Mumma that's what I'm hearing. Others have suggested a 3 bulb fixture. Blue, white and the pinkish color. I ordered one I those too! It will be here next week. You think I'm crazy right? My wife does. I just want to see all the lights on my tank so I can figure out what I like best. I like the hint of blue.

I do have a question. Don't fish need a period of total darkness? Whit this Solarmax light the moonlight LED's never turn off. So at night is have to get under te stand and unplug it every night. Or is it ok for them to be on?

Still don't understand why they would have the light set up that way. The LED's are always on no matter what setting you choose.

Why not just get a timer? I got sick of undoing all the baby locks on my cabinet so I got some timers.

Timers are a great idea and I'm going to get them. Still unsure of what light I like better. SM with 4 options or AL with on/off. Thing is the SM the LED's are on all the time. But then a timer will solve that now won't it? Mumma you ROCK!!
