    Well my LEDs arrived at post net today so I'll get my hands on them tomorrow. I ordered them with Hadi's group order and a big thanks to him for all the work he put in to help a total stranger. And thanks to those who offered advice during the decision making period.
    I ordered a 36 led kit and added an extra six LEDs to my order giving me a grand total of 24 royal blue and 18 white. I also ordered a 4led moonlight kit and a typhoon controller.
    I'd like to have a sunrise/sunset type of setup and need some advice on how to to split my colors up between the three drivers. I was thinking two units more blue dominant for the sunrise and sunset and then the other one more white for the midday period. Any advise would be greatly appreciated

    I got my LEDs tonight now the build can begin. I got hold of butcherman who advised me on the number of LEDs each driver can handle. I've planed my layout as well as my split ratio. So now it's design time
