    Hi guys. Do any of you have the Razor Leds perhaps? R420r M16000 (160 watts). Was wondering how exactly to programme the white and blue. 100% white and 50% blue? Not sure which gives the best results. (Tank: 1.200 x 60 x 60)

    Do you currently have one? have you tried the manual?:p

    You can manually program 6 time points which it 'ramps' the A and B channels to.
    Remember to set the first and last time points to 0%!

    I have 2 of them. You get the manual one where you can set the intensity for each channel and it will stay the same permanently. Then you get preset settings that is programmed into the light unit and like the other said you can set your own timeline for each channel. I do set my 1st and last setting to 1% blue

    Thanx guys. Yes I have one and have done all the settings. Was just wondering if you have tried various percentages between the blue and white and what in your opinion looks the best, say in the middle of the day? What are your blue and white percentages set on for midday? By 11 o clock I have my white on 100%. Is this too much?

    Wish I could afford another one. Only have one on my 4 ft tank. Doesn't quite cover the sides of the tank.

    Didnt even know there are upgrades. Whow thanx. This may really help. Sorry if this question sounds stupid but how do you go about getting the upgrades and what exactly does it do? And do you you install it yourself?

    @bryan from @jungleAquatics will sort you out. You buy 2 of them for the side clusters. The wider angle lenses spread the light more outward than straight down. Its very easy to install yourself. Takes 10mins and your back in action.

    I have 2 160watt ones hanging 12cm above water for a 1.5m no probs. Depends on your depth of tank and your coverage but around 15-20cm should be good
