    Your sticks are looking too awesome! The colour is really starting to stand out on them (that last one is really, really gorgeous)!

    Looking great D - you switched lights now or still on the t5's? Looks like those cubes are working nice.

    Hey 2una - Finally things have settled...the frustrations to get to this stage :m85:
    Now to keep it there!

    I am still on the ATI 8x80W but had a 180W LED fixture made that I added on either side of the ATI (Full Spectrum). This has helped with the shimmer and colour - ATI is currently running at 40% to ensure reduce chances of bleaching. Will add some pics to the other build thread.

    Nice to hear & you can see the differance, i don't think you need to worry about bleaching anything with the sunpower,mine wasn't a dimmable & didn't cook anything,these maricultured we get here i have a feeling the more the better,I still can't even hurt anything i have with the 4xg4 now on 100% ab+ , considering strapping another one on.

    Thank you for the advice (as always)... I was not too worried about the ATI rather adding 180W LED onto of 100% ATI power - that this additional light would cause problems....thus reduced the ATI to compensate...will start ramping up the Sunpower 10% a week and see how it goes.
