    This creative combination by German aquarist Frank D is one of the most impressive and well finished DIY projects that I have come across. Frank had a 6 bulb dimmable ATI Powermodule and an older Profilux 1 controller. Rather then have the controller go to waste, he modified the Powermodule and installed the controller within the aluminum light’s body and placed the controller interface on the side. 

    With this combination sunrise and sunset simulations will be a breeze. Not happy with just this addition, Frank went on to incorporate some high powered blue LEDs for moon lights. The finished product reminds me greatly of Riff System’s Xtreme Light, only all T5 with the Powermodule’s proven performance.
