    Has anyone used or seen these lights? I'm not finding a lot of detailed information or photos of them in-use. I am wondering how they would work for freshwater planted tanks. Not a bad price, but I have no idea how the lumens rating "converts" to plant usage. Also, whether they are dimmable. I like the idea of simulating sunrise and sunset for a variety of tanks, actually...

    AM makes dimmable/programmable lighting, see their infinity series, runs about 1000-2000$ cheaper than these.

    Ahh... Effect lights, not main lights. I got it.

    I'm looking forward to programmable/dimmable color temperature customizing (on the fly) LED lighting fixtures in the future. I would really love to have programmed sunrise/midday/sunset that alters by color temperature and brightness. Probably not *too* far off in the future...

    I mean much more affordable and common, that is...
