I just flooded my tank the other day and have quickly found out my current lighting will not cut it unless it is basically sitting on the rim and i hate that! I have a full carpet of hc and pressurized co2 so i would like to be in the med to high light region. I have gone all out on this tank and really want it to be a show stopper, no corner cut tank.
So this brings me to wanting leds on this tank. I recently bought a reef keeper lite which will do dimming and i just have to try this. The unfortunate thing is between work and a upcoming baby i do not have even close to the time to go the diy route. Plus i really dont think i have the knowledge or patience to do it
I have found a site called buildmyled.com that i think has some pretty awesome options. I think i have narrowed it down to their planted tank offering. My question is should i go for a 24" or 36" model. Also what degree of optics i could use.

My wife is actually on board with this but i am unsure how long that will last so I am really hoping to get t his ordered in the next day or two. As always thanks for any input any of you may have. Your help has been priceless
