    Just FYI.... three of these showed up at my door this weekend. :)
    Now I just need to get my hands on our club's par meter before opening up my Radions and doing the install.

    It will be very interesting to see how much you need to raise the levels.
    Thinking of buying a G4 pro for my low cube, wouldn't get it without one of these.

    I got them on my g4s it will be interesting to see what readings you get once you get the par meter. I turned intensity up just 5% but have no idea what par I’m getting. The overall look the diffusers give is really pleasant. It really does give that t-5 blanket spread.

    Thanks, kev!

    Thank you :)

    Thanks, holly! With help from some of your coral. :)

    Awesome. :)
    I held one under one of the radions and it almost seemed to make it appear brighter.

    I also just rebooted! Removed all the rock and most of the sand and replaced with Fiji rock and a little more coarse sand.

    Just a pic of some of my babies before they left the nest today, headed to their new home.
    About quarter size.

    The mommas are easily double in size.
