  1. I decided I’m going to replace the stock lights on my evo. Considering the AI prime HD but I just saw Aqamai has a new model called the LRS coming out. Anyone have any experiences with the LRM?

    Hipargero Aquarium Light

    Hi, I was wondering if anyone had an opinion on the Hipargero Aquarium LED Lights https://www.amazon.ca/gp/product/B074STSMZC/ref=ox_sc_act_title_1?smid=A1MMQF53V4XMW6&psc=1 I'm looking to upgrade from the current stock LED light fixture that was provided with my Fluval evo 13.5 nano tank, and I came across this fixture. Seems like a reasonable price, I was just wondering about output and the types of corals it can support. Thanks in advance

    Nanobox retro 16 biocube

    Just set up my new nanobox led retro fit from intank ... Everything looks great other than I have no white lights ... I'm pretty sad ... I've mest with all the settings on bluefish2 app ... Everything is working fine other than the whites ... Dim everything to zero turn whites all up down and nothing ... UV light comes on ...??? Have I hooked something up wrong or is it faulty please help anyone
  4. Hello, I am finally starting up another 10 gallon nano-reef after a couple of years out of the hobby. I am building my own LED system and was hoping to get a couple of knowledgeable/experienced forum members to check off on my design. Specifically, I think my drivers and power supply should be sufficient to handle the load of the LEDs in this configuration, but I would be more comfortable getting another opinion. My hope is that this system can support a bubble tip anemone and SPS corals. Thank you for any help you can offer. There are three "strings" of LEDs, each one controllable by a PWM-dimmable driver. The three drivers are then powered by a single power supply and controlled by an Arduino Uno. Below are links to the components followed a screenshot of the schematic. LEDs Royal blue, blue, and red Violet Neutral Whites Driver LDD-L Series Mean Well Step-Down Mode CC DC-DC LED Drivers ("Wires", 700 mA, 9-36 Vin, 2-32 Vout) Power Supply LRS-150-24 Mean Well LRS Series Enclosed Style Switching Power Supply (24 Vout, 150 W)
  5. Hello, I was recently gifted a IM 25g Lagoon that I will be setting up in a couple of months. I want to be able to grow everything (softies, LPS, SPS, & clams) I have started purchasing equipment for this tank, with the idea that I will likely want to get a larger tank in a few years. With this in mind, I can't decide between the Kessil a360w (with controller/mounting arm) and 1 Nanobox duo. I am currently leaning towards the a360w but I would love to hear opinions. Years down the road when I upgrade to a larger tank, I would use 2 Kessil a360w or 2 Nanobox duos'. I also got a Aquamaxx HOB 1.5 skimmer, which should be a beast on this small tank and will future proof me as long as I stay under 80 gallons in the future. 🙂

    Kessil LED chips out ?

    Hello friends, i have tow kessil a150w (skyblue and ocean blue), recently i have noticed dimming of my ocean blue pendant , there should be 21 individual leds on metrix array, when i check carefully i have noticed 6 led's are out. can leds burned out itself or is it issue with driver ? if it is related to driver then i can give a try with local electronic shop to repair this ,if it is related to metrix array i dont think ill be able to find led array 😞
  7. Ended up breaking down my 4G cadlights nano and relocating inhabitants so I can have my desk back (starting a business and need for surface area...). I haven’t been following Nanobox developments since I bought it. Paid around $350 but see they’re now selling new for $299🙄. Never had a single problem with it! Black finish with blue metal cover. Willing to part with mine for $200 firm + shipping. Sorry, no trades please unless you’ve got drone parts😂. steve
  8. So I have had my evo since they first came out back in the middle of 2016 and recently I noticed some of my lights went out. Contacted fluval and they sent me a new light under warranty. It appears to be slightly different and the led’s seem to be better protected...... problem was that the freaking new light wouldn’t even turn on 😒. Fluval is sending me another one that should arrive today so hopefully that one actually works. But wanted to share some pics of the new light. The old one is on the right, new one on the left. Also the connectors are better and have a tighter fit

