Hello everyone! I'm new to the forum and was digging through but couldn't really find what I was looking for so I thought I would make my own post and say hello. So hello everyone! So, I'm setting up a 10g nano reef. Pretty excited about it, I've been doing a bunch of reading and it's nice to return to the hobby. I currently have 2 planted tanks, and years ago I used to keep saltwater fish and some beginner corals with limited success. Anyway, primary purpose for this post is a lighting question. I hear great things about the AI Prime and it's ability to grow coral, however, when I look at photos it looks like it definitely gets some pretty bad disco effect. Can anyone shed some light as to how the aquariums look with it? I've never seen anyone running like a daylight sunny mode either, is it possible to get more of a pure white light, almost to replicate what it looks like when reef diving on a sunny day? The other light I'm looking at is a Kessil a80. It appears to be maybe a bit brighter? Can I still program the a80 different colors or is it more restricted? Does anyone recommend one over the other? Something completely different? I'm really hoping to not be restricted to low light corals, I would love to be able to do some SPS. My other concern is that my tank isn't a cube, it's a 10g aqeon tank in the standard rectangle (10x13x20). Will I be able to cover my tank with either of these lights properly without getting a ton of light pollution? Any other suggestions are welcome! Best, Chris
He just so full of personality. When I’m near the tank he comes up to me and dose a little food beging. I feed him 1-2 large omega one sinking pellets a day one in the morning and or at night. Along with a block of frozen carnivorous diet every 2 days that he shares with my Falco Hawkfish, the two get along quite well however when I first added the Falco my Blood Redfire shrimp I named Sam began to hide more within a week he molted for the first time since I got him and two days later he was back to his old self eating outta my hand and he actually began to clean the Falco and the Falco I named Duke let’s Sam clean him. My emerald Crab keeps Duke in check I think, think he inserted a fear of claws however has not hurt Duke. Since I got Duke some of the white on his body has gained some more red spots and he seems to be getting more patterns. Sam on the other hand only comes into the open when I’m around. I recently added two clowns, 10 gallon nano well actually 11.5 gallons if you count my refugium that I grow cheato and pods along with rotifers in, 1 turbo and 4 hermits along with a Falco and of course a blood red fire shrimp and of course a emerald crab, the refugium serves as my waste exporter along with quite possibly helping to oxidate my tank and to remove some ammonia I do got 20lbs of live rock along with 20lbs of live sand, however the base rock probably needs 4 more months before it’s completely live rock however it is getting a nice amount of coralline algae and I’m thinking of getting a bubble tip anemone around June or July. A unexpected pro of my Falco Hawkfish is he seems to be destroying my bristle worm population but that might be more con than pro considering they are useful to an extent. I’m 3 months in on this tank and I’m honestly loving my first saltwater tank however I’m probably pushing my boiload a little but I do weekly water changes or a water change every 3.5 days If i feel it needed like seeing algae growth that shouldn’t be happening because my cheato should be starving it.
First post here and a pic of my first coral. Candy cane, sitting about 20 inches below my ai prime in a 10gal nano. Placement ok? And what's that protruding from the center? Feeding tube? Newbie at this. Sorry for the bad photo. Still trying to figure out what works best using my Samsung S7 Edge Thanks!!
I have a 10 gallon reef with a marine orbits pro for lighting, my question is.. How high should I run this light for best growth and colors? I currently have 3 different zoas, hairy mushroom colony, one open brain coral, gsp colony, frogspawn, and hammers.. right now I'm running 100% blue and 65% white.. the tank size is a traditional 10 gallon aquarium its made by top fin, these are the dimensions for that tank 10.1" Long, 20.1 " Wide, 14.1" High.. are my light to high right now or to dim? Please help me out.. here is a link to the exact light I'm using (18"-24" model) and a pic of my tank, thanks for all the help! http://current-usa.com/aquarium-led-lights/orbit-marine-fixtures/orbit-marine-pro/
