    So about 2 months ago I managed to snag a used L4 Rev3 Turbo ATS on R2R. After a fair bit of hassle and waiting for freight forwarder it arrived in Melbourne. I finally had the chance to set it up - not on my reef tank (which exists only as a project that I am slowly putting together) but rather in my balcony Live Rock tub where I am maturing about 200kg of Fiji rock that I have collected for about the past six months (seeded with about 20kg of quality live rock). The 400 litre tub is in a large box with full climate control and T5 lighting. The parameters are all good , with the exception of Phosphate, which is sitting at a stead 5ppm. The ATS has been running for 5 days and already has good growth starting. It’s going to be a good experiment to see what it can do for the PO4 in the tub before it finds its permanent home in the sump.

    Pretty sure I know who you bought that from now, because I had very few requests for cutting down the MakersLED heat sinks like that!

    Also in case you are wondering, that is a "patched" version of the L4, I had a kit where you could convert the Rev 3 to a Rev 4 by adding those end patches with the threaded holes for holding the slot pipe in place. I believe on that particular one, I added the patches and sold it like that but I'm not sure...the threaded part with the black cap on it is not something I would have made, I had a larger end cap on it.

    No matter what, looks like it works for you!

    Do your light fixtures have individually mounted LEDs or are they PCB boards?