  10. This is not a cute little 'all in one' aquarium, this is a Frankenstein, a diy monster that is going to offend some with its lack of interest in traditional reefing. This is a hands on, built not bought reef. Most of you won't respond or comment, it's expected, but you will look because you must, it's your nature. So here for your enjoyment (quiet, unresponsive enjoyment) is a reef tank that has undergone changes, that has evolved since the first post and is flourishing. Here is the beginning, if you can make it to the end you might find that you enjoy it instead of skipping to the end now and not understanding what you are looking at... ... So this is my current Pico... 2.5 gallons... (this is a crappy picture that I murdered even further with a photo editor...) 6/26 new tank fts 9/20 fts Fts 10/12 Fts 12/3 And things are starting to get cramped, when the Duncan is fully extended he really takes up a lot of space on his own, not that he cares. He's just like that, but is also my favorite coral in the tank. (he's also growing 2 (maybe 3) new heads. I also want to spread out the zoas, move the Kenya tree further away and put the xenias in their own area. The anthelia I mowed down already but know it will come back which is fine. So enough of the why, let's get to the point. The new tank is going to be 6.5 gallons. (it's gonna be huuuge). I'm currently working on the hood and stand. I will be using my sump and canister filter from the smaller tank still. It's a semi hex and it was a gift. The wood is rough cut cedar I had left from a gazebo I built for a customer. So here are a few things I'm planning to do differently this time, because I have been paying attention : Better flow! I mean way better, turbulent! alternating! flow flow flow! My entire scape will be mounted to a removable background to make it easier to add new corals, move corals, treat algae or pests (should they appear from thin air or awaken from hibernation). This will also allow me to dip the entire scape if the corals require it. I will be adding violet and turquoise leds to my lighting and switching out my 10k whites for neutral whites for a better blending of color and spectrum. Ok, so here are a few things I want to do but won't really know how they will work until I get it set up. I plan to have a set of return lines behind my Live rock scrap and a set up top facing down. These lines will be powered by separate pumps that will alternate via a wave maker. I'm hoping that will be much better for keeping detritus from settling. My canister filter will be a sort of closed loop set up. Two returns coming up from the bottom with heads/nozzles designed to sweep the bottom of the tank and the drain mounted in the bottom as well to (theoretically) catch any debris. I plan to hollow out two small pieces of rock to hide these nozzles. Will my green star polyps hate this constant flow? They will be spread out on the bottom of the tank. I still have a lot to do and decide on, like most things I will probably change my mind about a dozen times before it is all said and done. So this is the beginning, I post pictures as I go, maybe you will find it interesting or maybe you won't (boooo) if you have tried any of the things I've said please let me know how or if they worked out for you. Thanks (fingers crossed I don't just screw this up :p)
  11. Hi all. I've changed lights again and have 2x Kessil A360W E-series lights I no longer need. They are the saltwater Tuna Blue spectrum. Beautiful lights and I had great results with them. They have about 4 months of use on them, 7.5 hours a day. Full disclosure - one light has a little bit of pitting on the hanging ring (but the body/LEDs are flawless). I also have the controller (with magnetic mount) and a link cable for the lights. All are in perfect working order. Will sell separate or together. Free controller if you buy both! Price includes tracked/insured shipping to CONUS. International at your cost/risk. Message with any questions! Thanks! Kessil A360We Tuna Blue - $225 Each Kessil Controller - $70 Buy both lights and get the controller free!

