    Hi Santa, do you mean of the whole light unit or the bulb? Eitherway I will have a look for numbers now!

    This is from the back of the light unit:



    I think if you Google Brackenheath Floodlight you will find them, as all the ones I have seen are a 36w spiral CFL.....

    Ok, so I have had the algae screens going good for a few weeks now and I cant seem to grow any green hair algae. All I get is the brown diatom sludge... and a bit of green cyanobacteria, I have yet to see a single green hair.

    I have no measurable nitrates, nitrites or ammonia.

    Any thoughts what I should do?

    More light, less hours.

    And good range of how much more light and less time? 100%, 50%, or 25% more? What about time, I run about 16/8 hour schedule? Anyone have any good starter suggestion that has worked so we can make a more informed change to our routines? I run 2 23W cfl bulbs one on each side of a 9x6 screen. Thanks!!

    These lights are awesome and perfect fit for what I would like to build. But there only available from UK?
    Anyone know of a similar set up cheaply available in the states? I have searched for about 45 min and not found squat.
