Since I'm running two of the 36" Ray II LED's on my tank, I've noticed when the timer kicks them on in the AM, it's like the Sun blasting the tank all at once. I was thinking about a auto-controlled dimmer that would hook between the timer and lamps to bring the light level up slowly so the fish don't drop fins when it comes on. Any ideas or plans would be appreciated...

I did look at some of the home automation stuff. But the info shown is not very clear about how well it would work for my purposes. Plus the programming looks serious complicated.

Hi Finnex! As you can see above, I'm (and some others) are looking to fit a dimmer on Ray II's. Fortunately, depending how you look at it, another Member told us about the electrical problems that could arise from using a regular old dimmer. My question is, does Finnex have any ideas or input on how to accomplish this?

I LOVE my Finnex! Thanks!
