The vertict is still out but im now considering buying a Finnex Ray 2. The lights do grow plants well, im growing UG, HC, Glosso and Even L. Shaeracarpa is doing well but i regret buying the higher lumens after realizing that for the cost at $39.00 each plus 2 pendents (From Ikea) totaling $95.00 i could have just bought a Ray 2 or competitor light and maybe had a bit more control over the light range. but overall this is a considerable option..

here is a pix of my setup.

Wow how nice. Reminds me of the Amano type tanks in TFH.
