OP, for some reason pictures of your new setup are not showing.
is it because you perhaps forgot to attach them?

Did you go with the Finnex Planted+? I have one and I like it. Did you place them on you existing hoods where the fluorescent hood were? Seem like it would fit.

Oh Jeez. Lol. I was going to start dosing with metricide 14. Not planning on diy co2. Worried about it being too inconsistent. I already put in some diy root tabs.

Fresh, I did I did. I went with the finnex. I love it. I do see what people are talking about with the moonlights not being on a separate power cord. But it's no big deal for me. Because I want it completely off at night.

It sets directly on top of the aquarium hood and the division does not create much shade. I'm super happy. Worth every penny.

Wow, that is quite a difference between pics 1 and 4! If there was a center brace, I could not tell (no shadow). That blue background shows up well under that light. Glad you could use the existing hood with that. I like the low profile and compact design. I had about $50 in CC cash back so my 30" fixture was around $30 through Amazon.

Don't sweat it! Lol it looks clean, because it's new. I've had a timer for a while. I've got it set for 6 hrs. Then I gradually move up to how many hrs a day? I am scared to have a massive algae breakout. Lol I know there will be some, but I had a bad breakout years ago when I knew nothing and I could never conquer it.
