Actual, all under the EHEIM LEDs, some are much bluer than others (pretty rare), i.e. if you put it in a plastic bucket overnight it's still blue, whereas the others fade color to conform with the substrate.

Same as PFRs and high grade sakuras vs. RCS. RCS only darken to high light and a dark substrate, PFR/high grade sakuras retain their coloration regardless of the environment and lighting.

Update:



The middle still needs to fill in some more. Slow but progressing.

Still looking awesome, I see!

Complete with a rogue CRS trying to get all up inside the filter - ha.

Every night without fail, makes me think it might be oxygen deprived, hmm.. the others settled in fine.

Picked up 10x super tigers today, unfortunately 1 was DOA (berried one too) but the rest are very active

You probably can't tell, but there are 6 berried Rilis in this shot!

Feeding time, I've start only using this tank for PFR helmet-head Rilis.

Added some Chara sp., they love the macroalgae, must be the calcium carbonate coating.

Hey had a question.. i am thinking of getting a second bulb.. where can I get one online? Did you buy just the extra bulb or the fixture as well?

I have no idea, I have an extra bulb b/c the first tank they sent me arrived in pieces. I know the LED fixture alone retails for $99.. might try http://parts.eheim.com/

When mine burns out I plan on replacing it with the Finnex 26W CFL
