Hey man what's going on.
Tank is coming along slowly but surely.
I had some up's and down's with getting everything stable but at this point I have learned that this is a marathon and not a sprint
I burnt some sps with the LED's when starting out and now I'm only running them at 30% the real star of this light IMOP is the T5's and if I had to do it over again I think I would go with the less expensive sun power and add Reef Brites lol, although the diming of the T5's is a really nice feature.
I did add a reef brite strip and thinking about adding another on the other side (peninsula tank) but everything pops at nite under the reef brite.
I'll try and take some update pic's soon nothing special but my zoos did take off under the T5's

Hey Mike
I'm sorry to hear about your not really good experience with your ATI fixture.
As you probably remember I had exact same fixture... I like to try new stuff and everyone know that I switch light fixtures very often... I wanted to give a chance for Radions pro 3rd gen but unfortunately they not working for me so I decided to switch to another fixture.
This time I'm getting new pacific sun product the Pandora Hyperion S8, it's almost exact the same fixture as ATI led Powermodule except few details that may work way better... PacSun has more led colors I think 8 but no white, running 8 t5s do we need white led? I don't think so, they have longest experience with led fixtures for aquarium cause they was first (I believe) company who did it for our hobby years ago so they have some experience, pac sun put all that leds on very small spot (less than 1 square inch) this way they eliminate funky color spots on the live rock or corals cause colors are mixing better in my understanding. I remember that I was able to see red color on live rock running ATI so I hope pac sun gonna work better.
I didn't know that dimming t5s we shorting them life drastically! I only knew that we have to run them on the beginning at full 100% for first 80 hours. That's why dimming option is not allowed in pandora lights :-/
I learn new things all the time...
Please post some pics
