Thanks for the reply. I guess my terminology may be off a little. My thought was the tank isn't automated and doesn't dosing equipment. I still use analog timers still so I feel a bit old school....

I bought tow of the 48"ers. Got them hooked up today and they seem nice. I definitely need more light though. Would you add two more or try to complement them with something else?

Thanks for the replies. I've slowed the Val with a barrier but it wasn't a complete fix. Maybe worth a shot though.

It's 96x30x24-300 gallon. I just have a bulb out and figured it would be a good time to slowly transition. I see AH also has led conversion kits. Not sure if this makes sense to go that route?
