Looks great. I guess I consider you to be a bit brave delving into the realm of LEDs when you already knew that T5HOs would do the job. I still have some research to do on LEDs. The link to the site with which you dealt (buildmyled) is helpful.

If you are experiencing that much growth, do you have any plans to dial back the light a bit? If so, will you use a dimmer or merely raise the lights a bit?

Your fish look awesome and you have a very interesting collection of plants. Keep posting pics.

PS on a tank that big, you may want to move the drop checker from time to time to make sure everything is ok.
