But here it goes. Some of you may have seen my spray bar and false wall build in the DIY section so bare with me for the first few posts. I am going to cosolidate the entire build here from the ground up!
Can't wait for pics!
Those lights should work great. 11.2 wpg sounds crazy but they're only pcs and the reflector is not that good.
I just set up a 12" rimless glass cube lit up with two 50/50 Current PowerBrite LED strips. Lots of ripple and very bright. Uses 8 watts! I will work on pics!
Cubical: I am going to be making my own reflectors out of actual mirror so ALL the light will be directed into the tank.
Also the tank is only 8" deep so even tho they are compact flourescent that's still a Lot of light in a small area.
Mattskims: They are 14" long so when centered there will still be an inch on the ends.
Thanks fishy! I didnt really want to drive the 2 hours to my nearest LFS to get some rock rubble that would work. Ya i figure a little overspray would only help protect the deck from the elements even more!! (plus its already a crappy deck)
