Lightbulb Aqua Knight LED

Does anyone have any experience with this LED light?

I'm looking to upgrade the stock lighting from this Fluval Edge 6g. It currently has a 21 LED fixture (18 7600K white and 3 blue) for a total of 5W. I'm not so confident with this light spectrum that it can support corals, or maybe it would support the lower light corals.

I definitely would like to add some soft corals and LPS, and maybe an SPS frag or 2 (most likely birdsnest or montipora of some soft).

Here is a link

I have over my I-M 10 and love it. Very easy to use. Only downside is it's not programmable like higher end LED units. I just upgraded to an I-M 20 (selling the 10). I may buy a second Aqua Knight for it. I'm torn on buying a second one or upgrading to an AI Prime HD.

No, the whites have ten levels as do the white. You dial in what you like and it's on and off from there. Very easy to adjust tho.

I just got one for a nuvo abyss, bright as hell. I can't speak on quality since the tank it's on is cycling.

PRO:
Looks great.
Looks crazy bright
adjustable
dimmable

CON:
I'm not a fan of the touch buttons.
