Nice LED lights - fish only

Postby Bamzam » Thu Jul 16, 2020 11:21 pm

I'm upgrading my african cichlid tank to a 72" tank. I went with a clean eurobrace look/low iron glass and modern stand, very similar to the waterbox setups. Now I want to update my LEDs to match the clean/modern look of the tank/stand. The look of hanging AI prime freshwater lights comes to mind, but it seems a little wasteful to spend $200-$300 per light on a AI prime or kessil (will need 3 or 4 for 72") since I don't plan on growing any plants. You guys have any other light options in mind that would be a little less expensive?

I'd also like to know a good quality yet reasonably priced led for larger tanks. On my 180gal 72" I use a Current USA 48"-60" Satellite Plus PRO LED Light which cost less than $300. Nothing special about these IMO. But on my 450gal 96" I use two AI Hydra FiftyTwo +HD units which are actually really nice. But if there were something in between these two lights, in terms of quality & price, I would probably get them in the future.

Don't have any experience with these, but looks like 3 Kessil A80 tuna sun lights might be good for fish only? These are priced at $129/each and it says they have a 24" spread
