I had the R2 and I wasn't a fan, the Rapid moonlight is amazing.
I knew I should have ordered it......maybe if I ever get this hooked up, I will add that too.
They are VERY bright, so make sure only to do two on a BioCube "Nano". I have mine run from 8pm to 12:30am.
I've been looking around for quick connectors with no luck. Where did you get yours? I want to be able to take my hood completely off without cutting wires and re soldering it back together.
They came as LED extensions from Rapid LED, you can order them off their site for .50 each.
I have those....only used 2 of them. It looked like you used quick connect rather than wire nuts to attach the drivers to the black and red leads.....that is where I want to be able to take it apart in the future.....I like how I can disconnect the hood entirely from the tank. If I solder, I can wrap wires to make it look nice, but can't completely separate
I used those extensions and bought Molex connectors at Radio Shack.
Hope this helps.
That is great. Thanks.
I decided to stagger each LED now and added two more LEDs, here is what I have now..
(Light Array) B = Blue / W = White / M = Moon
W B W B W B
B W B B W B
M B W M

Two week update:
Well the lights have been running for two weeks now, everyone is doing great! My coals have even better and the fish seem a lot happier. Overall I am very pleased with my purchase.
