I hear the kessils are the gold standard. the bigger one though is just ridiculously priced. we shall see how this does. I have it on 70% power for both the veg and bloom leds right now.

I got the Kessil as well, but that light you have appears to have the proper spectrum, So i think it should do fine!  You would need something larger than an H80 for sure for the amount of macro you have in that tub.

I totally agree.  Kessils were a bit much for me for growing chaeto to throw away. 

I took two old D120 fixtures with reef spectrum and ran them at 100%.  For months, I was throwing away kitchen garbage bags full of chaeto.  Eventually it settled out and growth dropped out, presumable the chaeto has done it's job...

Well done!

I have to say this thing is THE BOMB. my chaeto has more than doubled in volume since I started using it!

probably too big for many tanks out there but if you have the room... man it works really well!

Mine is still growing strong with the cheap LED grow light bulb I got from you.  Probably should think about replacing that but hard to argue with what I have gotten out of it.
