personally i wouldn't bother with TMC lights.


The TMC's have an issue of either blowing a LED due to crappy heat distribution, or the fans giving up!


What sort of corals are you looking at keeping long term? Whats your price range? what size tank?


recommendations are easier when you know what the required specs are :)
