20160218 Update - After seeing how many power supply issues people where having I decided to go ahead and try that replacement power supply. After spending 35$ later i received a power supply that is different I should say. The power supply has zero markings, but the size of it, bigger than the original one. This one has been able to handle the light without any issues after a 2 week test period before i swapped back to the original one. The one thing i find myself scratching my head on...did they purposely sell a weaker power supply with this product to save money or cut cost? I'm going with the latter on this one, but the replacement i bought from aqua vibrant seems to be able to hold it’s on with no lifesaving needed. I'll ride out the original one till it dies than swap back to the aqua vibrant one. And for those wondering are the actual internals of the aqua vibrant one bigger? The answer to that is yes, I can confirm it far surpasses the smaller one in terms of size and power.
* The original unit puts off some nice heat. I try to keep it elevated to keep it cool as possible or as in the picture I run mine not even in its case. Warning water and electrical do not mix, the cord is short so it's always a good distance close to the tank, I always unplug and remove the unit near tank before doing the dirty work. Or maybe i should remove that warning and let Darwin’s theory take over. The aqua vibrant one manages it heat load better when hooked up to the 36 in light, so I keep it inside of its case. So far the light still shines bright zero LED's burnt out, just the power supply issue....
20160530 - I like the way the light performs I decided to by a second one. However this time I made sure in inspect the power supply before applying power. My guess was right; they really need a better quality check in the manufacturing process of this light. I urge all buyers of this product to clean the back of the power supply with alcohol before use. It's easy to open just four screws and it comes out. If you fail to use the alcohol, you shorten the lifespan of your equipment. All the brown you see in the picture is called 'Flux". You are supposed to clean it off after manufacturing process...failure to do so gives birth to corrosion, high resistance and eventually failure of your part (basically causing more stress as soon as you start using it). I cannot recommend the lights to anyone until this gets fixed or else everyone is going to keep shelling out for power supplies long before the lights die out.
20161211 Update - My dimmer setup is still going strong with no issues with burnt out lights or flickering lights. The aquavibrant power supplies have the same hook ups as the original power supply. I've attached pictures of my current setup. I bought a project box and drilled holes into the plastic for ventilation purposes. I ended up email Finnex to get a connecter set-up (the same one used to hook the power supply and light together) I don't remember how much it costed in the end, but it was fairly cheap. If you don't want to have those hook ups you can always splice together the wiring to get it to work. Basic wiring is from wall outlet into power supply, going out of the power supply into the dimmer box, and then out of the dimmer box to the light. Here is the link to the dimmer I'm currently using, it gives me a nice range for dimming. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0082J5H36/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o09_s01?ie=UTF8&psc=1
Prior to buying this i had been running a twin 24" T5 which gave great results but with 48W of light on such a small tank you would expect it to.
I have been researching LED lights for planted tanks for some time and the Finnex fixtures seemed to be a decent unit at a pretty reasonable price. A big motivation in making the switch to LED was the desire to reduce power consumption as electricity in Australia is stupidly expensive.
Immediate observations upon making the switch: Obviously the Finnex wasn't as bright as the T5's but still gave ample illumination through 90% of the tank. The light made the plants appear slightly washed out color wise compared to the fluros but not overly so and once your eyes adjust to the difference it's fine.
The plants continue to pearl enthusiastically and there has been a decent growth spurt in almost all of the them, particularly the stauro. This was noticeable within a week and now at 6 weeks continues.
The blue moonlights are "cute" but really just a gimmick that have no real value in either plant growth or illumination. As such, apart from trying them out when i first installed the fixture i have not used them since.
The fixture itself is very slim and attractive and improves the look of the tank greatly. It gives the impression of being well made and the adjustable legs extend JUST far enough to mount onto the rim of my tank. It also runs much cooler than T5's, getting warm but not uncomfortable to touch.
Overall i am very pleased with this light. I am getting growth rates AT LEAST as good as what i was with much higher output lighting and the aesthetics of the tank are greatly improved.
The only down side is they are not available locally here in Aus and there seems to be noone that can ship 48" fixtures to me.
I waited to see how this fixture performed before buying more and 3 weeks ago received a 36" unit that i will review shortly although so far i have not been as happy with the results. Time will tell on this one.
UPDATE: I had somehow not got around to updating this review until now but had wanted to give a progress report. Now a year later i can say that nothing has happened to change my opinion of this light and i have now become quite a fan of the Finnex brand. As the picture shows this fixture will easily enable you to have lush plant growth in tanks that are not too deep. The UG pearls like crazy and even the pogo is coming along. I can highly recommend these fixtures.
****SECOND UPDATE**** My what a difference a month makes which is how long has passed since the update above.
Today when my lights came on one of the units has failed and just flashes. Hopefully this is just the power supply that the Planted Plus fixtures come with (Ray 2's do not have this) so i will source a replacement and see if this will rectify the issue (here's hoping). I have 9 Finnex LED's, three of which are Planted Plus. This one is the only one that has failed so far lasting 13 months. Hopefully it's not a sign of things to come as otherwise i still think these lights are great and for planted tanks easily outperform fixtures costing 3 times as much.
