Has anyone tried the coralife or LED in general
I was considering getting a 1w led for my 75 gallon to see my fish at night. But they are like 30 dollars which seems a lot fot 1 little light. My question is if anyone tried them are they good? And would on light up a 75g? They make two 3/4 watts and 1 watts.

I use led's on a few of my larger cichlid tanks. They are connected to a timer for use as an artificial lunar cycle. The tanks are homes to Malawian, Victorian(of course), South American(discus, Festivums, and assorted dwarfs), and Tanganyikans. I have noticed that these fish are more colorful, active, and productive than similar tanks housing similar species. I also use lunar lights on a 125g planted tank. This tank is a real good looker, especially with the room lights off and just the lunar lights on. All of the tanks seem to look very good when the light is like this.

I believe that the addition of lunar led's helps the fish, plants and adds a unique view for the keeper.

I must also say that $30 seems a little high. You may want to check out . This is where I got mine. They are modular in concept and more can be added to the single light. Up to 6 on a string.
