    cool...that means i can have it come on lunchtime till eve

    gonna have to cut it back or have a much longer dusk and dawn until the corals get used to the extra light..

    although i get fantastic spread and uniformity on the luminarcs,,the ati's are double the par IIRC from when i tested

    hehe! I actually think his 2 aqua rays have been what have made his tank what it is today. His lumenarcs are redundant next to them beasts!
