    I also run the Sicce Silent 3.0. I have an Eshopps cube sump under a 35g cube tank. Half of the water from the overflow goes into the fuge and half goes into a filter sock and into the skimmer chamber. Let me clean the film off the acrylic and I'll post a pic up. There's a ton of pictures in my build thread also, but you'll have a hunt thru for a while... It's quite long.

    Hey Salty, let me get this thing hooked up and I'll give you whatever the Seneye says.... however much weight you put behind that.

    @crabs_mcjones here's my fuge now... my chaeto has seen better days. Just tested water today and I have 16ppm nitrates and .68ppm phosphates. It should be growing like crazy but it's been shrinking and I just shook it up and it halfway fell apart. Anyway I'm off to the store to get some cable.

    As someone who doesn't have a lot of friends IRL, I appreciate that :) (Not that I'm weird or anything, just all my time goes into my job, my tank, and my family so I don't hang out with friends all to much)

    AFAICT there is the spectrum shift from "bloom" (red centric) to grow (blue centric, well more like equal centric) confusing things..

    And a few whites thrown into the chip as well.. but not many..same w/ UV(?)
    Majority blue/violet/red's

    Yea, seemed like it.
    I don't see "whites". RGB in there really.
    The YO and R seem a bit blended but it's there.
    The couple other cheapo ones of seen graphs of and the ones in Europe for industrial wharhouse horticulture keep a bit more into yellow , but that could be manufacture.

    Honestly , I can't use em. Makes my OCD explode.
    Interesting though.

    Taken just 10 minutes ago. This is exactly 1 week under the H380




    Day 1 for comparison

    Alright back from the store and I have my H380 hung over the fuge. Holy smokes is this thing bright. @saltyfilmfolks, see if you can make sense out of the Seneye stuff...

    I had to mount it 6 1/2" over the water. Any higher and I get too much spillover into the filter sock and skimmer. The chaeto just sinks so it's a good distance away from the light.

    Right at water surface.

    At the chaeto at the bottom of the fuge.
