RAY 2 Fixture
 
Hi Lowe, I thought I would post here to ask you about Ray 2. I was very curious about LED fixture and would like to try it on my first ever rimless tank and aquasoil tank. I was happy when I received the fixture, it was bright, slim and light weight. After getting my tank up and running for a month, I was quite disappointed, everything I grow turns green. Plants grow fast because of the high light but any color stems I bring in to this tank turns green or the colors faded. I dont know what the difference between fugeray and ray2 given the fugeray has lower par but I did saw at least some colors on another member's tank using fugeray.

What type of plants? And how deep? For deeper tanks I suggest the MonsterRAY pair. Here is a tank with a single RAY2. Also, what are your dosing/CO2 methods? Lighting is a part, but not the only part of the problem.

Light is about 10 inches from the substrate, pumping lots of co2 because of the size of this tank to avoid algae, drop checker is already yellow before light goes on, lots of surface agitation and dosing EI 3 times a week which is standard on 2 other 40gal high tech tanks i have with t5ho. Currently have didiplis diandra and ludwigia senegalensis as a test plant, the rest are just dhg foreground. Plants are trimmed from my exsiting tanks with good colors.
