New DIY Moonlighting!

Well... I've finally got my new Moonlights going.

I've switched from a very bright and washed out Royal Blue which was just too much for both myself and the livestock:



To a nice and dim UV which gives me the fluorescence I want without the insane blue look:







It looks much more purple IRL compared to on photo but at least I CAN actually take photos now.

All in all, I'm pretty pleased with my first DIY job.

You were using the blues as moonlights?

Not exactly.

I knew they were much too bright, I only left them on for an hour or so after whites.
