jbrady33 The one on the left is some "scud prison" - the main tank had fricken scuds and I turkey baster them out and stick them in there.

The cube on the left now has a family of RCS that started with 3 juvies, here is what it looks like now:

the Current Led+ would also work well mounted under a cabinet their 18 -24 inch light is actually under 18 inches slightly without legs on it.

jbrady33 have had great results with the Finnex lights (mine are Fugerays), but you would have to rig the mounting, they don't come with an under-counter type brackets. (not that hard if you are a little handy, some pieces of coat hanger and a few screws would do it and be completely out of sight.)

All LED so runs cool and low electric usuage

jbrady33 With the blues and whites on together it is nicely between warm and cool - nicely white and crisp.

With just the whites it is warmer

CL Hmm thanks for the feedback. What color would you describe the light? Cool white?

No Co2 on this tank - but I do add one drop (from an eyedropper) each of Excel, macros and micros once or twice a week. I also add Fluval shrimp mineral supplement to the water change water.

it was MORE than enough light. The tank is less than 9" tall, when I first put the Fugeray on I ended up with BBA, had to raise the light an mount i under the shelf over the tank (and cut down on water changes, I was doing way too much)
