Has anybody tried this upgrade to thier Sols? I'm not even sure where to get the upgrade kits. Just a thought and have'nt started looking yet. I'm running 4 Sol Blues and 2 Ecoexotic Panaroma Pros on my tank and would like to do the upgrade to 2 of my Sols. My only concern is that my tank is 30" deep and read some where that the Vega's are not good for deep tanks. Also this so called "disco effect" people talk about. I grow SPS on my sandbed with no problems and if it cant be done with the Vega upgrade than no point. I'm really leaniing towards trying this due to every LED owners complaint of not quite the right colors. I'd like to hear some of your thoughts please. Try to convince me not to put out the cash for this.

I haven't heard anything but I don't think I would spend more money on AI products. I think you did the right thing supplementing with P. pros?

Got mine about a month ago. You can get then directly from AI

Easy upgrade unless you have my luck

Wasn't a big fan of the 2 sols and 2 Vegas. So with the 2 Sols conversion it's basically 4 Vegas.
Only difference is you maintain the same heat sync so is bigger

Ok thanks. That answered my question.
I have a hard time putting out $800 to upgrade my 4 fixtures so I think I might just grab 2 more of the Panarama Pros and the new controllor for them. My wife is in Phoenix where I got the first set of them so will get her to grab a couple more sets. All those LEDs on a 144G tank might be overkill but oh well.
