I am excellent, apparently
They will only fit if you're using the "EU" or wider (24") brackets, unless you buy the fixture through GHL's EU store. Another mount solution is in the works for the default 18" width.

As to worth or not, I can't comment.

Thanks. I was wondering why the Mitras LED brackets were not listed as an option on any of the online stores.

I've had the 2 Mitras LX7206s on my Reefer 250 for over 2 years with great results. I've red a lot of people that have had improved coloration a T5/LED combination, so it was something I considered.

Are you getting a lot of shadowing? Is that why you wanted to supplement? Or is is just something you wanted to try?

GHL sells the fixtures and the mitra brackets are listed...

Thanks for the link. As Kyl mentioned, I believe that is the EU store, and the lights would have a European power interface.

I don't have any specific shadowing issues, except under some of my larger colonies, which I don't expect the T5s to help with. I was just considering adding T5s to see if they would have a positive impact. I'm currently using the RMS mounts and I get good coverage:

Is there no option for a ghl mount. How long have you had these lights for. I hear they dont last long although it was from only from one person. They look real nice. Are you a ghl person with controllers and stuff.

I like them a lot just miss from my lx6 vs my lx7 is having 3 vs 2 but there no dark area’s
Nice setup. So you upgraded from the LX6 to LX7? Why did you go from 3 to 2? Couldn't you put one of the Lx6s in between the 2 LX7s? Where did you purchase the Aquatic Life fixture with the necessary Mitras brackets?
