Hey All! Howzit! Me again!

I have just gotten new toys for my tank - Sean Koekemoer will most likely recognize this:

Tonight I am going to add 2 of these as moonlights to my tank, to run 24x7....

Will post some pics of it tomorrow (or the day after) :)

Hi Wee-Man - you've been quiet for a while! ;)

No - most likely not - BUT then again - it;s some additional lights that makes my tank "look nice" ;-) :lol:

Jacques, i don't like to interupt you:lol:

Run them after the main lights go out, that way you will appreciate them more:thumbup:

I will try both - 24x7 and see how this looks, and only after lights-out...

Will see which is the best bet..... I just wonder what activities I will be seeing now after the main lights goes out!

What's with the connecting part, some sort of stand ?

Usage idea ?

Hi Calvin - I got it from a LFS - BUT Andrew actually originally sells them. Sean K have these on his tank (or had them - not sure if he put them back on his new tank, though).... They look UBER COOL at night! (according to Sean's pics).....

Hi Warr - it has a edge connector with a tightening screw.... it sits on the edge of the aquarium glass, and you can position the goose-neck as and how you want....

The idea is to have a VERY weak moonlight effect shining on your tank at night-time.

Cool! So I hope that it will look awesome on mine too! I am contemplating using it either 24x7 or perhaps evenings only!

You get this light in 3 combinations, I think - white only; blue only; or white-blue mixed!

I got the blue only....

Hi Warr - I have thought of UV lights - BUT seeing the one actually want to have your Metal Halides UV protected, I thought that UV would be bad for one's corals.

Perhaps someone with more knowledge on this topic could BUTT in?
