I totally agree Mike. These lights are great. I'm getting awesome growth from all plants including my normally slow growing crypts. (Does anyone know what crypts they are. Bright purple underside, olive green top side)? My dad acquired them in the 60's and no LFS here sells them or even knows what they are.
Here are two pics showing day one after installing the Fluval and then two weeks progress.
We don't have Finnex lights here in Australia so I can't compare but I'm very happy so far.
Went from 4 x 54w T5HO, 2 powerglo, 2 6500k using Hagen Glo kits with individual Gieseman reflectors, to 3 x 30w 6500k led floodlights to the current 1 x 48w Fluval.
Had to turn up my CO2 as I started getting a little BBA.
Getting good pearling 10 minutes after light on. Had to wait an hour or so running the T5's.
No regrets here.
