  1. All good! Dimming below 1% and the colors work just fine. Thanks Spencer.
  2. It is fixed for the graph, but still not carrying over to the sliders for me. Another thing that does not carry over is the "Display Channel" set to OFF setting, they still show. for example I only use 4 channels, but all six show... I just tested and it will write a zero, also the light is off. If you could add those super cool + and - buttons for fine tuning would be great for stubby fingers like mine. maybe above and below the sliders. But entering text is fine too. these are minor tweaks, but all in all this is great. Awesome new feature indeed!
  3. Super! Thank you spencer To make it perfect IMHO would be an import export feature for the schedules for easy sharing and swapping. Oh, I just found out it doesn't show dimming values below 1%, even if I enter manually (I don't know if it saves it though). It would be nice to set lower values like in the default settings. I use 0.4 % for moonlight for example.
  4. very cool. am I right that I can now define a moon phase with for example the blue channel only being at like 1% for a few hours and then shut all channels off completely?
  5. sorry to hijack, but the SWC section is gone from this forum?
  6. The fan pwm is hardwired to the white channel ch1 pwm. So if you lower the whites the fan should also lower the speed accordingly. unfortunately the systems is very delicate, so if you had some voltage spikes in your power mains or some water in the light connector you may have damaged the controls. try using another bluefish port / channel and test if that is still OK. If not the driver may be the issue.
  7. Yeah that is right, but I was referring to the solution strenght wich is mentioned. So if I want to thin out the vodka with water to get lower dosage, the baseline for calculations is 100 % solution is 40% alcohol 50% solution is 20% alcohol ... ?
  8. Hey guys, I have been reading the vodka guides here and just want to make sure I don't get screwed in my calculations by different international standards and number conversion. For the calculations, 100% solution strenght mentioned in the guides equals 80 proof / 40% vol. Vodka? So if I have a 35% vol. Vodka at home, this would equal 87,5% solution strenght? Right? Or does the solution strenght mentioned already refer to the % alcohol value?
  9. Yeah. Great support. Needed replacement part and Spencer was most generous. Thanks again.
  10. Hey, just love your tank + photos. About the spiraling - fun is, I just read about this in a German forum before I came to this thread 10 min ago. Consensus for growth pattern was like that: low flow = vertical + thick (spiral) high flow = horizontal + thin. Also placing them low seems to ecourage the vertical growth pattern. No proof at all, bu maybe that helps.
  11. putting everything together ... getting the pump down there in the mp3 was a nightmare and made me realize that my arms are just too thick with muscle. fortunately my gf helped me out with her child-worker like hands. neat not so neat let there be light
  12. hey, just setting up the 12g edge. following...

  14. some pics the finished MP3 BlueFish Mini + FanControl Mod. The potentiometer works like a charm together with the PWM fan control and gives me the quiet I desire. Put together in a nice case, also serves as extension cable... STUFF Stand finished and first mockup
  15. update! life and some other things made me put the reef project on a halt. now to get things going. Meanwhile I had time to ... - collect the edge, all the equipment and stuff. - forget about my research. - finish the BF mini power and fan control mod for the marinepac3 (works like a charm) - pics will follow - envision the perfect scape - see pic below. center piramid. little shelf left, branch on the right to the pump. just the best for how the light is positioned on the edge. should leave enough room for growth. - start researching again. - make 60l of salt water in a much too big barrel for our flat. - notice that where I first planned to set up the tank it will get 38°C in summer (south windows top floor), so I decided to go down one floor where I will have 25°-26°C (now the maisonette pays off). - change the color of the tank from black to white. - start building my own stand. That is where I am now. Water in the tank is planned in two weeks. to be continued...
