Its a outdoor led flood light, waterproof, 500 lumens and gives off what i would say is around 6000k. Its pretty cheap when compared to other fixtures ive found.
its really small too, i dont have any pictures yet of what im going to do with mine, but wanted to pass it along as these would be perfect for small tanks. has a typical stake in the ground light joint which can be modified to fit an arm of some sort.

I just bought 12 outdoor 10 watt floodlights that claim to be 800 lumens each in cool white for 84 dollars shipped on [Ebay Link Removed] the look more substantial than that unit as well.

everything is cheaper online xD besides hookers and hoes as they dont ship very well wink wink
You get what you pay for. At a local store I can touch it, possibly plug it in and ask questions. If there is a problem I can go back and talk to someone. Best thing is I can take it home if it's right for me. Online I get a little price break. I think I'll continue to support my local shops. They're my neighbors and in some cases my friends and customers.

you got a good point graphic but why not look touch and go home alone then order online? best of both worlds if you ask me =) and if you dont like it... ship it back... just dont buy it from a guy who lives in his moms basement and selling off his "art" work that looks like the one you want from the store... it might be end up being a knock off =P you can find exactly what you see in stores online for cheap if you take the time to find the supplier

How many LEDs does it have? 120V, nice no power supply needed. I like buying things in brick and mortar stores because if you buy it now, and something happens to it in 6 months from now, buy a new one, put the old one in the new box and return it and say there was something wrong with it. think of it as an infinite warranty exchange ;)

But that would be lying and stealing. Or were you just kidding.

The question is, does it grow? Has anyone tested it out?
It's a nice compact shape but I would assume you need it pretty close to the surface of the water unless it's a small pico or something.

I would save my troubles of driving to the store and having to rig up a way to hang/clip it on.
$10 more I can buy a Fugeray for low-mid light on a nano. 10" is only $36 2 day shipping on amazon. Mine grows algae in my 1g like no tomorrow. Plug and play, no Home Depot.

Keep doing that and soon you have no local store. Then when they're gone you ask "what happened to them?". Simple. You didn't support your local gunfighter. By buying online you put your friend out of a job. Look at the big picture. Buy local when you can. Of course it also depends on how much more it is local. And many of the locals will at least try to get close. It never hurts to ask.
