Hi, I have a TMC Reef Photon light (84 watts) running on a 15 gallon cube, I was wandering what intensity and colours I should run, right now I have it starting at a low intensity blue dominant colour at 10am then it goes up to a whiteish blue with white at about 66% and the blues at about 80%, thats at about 12-2 then the white goes back down again and its mainly blue until it fades out at about 11:30pm. I don't know if I'm going over the top but after watching some videos it confused me with the intensity as some lights run at 100% and some run at 40% and other people said if you don't have enough of certain wavelengths it can dull your corals. thanks for any help
Maverick Reefer posted a topic in DIY ProjectsIn April I set up an180 gallon marine tank(6x2x2) I love it and it is doing very well. However, in an effort to keep my 'tinkering' hands out of the tank, I finally persuaded my wife to let me buy some glass, wood and acrylic and build my own 50l display tank with a 25l sump and 7.5 l top off tank. It's been fun, fun, fun.... time to start a build thread. I'm aiming for a 'mini cycle' at worst. (there is nothing brown and hairy growing in the sump that's a reflection of the living room rug!) as I am seeding the tank with some siporax, a little sand, live rock and some sponge media from the180. I thought about purchasing TMC habitat 50 tank... they look so good! Then I thought to hell with spending almost £600 pounds on that... I would make my own 'version' for less than half that amount.... wish me luck! The tank including equipment should cost me less than £300. I'm really looking forward to receiving feedback on my plans for this mixed reef and its progress!
