Even dimmed down, so my suggestion would be to have the ability to raise and lower it as well as dimming. But who am I talking to you already knew that. Have fun with the new build.
    If you were asking me, I have 6x10 watts right now on a 19x19 tank. And Im still building another 6 for a total of 120 watts on a 30 gallon cube. No dimmers and no optics. Lets see how it ends.... will start a thread soon. Sorry for hijacking.

    the led light i had built prior had adjustable wires for hight over water as well as dim-able driver. i will probably do the same setup for optimal flexibility. need to do a cost benefit analysis as to how much its going to cost for the led setup vs keeping the MH led mix
