are you running red LEDs or anything other than cool white on yours Naekuh?
i tried everything...
I ran the bridgelux cool white.. which are near the cree's... not there but near..
and i ran the 660nm reds, and i ran the 10w arrays..
if u ask me... the 10W arrays are the BEST. Color spectrum falls in 5000-7000k so its not too blue.
They have what in my eyes looks like the closest daylight u can get.... have enough of them, and it looks like the sun is hitting your tank directly.
The bridgelux give off a slight blue.. which most of u guys are complaining about..
In honestly i dont think u need any blue in your array unless its purely for bling, you get enough blue in the spectrum from the cool white.
I decided to pretend to be smarter then hoppy and others and added red...
660nm.... i realized why they only use it on canibus plants now and not fish tanks... although they may work in a air setup really good... non submerged.
It attracts hair algae on epic sizes... or in my tank it did... and i tested it with intensity on different led's and kept getting hair algae when i added the red.
I remember reading... blue light stunts growth on plants... while the red makes them grow longer... Well it makes algae GROW VERY VERY VERY VERY LONG too... lololol....
if u guys ask me... the chinese 10W the ones u can get either in circle or square are the BEST... and i will stand by this.. this is why people u see with LED flood lights, aka 10W or higher class, work, and the owners are happy.
infact, im getting a couple more in and i think this time i may send hoppy one to run though his par meter and give me real numbers, and i bet you hoppy will agree the 10W's are the BEST.