    WTB: Hydra 26 HD

    Looking for 2 Hydra 26 HDs .....
  13. Hi all, I'm disassembling my custom LED fixture and selling the 48W LED super spectrum pucks. I worked with Yann to develop this specific flavor after significant testing. These are PCBs with premium LEDs intended for a DIY assembly. Yann sells my mix here: https://blueacro.com/acrostar/ for ~$85 shipped. These are custom chips with what I consider to be the absolute best spectrum for coral growth, fluorescence, and color mixing. Channel 1: 4x Royal Blue (450nm), 1x Warm White (2700k, 80+CRI); 1A max current, 15V required Channel 2: 2x Royal Blue (450nm), 1x 425nm Violet (Luxeon UV), 1x 415nm Violet (Luxeon UV); 1A max current, 12V required Channel 3: 1x Lime, 1x Warm White (2700k, 80+CRI), 1x Royal Blue, 1x Neutral White (4000k, 80+CRI); 700mA max current, 12V required Channel 4: 1x Blue (485nm), 1x Royal Blue (450nm), 1x Cyan (500nm); 1A max current, 9V required. A lot of thought and experimentation went into this configuration. It's cost me buckets of LED's to figure this out... but I feel like this is the PERFECT mix . At 100% it should result in something like 19-22k light (depending on your perception). It's focused on growth over unused accent colors but does include one Cyan and one Lime. The lime is too cool to not include and really allows a whiter look when called for - I feel that it does harm the overall color rendering, but it is an extremely efficient way to get a whiter light when you want it. If possible, I would run a 5th channel with just the lime. Cyan (~500nm) also doesn't do much for the coral but is necessary to compensate for the gap in phosphor converted white. This light leans towards warm white over neutral white - more warm white gives a very rich coloration that is less "sterile. Channel one, with one WW and 4 RB's is perfect for dawn and dusk viewing. You can see how it causes a reef tank to fluoresce here: You can see more of the coral growth and color rendering here http://bostonreefers.org/forums/index.php?threads/fresh-build-the-clean-white-stage.154756/page This is a bit of a specialty item - so let me know if you have any questions. They are sold with solder pads (not solderless headers) and are used, but have only reached about 1/10th of their usable life. Send me a text 978-502-7037 (preferred) or respond to this post. Best, Rob
  14. Hey all, question regarding coloration/“pop” improvement with Ecotech Radion upgrade options.I’ve been running a G1 Radion for something like 6 years over my 34 gallon Solana. I’m pretty satisfied with output, and the spread is acceptable, corals grow fine, so no real “problems.” But I’ve never loved the coloration it gives my tanks, compared to what I’ve seen on other tanks with different LED’s or newer Radions. So I’m considering an upgrade. Obviously the most affordable option is to send in the one I already own for Ecotech to upgrade to the G3. And of course since I’m thinking about it, I’ve also been checking out the G4 and G4 pro. I don’t need the G4pro for the increased output, but I do like the idea of more color channels. What I want to know is: is it worth the upgrade (any of them) in terms of visual appeal and making colors pop? Will I see a noticeable difference from G1 to G3? Is G4 way better than G3 (aesthetically)? Has anyone made any of these leaps and can talk to how the corals appear under the improved spectrum? Will the G3 upgrade be enough to see that new “pop”? Is the G4Pro way better than the regular G4 in terms of color/“pop”?I’d love some first-hand experiences with this. Thanks!

    kessil dens matrix issue ?

    Hello Reefers , i brought this a150w ocean blue led, and im really happy with this light, recently i have captured the dens matrix array of this led light, i have notice some dimming of the one violet led, is this some kind of violet led or is this dying ?
  16. So, I acquired this light through a trade. Prior to this light, I've never had something so adjustable, user customizable or powerful. Quiet frankly, it scares me a bit. It has a setting for lps and sps. My concern is, I've never ran a tank that simulates real sunlight or a sunlight schedule. Ive always ran my reefs with 6-8 hours of light. Now with nearly 13 hours of light. I'm concerned about nusance algae issues. Also, I've cut all the settings by 60-70% for acclimation.
  17. Hello, I'm now to this hobby. Been lurking this site for a couple months and finally ready to make the plunge. I've been reading up on rocks, cycling, livestock, power heads and everything else. I've actually started to accumulate supplies for this like a RODI, refractometer, rock, containers, wave-makers and other supplies I feel confident I could apply to whatever tank I end up choosing. And that brings me to where I'm stuck at, the tank. I've had a Biocube 32 LED in my cart for a couple months but can't seem to pull the trigger. I really love the look, I like that as a newbie and can kind of jump in with few additions (to start). I read the arguments against the Biocubes but I also see the incredible things people have done with even stock lighting; even somehow keeping a healthy anemone in a stock tank where it shouldn't be possible. However, the arguments against starting with a Biocube seem valid but the problem I have is finding an alternative in the same price range. For $400 I have a stand and a tank that is *close* to ready to cycle and then stock coral and fish plus I also dig the look. People say you can build your own tank for the costs of a 32 but I'm having trouble finding the info I would need to do this. So thats why I wonder if there a resources available on this site for this? I tried searching and will continue to so but so far I haven't found quite what I'm looking for. I'm looking to start a coral tank 40g or under with LPS and softies. Haven't really been hooked on SPS but I would however like an anemone (I imagine some experienced users ask "why would you want one?"). Then just a few fish like clown pair, a watchman goby and when the tank is established and I have cultivated enough pods on a separate tank, a Green. Mandarin Finally a CUC made up of snails, a pom pom, hermits and micro brittles depending on tank requirement. Part of my reservation is you don't know what you don't know. Like type a glass seems like something that becomes import but I'm just building the foundation of my knowledge and while you can read and research a component of that is time and experience. But still, I'm afraid I'm going to find out the hard way why something is important and end up regretting my purchases. If you made it this far, thanks so much for reading and I appreciate any tips. ~Danny

