Sweet! Yeah waiting is such a drag. But at least the trigger has been pulled.

No prob.. I certainly enjoy mine, thought it would help to spread information and pictures. I'm the type to research before I buy and I appreciate when I find pictures and insightful reviews or what not on a new product.

New Announcements!

I just launched a Satellite+ Club on TPT to showcase your tanks, share information, and learn more about your Sat+ fixture!

Also, Current is running a contest to give-away some of their newly announced Ramp Timers! Contest starts now through September 15th.

To enter, join the Sat+ Club by posting your tank there and also in the Current Sponsor forum...

I've since started using two Sat+ lights on a 17g rimless tank. Getting about 72 PAR by using two. Running it high tech with co2 and modified PPS-PRO dosing regimen.

Quick little YouTube vid showing my plants pearling with just a few hours under 2x Sat+ lights! I turned the filter off so you can see the bubbles flowing straight up like carbonated water plants loving it!

Tank still has a ways to go. Cleaning up and growing out. Work in progress!

Hi Brian,

You have some really amazing tanks. just wicked plants and great looking lights.

I was wondering if you can offer some advice. I don't have a aquarium...but I have a terrarium. I grow carnivorous plants and mostly nepenthes, some cloud forest orchids and stuff.

I have been looking at replacing my 3 x 25 watt 6500K CFL + 2 x T8 fixture over a 24" exoterra 18" tall tank. it currently looks like this (old pic...few months old).



unfortunately....the colour and growth isn't where I want it to be. My carnivorous plants are light hungry and I lost alot of plants since I scaled my setup down. I used to use a 8 x 48" T5 setup before...on two big 2' wide tanks.

but now I want to try LED.

I am torn between these:

FINNEX RAY 2 DUAL 7000K. Planning on getting 2 of these.

SATELLITE LED + x 2.

Both are around 200$ for each set of 2.

I was wondering since you have both...what do u think is better? in your experience...which is more intense and good for colour.

I also thought of getting two finnex ray 2 for intensity and 1 satellite plus for red colour and then use the programming to simulate effects.

What do u think?

any help or advice would be awesome.

thanks,

Varun
