  1. I'll disagree with. I have the Ca checker and it's spot on. If you follow the instructions that Hanna provides in , you'll have great results. Tips: Make sure your RO/DI water has 0 TDS Make sure you know how to measure a meniscus properly (see video link above) Make sure you watch the video Hanna Checkers are awesome. Worth the investment, IMO.
  2. Sorry - I misread that Here is my setup:
  3. Woah, 28 LEDs over a BioCube with no dimmers? I'm running 24 over my BC29 with SPS, LPS, and softies ... and have never run it past about 30%. You could fry your coral if you're not careful.

    I couldn't put enough cash together to order the first time -- but I would jump all over this and assume all risk involved $7 rics and $5 flat rate shipping? Boom! Let me know if you do this.
  5. All this fuss over: C'mon now.
  6. For what it's worth, it seems like Hanna Instruments is listening to the complains people are having about their Calcium checker. The posted a video demonstration with some tips for getting accurate results on Amazon.com http://www.amazon.com/Hanna-Instruments-Ha...checker+calcium I actually picked one up today, because I love my Hanna Alk and Phosphate checkers.

    If these were bright polyps and healthy ... I'd be down. Count me in for 10. I can send you a heat pack to include with the Priority Mail shipping to ensure they get to Michigan safely. By the way - does come with any sort of substrate in their "foot" so we can superglue?
  8. All of the above should survive just fine with PCs.
  9. I used to I love Bonsai but I live in Michigan, which proves to be a challenging environment for them.
  10. Thank you, Weetabix I shot these with my budget macro setup on my DSLR. I have a 50mm Prime lens that I simply mounted backward using a reverse mounting ring (you can pick them up on eBay for about $3). It's a Canon T3i ... but the same shots can be had with virtually any DSLR using the method I posted above. Thanks!
