    I have been running the corallife retrofit kit from rapid led,
    12 CW and 12 RB. I am upgrading them to the dimmable drivers and adding another driver to run
    the color leds.

    so after I will have
    12 RB
    12 CW
    4 UV
    1 green
    1 Red

    The uv green and red will be on its own driver.
    Im thinking on taking out 4 CWs (to make room) for the colors or drill the heatsink and keep all.
    still trying to come up with a layout plan on the colors, right now I have then configured:
    1 row CW
    2nd row RB
    3rd row Cw
    4th row RB
    Does anyone have any thoughts or suggestions?

    Would also like to give a shout out to Rapid Led There staff and customer service is Awesome!

    I would drill more places for the new LEDs and keep them all I would do a 5th row with the colors in the middle, two UVs on the outside.

    yeah that's what I am thinking, hopefully the fans in there can handle the extra heat.
