Hey Chiefston, I was going to wait until later to start a new thread, but I feel you should hear it first, my design was slightly flawed. I couldn't stand that there was zero room for maintenance and access. There was plenty of lightly but the restrictions were too much. Also the angled heat sinks don't do too much as all light once hits the water pretty much goes down, does hit help? Maybe.. Was it worth the extra effort to get them made? Not really. I removed the top half of the glass which was fairly easy and hung the led unit high above the tank. I absolutely love it now. It now has a canister filter ehiem 2211 and co2. The fluval edge is a bastard of tank to work with.
