong the output may be.

    The strips they sell are the correct colour temp but not strong in output. So they'll let your corals look good but THEY WILL NOT GROW THEM. Period.

    Do they have a lumens per watt rating ?

    Anything under 80 lumens per watt is not worth looking at.
