    Hi guys, im busy with my current project, (a xenon lit lighting unit:p) so, I was surfing the net looking for more information on these bulbs and how to best apply them to a reef tank when i found this sight, and thought I should share it with you guys.

    Its extremely informative and detailed and will make for a good read to anyone that’s interested in understanding a little more about there lighting Or, use it just for reference, as it has some cool graphs and comparisons, like the one with the MH and LEDS.

    Enjoy … http://www.americanaquariumproducts.com/Aquarium_Lighting.html#hid :peroni:

    Lol, i saw that too:lol: he used the wrong reflectors i think he was trying to make them look like canon LEDS but he didn't keep in mind that the light bulbs have different properties.
    There are others out there that have done it correctly and its not bad at all...

    i will try to get some pictures...
