    I wound up cancelling my BRS order and ordered from Saltwateraquarium.com. I'm in their 1-day shipping zone and they have them listed as in stock.

    Just spray a little salt water onto your current lens and let it dry to achieve diffusion and save yourself $60.

    Same here, shipping is normally two days to here from BRS but with holidays looks like I'll get mine on Tuesday.

    Got my diffusers this morning, easy to install and took the opportunity to also take off the top cover and give the fan blades a good alcohol wipe down.
    No opinions yet on whether the intensity is slightly decreased nor if the blending of the colors are better but it does make the tank look a little different from what memory serves.

    Just put mine on too. Amazing difference! I took some measurements. I’m gonna put them into a vid and make another thread. I will post the link here.

    Way better light distribution!

    Definitely more bleed since the light is being spread out more. I think we will wind up lowering our lights with the diffuser installed.

    After seeing some prelim info on the XR15, I think I'm interested in the XR30 models just to lessen the shimmer. The increased spread is a nice bonus.
