update : lights are mounted and works. they're pretty nice. a lot more white than the ones i saw in the lfs
which is actually nice. with the dials (blues,white+other colors) turned at the same intensity, the tank has a cool white look to it which is awesome.
had to buy heaters since the one that came with the tank isnt as good. always turning on/off has only brought the temp up to 64degF at the most. so i picked up two 300 watt jager heaters. gotta figure out how to mount those since they are pretty long.
on to my questions:
could i have the blues 10% brighter than the whites/other colors? kinda liking the blue look a lot.
if not, i could go buy some actinic blue led
strips and get those on top to get more blues. would that also be ok?
what % of brightness of blues/whites+colors for reef?
still no fish yet. api test kit has not come yet.
pics to come when my inside glass cleaners come in from the mail. the glass inside the tank is quite dirty..
edit : thinking of running a refugium as well as the skimmer. what size tank would i need to run one? i have a 210 gallon reef that i am setting up for those that do not read the 1st post or title. lol
