    I think I just downloaded in my pants. Where did you get those and how much did they cost? A detailed build breakdown would be awesome!!

    the first photo is with optics the second is without optics the third is with camera on auto settings but it looks a bit to bright so I chose to use the shutter priority setting I originally had 3x150w metal halides plus 640w of t5s so that was 1090w but counting what the ballasts used closer to 1200w now using 345w in total and it looks way brighter and corals are happy as is my bank balance
