man, pretty tough to take a good photo.

anyways this is basically the start.

You can barely see the small amount of HC in there ha ha ha! Im lame. I just put an order in today for a pot of new HC at my LFS. Not really sure i want to wait 6 months before i can flood the dang thing.

got my new GU10 9 watt bulb over the thing. Visually it appears a bit dimmer at the edges of the tank. I might replace the 30 degree optics for 60s. Or.....ive read people say the 9 watters heat up too much and burn out quickly. First what is quick? in LEDs quick could mean 5 years. So i may build a 3 bulb 3x1 GU 10 light. will see what happens.
