    What a stunning improvement, customer upgraded from T5's to our 1500mm CREE LED Unit :)

    This is a 1.5m mixed reef.

    Is there any LEd units that will fit in the hood of a RSM 130 without removing the whole lid? Is there a small unit that would fit into the excisting light space on the RSM???

    The 1.5m unit is R5600, but for a 1.5m tank you would need a 1.2m unit @R4600

    This unit is 21cm wide and only 4cm thick so it should fit, but I speak under correction as I'm not 100% exactly how much space you have to play with inside

    the 900mm unit is 108W

    Our 400mm unit at 56W will work a treat on that tank size

    Are the LED's now in the right spectrum to sustain a coral tank. The reason I am asking is I have not used them before and a few years back the tech. wasn't really there.
    What price does the 400mm unit go for?

    Yes, that's very similar to the tank size above, we are using a 1.5m over our 2000x700x400 sps tank in the shop
