I'm out there. LOL

Would love to see the diy moonlighting. Do you have a canopy or are you adding to an existing fixture?

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

No canopy just a glass top with the hqi pendant about 8" off the top so it will be self contained and sit on the glass I might rig it around the hqi housing but I'm worried about the heat

ahh I see. They make some nifty moonlighting setups now that you can just add on to any fixture, or so they say.

here are the links

Aquarium LED Lights: Current USA TrueLumen LED Lunar Lights

R2 Solutions DUAL Extreme Moonlight 4 3/8" LED Tube - AquaCave

I was thinking of trying to add them to my current extreme pro light, but not sure how they would stay on for the long term....

I'm a bit of an electronics nut lol. I buy each individual circuit component ( LEDs circuit boards resistors power supplies) then hook it together then install it. ( dad cringes when I take apart friends trains and install 200+$ computer boards for them lol) what are your electical DIY skills like since they aren't hard to do mine was about 5 min to make the mockup take a bit Longer for the Final version

Those don't look bad just I'm in Canada which screws me when it comes to online stores, plus I love DIY from the ground up. Is my tank cycled that fast ( a week) still have hair algae though I have cut back the photoperiod to a couple hours to get rid of that.

Did you cycle withjust live rock or with a shrimp or ammonia? A week is kind a quick but not unheard of with quality live rock.
