Follow the tank on Instagram here! Water Change Counter: 3 Status: I've lost some frags while a couple are slowly growing (Triton results on page 3, unclear on the root cause, leaving tank for two weeks during xmas) -12/16 Premium Aquatics really hooked me up with nice tonga branches. I think the Tropic Eden rock is well worth the money and likely an underrated product! Inspiring tanks...
Has anyone tried the ReefBreeders Pico light models? I'm interested in the full spectrum, mostly. Secondly, the "saltwater" model. The saltwater model with one violet and four blue LEDs is probably too blue spectrum for my tastes. But I'm not sure about the full spectrum light having enough blue spectrum for corals. I'm looking for a quality, but affordable, small light for a pico. I'm hoping to grow Leptastrea only, since real estate is limited in a pico and I like encrusting corals. Maybe plus an easy softy but I'd like to make this a tiny species tank. What information is available for Leptastrea puts it as happiest in low-med lighting. This LED might fit the bill? I have found little in terms of reviews from people who have actually used these lights to grow things. For reference, my tank is tiny: it's ~1.6 gallons (closer to 1.3-1.4 with sand and rock I think), 9x6x6" cube. So I shouldn't need a big light to be sufficient for the water volume.
The Aqamai I've had for about 4 or 5 months so far doesn't seem to be the best fit for my tank, I love the customizability but the flow is too intense and too-narrow for my tank, it also has an excessive min and max GPH for my setup, I'm really interested in trying out the re-branded coralbox RN-1 (Reefbreeder RP-M) as the less-intense, wider-flow pattern sounds perfect.
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.
