LED DIY Replacement for older Eclipse hood
Thanks Hoppy for the advice. I cut back to 4 hours and added better co2 diffusion. This helped with algae and growth and color.
I recently had the time and reduced the led current to <500 mA. I forgot to measure before i put it back together. This is less than half of what they are rated for but I am seeing daily growth on stem plants and apons finally started looking normal and sending up flower stalks. This had not happened during my two weeks with the long intense lighting. I am returning to my ten hour lights on.
I think my fish appreciate it as well.
