Hi, I recently got a Giesemann teszla light second hand for my 10 gallon tank, I was just wandering if it would work well for corals and if it could possibly grow sps, what concerns me about it is that I don't see any red LEDs, only white and blues. Also the fact that it is 6 years old and that the technology wasn't as good back then. I'm considering selling it and just buying a kessil or an AI prime but I don't want to waste my money if this light is good enough. Thanks for any help
Aqua Splendor posted a topic in Lighting ForumHello Reefers! Finally it's here, after many hours of work and some tweak I published my video about the EcoTech Marine Radion G5 Pro with T5 from Giesemann. I use the Aquatic Life Hybrid Fixture (god that thing has been so helpful for me). I recorded all the combinations possible with my Tank "Lab" full shot and a Close shot on one of my Blastomussa merletti. All the footage has been recorded the same night (Radion G5 Blue also), 4k 30fps. I never put multiple 4k Footage next to the other and gosh it's painful to render, it took 30hour and just for this. So I use Giesemann T5: Super Actinic, Actinic Blue, Super Purple, Aquablue Coral, Aquablue Azure. I told them what I was planning to do a long time ago and they have been patient and comprehensive, no pressure. I told them I was waiting to have a "real" camera before I start the things I want to do. I was waiting for the A7SIII sony but it never came, so I was tired of waiting and activate my backup plan and Bought A7III 1-2 months before the COVID-19. (good thing...) Talking about COVID-19, I'm in Isolation after a while so I finally got time to make that documentation video. I took my time to make this first video, I went to different iteration, I'm still not satisfied at 100% so any comments are welcome on how to make this better. Now that I have a Recipe, other videos in the same kind will be much faster to create (except for that render, 10-year-old PC...) I didn't want to make Review video about light too much on my channel because I want to buy a Spectrometer for doing my Review for the reef community. Since I'm alone and 100% independent, the cost of this is pretty high (2000-4000$), so it's hard right now to justify one, I have to pay my rent and food first then that thing is high on my priority... If my real full-time day job can come back... I also don't put Ad on my YT video or receive payment or partner to make a review for companies on YouTube, so let's just say money is not my motivation but it's needed. At some point, I will need to find a way but never at a cost of not being independent or 100% honest. YouTube might force me to put Ads because it doesn't suggest/push videos that don't have ads, so my videos are not being seen as they should. Sorry for that rant, it's just that I feel sometimes the Reef community on Youtube is aehmm... let's say, there is a lot of influence... That video means a lot to me, 3 years ago before I start my channel I was wishing "Dang I wish we have videos with full comparison", but no one is really doing it (I understood why after hehe). So fast forward 3 years later, I'm here doing it. Took time to accumulate all the hardware and part of the puzzle. The more I can remove video project out of my head the better I feel 😉 I tried to make it happen also with ATI but it didn't went well, unfortunately, I think the person I spoke didn't understood the amount of work it was required and it's free advertising for them (!). But... I think we could safely say that the bulbs are very similar so: Super Actinic -> True Actinic Actinic Blue -> Blue Plus Super Purple -> Purple Plus Aquablue Coral -> Coral Plus Aquablue Azure -> Aquablue Special The spectrum I showed in my video come from the website from Either EcoTech Marine or Giesemann. I modify them so we can overlay correctly, I don't think it's accurate to be honest, that why I want my own Spectrometer, but for the purpose or understanding, I think it will do the job. After Each record Clip I took a picture so I can publish on the forum also the essential: Full resolution here Sorry for that long post ;), by the way, English is not my mother-tongue so if I say something incorrect let me know. The next video will be with the Radion G5 Blue then 2 other light that I own also. Your feedback on this video is super important to me if I can do anything to make them better let me know on the Comment section of YouTube also (It helps to rank better the video) - Aqua Splendor
CoralVue Aquarium Products posted a topic in CoralVueVIDEO: Build the Perfect Reef Light with the Giesemann Stellar Hybrid Mount Your Favorite LEDs from EcoTech, AI, and Giesemann!
Kylebeano posted a topic in Hardware ClassifiedsLOCAL PICKUP ONLY PLEASE, in SWFL, NOT SHIPPING! Used DIY hybrid reef light, made of a 6 bulb Tek T5ho fixture, and replaced two bulbs with a current orbit marine LED light (~36w). The bulbs are 39w, 2 x ATI blue plus, an aquablue special, and giesemann super actinic. This is a really great blend of color with the LEDs and has produced awesome coral growth and colors. The LED is controlled with the current ramp pro timer, can mimic sunrise and sunset. The T5 can be put on timers to come on in pairs of two in between. Really great feature for only $225! The bulbs still have 6 months of life left in them, I just moved and downsized tanks. The light was mounted about 14" above my fish tank, no splash guard, has a little surface rust, but it is a sound fixture. Please email above or call/text 850-570-1423. Images are of MY coral grown under this light, including SPS, crocea clam, anemone. All flourished! Two used 36" LED light strips. One unknown brand actinic only, quality reflector, so might be ecoexotic or reef tech. The other is a dimmable BML (Build my LED) full spectrum light with splash guard/diffuser. Both come with power supplies. I bought them used a year ago but never got around to using them, now i moved and downsized my aquarium. These would be great supplementation to a T5 fish tank light, or can grow coral in a shallow enough tank (<20"). Selling BOTH INCLUDED with the hybrid fixture. Please PM or call/text 850-570-1423. Thank you.
