    Nano Box and SPS dominated tanks

    Thank you Dave and as always very nice Kat. Still brain storming so I have time because it looks like your plate is pretty full.

    Nano Box and SPS dominated tanks

    I am interested in seeing SPS dominated tanks lit by Nano Box lighting. I see many tanks that are softie, zoas and LPS, dominated but only a few with SPS only or SPS dominated. (I do see a current thread and that one is perfect timing). I am considering a NB and need the final push please for an upcoming build. Thanks.

    Purple Up?

    Purple Up?

    Except that you are forgetting that the pH has to be low enough for the aragonite to dissolve in order to be available and if the pH is low enough your tank is pretty much gone.

    would you piss in your tank?

    Yeah, yeah, sure, sure.

    2013 pico age survey

    June 2010 I have done full WC with H2O2 treatments of 30 minutes several times. As Andrew pointed out the tank produces detritus like crazy.

    Full spectrum LED layouts

    Hey thanks for breaking that down and explaining the DIM4. I saw there was a video but I haven't had time to watch it. I did not realize it was a driver and a controller together so that is a nice feature and makes the choice even more difficult now I think the way you do the first table worked well. If you have this size tank you buy these leds. If you buy these leds you need to buy these parts ..... It is great reading 100 pages of info. but as you said, it stinks when you do the research but still end up with a product that is just ok at best. Two more question and then I will go back to reading: You said two 3 ups on one channel but in your table on page one for a 5.5 you have 4 rb, 2 nw, 2 or 3 tv, and 1 ocw. The two 3s are under the royal blue xt-e with 2 rb and 1 nw right? Also where would the third tv go in the drawing? In the middle next to the ocw or somewhere else? Again thanks and sorry I am asking elementary questions.

    Full spectrum LED layouts

    1. Thank you and everyone else for taking the time to put this together it really has helped. 2. I was going to ask if you could provide a list of everything needed to go with the layouts but I see that is something you plan on doing soon. You don't think you could do that by say Black Monday? Wink wink nudge nudge. 3. I have been using a par 38 7 led bulb on my 5.5 for over a year now and like many feel that the color may be lacking. Wouldn't it just be better for me to buy a full spectrum led light and use a wide lens vs. a DIY? Again thanks for the information.

    Well your name really does fit you then huh? It falls in line of other great names like Rocky who has to box and Candy who has to strip.

    Ultimate LED guide

    Ok thanks. I was worried that sleep deprivation was setting in. So if I wanted to do an DIY LED for a standard 10 gallon how many LEDs would I need? Something like 16? 8 blue and 8 white in a 4 x 4 grid or something else? I would need 4 drivers right? 4 LED per. I am trying to run some numbers and see if I want to even attempt this project. I have access to all tools needed and an electrican who could help with the build. I also have a 2.5 standard that I am thinking about. What would I need for that build? Thanks.

    Ultimate LED guide

    Evil, I meant is there a section on building an LED. You covered the first two sections in the first post but I did not see the build section. I was trying to figure out how much equipment etc. I would need if I attempted this project. Thanks for all of your hard work.

    Ultimate LED guide

    Hey Evil or anyone who has read this entire thread: Which pages highlight the background information other than page 1? I have looked through parts of this thread but I am just beginning to learn about LEDs. I am thinking of a 10 gal LED SPS build. Thanks for the thread.

    Coolwaters, You can use hydralic water stop and sand or CC to cement all of your rocks together if you don't want to use foam.
