Lol, I spoke too soon, sorry guys/gals, and especially OP. I never had algae eaters and had no idea they exhibited that kind of behavior! Wow.

In a heavily planted tank with aggressive fish mixed with slow docile ones, it's just part of nature, the docile fish will have to hold their own or be quick and alert. I have a 120g community tank...

I wasn't able to edit my last post:
Well, the trick seemed to work to me. I saw separate red, blue and green lights relecting off the Bluray, all close in a row for each diode when I tested the BW...

Very cool trick, Solcielo! I tested the BW freshwater pink 162 x 0.2w 48" fixture against a red/blue hydroponic light using this method, both in complete darkness except for the LEDs themselves,...

Jeffrol, I'm far from an LED pro, so I hope I am understanding what you wrote, but I believe the pink fixture has enough green as well. Like I said, I actually like the LOOK of the fixture by...

Sorry, just realized you have razor fixtures. I'm not familiar with those, but I don't think they will outshine the pink fixtures. Get ready for more light though, believe it or not, one 48" pink...

The 'pink' BW fixture is only available with 0.2w LEDs. If you have a fixture with 1w LEDs, (this is my opinion after trying different combos on one tank) the fixture with the stronger LEDs will...

Wow. Very interesting read, thanks to all for that info. I really bought my 65k fixtures with the intent of changing out the diodes (at least some), so all of these comments help. Reason being I...

I loosely tied the stalks together at the bases with thread and anchored them with the thread 'planted' into the substrate in two places of the 90g. I did the same for the 120g, so I know that...

Yes! The fry tanks are probably lower in pH....oh, and the plants are growing haha, especially the anacharis. I could test everything later if needed.

If you prefer the look of the 10k/actinic by itself and it works great for you, I wouldn't add a pink strip. It will change the colour rendition completely. If you will be using it on a deeper tank,...

I think when you soak the soil, it will compress on it's own. I am not sure of the proper answer for this, but I guess when I prepare a dirted tank (now, after trying out deep substrate beds and...

I feel your burden with the BBA. It crept into my 90g, and I haven't been able to get rid of it for two years now. I think I killed my foreground with so much h202 (it sinks). My BBA is more green...

Just bought 3 x 48" BW 65k 1W x 54 fixtures. One to replace the BW 0.5W saltwater 10kk spectrum w/ too many actinic lights (I bought by mistake), and two for my 120g.

Ok, I know the light won't...
