    GU10 LED Build Thread (Chinese Ebay Lights)

    http://www.nano-reef.com/topic/267432-gu10-led-build-thread-chinese-ebay-lights/page-34#entry3628709 there is the par reading. It's seems to be from the 4x1w ledhk ones but i wanted to know if someone tested the 3x1w epistar bulbs from luckzdl2008.

    http://www.advancedaquarist.com/2008/2/review Have you guys seen this article? I don't really understand all of it but since some of you seem to know quite a bit regarding aquarium light i thought i'd post it. Also, has someone measured the par of lucky's leds?

    Stocking list for 30g shallow reef

    Thanks for the tips everyone. I'm probably going to get a sixline or pink streak wrasse and a pair of ocellaris. Still wish maroons weren't so aggressive.. but a 30g is probably to small for a pair of them anyway, considering the size they can get.

    Stocking list for 30g shallow reef

    Do you or does anyone else here has experience with maroons? I heard they love stirring the sandbad, moving little rocks and do even draw blood on a regular basis. I would really love to get a pair but first i'd like to know how bad they really are.
  5. I'm upgrading from a 10g to a 30g shallow (24x24x12) and I'm not sure what fish i should get. It's going to be a mixed reef and the only thing i know for sure is that i want a pair of clownfish. Would really like maroon clowns but they seem to be really aggressive so I'm probably just getting 2 ocellaris. Are there any other fish with a great personality that would fit in the tank?

    No, it wont bother the corals if you take the rock out for a few minutes.

    Berghia Nudibranchs

    I breed them. I've got a 50g tank just for breeding aiptasia and the berghias eat so much that i can only keep around 20 of them alive once they reach a certain size. Its probably just to much work for a store to have an extra system to grow aiptasia for the berghia to feed. In my opinion there is nothing better than berghias for aiptasia control. If there is no aiptasia left they will start to crawl around on the glass so you can just pick them up and give them to someone else.

    Seems like luckzdl is finally selling epistar bulbs again.

    The bulbs you linked got the same heatsink like the 4x1w from ledhk. Won't be enough for 3x3w.

    Anyone tried contacting the seller of the epistar bulbs(luckzdl2008)? I asked him if it would be possible to get these with 2 white/1 blue but he doesn't answer.

    15 liters

    I would get 4 of the mixed ones. Should be enough for softies.

    digitate hydroids. Got some too but they don't seem to bother anything.

    Does anyone know if the epistar 3w cool white bulbs are better then the "normal" ones? http://www.ebay.com/itm/1pc-E27-3Watt-Cool...W-/280816907394

    Are they much better than the blue bulbs from LEDHK?
