So a little update,no the tank isn't wet. Long story,but I have a fellow reefer making me a light. It'll consist of I think 4 rb,2 blue,3-4 NW and 2 uv. Supposedly the light put out over 200+ par hung 10-12" over a empty tank @ 100%. I'm goin to have the light hung about 6-8" over the tank at about 15-20% to start once I get some frags in there put hope to achieve over or around 100 par on the sand bed an with water at about 30-35% probably will be a little less though.

 

That's All for meow.

Thanks for the pictures Tom. I can't wait to get the lights in man. It'll be complete overkill but so worth it lol.

 

This man right here is a DIY boss !! I suggest if anyone ever needs a light built,go to this man. He's badass !!

Thanks man,it's going to be complete overkill but it's 100% dimmable on both channels so it's all good. Should have amazing color.

Hahahaha,nice choice of words man. I think it's like almost a inch thick and 6" long. It'll be a perfect fit for the tank.

That light looks nice. Looking forward to your other ideas Tom.

 

It will look awesome over that cube. Where are the controls for dimming?

 

I've got the sump done on mine. Finishing the plumbing tonight. Should have a writeup done in the next couple of days.

It should fit just fine,he said it was was 6" long so it should be good. It'll be my typhon controller. Unless I can sell my 2 typhon as buy another storm controller.

 

Sweet man,I'm looking forward to it. I really want to see what you did. I really want throw the idea of sumping my girls to clean up the tank a little. If you can,PM me some prices on how much everything cost and what you used ? I'd appreciate it man.

It's a super small light. With some strong light being emitted from it. Me neither man,it's going to be ridiculous.

Thanks man,though I cannot take the credit for building it. Someone else did. Yeah,it'll most likely use a Coralux 2up board with Mean Well 700mA drivers,one for each channel and a Typhon controller control the fixture. In my 7 gallon thread there is a post with the leds on each channel.
