    I am looking for a LED light with built in controls for a reef capable 15" Nano cube.

    Any ideas? Anyone selling one used?

    Thank you in advance,
    Troy

    I'm using them as well and I like them, spend the extra $ and get the one with wifi, way easier to program and control. they seem to go on sale around the Chinese new year.

    Ugh... Chinese new year no shipping until Feb 25

    It also suggests placement 12-24" above tank. How do you have yours placed? I was hoping for no more than 3-6" above the tank.

    On the bright side, it only takes a week or less to arrive once it’s shipped. Given the size of your tank, 3-6” should be fine I would think.

    I've got mine about 10"-12" above the water, with a custom shroud and I added 2-t5 bulbs to supplement during peek time.

    Is unfortunate you weren't asking a week or so ago as those exact Dsuny lights were 50 percent off. I managed to snag 2 with a controller for the same price. I do however have 2 165w black box leds for sale with programmable powerbars now. 160 for the set of 2. You can also pick up 2 mars aqua 165w led for about 230 new, although you' need to purchase a means to program them also.

    I'm trying to negotiate with DsunY directly. There first price was 260 CAD shipped to Canada. I sent them a screen shot of the Alibaba New Year sale of $152.99 USD free shipping. Crossing my fingers that they will honor the sales price.
