Hi Roger and the gang,

Since the flood a while back I gave away all my equipment and have been dry for awhile. Last month someone offered me a running 14 gl Biocube that had been retrofitted with an incandescent aquarium bulb. I took it brought it home and it already had some softies in it. They were surviving, but did't look that good.

A few weeks ago I decided to look for a light upgrade that was not expensive when I came across the 8850 by Tunze but at under a 150.00 I didn't think it would be very good but decided to give it a try.

As with this and all other Tunze products I have owned over the years I am very impressed it fits perfect and being able to adjust the spectrum and intensity simply without an added controller is a plus, not to mention the ability to use it under the water.

I can not believe the difference in the corals in just over a week. I think I will buy a small SPS frag just to see how this light will do with it.

Just wanted to let guys at Tunze know we reefers do appreciate your quality products.

Thank you very much. It should be a very good light for a 14, I would imagine no limits in corals you could keep. We use top shelf Nichia and Phillips LED's in the 8850.
