I saw these in a video of MR. saltwater, and they caught my interest. They let you customize it however you want. I was wondering are they any good? Their prices seem very good. I wanted to know before I waste my money what everybody thinks of them.

I have a 65 30x18x25 if these plus 2 t5 is sufficient enough light for my tank. I would like to try some SPS so would this work?

Based on some testing we did on my tank, I think they will work great. You probably won't need the T5s.

What would you recommend then a 24 or 36in fixture?

Contact the guys at BML for their thoughts. My guess is a 24 would be fine, you'll just have darker ends.
