I'm official now... the Planted+ looks like a winner!







And just as a point of comparison, this was my single T5HO fixture from before:






It's kind of hard to tell from the pictures because my phone does a really poor job, but the Planted+ is a much warmer light and creates a much more even "glow" throughout the tank. I can't believe how well it penetrates all of the floating plants I have in there (which, btw, there were no floaters in the pic of my old lighting).

I'd suggest 2 planted + and if they're too much you can put window screen or hang them

Here you go guys...pictures of my finnex fixtures at work. I guess I am a premium member in this club for putting so many fixtures on one tank. lol

Images taken at baseline manual aperture/iso/shutter speed used at the moon LED photo.

Planted + "moon led" only


Planted + "all on"


Planted+ + Finnex ray 2


Planted+ + (2x finnex ray 2)

Picked up a couple of Ray2s last spring, a 48" for my tropical tank and a 36" for one of the goldfish tanks. Loved 'em ever since.

Then I spotted the "Black Friday" sale Lowe dropped.

Now, there are monsters stalking in my direction . . .

Thanks, Lowe!

I've been quite impressed with the clean light and quality fixtures - add my voice to the swelling chorus above, 'cause I really do like these Finnex lights a lot!

I just ordered my first Finnex product. A 24" Planted+. I'm excited for it to come in. Has anyone found any PAR data on it. I was a little skeptical seeing as how you would think the company would have to tools necessary to measure the PAR and would be kind enough to put it on there site but I have heard so much good about Finnex that I just decided to trust them. I'll try to get some pics posted once I get the light in an installed.

How do I become official? I ordered a 24" Planted+ on Tuesday. It was supposed to be here yesterday but didn't come. Hopefully it will be at home when I get there today. I'll hook it up and post pictures. Its a new tank though so it looks nothing like some of the others posted here.

Default 25" Planted+

Just got the Planted+ for half of my 150 to try. Has a better spectrum than my 2 DIY's on the other half. Plants would not thrive under them. I'm going to add a 36" on my Oceanic 58+ that currently has a DIY LED conversion on it. Was all the craze a few years ago. Gutted my Current CF fixture and used the case for the heat sink. All 6500k. What should I add to it?

And, how do I become bonafide here?

Great thread BTW.

Ya, sorry. We've been having all sorts of problems with USPS and FEDex shipments lately due to weather.

Im about to become a Finnex member just trying to decide which light to go with. Tank is a planted standard 15 gallon tank. 14 inches from substrate to rim of tank. My question is to go with the planted+ or the fugeray or the fugeray2?