  20. Started this tank on March 30, 2017 with stock pump and filter sock, koralia nano from previous tank, and 5 lb of LR, and about 8.5 gallons of saltwater to start. The tank is almost a year old now and some upgrades have happened. (will take some better pics with the camera later) Equipment -IM Ti ATO (going to tunze nano ato) -Ran a kessil a80 for 11 months before going to a radion (diffusion kit/rm -Jbj 1/15 hp Chiller with 1.0 return -Sicce 0.5 return - inTank Media rack with 2 filer floss on top, seachem matrix, bottom two filter flosses -inTank universal media skimmer -was running a IM desktop Media Reactor with carbon but since the RMS mount is fairly big i had to remove the reactor (don't mind that because its freaking study!) So in turn I have a Fudge basket that I might run with more matrix in it if the tunze 9001 doesnt work out (coming) -MP10 wQD -inTank Frag rock (2) - 5 lb LR -3 lb Sand (going to take down to less lb's till its barley covered probably -Cobalt Aquatics Neotherm 100w heater - 6.5 chemipure Live Stock: - Rainbow Acans - Duncans - Walking Aussie Duncan - Purple Tipped Frogspawn - Young Maxima Clam - Rock anemone -3 nassarius snails -3 Trochus Snail -3 Aussie young scolymia/s? LOL -Side plant is one of 3 succulents I got at a baby shower and decided to try to grow it under the XR-15 instead of my bedroom window lol, so if they switch out ever that why. Let me know if you have any thoughts on the tank! Plan on upgrading to a Lagoon 25 at some point this year I hope!

    Biocube 32 LED upgrade

    I am thinking to upgrade my biocube 32 LED. There are expensive option like Steve’s LED, NanoBox Retrofit and open hood option with AI prime. I don’t want to go with the open hood option. I read some people used truelumen 12 inch led strip. But not sure if this is a good option or not. Please help!!

    NanoBox Retro or Steve’s LED

    I am planning to upgrade my Biocube 32 stock light. I researched all the forums regarding this topic and didn’t get a satisfactory answer so far. Please let me which one I should go with, Steve’s LED or NanoBox retro?
  23. I have taken down my tank and am looking o sell my DIY led/t5 hybrid light. This is a housing from a Coralife 4x 24" T5 lunar fixture. I removed 2 of the T5s, as well as the lunar LEDs, and mounted a 4 channel Nanobox Duo M inside of it. So total it has 2 24" T5s in the front and back each with individual reflectors, and a Nanobox Duo M (4 channels, moonlight channel, & lime LEDs) mounted in the middle. 4 channel Bluefish controlled with the t5s on a separate outlet. I'll also include the old nanobox duo gooseneck in case you want to restore it. The nanobox fan is burnt out. It is an easy fix, but works fine without it since the t5 has a fan and the housing is looser around the nanobox than the original housing. It also needs a cover for the nanobox fan hole I cut into the top. It also could use a better plexiglass protector, I couldn't find a single piece big enough. The mounts for the T5s are VERY rough, and it wasn't a finished project when I took it down. With a little TLC this could be a really clean fixture, but it's currently a bit rough around the edges. That being said, this thing works great for growing corals and has a great mix of flashy led and natural fluorescent spread. I really like the colors, and look of this light. I am selling because I have taken down the tank, sold all my stuff, and am moving across the globe.

    Orbit led light HELP w settings

    Hey guys i just got an 18inch current orbit led light and has a bunch of cool settings sunrise/sunset / night / day/time need help what’s best light quality to run like how much percent white blue green red and what would be a good on and off period just general full setup help if anyone got experaince please
  25. I need help with this project. I currently have the 12g nano cube LED tank, it has the following specs: 12-gallon Dimensions: 15.8" x 13.8" x 14.8" Capacity: 12 gallons LED Bulbs: 8 total: 5 blue, 3 white LED Total Output Wattage: 10.4W Pump: 8 W SP1-400 0.8 LIFT Power Supply: 110V, 60 Hz Weight: 29 lbs My question is, where do I find LED’s to replace the ones currently installed? I’d like to go more 50:50 on the color, maybe experiment with a red or purple in there as well. I have reached out to jbj customer service and was told they don’t offer replacement LEDs. This tells me I’ll need source them somewhere else. Any advice would be greatly appreciated! Thank you ?
