Finished My ClownFish Tank Aquascape

I finally finished the new Aquascape for my Clownfish reef. Features some Marco Rock that I had for about 9 months plus some new rock. Used epoxy and acrylic rods to make sure of no rock slides. 65 pounds of Tropic Eden Live Sand, Eshopps psk-100H, 2 Mp10's and more. Here are the features of the DIY led fixture I made. Yes the Thunderstorm comes from a soundbox made into the lights. I'm a computer tech so it was easy.


8640 Lumens
Super energy efficient 3 watt high output LEDs
48x 10,000K LED
16x Actinic 460nm LED

Also Features: Will not be used all the time. Just for entertainment purposes lol. Just for the lightning effect.

Total Lumens: 1000
48, 6500K, White LEDs
24, RGB, Full-spectrum LEDs
12, dynamic effects including: cloud cover, fading lunar, storm, lightning, dusk and more
70 Minute Sound Box

What you guys think?

The lights are remote controlled. One benefit of being a computer designer lol. I'm good with electronics.

Tried to show my hubby your awesome lighting system I watched the other night but it says it was removed by the user? Is there anything on the market like this?
