    Dream Lighting Systems

    My Dream Lighting I have created this new topic to get some input from the community on a lighting system that I wanted to buy and or create for my new dream tank. So I have two display tanks and a third coming soon. The reason for this is that my older XR15 pro Gen3 are starting to show wear and one of them is blinking bright once a day and then goes back to normal after a few minutes. I do have one as a backup to this one so once they both go then I plan on just using a T5 light for the frag/quarantine system as this is cheap and has a outstanding success. Bluefish Aquarium LED Controller So, with that said I need a new lighting system and was planning on using the following and would like some feedback on members who have experience with one or more of these items. Please keep in mind that this system will display in my living room, so I want something outstanding for look and function. First up I wanted to use the Bluefish Aquarium LED controller as it has some functions that I think would be cool to have and hopefully some great affects. 1). Real location simulation 2). Weather Simulation. 3). Realistic Thunderstorms. Works with both LED and T5. Has anyone had this controller and used any of the above features? Aquatic Life T5 dimmable unit. T5 are the industry standard and it seems like many tanks do well when having these installed. I noticed that many LED just do not seem to have the same look as these. Being since it is dimmable and has a 0-10v port for it dimmable ability I can attach it to either the Bluefish controller or the Apex. Either one can dim it, but I believe the additional features can be used with T5 and the LED together. Any thoughts? And third I was going to pair the other two items with another industry standard lighting system from Kessil. Here I would be limited to A360W-E Tuna Blue LED Aquarium Light (Wide Angle). Here I can attach it to the Bluefish controller and take advantage of all it features. Any thought? Apex Lunar Lights And finally, I was going to use the Apex Lunar Simulator Lunar LED Strings. This will give me the last affect I am looking for without using higher end lights to achieve the same thing. These can be replaced without much cost and will actually be hooked up to the Apex. My understanding is that the above items will simulate a reef as close as possible. Any thought or comments will be very helpful.
  2. Hey guys, I've been incredibly busy with life the last few months with moving and work, that I wasn't able to focus too much on my reef keeping besides maintenance. Now that I am able to focus on it again, I have a question I am hoping someone more knowledgeable than me can help answer. I currently use a Aquatic life 115 Mini internal skimmer in my AIO sump of my DIY 25g tank. I have used it the past year. I would love to use some the better skimmers available, but because my tank's back chambers are only 2.9" wide clearance, I barely could fit the aquaticlife without basically forcing it down the chamber. I think this is causing some issues with the intake of the skimmer, since the intake is against the wall. I am thinking about a upgrade, since Im not happy with its performance lately, such as the skimmer not increasing production after a heavy feeding, giving clear tea-like skimmate, the bubbles are not fine enough and the foam head being small. I was looking at the Aquamaxx HOB 1.5 protein skimmer and wondered if that is considered a beneficial upgrade. I figured it must be since it would easily fit in the back chambers, and free up space there.

    RODI Water Question

    Hello All, I've been struggling with GHA for the last few months. My tank is 11 months old. I thought perhaps my RODI filters or pre filters needed changed. I bought a TDS meter after changing light settings, feeding less, trying GFO. I have an RO Buddie. I depleted the DI cartridge from them an replaced it was another brand. This has been the only major change. I haven't tracked gallonage through it but carbon/sediment filters should be changed every 6 months and I've ordered those. Currently faucet TDS is 389 +/-. Current DI output it between 7-9. Could this low level of TDS be responsible for my algae? I am going to replace the carbon and sediment and see what the TDS is after the change. Any thoughts?
