  1. Got busy with work, need to get rid of this $550 shipped!
  2. I have a nanobox quad I purchase from Dave back last summer brand new, it's white/grayish w/ black cap with 15" gooseneck. It has about 7 months of usage on it, ramping up to 55% on blue channel and 35% on whites. I have owned 5-6 units now of nanobox led cuz they are beast!! Great service from Dave and quality products! The only reason I'm selling this is because I got a bigger unit from Dave. Asking $600obo shipped for the unit. The unit has 5 channels as shown below Ch 1 - Blues/Violet/Cyan on the 2 left pucks Ch 2 - Blues/Violet/Cyan on the 2 right pucsk Ch 3 - Whites/Lime on the 2 right pucks Ch 4 - Whites/Lime on the 2 left pucks Ch 5 - Fans The only flaw on the unit.. is that there's a scratch on the back side where the gooneck connects to the unit which can't be seen. I will try get pics of that tonight when I get home. This thing grew everything from softies to SPS. I took a few shots of the tank with an iphone.. nothing special. A few shots of the light units my red dragon colony some frags
  3. I had a wrasse that went missing for 6-7 months... I was cleaning up my refugium n one day.. n saw something flash by.. n guess who it was... fat n happy..
  4. It's going over a 36x24x20h tank sps dominant, I have a quad that I love.. but I wanted to minimize overshadowing hence the upgrade on few extra pucks of leds!
  5. pm sent
  6. depends on what you planning to keep, this is a very debatable topic... I'm a fan of leds, T5 are also very popular or you can do a hybrid t5 and led setup.. I guess your budget can help you narrow down ur choices..
  7. yeah, if that's what the bottle says than go with that. Alk will always fluctuate more than calc. Mag should not increase as alk gets consume. If your ur alk jumps up to 7.8 after water change I suggest you keep you alk around 7.8, much more stable that way.
  8. Doubt lighting is going to be your biggest issue if you have all that algea.. more info will help.
  9. My opinion... I would replace the test kit to salifert, personal preference, been using them for years without any issues and they're pretty easy to use. If you don't want to waste the kit, why don't you take some of tank water to LFS and have them do a test and you can compare your results to theirs. Alk will normally show daily swings through the day but that depends on what corals you are keeping. If you can show us a picture of your tank that will help out. Are you dosing 2 parts? In my softie/lps tank which has really low demand of calc/alk standard biweekly water changes will do it, no dosing required. On my LPS/SPS tank I have to dose Alk/Calc daily or my alk can drop 1-1.5dkh. If you don't have much corals with high demanding calc and alk, then I would double check that test kit.
  10. Can you release this already??!! =D
  11. issue fixed, thank you!
  12. +1 on that idea
  13. I will check when I get home tonight, thank you! I use the scene time often whenever I feed my tank after lights out... and It was a hassle that I had to keep going to my phone every few mins to turn the lights back up. Will update you tonight. Thanks!
  14. It will be fine for a 24 inch tank, I have a 160 on my 24" tank also.
  15. I understand but with scene mode I have it set at 10 mins. So whenever I'm testing out different setting I'm hoping the lights will stay on scene mode for 10 mins b4 going back to normal mode. Now after the update the scene mode stays on for only 3-4 mins before going back to normal mode. I tried changing the timer on the scene mode to longer period of time n it didn't make a change at all... still 3-4 mins
