    Wow. What a difference. 8)

    More pics please. Closer if possible. ;)


    Does the timer have some cool options?

    @Estee - do new batteries fix the problem you had?

    Ill get some more pics on monday :)
    It is nice because there is one plug for the whole entire fixture! then from the timer you can control the halides, t5, and LED's... you can choose exactly what time you want each to come on and off.

    The fixture has 4 LED's 1W each... they have about 40 degree lens on them and they are super bright- nice royal blue too! you get great color off of them but they have a slight spotlight effect.

    The one plug and built-in timer really impressed me about this light. Plus the T5/Halide combo is so nice. I had that on my 20 long. I wish I had it now.

    Look forward to more pics!
