Thank you sir!

 

My RB comes in today! I feel like a kid on Christmas waiting! My wife doesn't share the same excitement for some reason 🤔🙄

I hear ya’.  My wife has had me on lockdown before lockdown was even a thing. Trying to convince myself all these Independence Day sales I’m browsing through are just fake news. Fortunately, I can live out my coral dreams vicariously through you:)

Im glad you are liking the T5s! I have had a few ATI only tanks. Ill admit though I missed the led shimmer. Having that led bar probably fixes that well enough! 
 

As always, you are killing it with this tank. Love it!

So the RB was a major disappointment. 

 

Way too pink way too narrow of optics. Pretty disappointed 😞 will be returning

Ugh, they're probably going hit me with a restocking fee and such. After shipping and restocking fee this may be a total bust a waste.

That sucks, I was wondering how the 14k would look. I read a ton of reviews that people didn't care for the optics, but my spread seems great. I wonder if they used different optics for the new bar or maybe the way I have them both angled 🤷🏽‍♂️. Now I want to turn my RB bars on to look lol.

Yeah idk. I am going to have to pay shipping for sure. We will see what they say on their restocking fee....

 

Just ordered 2x 24in Current USA True Lumen Pro 453nm Strips. They are 16watts each and orginally I wanted a smidge more blue pop so these will do. They are slim and easy to mount and I also bought dimmers for each one to get the perfect color temp in the whole tank. These should do nicely.
