Hey Dave. Is there any need to keep in the other two fans? I just pulled the things out.

I would keep them in - otherwise cool air is not going to get into the hood.

There's a vent right over the fan on the light so figured that would be sufficient.

 

The fans that came with the hood are noisy little buggers too. Might order some quieter one.

You don't need them but it does help. The cooler the better! :)

Very true. Did you just run them to the same power for the one on the heatsink?

 

Thanks!

You can tie them in with the heatsink fan.

Anybody else running a retro over a biocube? I'm curious what settings you're running. We've just got through the intial cycle and dropped a few test frags in there from our other tanks to see how they do before adding the corals we've picked up so far.

 

Right now I have the white channel maxing out at 50% and blues at 45%. Not sure if that's too much or too little.

 

We're just going to see how things react, but I'm curious what other people are running.

 

Thanks!

Watch the corals. Try 60% blue, 40% white.

Yeah... we've just dropped a couple of small test frags in there to try dial it in and see how they react. Getting eager to really start adding stuff. :)

Hi All,

Dumb question: Can someone show me where you wire the stock fans into the new Retro unit?

Thanks,

Barry

Hey, Dave. Would it be possible to order the moon option separate for this Retro Kit? I didn't order it originally but now thinking I should have. How much would that be and how much of a pain to install?

 

Thanks!

I can send you what you need. You will need to drill a hole to mount the moonlight. But that is all

Thanks, Dave. I'll drop you an email when I'm ready to tackle it. What's the price and is drilling the heatsink particularly difficult?

Are the screws in the tools section included?

You can wire this with the current fan on the heatsink. The two red wires will connect to the fans red wire ( + ) and the black wires will connect to the fans black wire ( - ).

Never mind, I found them! I am wondering, however, if there is any way to keep the led moonlights that came stock. They seem like a good moonlight that it would be a shame to waste!

Why? The new setup has an option for setting the blue channel intensity for moonlighting (you want to set it really low). You have complete control over it now, and you don't need an additional plug and timer.
