LOL, thanks. I've done a lot of LED lighting and solder work, just trying to avoid building my own track and soldering multiple LEDs. Plus my dad is an EE and is always confirming/critizing the stuff I build. LOL.

Thanks again!

I think that is the place commonly known as FCBZ (Substract one letter from each to get the secret name)

I saw this and was like ".........*stare at screen for 30 seconds*......what....?" and then it clicked. Thanks for frying my brain, Hoppy.

On topic, this is a really nice setup. Seems like this would be perfect for a nano tank the way the light is focused. Great job!

Sorry to jump in your thread but you don't have to hard wire these in. You can buy a 4' piece of track and a plug in connector ( http://www.lowes.com/pd_120827-38269...e|0&facetInfo= ) for under 20 bucks. No need to cut in ceiling box, etc. (especially if you're electrical skills are questionable).

Have you figured out how to diffuse those hot spots directly under the lamps to even out plant growth?

Never argue with a fool. Onlookers often can't tell the difference.
Growing older is mandatory, growing up is optional.
My advice is free and worth every penny.
