Added some test zoas last night. seemed to be doing fine so I added a couple acans and an SPS. I'm not sure whats going on in the tank they were in, the one acans weren't looking too happy. Hopefully the fresh water and new lights bring it around.

Finally transferred everything over. Moving the clam is always nerve wracking and I have been putting it off. I left just the blues on for 30 min or so last night and daayyuumm, they make the colors POP. My orange shroom looked like it was glowing. I'll try and get some good pictures of everything tonight.

Man i couldn't get a picture tonight worth a crap. This is the only one besides my acan eating my favia alive then was clear enough to post.

I can't seem to find my tripod anywhere. I will probably have to wait till next week when I get my moms tank out from next to it to get good pictures. The front bow on the glass makes it hard.

The clam and everything else seem to be loving the LEDs. Now if only I could get pics to prove it :/

Man, were are these pics you keep talking about? Did bigfoot steal them then sell them to the chupacabra? lol, just kidding. So is it really working well? I am thinking about trying this 1 day.

Jimbo, that picture of the clam is terrific! Very very pretty! Id say that picture proves well enough the leds are doing the job very well...

Acans are mean creatures. Mine ate a bristle worm that I squirt into the tank from the old 2.5g tank. Poor thing...

My pictures are coming soon...I blew out all four of my white leds trying to run them off a 27V meanwell...

Decided I would upgrade my light to 6 blues and 6 whites both on their own dimmable meanwell...

Man, these leds are great! Such unnatural colors!
Matt
