Recommended Posts

malibukay

i know i didnt post pics last night, been running a little busy, but i will soon

 

so quick update:

got the rest of my LEDs today, i thermal epoxied them to the heatsink, which wasnt an issue. the real problem came to when i had to solder -_- after trying multiple times with no luck, i gave up. im just going to have to wait till i can ask my father to do it for me lol

 

kinda wish i went with a PAR bulb <_<

I did it for the same reason and I saw none in my chaeto either...I might try to find some chaeto locally so I can get some pod action going...

 

My sargassum is still alive though...did you remember to order a penny macro?

yes i did, i got a nice bunch of ulva as my penny macro =)

 

i just wish my chaeto had the pods in it, i dont even care that it disintegrated into nothing, but i bought it specifically just for the pods =(

 

my light fixture should be done by this weekend, i cant wait till i get it in the mail! will deff have lots of pics coming!

I know what you mean...a buncha guys here complain about how pods are everywhere in their tanks and looking for ways to control them and I got basically zero. :mellow:

 

Look forward to seeing the lights! B)
