Just added two ai sol blues with the director to my tank. Love the lights but very disappointed in the mounting rails. Purchased these and they only let you mount the lights one way which means I am going to need at least one more fixture. Also very very close to the water. Anyone have a solution to be able to mount the lights sideways on the rails. I would like to avoid the hanging kit which is why I chose the rails.

Came up with my own solution to the parallel mount. Have to get one more 18" piece of rail to do the second light. Here is a pic if anyone is curious. Now just to solve the height without having to hang them.

I picked up the 14000K reef LED from BuildMyLED and *love* it. I was able to get it for 10% off plus free shipping on Black Friday, so it brought the price down by $20. Is it pricier than the Tao/Chinese panels? Yes. But, it's made in the USA, and for my nano tank, isn't overpowered.



This is the light: 14000K Reef Spectrum - Build My LED, LLC

Does anyone have an opinion on this one? It looks a lot like the reefbreeder fixture

They are all made by the same hand full of manufacturers. Don't be fooled by the rebranding.

Sorry for such a cruddy picture.
Okay I feel really stupid now. I was reading the specs online for my tao tronics and it has 90 degree optics so that is why i have the spotlight effect.. I know it has been discussed probably a thousand times in this thread.but how do I change the lenes on the fixture and were can I buy them?
