[QUOTE=somewhatshocked;2163457]I wouldn't throw money at BuildMyLED because there are far cheaper options - especially for your needs. For starters, look at Finnex fixtures if you're going the LED route. They're a forum sponsor and have their own sub-forum.
If it were me, I'd go with CFLs. Much cheaper, quite energy efficient, easy to replace and to find.[/QUOTE - END OF QUOTE.....
@ Somewhatshocked- Wow. I have never been told I throw my money around. LOL! Having owned a computer/Apple store for over twenty years I did research my purchases from Buildmyled. Very glad I decided to go with them. There may be cheaper options (not saying better) but being in the hobby for over 20 years I have purchased most of them and have to say these lights are well thought out and when I call- I ALWAYS get a person (the owner) on the line if I have a question. .
This is my first saltwater tank in 1993 with a 6 foot external protein skimmer and the huge basement sump - with Son Ryan (he loved the actinic lights).
My how time flies- this is him now- 2012
