kev the light unit is just as good if not better than the tiles i took the 2 blues out and replaced them with 2 more white 10 wt 20000k  leds and it gives off just as good as the tiles i will take some pictures of the tank hopefully this weekend and show you the test rig runs the middle section of my 8 footer and i have 2 tiles each side of it to run the rest of it
i was going to take some this last week or so but i have been so busy with work and building work going on at home
