Can you give us some specifics on the Par38 bulbs?

where did you buy them
how much watts are they
was it a kit or did you have to buy the fixture aside from the ikea bowls?

thanks

Looks awesome. I know that rapidled.com carries a par38 6500k made for planted tanks. I use the par38's they have for reef tanks, and the quality is very high.

Not a lot of info about it on that site.

I'm going with these, unless I find a dimmable offered @ 6500K

I just ordered one from rapid. Hopefully it'll work well over my tank.

I just wanted to say I really appreciate the deliberate minimalism of this journal. Your build shows enough to inspire, which promotes experimentation and innovation by others. I also use very similar LEDs on every planted terrarium/aquarium/paludarium I build. They grow plants better than I've ever experienced before.

Nice tank! Is that a custom built stand?

Where did you get that cylinder chrome plated at?
