The light just came in tonight , I did get it installed just a few minutes ago . I can tell you that it is brighter then my old finux , and brighter then my coralife duel T5 .
On thing I found interesting , I kept my old remote from my previous 24-7 and guess what . it works just as good as the newer remote . Has all the same buttons , and all the same functions as far as I can tell .
The mounting leggs have their pros and cons . I like the tilt feature , very cool . This allows you to tilt the light out of the way . The bad news is on my tank their is a inner lip that allows a full glass cover to rest in . BUT the width of the bottom of the legs on the light fixture will not allow me to use the big plastic thumbscrews because it is not wide enough . Making the thumbscrews useless AND making the tilt feature hard to use because the legs are not fastened down . Finnex missed the mark here bigtime
The feet do allow the light to sit taller on the tank . on my 20 gal
long it is 4 inches from the top of the tank to the bottom of the light . I kinda like this because it takes the light farther away from any water that might condence or splash on the light .
The lights sensor has a blue led
, When solid, it is in 24-7 mode , blinking light it is ready to accept other comands , like , time change or max mode , once say max mode is entered the LED
goes off .
That is all I got for now . I post some picks later on a non work night
