Fish from Philly Hey - Wanted to share my experience with BML:

Called Nick and he answered all my questions. The light shipped quickly, was easy to hook up, and was waaaaaaaay brighter than the doublebright Marineland LEDs I had prior. The red nodes really bring out the colors of the rummynoses, cardinals, and fire red discus.

A few weeks later while on vacation, I returned to see a portion of the LED was not on. Nick sent a new one the next day and I shipped him back my old one after I received it. Customer service is impeccable and product is great!

Build My LED Hi guys/gals. The Configurator will be back online shortly. There was a conflict in the web coding, so we decided to create a dedicated site for the Configurator. Hope to have it up within the next week or so. Feel free to call or email with any specific needs you may have until we get it back online.

Yes, I miss the old configurator, and I hope we can compare to the new list of presets(haven't been to your site in months).

Honestly it is going to come down to a value comparison between you guys and Finnex's new planted+. I have a Finnex Fugeray on a 46G now that I plan on moving over to a 40B. So I will be looking for either 6 Finnex fixtures, or 3 of yours to go on another 40B, 55G, 46G. I would prefer there to not be a non-white color to be shinning directly over the crossbars on the 55G and 46G, which is why I am waiting to see the configurator.

If I go with the Dutch Planted, tank mounts, and dimmers, I am looking at a hefty $842.61 :/

Finnex started a club on planted tank, offering a 15% discount, do you have plans to do the same? Maybe I can try to keep both of your companies doing well.

Sajacobs Love my led light from these guys. Worth every penny. My goldfish colors really stand out and my plants are growing beautifully.

Nick has a great thing going at

To answer your question, I ordered a 48 w/ dimmer and ceiling mounts. I think it came out to be about $360.
I am looking forward to it coming in hopefully this week.

Whiskey This is awesome! I stumbled across your service a few months ago and thought it is a really wonderful idea! I can't wait for my next tank so I can build a custom fixture for it and make it exactly how I want it. I love all the details you give about the fixtures as well, especially the par values at different depths and distance from center.
