AI Sols installed. They are much brighter than they appear in the photo. I am impressed.

Wow... coming along nicely. Definitely need some water in there. Are you painting the back? That may have already been addressed and I missed it.

Nope. Those wires will be the only thing behind the tank. Gonna leave it clear.

Thanks guys. I talked to Steve at reefrocks.net. He said he is going to ship my order tomorrow. That is really all I am waiting for at this point. My multi switch rack mount power bar will be in tomorrow so I can start to clean up the wiring.

I just tested the ramp down to blue and the lunar cycle. Worked like a champ. I love these lights. They are running super cool too. The aluminum fins and the fans really dissipate the heat (and they are basically silent).

SWEET!

I love the tank! I kind of wish I had more options for tank size where I am but being in an apartment I'm somewhat limited to the 40g. This is going to be a fun build to watch!

Great progress so far! Those SOL's look really good! Kinda nice to see someone doing abuild so fast and with quality as well. It should serve you well starting at the top instead of upgrading your way to what you have now. LOL

Thanks Carey. I made all the equipment mistakes when I started my first planted tank so hopefully I can start my first reef build off with less issues .

This is a really impressive build. Keep up the fine work. And keep posting pictures.

What are you using for a ramp up/down period?
On my PacSun units I have 40 set points and do a ramp up every 5 mintues for 2 hours to 100% for both white and blue and the same period down after an 8 hour daylight period. Just wondering if that's similar using the AI controller?

Now that these units are out I'm almost sorry at being an early adopter with my Pacific Sun units.
