    not used their products james but looking at their 600 (the closest size they make to my 4 foot panel on the wall tank) it is less than half the bulbs I have........but then I set my panel on dim to about half strength and my tank is 30" deepo_O........so maybe they are comparative in reality? in any case, the price looks really good and might be worth a punt?

    Recently got a Hi Lumen 6500k planted tank Beamswork 5ft fitting for my Rena 450 really impressed with the light it kicks out looks very close to 6500k and lights the whole tank and only uses 35w.
    Have looked at alot of leds recently many ruled out by price and power consumption.Didnt like the units with fewer more poweful leds because of the spotlight effect they gave.
    The unit I have now has 210 o.2w leds and does a great job,a guy on Youtube has done a couple of reviews of a Beamswork 6500k planted unit on his Fluval Roma will see if I can find it.
    No idea what the longterm reliability is of these unit only time will tell.

    Thanks for that martin,

    Had already found them, been trying to research them a bit more before buying some.

    My tank is 200cm long so thinking two 3ft ones as these extend to 100cm each, not sure if this will enough light tho.

    Hey Greg so what LED's do you use? I have been researching LED and like the look of Aquaray but not the price. Do you have any suggestions ?
