I have officially bought my LEDs. They are coming from Across the world and with free shipping, who knows when it will come. All I know is that it is coming. I'll do an unboxing video and a review once they are running for a while. It will be my last big purchase for a while because I'm starting another project dealing nothing with the tank. I'm building a gaming computer

I stuck my Xenia on a clam back into the tank, I'm not sure i it will do well but I love where it's at. The tank is looking great, the only thing not open is the zoas on the right side (eagle eyes). I think it's a flow issue. Everything else is opening and looking amazing. I'll be taking pics at some point, right now the moonlights are on so there's not much going on.

A future project will be done with the light eventually. I'm going to open the system and bypass the dimmers so I can add a potentiometer. I'll be able to buy the typhon light controller for it after.

Update

I got my LEDs!!!! They look awesome. I just finished hanging them and the tank shimmers now! It is soo cool. The blues are crazy, the tank glows with them at 50%. Right now I'm on 50/40 because I like the blue a little more. I'll be upping it daily until it gets perfect. It's hanging about 8" above and runs pretty cool. The fans help a ton. I'll be posting a vid and some pics some point soon. I recommend these fixtures to anyone!!!

The Chinese 120w dimmable fixtures. They are really nice. I think they are nicer than the taitronics, just because they are dimmable.
