I installed the lunar tracker on my Orbit hood. It works, and makes the environment seem more natural.

It seems to make sense that the lunar lights should be on some sort of dimmer. I know that the moon is very important in the reproduction of some corals.

There are very few low voltage dimmers on the market. Plus, who wants to adjust it daily to match the moon's rotation.

if you search the forum, you will find a ton of threads about moonlights. i am one of the electronical engineers on this forum who try to answer all the questions people come up with.

however please do your best to find the info before posting a question, i have answered the same questions via email, pm, and of the forum hundres of times, and it's a source of aggravation. and what's worse people on google stumble across the threads, then email me about leds, and their cars, computers, etc. sorry for ranting...

but if you need any additional help, that's not covered by this forum, by all means let me know and i will do my best to explain.

I know very little about wiring too...black to black, white to white, green to green, and make sure it's not powered when you do it
Yet I've wired power compact ballasts and the moonlights really needed no wiring. Just need to follow instructions.

Good job I don't know much about aquariums (yet!!!!) but I do know a fair amount in electrical and communications and it looks like you did your homework and put it to good use, As for those scared of wiring your own stuff like these L.E.D. these are accualy a very good place for beginers to start low cost and 12 volt D.C. set ups are about the safest place to start, plus when it works it is a heck of a confidence booster. Neccesity is the mother of invention.
