Awesome, was curious if the dimmers would work for existing fixtures?

I'm sorry, it would be for the new generation of fixtures. That said, word on the street is that users have already found ways to dim the FugeRAY and Ray2. Though, we never promote tampering with our fixtures

Is the dimmer able to be programmed to replicate light cycles on a timer, or are they not there just yet?

With both fixtures we are working out the kinks with an add on that allows users to controller their light intensity at any given preset time.

Can't wait.

As long as these are available in various sizes with adjustable feet :P

Can we get the led incident angle a bit wider? Some with wide but shallow tanks appreciate it

What would also be a nice option - heavy duty power brick with multiple outlets to power multiple units on a single plug. Maybe offer them in 2/3 outlet sizing for those of us with tanks utilizing multiple units.

I just ordered a Ray 2 a few days ago have not received it yet. I'm replacing a Current Satellite + that is all bells and whistles and not quite up to snuff for my planted tank. I thought I saw it listed as appropriate for plants Ooops. So I bought the Marineland red accent hidden light to assist with it's 660nm reds. So since then I've learned much more about LED Thanks to this site and it has led me to Finnex and other more appropriate sources of LED lighting. I have 180.00 in what amounts to inadequate purchases in lighting for my 10gal planted tank. The Finnex Ray2 was around 70.00. Live and learn. I won't make any jumps into Co2 with out first doing finishing my plantedtank.net homework Thanks and Take Care
