that should light up your tank like a runway! Enjoy!

Some people are like slinkies...they serve no real purpose yet can still bring a smile to your face when you push them down the stairs!:p
Have a great day! Brian

Watch for obvious signs of stress or discomfort and keep a keen eye on your temperatures. If problems appear be prepared to switch back to your old lights (or in the case of stress or bleaching add more screen). You're going to have to "gut feel" it from here. Good luck!

Wow I found alot of info on this site but I keep getting confused b/c everyone has a different idea. Now that I just recieved my light it states not to place it over open water. I am going to use the legs but use egg crate now I guess I need to keep the glass canopy? They told me temperature keep at 78 and it will prob raise to 80 tops. I dunno where to start. I wwill do the screen method with 8 sheets of screen I will try to make it look like my PC lighting then in 3-4 days take one screen away etc. I will keep the lights on for 10hrs. daily.

They say that to cover their rear ends if you know what I mean. No tops...

Sorry to highjack but...Regular window screening? You cover the entire tank? That works well? Cuz all I have is softies and I getting 3 250w for a 210 in september, kinda scared of losing something. Looking for the best way to acclimate also. Was thinking of laying everthing I have out on the sand bed too, but should they be shaded or just keep everything low?
