Hi @Barnhartmd05197,

Welcome to TPT!

Since the spectrum is adjustable by adjusting the output of the various LED colors I would guess the spectrum chart that might be most relevant would be the one done at maximum output of all colors.

I would assume the same thing. I just can't find a spectrum chart anywhere online for that light. Just wanted to know if anyone that owns it had it on the box or in the box.

You have to make sure youre on the USA site and not Canada. I couldn't find it, and thats what I figured out. You'll have to scroll about half way through the item list. I just bought one from Kensfish.com using the code FLUVAL - it still gave a discount.

Hey @ABrandt, did you receive an order number with yours? I also ordered this LED from Kensfish today, but I'm a little nervous. It said there was a problem with my card during the online order process, but when I checked the bank statement it showed a pending charge to KensFish for the amount of the light. I tried to email and call the store today, but just got the voicemail. I'm hoping this doesn't get hung up in limbo for an extended period of time.

The one at kensfish does not look like the new 3.0 model but rather the old one.

All,

I am wondering if anyone has a recommendation on what % to run this light at (24 inch version) over a 20 G long tank (with about 2 inches of substrate). Shooting for Low / Medium light plants...no CO2. I have it for my new tank and getting ready to add some plants. I was thinking of using their planted profile and then dialing all the settings back to about 40% of where they started, and going up from there. But, what do folks think? I don't have access to a par meter so I can't actually check.

Hi @sfb911,

It would depend upon your photoperiod and how you configure the various color LED's but I would start with 30% then wait a week and if algae isn't becoming as issue move to 40% and so on until you start having algae problems then back down 10%.

Right now, I'm running 9am - 10am Sunrise, 10am - 9pm Daylight and 9pm - 10pm Sunset. I'm not tied to these just what I went with when I set it up. I could certainly shorten the photo period or increase the length of sunrise / sunset (I just want to make sure the lights are on until about 10pm so I can enjoy the tank). Really trying to avoid adding CO2 if I can, but we'll see how long that last

Do you think thats too long of a photo period for this light?

Thanks,
Steve

I did see Kens with the 3.0 over the weekend for with a discount code bringing a high price down to "normal".
Kens price was high.

Google

saltwateraquarium 82 Bucks OTD- Fee shipping and (quote)..."buy most everything we sell and return it within 30 days for any reason. We will offer either a refund, replacement or store credit".

Aquarium Co-Op 76 Bucks before shipping. You also pay return shipping.

I nabbed one to compare to the Kessil A80s for the Wendtii and anubias low light larger aquariums.
I'm sure that 3.0 Nano can kick more than nano tanks.
