 Greetings  of  the  day  
 
 soo  here  is  my  scene  at  the  moment...  
 
 link  to  my  tank  
 
 http://indianaquariumhobbyist.com/community/modules.php?name=Forums&file=viewtopic&p=321882#321882
 
 basically  i  have  2  kessils  Tuna  blue  running  up  in  my  tank...  its  pretty  cool  and  have  no  problems  with  it  but  i  feel  that  just  2  kessils  is  way  too  low  for  my  6  feet  tank  
 
 soo  here  comes  the  problem  either  to  upgrade  to  kessils  like  buy  2-3  more  of  them  or  go  for  DIY  Cree  LED  setup  
 
 pros  of  kessils  
 awesome  simmer,  great  penetration,  and  sexy  looks  
 
 cons  of  kessils  
 too  blue  for  my  taste  and  are  not  controlled  via  controller,  no  sunrise  sun  set  effect...  are  the  only  con  that  i  can  see  as  of  now  
 
 Pros  of  DIY  CREE
 can  go  for  full  spectrum  lights,  more  control  over  the  unit....  
 
 Cons  of  DIY  CREE  
 its  a  DIY  and  m  dumb  at  DIY  
 
 soo  please  guide  me  what  to  buy  and  how  to  go  about....  
 
 if  i  opt  for  DIY  CREE  setup  here  is  what  i  have  planned  soo  far...  
 please  have  a  look  and  reply  me  experts  
 
 total  unit  3  nos  with  2  kessils  tune  blue  on  a  6  feet  tank  with  27  wide  and  24  deep  
 each  unit  will  be  placed  alternately  (  DIY  -  Kessil  -  DIY  -  Kessil  -  DIY  )
 i  am  not  really  a  great  fan  of  the  blue  tone  and  Kessils  have  good  blue  color  so  have  totally  eliminated  blues  from  this  stuff....  
 
 plans  for  LED  
 
 White:  9  Nos  Cree  XT-E  Cool  White  (total  27  nos)  (should  we  go  for  XT-E  or  XP-G  is  fine  ?  )  
 UV  Violets:  9  Nos  from  Rapid  Led  (total  27  nos)
 Red:  1  Nos  Cree  XP-E  (total  3  nos)
 Green:  1  Nos  XP-E  (total  3  nos)
 Royal  Blue:  2  Cree  XP-E  (if  necessary  for  moonlight)  (total  6  nos)
 Amber:  1  Cree  XP-E  (total  3  nos)
 Lens:  80  degree  lens  
 
 1)  is  it  this  light  good  ?  or  an  over  kill  for  the  tank  ?  are  warm  white  necessary  ?  
 2)  again  i  am  bad  at  the  computer  soo  if  you  can  guide  regarding  the  placement  of  the  LEDs  that  ll  be  great  i  was  thinking  red,  green,  amber,  and  royal  blue(  if  you  suggest)  will  be  in  midle  and  rest  will  be  alternate
 3)  what  should  be  the  size  of  the  unit  ?  i  like  more  compact  look  
 4)  what  should  be  the  ideal  distance  between  each  LEDs  ??  
 5)  are  combined  lens  available  for  crees  ?  if  yes  where  so  can  try  to  replicate  ecotech  radiations  
 6)  it  will  be  manually  and  PWM  dimming  as  experimenting  for  first  time  and  in  case  of  aurindo  failure  shouldn't  be  a  problem  
 7)  friend  of  mine  is  making  aurindo  any  special  points  i  need  to  tell  him  to  take  care  of  ?  
 Cool  what  driver  you  suggest  to  use  ?  
 9)  i  would  like  to  control  each  color  individually  is  it  possible  ?  and  how  if  yes  ?  if  no  what  to  do  ?  
 10)  any  extra  points  that  came  to  your  mind  while  reading  please  tell  me....
