Here is the first stunner strip to go on the bc 29.... going to switch out the pc bulbs and switch to 6 stunners..... that way I can get sps and rbta..... cant wait to put it on and see how it looks.....

Also has anyone ever used the aquaticlife 115 skimmer.... and if so is it worth the 60 bucks

Just be cautious. I put RapidLEDs in my BC and started bleaching acros. It's at 40% intensity now.

After research I found that I would have to get drivers that are dimmable to control the stunners.... so not sure if it will be worth it..... but I will keep it in mind

Yeah too much light is a real hassle. I would start high and then build your way up to higher. I have two 120 watt taotronics on a 55 and it bleaches everything. Have to keep stuff on the very bottom even with a roll of window tint over them.

Nice deal on the skimmer!

Dimmable all the way is what I would recommend.that way you can adjust the light source verses piss off your corals by constantly moving everything around.
