These lights are freaking awesome.
Good to hear you are enjoying it :) I messed about with the manual mode to the colour rendition I liked then added it to my programme - when you have tweaked and used it for a few days I'd be interested to see what your percentage values are on Chanel A & B.

I won't tell you what I opted for on mine as it will be good to see if you chose somewhere near the same :)

It's really good. Surprisingly good for the money I paid. They're a steal at £400. What a range in spectrum too, really does go from a rich red to almost sea blue colour.

Btw, I'm sorry but mine are going on the ceiling :lol: they are sooooo slimline!

Glad I got some raybans too...

An update on this - well not really an update as I will be taking this scape down this weekend to make way for the next one :thumbup:

I knew this scape would not be a long lasting one, for me it was more about learning about the new tank and kit I had got and the change over from my old Juwel Trigon. Mainly getting used to the LED lights and different flow etc.

I have managed to get my hands on some fantastic pieces of Manzanita wood this week (i think the good lord was looking down on me) also I have decided to suspend my light system from a rail I have had fabricated and finally swap from my G6 filter to an Eheim with built in heater. While the tank is stripped down I also plan a few modifications on the cabinet, mainly for pipe work and so on.

Looking forward to getting cracking on it :)

Look forward to it mate!

Cheers Ian, some new CO2 glassware arrived today in the post and the mrs now seems to think I have a major problem! She seems to think I'm very odd in the fact that she has never seen someone so excited about a piece of glass :)

Thanks Mark - I have the new one set-up (only hard-scape) plants arriving on Friday so will plant up Saturday. My next scape has lots of Manzanita and will have a carpet... I don't want to give to much away yet;) as that's for the next journal.

It depends how it goes really for IAPLC 2014 - I might sneak another one in for that. I feel I have lots of scapes I'd like to try.... but only one tank. I'm trying to get a happy medium on a tank that runs easy-ish but looks stunning.
