Well F me in the A I honestly thought it was a 6 bulb 😂😂😂 okay yeah definitelty a little over kill hahaha I stand corrected. 

I read some reviews and at 8" below fixture it was putting out around 400 par for the 24w. When it gets to the higher wattage fixtures the par can shoot up pretty high. I figure at hanging 12 to 14 inches above waterline. I should be good.

I now harness the power of the sun. Next haul is the rest of the equipment. I'm still undecided on return pump, heater and powerheads. I've bounced around on so many options. That im not even going to think about it again until the day I go to order.

Ok so we will have to wait a little bit. Ill probably work on the issue on Friday. Upon further inspection fedex must've totally disrespected the package because the reefbrite xho strips had been bent off the fixture. It like pulled the screws out of the housing. The box wasn't too beat up. So it must've just been from them handling it ruff and the weight of it the fixture just bent them right off. THE GOOD NEWS. Is that I have a plan!!! I've already bent the brackets back into shape and all I have to do is hull out screw holes for a slightly bigger fastener. No big deal at all. But I can tell you this. These things are bright!!!!

I honestly don't even think the leds will even serve a purpose on the light lol they will probably not even spill one bit of light in there seeming its 5.5" wider than your tank 😂

 

 At least spread and shadowing won't be an issue !!!

 If angled enough yeah,if not only the flooring will get hit lol. Hooefully they are usable though. More than likely they are,we shall find out. 

Contractors are starting on my roof next week. The giant hole from the pictures is already closed up and fixed. We have the insurance money so hopefully it won't take until may.

Too bad this thread died.

But the tank. She's a living. My house ended up not getting rebuilt for about another 2.5 years after that last post. I have since finished this tank and it's currently about 3 months since setup. I had setup a little Eshoppes Deskmate and had some Aussie live rock that I had purchased from Unique Corals that was about 6 months setup. I transferred that rock and a new package from TBS and this tank was born. It actually ended up being quite different from the original plan (imagine that). 

 

One big thing being that I didn't use the T5's. I decided to save those for a LARGER build if I continue to be successful with this tank. The tank i'm looking at for the future is the IM112 Lagoon. But that's not even in my vision right now. The T5's are in the closet put up safe.
