    I have them on 2 tanks ,2 on a 110g and 1 on a 65g, both tanks about 2' tall. They come on a couple hours before the main fixture and stay on a couple hours after it for viewing purposes and to give the fish somewhat of a ramp up/down in light intensity. In these tanks I would consider the lighting dim, I wouldn't use them as the sole source of light plants or not.

    I got them so I could view the fish without overdoing the photoperiod from the main fixture and they work great for this, I am using the hidden as opposed to the accent.

    ETA, here are 2 of them on a 110g:

    Thanks:) I think two would light it up pretty good, I'll get a picture of my 65 with one on it for reference though it is a tall tank.

    The main fixture on my 110 is a 60" BML 13K fish focus blue.

    No problem:) I think they do great for what I got them for, they put off a nice gentle light.

    I love that effect of leds, I am slowly changing fixtures over to them as I can afford it. Thank you very much.:)
