I got the 24" one, hopefully I can adjust it down to 19" without too much hassle.

They are pretty simple to use. They can hold about 40kg apparently so pretty strong

Me too! Not allowed to drill walls/ceilings and can't justify paying 100s for one

Right... The fixture came and so did the light.

This is what I've managed so far..



I know it's far too much for a 10G but I'm planning for the future.

Question: is it mounted too low? I'd say it'd be around 6" above the water line.

Its dimmable so it should be fine where it is. At full power 10 inches above the water line it should have a little over 400 par 6 inches below the surface

Coolio...

I was wondering, is there any way to tell what intensity to run at without using a PAR-ometer?

Just have to give it a shot and watch how your corals react

At that height on that shallow of a tank you are not going to need to run the light very high. Maybe 15% blue and 7% white to start and then go from there.

Okay, chances are I won't have any corals for a good few months so I guess I won't know till then.
