I am thinking about adding Ecoxotic stunner strips to my reef tank as supplemental lighting for my metal halides. Something to come on before and run during and for a while after the halides. Right now I have two 250w halides on 16" pendants running Phoenix 14k bulbs lighting my 125 gallon tank.

What I am looking for is something that will allow me to extend my photoperiod and allow me to reduce the time my halides are on. Would the blue and white mixed strips come close enough to the color of the Phoenix bulbs?

Also, I see that a dimmer switch is available. Is their a way to ramp these up and down automatically? I have a ReefKeeper controller and wonder if the advanced lighting control will work with these or ramp them up and down? Anyone have any experience with this or have solutions?

Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

I don't have an Apex. I wonder if it would work with the ReefKeeper?
