Yes, I did search and couldn’t find much pertaining to this particular light, but has a anyone used one of these? The price difference between this and the Finnex 24/7 has me thinking. The reviews are great from what I’ve read on amazon.. it will be going on a godless 40 tall planted with co2 https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B07XB...KHTLNOI4&psc=1

I have one and love it, but I don't think it's comparable to the Finnex 24/7 at all. In my experience, it's a tiny bit brighter than the Finnex Stingray (although I don't have a PAR meter to check), meaning that it's more suited to low-tech tanks. I like it better than the Stingray though, considering that it's not only a bit brighter but also cheaper and has a dimmer and timer on top of that.

I see potential with this light. Should be enough for my 10g.

What are the odds that all the wires needed to run this from a TC420 are available at the hand control?

@jeffkrol

Yea looks 2 channel so should be good to go..
12V power supply..
One thing though..seems some lights aren't "positive ground" anymore..which is a possible issue..

I think I found my next project. Have you seen any alternatives to the TC420? I thought I saw a WiFi programmable unit with equivalent features but now I canít find it.

The 421 looks interesting.


Finally found that one I was looking for. Might be an alternative to the TC units.

This could be fun. Itís designed for their brand of light but maybe, just maybe it could work on a diy. I just need to find the max current that they can push.
