Alright sounds good. I thought it was a good idea at first.

I don't know if that was sarcastic or not lol but thank you. I'm getting happy with the way it's coming along. Spending time at the beach today even though the weather just got crappy makes me wanna go to the lfs and bring home a new friend.

So I pulled the trigger. I sold an old Iphone 4 to my girlfriends friend for $150 so I basically got the LED system (2 fixtures) for half price. It should arrive between Tuesday 5/21 - Tues 5/28. I can't wait. I put my old system on CL hopefully I can get some $ for it. Pics to come with the new system whenever I get it. I will take some last pictures before I get rid of my current lights to compare.

Just make sure you acclimate the corals to yhe lights. You don't want to torch everything.

I know, thanks! I'm going to figure it out once I get them hung. I am going to place a bedsheet over the tank while I hang them from the ceiling. Once that's done and they are level I will slowly turn them on. Any recommendation as far as the knobs go. How much to turn them up at first? equal or more blues? I'd hate to torch everything like you mentioned.

I started mine at 40 blue and 20 white. Every 7-10 days turn them up 10, Like 50-30,60-40 until you get them were you and your corals are happy . 100 percent is not necessary the goal.
