    Who used whom and what do you all recommend? :) I was planning rapid, but I saw that reef "bins the LEDs " to avoid yellowish whites or "flat" royal blues. I don't know if Rapid does this or not. I've also read that the meanwell drivers, after ramping to zero% output, and removing 120vac...

I have heard of people incorporating a few UV lights into the moonlight system and was wondering if anyone has any opinions on whether...

    I'm a newbie and working on my new 125g reef tank. It's a 72" long 18" wide and 22" deep tank. I want to go LED and from everything I read/compared, RapidLED seems like a good option. I'm very handy at working with electrical/mechanical and soldering won't be a problem. I am looking at their...

    I am finally going through with an upgrade. I bought a friends unused 75 gallon tank for $75 and will be using a 40B for a sump. I will DIY the stand for it because 1. I need the stand to be big enough to house the 40B sump 2. I don't feel like paying $600 for a nice stand and canopy that...

    I'm going to be placing my order right RapidLED soon and I want to make sure I've gotten everything squared away. I think I will need more than 24 LED's but I won't need 48 so can I just order the 24 kit and the 12 kit and put them together? I wasn't sure if they would work that way with the...

    My brother-in-law recently setup a 9g nano tank. We built the main light using a 12 LED rapidLED kit and he ordered 4 colored LED's (Red, Cyan, Orange, and Green) with the 350mA moonlight driver they sell to use as an additive to his RB / CW main light. Getting to the point, 350mA is a bit...

    So today a site called mouser.com created a contract with cree to be a mass supplier of products. What does this mean? $1.62 for XP-E and $2.30 for XP-G bulbs if you get a big group buy instead of $5.00 each... Also you could get 60-48D drivers for $32...

    I decided to make my build all in one post so people can find everything about what I am doing, without reading through a ton of comments first. I will throw all of the things I think I forgot in post #4 as the post progresses so that way people can follow up without having to reread a lot of...

    So I started to do a write up as I was doing my DIY LED Build and I figured I would check with everyone and make sure I am not making any grave mistakes (don't worry, I will do a cleaner build write up later). Tell me what you think so far: I purchased: Quantity Item Description...

    So I was looking for people to do a group buy from rapidled.com with me and I collected a bunch of info. Since this is my favorite forum, I figured I would share it here as well...
