trouble/w site/computer connection


Not a fault of yur site but rather my computer is on strike/w me due to crash
and I can't connect to the customize section. Hopefully a near future event will help this.
Actually I'm looking for something most would call the opposit of other peoples normal needs. I want to design(by use of the graph section) a low
PAR light specifically plant friendly for a 10g tank.
I do intend to have it suspended from either a shelf bracket or the ceiling
so size can be the smallest to cut my expenses.
So could you supply me with a list of available bulb spectrums that I might
work on my concept, in mind so to speak till my computer issue is resolved.
I tried another brand of LED and did not like the directional focus of them.
It could be argued that the sun points only down so it too leaves shadows.
But I'm hoping that by bringing this light up off the tank I can spread the beams so as to at least get better coverage than was had by the one which I put on the top of the tank. Due to the closeness of the light to the sub, it looked like someone had a couple of flashlights pointed down into the tank. But also there were far fewer bulbs and all white so/w yours I should
get much better results.

Hi Raymond,

What are the dimensions of the tank? How high above the tank will the light be suspended? I can get to work on this as soon as I have this data.

Thanks!

OK well I'll need to do this from memory then. I will work out how high it
is over the tank/w estimates based on a display in a thread I have +/- 3"
and adjust from there but I am going to need one panel/w these bulbs.
G= green (but which if aplicable)
3 digit=nm
4 digit=K
+G/650/5700/460/650/5700/650/G/460/5700/650/460/5700/650/G
This is actually my concept based on 22" from substrate but in/on a 10g tank. The plus sign indicates where it has an electrical cord.
Target PAR is 50-60
