    No. XR-15 freshwater is somewhat designed for freshwater.. Rest are reef centric but usable for most planted tanks.. Just cut down on the blue channel..

    Thank you sir! If you say I'm good then I'll let it run for a bit and see if my dwarf baby tears and Monte Carlo do well. Greatly appreciate your time and expertise!

    Phone app says 3167 Lux at 24" thus 47 par. My light to substrate is 16" if that changes much. Should I just get a finnex and be done or another fixture that you recommend? I like tinkering but not if I can get high end light fully controllable and what I just built is medium at best. Thanks, sorry for all the questions.

    Not what I wanted to hear! Smh what should I add in order to get "high" lighting? I have another power supply and 2 Steve's drivers I could use plus the 6 additional 6500k I pulled out. Just tell me what you'd add and I'll follow your advice! Thanks again!

    Sorry to bother you again. Where do you think my lighting power sits? Medium, medium-high, high? If not in the high range what should I add to get me there? Thanks again!

    Hey Jeff

    Been trying to do some reading online regarding the DSunY plant lights and getting the channel intensity and duration adjusted properly for my setup. I came across a forum post of yours showing a picture of your custom program for your DSunY. I was wondering how heavily planted your setup is and the size. Im trying to get an idea of where I need to be at with mine and work it down or up from there.

    Any input is always appreciated.

    Measure the distance from about the tube to top of the substrate.
    Type of t5 and reflector quality ect. makes a lot of difference.
    If you find a matching type just multiply PAR found at depth by a ratio
    2 tube equiv. and you have 5 at say 50PAR
    5/2 x 50 = 125
    What is high light is another question w/ multiple answers.

    Out of curiosity, do you have any PAR data on T5s in 24" of water? In my thread on the plant forum, I've been getting told I'm at super duper high light with 5 T5s on a 120. I was under the impression, especially since they are mounted to the top of an 8" canopy, that I was closer to the higher range of medium light. I know you are an LED guy, but do you have any good threads or information on them?

    Jeff,
    There is someone on TPT selling a 36 inch BML 1 x 10000K Planted - XB Series Length: 36", Beam Angle: 90 Degree, Fixture Color: Silver)
    1 x SoLunar Controller for $249.00
    Which is the light I am looking for with the controller.
    They stated:
    I had an ADA Iwagumi tank running from January 18, 2015 to July 24, 2015.
    Looks like they have only 1 post on TPT.
    This is the only thing that makes me nervous.
    Seems like a good buy.
    Should I buy new and just forget about this one :/
    What do you think??
    Thank you ,
    Laura
