Deionization resin will remove all dissolved solids from your water until it is exhausted, which will realistically be in short order unless your tap water is only 1-3 TDS, but as soon as you feed...

OP, are you making sure to stay below a total of 45v on all strings?

And FYI, the LEDs that you got from fleabay are, at best, 40-60% of the output of an equivalent Philips or Cree LED, so unless...

I've had the HW-302 sitting unused since the tank I was going to be setting up didn't happen, and the current one is too small to use it effectively IMHO (especially with guppies), but now I've got...

Are these the ones? http://www.drsfostersmith.com/product/prod_display.cfm?pcatid=26107

If so, they have almost intensity to speak of, especially not for a 30" tall tank.

Sounds like they have dollar signs in their eyes thinking how much Excel you'd be buying from them. With a tank that size, a giant CO2 cylinder is about the only option that won't make you go broke.

LDD drivers float high when there is no PWM input. If they are put onto a PCB with a pulldown 10K resistor, that is a different story, but the LDD themselves will work with or without input.

That's aesthetics. The overall color temperature will be ~4000-4500K with the two LEDs at the same intensity, so if you want to bring that up you can add some royal blue, but it will also introduce...

You don't need much to do that. Steve's bin of the M put out ~1,280lm in white and ~6,070mW of royal blue with the diodes at 1000mA.
