What seller did you get these from?

 

I usually get them shipped in bubble wrap inside a padded envelope!

I tried a new sell this time and got them in boxes. My other two orders came in bubble wrapped in padded envelope.

how far off of the tank are your lamps?

I took the optics out of mine to get them a little less disco, but the lamps are right on the water (1" above it)

I've been wondering about adding the optics back in, and moving the lights further away.

 

also: did you choose the 'cool' or 'warm' white gu10 3w lamps?

cool white. warm white is like near yellow.

 

 

i have mine 10-12" off the top of the tank. if you keep the bulbs in a tight straight line you wont get the spotlighting. adding the optics will at least double your par ratings and light intensity.. probably 3-4x it.
