Same thing happened to me! Fortunately the light worked just fine.

May I ask how much PAR (at the substrate level) you guys shoot for and if you run CO2?

Between the Fugeray and Ray II, ive got between 30 and 49 PAR and my aim is for a medium light tank that doesnt require CO2 and regular fert regime but still provides for compact growth.

According to the PAR charts posted by Lowe, I'm getting around 50 at the substrate, which puts me right at medium light. I'm also injecting CO2. I'm already getting really good growth!

Awesome - I'm intending to replace my older PC light with a Ray II when they come out with the 30" model. Maybe one day ill upgrade my T5HO lighting to LED eventually but I kind of slowly phase out older stuff to avoid the hit on my wallet...
