Finnex LED owners unite! or at least join the club


I upgraded the light on my 20 long with a Finnex Ray2. WOW! What a difference. My plants started to pearl once I upgraded my Marineland single-bright to the Ray2. My aquarium addiction has since grown and now also have a 29 gallon planted community that I hope to replace with a new LED system (currently running a single t8).



Sorry for the poor cell phone pic.

You're going to have algae problems soon if you're not running CO2 (I don't see any drop checker or diffuser in your tank). It may be heaven for some otos though!

Thanks for the heads up. I am running sugar/yeast co2 at the moment. Considering running full co2. I am already seeing algae pop up.

Can you recommend a Finnex light for a 10 gallon. Not looking for high light but would like to grow more that java fern and anubias.

24" Fugeray on a 10 gallon is what I run. PAR is insane at the depth of the 10 gallon so i needed to place a mesh screen thing to act as a filter for the light. Reduces the PAR from like 80->40 which makes it a lot more easy to manage the tank. Also, at 50 PAR you can pretty much grow anything. Maybe use the smaller fugeray.

How did you mount a 24" light onto a 20" tank? I don't have an option to hang it. Do you have any pics?

Hello!

Does anyone of you Finnex users know if the power supply of the fixtures is rated for 230 Volts input??

I have tried to contact Aqua Vibrant, but they dont reply.

Hope some of you users can help me out

the legs are adjustable, it just might cut out a couple of the LED's. Or just set the light on the top of the tank, the legs only give a little lift over the tank.

I have the fugeray+R clip on for my 7.5 gallon cube, I've seen great growth in the dwarf sag and all of the anubias plants are putting out a leaf every 3 weeks. I am definitely getting a 30" Ray II when I redo my 29 gallon tank!

EDIT: Oh no, was I too late? Are people still being added to the club? I just realized this thread was started almost 2 months ago.
