  1. From a couple posts above: "Settings during video & photos : Royal Blue - 80% Blue Cyan - 80% Violet - 70% White & Mint - 0%" Not sure if those are normal settings or just photo settings though
  2. 3 Foot Long Nano - Video Update

    Looking great! question, got any photos of the lights connected to the ceiling? I'm looking to make the swap from goosenecks to hanging, but a little nervous they will hold on a standard drywall ceiling.

    The macro shots are incredible. Any luck gathering the PAR data for the entire tank?

    Yeah no doubt, but it won't screen print that color. Use the Pantone Coated Color Book in Illustrator, that way you can be sure the color on screen is pretty close to what can be printed.
  5. Any updates to this bad boy? Were able ever to get around to getting PAR numbers?

    Not bad scorched. First option looks much better, although that Blue will be impossible to replicate for printing, but a nice Pantone light blue will look sick. I think you should tweek the kerning of the word "NANO"..all the letter are touching, they should probably resemble the spacing in the word "REEF" Not bad scorched.

    Looking good, following along! Whats your camera setup?
  8. NanoBox T-Shirt Designs

    I work full time as a designer, with a focus on branding and creative strategy. I am also a pretty huge fan of nanobox ever since the inception on this forum, so I'd like to think of myself as someone who would most likely buy swag and wear it on a regular basis, assuming they were designed well. I'll give some thoughts #1 - I would just pass on this completely. In its current state, it just lacks legibility. Legibility is king when it comes to this stuff. Even if it was kerned and leaded by a professional (proper gaps between letters, joining of descenders) it would just be meh. It would look like it was designed by someone who isn't a trained designer, in the year 2010. The font is random, and takes away from the brand. The brand, imo, is clean and minimal in both design and product, this shirt doesn't align with those values. #2 - This one isn't bad. The patch design was in few years ago, and the "x" theme is pretty overused, I would rate this 4/10 as a tshirt. However, it would be a 7/10 hat, where the patch is stitched, with a mesh back half. Similar to patagonia or other outdoorsy style hats. I would get rid of the EST. 2012. I too love Nanobox, but we arn't talking about a country club in the old country. It's an overused design element, by hipsters... It only shows how NEW of a company you are. Despite how proud we all are of your business, studies have shown that the majority of the market see this as a weakness. Look at some of the top performing brands in this industry, they have all been around forever...or at least, that whats the market perceives. I would replace the EST 2012 with the "n" icon (also the length of the X needs work.it extends too far) #3 this is solid from a design perspective (kerning is a bit too tight in the "ano" area)... but this is what goes on the back of a shirt, in the neck area. You are missing a key element here...and its the N icon. The goal here is to make that be recognizable on any scale. Someone needs to see that N icon, and know its nanobox.

    I guess it's possible 20% is too low.... however, I have an Oregon tort that's essentially rich brown with some blue hue and a purple monti as well as a stellata montipora in basically the same positions that appear pale. Here's my current settings Morning: midday: Evening: night: Graph:
  11. NanoBox Duo M settings help for SPS

    This in an interesting thread, havn't been too happy with my quad over my tank. Dont get me wrong, i love the profile of the light, i like the way it looks over my tank, but SPS are just not coloring up as nicely as I have seen.. jedi mind trick looks great, montis looks bad (pale), all acros are brownish. Parameters are all spot on: alk (8.5-9)/ca stable, no3:2-5, po4: .02-.05... tweaking light every couple weeks/months and not seeing too much improvement...this thread has me thinking maybe its the white causing problems? was 80-90% on blue the past couple of weeks, white has been 20-22%ish. Going to bump the white down and see if I notice anything.

    Sorry for the losses, but this tank is looking beautiful! Really like the Nanobox and the photo pairing. What is your lighting schedule/% for now?
  13. Collin's 12long - Nanobox Quad :D

    Yeah I should probably do an update this weekend or something! Not having a dslr on hand makes taking pics less exciting. Honestly, when I first ordered the Hang on Back sump, I was nervous about the price.... but I can tell you its quite possibly the best purchase I have made yet.

    Par values would be sweet!
  15. NanoBox Red Sea 170 : New Start

    Dave, how has the light at these percentages been working? I have the stock quad, but am dealing with browning of SPS. Hard to tell if nutrient based or light based. woukd you reccomend turning the lights up or turning them down?
