Looking for someone who has a successful reef tank to share their light schedule for the ghl Mitras

Have them and have not having great luck keeping corals growing and coloured up in comparison to my old t5s

When I had mine over my 180 I felt the same way but since I started my new tank im happy so far. Before I was using my own project with not much success but the new project I'm trying out seems like corals are growing and happy. I'm using Aarons project from profilux owners.

You can find his build thread on a few forums.

I added T5's to my Mitras and never looked back. Been really happy with the retrofit assembly. When I get home I could email you my program for the Mitras part. PM me your email address.

How did you retro fit t5s? Do you have a picture? I'm intrigued.

Thanks for sharing, lol if I ever wanted to try that I'd have to build a floating canopy.

Aluminum and pop riveter made short work of it. It would be easy to clean it up and hide all of the wiring if people actually see it. But mine's hidden so no need to do all that.
