How are you liking the Finnex Ray II DS 7000k/7000k LED fixture? Would it provide too much light for a low-tech tank (no added CO2, or perhaps just a liquid supplement)? It looks terrific, though...

Terrible photos of my guppies

Japan Blues and Ginga sulfureus (gray and blond). The gray ginga was more cooperative than the blond. Oh, and yes, I do know the gups may eat some of my very tiny CRS, but I am overrun with them!
