    I use the Sunbrite T10 tubes on my big tank --- been in place for almost two years -- and love them. Great color and I can keep SPS robustly.

    On my nano in the office, I'm bringing it up with their Slimline fixture. Looks great, lots of PAR, cool features, and inexpensive too.
    Detroit's oldest large LED tank! Est'd Jan 2005, went LED June 2009. 6' wide 130g reef, Sunbrite T10 LED tubes (3xGen 3 and 1xGen 1), mostly SPS, but chalices, other LPS, and a few softies too.

    I tried looking for info on them a while back and couldn't really find much. You are happy with them it sounds like.

    I have a 120 with stand waiting to be set up and don't want to buy MH for it. I would rather go straight to LED.....so doing some research.....

    Go to SUNBRITE LIGHTING SYSTEMS INC and you'll find a lot of info. And the new Slimlines are actuall Cree LEDs. The T10 tubes have LEDs are Cree dies but manufactured by Luxeon I believe....

    I am going to tag along on this post as I would like to find out more about LED's. I have PC's right now, but those were just to get me going. I am looking at 48" T-5's or LED's, just not sure about which ones I want yet.

    Have ordered the Aqua Illumination Sol Super Blue fixtures. I am getting 2 of them and the controller as well as hanging kit to light my 150 cube. I will let you know when I get them if they are as cool as everyone says

    Received my two AI Sol Super Blues today but the controller is backordered! What a bummer as I'm really excited about them.
