I need some help on light placement.. Ray threw in a few extra LED's.. I had a plan but now with all the extras i dont know what to do omgomgomg ... This is going on my sump :)

The clusters have 2 4500s, 1 RB, 1 Red, 1 Violet, 1 pink -

80 Degree Optics - I think this will also be somewhat of a frag tank as well - should be good enough in the middle w/ these lights to grow some corals!

Total of 12 LED's looks pretty sweet - I also have put some small arms on it to prevent it from going in my sump :)

how does the light do in more of a humide area? Worried about condensation and open wires.

I'm not that worried about it down in the sump - Although I probably should be - however nothing is dripping wet and moisture buildup is not on the light - no salt creep or anything like that in a week

Here is a 24 hour bump from that last chaeto growth.. this is getting rediculous...

Lights just went out before i got the pic - i can take a better one in the morning but this is like marshmellow man multiplying

What are your parameters testing at? I only ask because such fast growth would normally indicate that there are tons of nutrients in your system fueling the chaetos growth.
