Looks great Kevin. You have great step by step photos along the way. I might be taking a peek at them if need be as I go.
The Mbuna tank looks great too.

I have the 50/50 Smartlight set up on one of my tanks and at first the blue stood out, but now I really like the way it enhances the color of the fish and plants.

Yes I got the combo bulb, half 10,000k and half actinic. Its a little blue but I like it. Brings out the fish colors better and the plants seem to look greener. I was very impressed with ahsupply's kit. One day soon (since i got the new job) I will be getting pressurized co2 first, then 4x55 watt kits from ahsupply for my 75. I think i'll go with the 6700k for that tank though.

Well, my 55 watt kit arrived yesterday. I'll let you know how it goes when I get around to it.

Then I'll decide just how soon I want to order the rest of them....

I believe the 10000K bulb is what they are reffering to full spectrum.

Well, 2 1/2 months later and it's still sitting in the box....
I forgot about this post, but it was a good reminder how long the thing has been sitting there...
I did have one attempt with a single strip retrofit and realized it was from one of the full hoods and it was too short for the light. We were trying to figure out how the heck anyone could fit a kit into such a small space, then I measured the strip after all that wasted time and realized it wasn't 24" long like it was supposed to be....
