Led light selection help for 4ft coral tank

Postby markfresh » Wed 11 Jul, 2018 8:29 pm

i have recently set up my 4x18x20 and was looking for a lighting system for soft and hard corals
i am looking to spend about $400.
i had a look on the american forums , and it seems they think the black boxes are the go , they reckon the units should be 165-300 watt etc,
and each led should be about 2 watt im not sure if this is correct or not so was looking for an aussie opinion.
I would prefer one with brackets as im renting and cant hang them or would have to diy a bracket but i can make one if needed.
i would like to have a programmable one mainly to create sunrise and sunset but its not essential.
i was looking at https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/MarsAqua-165W-Dimmable-LED-Aquarium-Light-Full-Spectrum-Coral-Reef-LPS-SPS-Tank-/271255122425
but there is no UV and no programmable timer.
and https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/VIPARSPECTRA-165W-LED-Aquarium-Light-Timer-Control-Full-Spectrum-Tank-Reef-Coral-/192257546107#shpCntId
they also both come in a 300 watt which are 32" long but concerned about whether they will reach the ends of the 4ft.
these https://www.ledaquariumlights.net.au/collections/gold-series/products/marintech-gold-series-gs-120-led-light-v1 look perfect but the site says out of stock , i have emailed the company but no response.

any help and suggestions would be appreciated .

cheers mark
