Thank you, Jiinx! I'm over-joyed to hear that things are going better with your tank!! You're patience (crosses fingers) seems to be paying off very well now! You should be proud of yourself!!

Frank....thank you for subscribing! I'm going to try to do one more video tomorrow or Sunday showing the aquatic part. I'm also changing my lights tomorrow or Sunday, too, to the 16 bulb system. Should be intense!

Gary....go ahead!! It's easy enough! If I can do it, anyone can. You just have to be creative as to where you hide the output for the "fog"; it has to be discreet, or else it just ruins it.

Camera's ready for pick up! Should be able to take and post pics next week, ad nauseum.

New lights!! I finally hung them with the help of "Mrs. Don" and a "BrayN." Two fixtures, eight HO T5 bulbs a piece, so 16 bulbs total which is four more than my old fixture. I took a few pictures, but will get some more done tomorrow....I think this really says it all:



Looks a little bizarre, but the spectrum is pretty nice looking:




Here is it with four bulbs on:


More to come tomorrow.........Pretty burned out. Long day!

There's enough light coming out of those things to fry your retinas lol.

It was nice meeting you and "Mrs. Don" today, I enjoyed it very much. Thanks again, Don.

Thanks Sarah! I like the sleek, "finished" look of it. And, they work well. I will have to keep my eye on it and see how everything responds. I don't want to burn anything, but it is also a little bit higher than my last lights were too. We'll see what happens.

Yes, BrayN, you would know!! Thanks for stopping by and helping! I hope that you use the old light well for it's parts.

NC--It is! I would rather have too much than not enough. Plus, there's an industrial aesthetic to the fixture, and you should know how much I like Industrial!

Thank you Gentlemen (Marko, Obakemono, and Antbug)!!

Obakemono---Just like Anthony said, they are TEK's. TEK "Elite" 8's. I got them during the half-off sale. Stayed up most of the night to get 'em back on Black Friday. Totally. Worth. It! lol!! So much nicer looking than the big, white, bulky-looking pendant I had up. It completes the room. All I need now are to replace to curtain rods with a darker wood to match the book cases, throw some books and some manzy branches up on a few shelves, and that room will be finished. One room down......11 to go (right!.....).

LOL!! Thanks Nick! You can't miss a wavelength of the spectrum if you have a fixture and bulbs that give you all of them! Ha!! I gotta keep that Buce "variegated" variegated!

Thanks Devin! They are really sleek and look much better in person! Great lines!

I haven't been one here for awhile but I always have to check up on your tank and it looks beautiful as usual. What type are the red bulbs. Are they the UVL red sun?
