    Supplemental lighting and/or lunar lighting

    So, I have recently started building my 90g back up, it is light with a pair of ocean revive LEDs, which I had success with. Now I would like to supplement my lights with more violet spectrum (400-450nm). As well as place some lunar lights in the hood for some night viewing. My question is what do y'all use or what would you like to use? I am pretty handy but it appears that "build my LED" no longer exist, so I am looking for ideas. Jim

    Could buy an inexpensive led fixture from l;if guard that has most of those features and supplement it will higher power lights for main lighting. I prefer mostly strong blue light personally. Rapid LED is also still in business. diy led stuff.
    Four individual systems Right now.
    30gal red sea 130d lps/softies/anemone tank, kalk ato, reef bright led strip.
    40 softies set up.
    550 total gallon marineland 300 DD main system 18 months old now and stabilized. T5 VHO lights/ BLUE led strip, Fully custom built LIFE REEF sump and FUGE, AWESOME 60" tall skimmer, and 1000+ gallon rated custom Ca reactor, 3 50 gallon attached SPS frag systems lite with a combination of HM and LED and T5 fixtures.
    A 200 gallon MARS quarintine with UV system/ medication for new arrivals.

    Still lots to learn about the hobby but I have amassed a great collection of real beauties. I have broken past the stage of keeping things alive and now there actually growing out. Which is a big hurdle for many beginners I must admit. Good information and advise is hard to get sometimes and the club has done wonders with respect to quality advise and help in the hobby.

    THANKS Orlando Reef Educators Organization!!!!

    if your handy and have built your own before. or willing to learn and such. If you liked build my led. Check out "Led supply" and rapid as jim suggested. they both have some which caters to reefers

    I use different set ups on different tanks DIY builds on the 300 gal. second hand AI and then the Chinese cheapos on different other tanks. Would like to run some metal halides, but my power bill wouldn't like that. Not to mention the Spousal factor.

    I keep water, last checked about 600 gallons worth.
    Problem is animals keep using it as there water closet.
    Worst of all the littlest ones keep using up all the supplies.
