In the words of Robin Williams in Bicentennial Man: "One is glad to be of service." Seriously though, I never thought this would get as much appreciation as it has, or grow as big as it has.

I've ordered the adjustable aluminum mounting brackets for the TrueLumens, which are for a 60-P. I'm curious to see whether they can be adjusted/bent enough to make the 12" version work on the Mini M. If so, then that's the way to go, both in terms of light and aesthetics.

I also ordered a couple 16" Finnex Ray II lamps. Their arms are supposed to be adjustable too, so I'll let you know how that turns out.
Here's an example found from this forum here, that shows what the GroBeam 1000ND can accomplish and it's light output. Of course you should also notice how high it is positioned above the tank and the footprint of the tank itself, along with the plant types involved, however, if the fixture were lowered, I imagine HC, Glosso, etc. wouldn't be much of a problem until tank dimensions become deeper and larger, thus necessitating more than a single tile:

Just adding my readings and findings for an Led emitter I found that produces excellent plant growth. when I find a PAR meter I can borrow I will take some PAR readings.

Same suggestion. If you want help or information about a fixture, ask in the forums, This is a place to post information about fixtures.

Please add radion, and any info you can find about using its individual diming on reds for better freshwater application.

Thanks for the post! I use it as my led bookmark for everything from considering replacement to just drooling!

Lightbulb Grobeam 1000ND

Hello all. Just thought that I would post a few additional pics of the fixture I'm using for reference. Samamorgan, I hope you don't mind me jacking your thread by posting these photos here, I just thought that for people considering LED fixtures (as I was not that long ago) pictures really do speak for themselves much more effectively than descriptions do. You will note below in these photos, that I only have one light tile on the metal rail, but a second is waiting to be added. The entire top of this Grobeam 1000ND is extruded metal (aluminum I imagine) and acts as a heatsink. Within that are channels of metal onto which the rail slides and from which the tile hangs to wire spring hangers that screw into the ends for attaching to the ceiling with a ferrule.



As you can see in this photo below, it is quite bright for an LED fixture and this is a raw image fresh from the camera with no white balance adjustments (flash off).



Here is an example of the light intensity 34" from the light fixture, down to my driftwood sitting on my bedroom floor (waiting for it's new 90P home, lol).

Great post, and I don't mind at all. That's what this thread is for, getting the information out there.
