    Finally pick my butt up to do some modification to expand the slit. Now the flow is a lot more even
    Can't really see from the video, but well... its about there

    Hi Goondoo,
    How is your tank running now? I plan to DIY a ATS like yours too, but now the lighting problem troubles me.
    Would you like to tell me the color tempreture of your lighting?


    mark!

    The problem is that I can get at least 6500K tubes for such lamp holder product.

    Even a cool white or warm white t-5 bulb would work as these are about 4100K. If not use the 6500K and see what happens until you find a lower "K" rated bulb.
