I'm wondering what I should include in my video which will feature the new LED fixture I bought on 6-24-2014. If you have any ideas that you'd like me to consider, let me know below.
this fixture with "full spectrum" lighting is usually used for coral, but it will be good enough for planted tanks. Also I prefer less green color in my tank so this is good for me. Given that i can vary intensities of blue channel to the mixed color LEDs I can tailor the color.
This fixture does not include additional optics due to my desire to want 120 - 130 degree spread of light. This one fixture will light my 50 gallon tank. Dimensions of rectangular aquascaping portion of the tank is 35.5" x 10.125" x 19 " (L x W x H) Due to substrate height 19" will be 17" giving my tank 26.45 gal to scape; however, there are two triangular prism volumes which equates to 2.14 gal for a grand total of scapeing volume of 28.59 gal. SeaClear System II is labeled as 50 gallons. Outer dimensions actually give 46 gal. Inner dimensions give 42 gal. Labeling is absurd in marketing. I recommend to stick to standard glass tanks.
If i can borrow or rent a par meter Ill also do par measurements outside and inside a tank.
PS here are some terminology meanings ( ask me more for if you need them)
