    Some more goodies from @Bulk Reef Supply came in yesterday.

    20170819_015531.jpg

    2x Reefbrite supra slimline t5 fixtures
    2x ATI blue+ bulbs
    And some more BRS swag. The camelbak water bottle :)

    I'm adding a couple t5s to the 180.

    Here are a couple shots of one of the fixtures out of the box

    And here is the backside

    The fixture is well made and lightweight. It's made of a nice stainless steel construction that looks sleek (although I'd prefer black haha)

    I'll be making a run to Lowe's to figure out how to mount these things, but I do have a idea floating around in my head lol.

    Those are the LED replacement bulbs for the fluorescence correct? They look really nice I wonder if they put off the same PUR as well as PAR? I can't wait to see how they work out in your system. So where did you get those fixtures if you don't mind me asking?

    I'll be running all 3 types of lighting over the 180 now, the bulbs are ATI blue+(my favorite bulb they have).

    I got them from bulk reef supply.

    I'll take measurements later today for you but they are much wider than the xho led strips

    Sorry, I mean as in the leds that look like t5 bulbs and are a replacement for the florescent bulbs. Not the fixtures.

    Jackie,
    I tried 2 of those E5 Blue Pops in my t5 lineup once.
    Freaked my BTA's out.
    Finally took one of them apart. All they were, was those Home Depot mini led strips (that you can buy in long rolls) wrapped into a plastic shell.

    Oooh, I see. Sorry I front think I'd ever run those over any tank. They didn't seem like they performed well. Reefbrite has released a cheaper led strip from their tech line that look promising.

    That's what I was thinking or you'd be hearing more talk about them. Reefbrites are something I'm considering when my AI's kick it so I'm interested in how well that line does :)

    That's what I was thinking when I first heard of them. I couldn't see how they could be as good as or better than a florescent t5. These are 2 totally different types of lighting. To even attempt to mimic the same spread alone of a t5 the casing tube should look like hundreds of tiny lenses to keep each led bulb from having a 'beam' to it. JMO

    So I got the t5 fixtures mounted and hooked up, but I must say I am very disappointed in them to this point. Every time they turn on they trip my gfci! It doesn't matter if I only turn one on or both on at the same time, it always trips. At first I thought it was the extension cord I was using because after I swapped it out they both came on without tripping. But then when they were programmed to come on this evening they popped again.

    I am definitely frustrated but I'm sure @Bulk Reef Supply will take care of me. I sent them an email just now concerning this. So I guess for now these things are coming down :(

    Does anyone have any ideas on what could be the issue?
