I do not have the dimmer and I do not have that issue you are describing here...
I have mine connected to an Apex Jr. and it is on a Sunrise/Sunset timer with instant on/off. No change in brightness during poweron or poweroff.

|minicrazy592||The dimmer could definally have better precision, but I leave mine at a set %. If you want to see some growth click my 30-C link in my sig. It's pretty amazing. It's one of their 12" fixtures with my own spectrum.|

My dimmer doesnt seem to work through the full range of the dial either. it quickly goes from the min to max, while still allowing me to turn the dial considerably more.
other than these minor issues, the amount of oxygen bubbles in the tank increased a whole lot after less than an hour with the LED on top. So it's definitely powerful enough for a planted tank. I'm really looking forward to the growth.

|minicrazy592||My 36" does that. Sort of interesting as well as how long it stays lit after it's unplugged.|

have you noticed the fade up to max brightness before shutting off when unplugging the fixture?
Did you get the dimmer as well?

Re: [Review] BuildMyLED.com LED Fixture
Is there any options of dimming?

glad to hear this. I'll be ordering two 36".
I'm tempted to order one now to toss on my 20g long for the time being.

|ronaldvalente||So far everything is amazing with the BuildMyLED fixture. Getting a lot of PMs about it. Build quality is amazing. Performance is top notch. No issues or problems to report on. I need to balance out my ferts to get some algae growth under control. Much better than the Power Compacts I was running before.|

I would definitely go with dual 24's then you can select one to be freshwater planted and the other to be the freshwater show. You also can use two diff lenses to light the bottom and top of the tank.
Hope this helps.

since both my tanks are 30" in length, they do not have a 30" as a standard length LED light. I went to the website and looked at the pricing for the 24" and 36". Seems like the 24" is way cheaper than 36". Say, if I order 2 24" lights vs if I order 1 36" light, the difference between them is only $10. From my quick observation, the pricing seem to favor a shorter length.
Hmmmm..... Something more for me to think about.
Also, do you have approximate PAR data for your LED light? I know its a little too much for me to ask for this info, but I figure that you may have that data from your research and communication with the seller. If so, can you please share it with us?
