hello all,

I am looking at lighting options for my new set up and stumbled upon the Reed Breeder lights. BRS and Reef News Network seem to like them but I was wondering if anyone here has any first hand experience with them. Also if any of you have other suggestions of a light that is relatively inexpensive, delivers good par and coverage, send them my way! btw the tank dimensions are the same as a 40 gal breeder. 

btw if anyone is selling their reef breeder lights specifically the photon 32 V2 let me know :)

I have two photon V2 50". I love them, cheap, powerful, comes with mounting hardware

Can't beat the value imo

Thanks! do you have personal experience with these lights? 

He has more than just personal experience with them.  @danlu_gt invented them and manufactures them.  I have 3 of the ReeFi DUO Extreme lights (the larger version of what was posted) and they are fantastic.

loved the review and am now really considering these lights. I always prefer to support local businesses! For the tank I am setting up, which ReeFi light combo would you suggest? I am looking to have a mixed reef with a decent amount of SPS in a AIO system that has the same dimensions as a 40 gal breeder. Thanks!

@danlu_gt would probably be the best person to answer this question.  But with those tank dimensions, I'd probably guess two FeeFi Uno's spaced about 10" apart would give great coverage.

If you scroll down the page from the link he sent, you'll see the light coverage and PAR readings.

Thank you, I appreciate the help!

I recommend 2 ReeFi Unos for your tank dimensions.  You can probably get away with 1 ReeFi Uno but since your tank is much longer than wide, a lot of light will spill out the front and back if 1 Uno is mounted high enough to cover the length of the tank.

      Hi All,
      Reef flux and other namely fluconazole treatments all seems to be a week out. I have some reef flux currently ordered but won't be here until much later.
      Does anyone have any spare/in hand right now I could purchase or trade coral for? Would like to start this process today as this stuff is growing faster than I can remove it.

      Hey guys, I have a 21 gal nano and this XR30 was way too strong for it. I used it for about 6 months before I took it down and replaced it with a Kessel A80. This thing is killer and will grow anything you want. Fully programmable. I have all manual and warranty paperwork as well. It's clean and every LED works.

      Hi everyone,
      My name is Shane. I'm setting up my first reef in a 20g long. I'm hoping it'll bring long-term enjoyment while I wait for my university to reopen.
      I am looking for a few materials for setting up. Let me know if you have anything, especially if you are located near or around Portland, Beaverton, or Hillsboro.
      Light - Looking for a budget (ideally LED) system that's output is largely blue.  10lbs of dry rock - I'm willing to try wet/damp live rock options if it's less than 4-5$ a pound Aragonite sand (ideally still new and in packaging) Refractometer Reef salt (Instant ocean or something similar) I'm also curious what the cost of RO/DI water (per gallon) is at the local fish stores. 
      Thanks,
      Shane

      Currently have 3 reefcorner 180p lights 2 work good 1 half the lights blue channel is out and needs a diode replaced.  I have ran them for a quite a while but recently changed lights and do not need them.
      They are 180 watt fully programmable on the face plate with timers and dimmers built in. They ramp up and down on the intensity based on your settings you put in. 3 channels (night, whites, blues) and each channel has 6 set points. 
       
      $100 obo
