I just got my lighting in the mail. I ordered 10 x 10k and a bunch of random other LEDs. All 3 watt. I'm thinking of building the hood with 15 x 3w LEDs and making it dimable. I still have actinic LEDs on the way and other stuff for the build (fan, switches, power supple, plugs etc).

Pickling lime is working to bring the PH up a bit. Almost where I want it. Bought a 50/50 bulb fo the cheap hood to hold me over until I can get the LEDs ready
Configured auto dosing
