Good luck with your new setup. I'm just setting up a solana as well. Oh, and I'm pretty sure the standard Koralia's are not controllable. The new Koralia Evolutions are but not the older models.

Good luck,

Khris

they are to some extent, but they will def. not last. They are really bad about turning on and off... Good luck with the setup!

I guess if you buy them new they do? But like I said this one was stripped and modded a bit..So i`ll be looking for an ATO cause the small top off bottles don`t look like they will cut it..

Yes the bottles are junk.

 

Great start.

 

I have never used the glass top. Most of the Solana owners

are topless also. The glass top causes heat issues.

Which ATO are you running and would you recommend it?

i run mine topless, but i am in the process of building a custom trim kit similar to what Current sells but instead of using the glass i am using clear mesh screens i made.
