  1. That is awesome! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. This was an outstanding answer madweazl; gave me more than I could have hoped for to think on. I am still acclimating them and have them 10” over so I will slowly lower them. After the acclimation period is over. What do you run your intensity levels at during your photoperiod? With how detailed your charts on regarding PAR do you have a handy snapshot or chart of your color and intensity settings by hour? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. I’m new to Kessils and coming off old cheap LEDs. The lights put off a spectacular shimmer and I’m quite pleased with the cleaner look and performance so far. But one complaint is that the spectral x controller gives very minimal instruction. Ok you have a preset and an acclimation setting, yahoo. Is that preset for softies or high or SPS? Zero recommendations on mounting height in reference to tank depth - seems like including a simple chart here would be a good product marketing move. I have a 75g, 21” deep, mixed reef. Sps up top, LPS and ricordea near the sand bed. The LPS and softies seem very malleable to high or low light. In planning for the sps With these lights I know I need to get a PAR meter (anyone have a cost effective recommendation or used one I’m all ears). But that all said does anyone have experience with kessils and a recommended intensity set up over a photo period that has worked for them? Thanks for any thoughts. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. I read that on the 525 and up Red Sea is now using marine plywood instead of pressed wood; do you think in that case the stands will still be an issue? What type of tank are you currently running? I’ve also read good things about Waterbox systems recently but the crowd seems quite split on loving or hating rimless tanks.

  5. Great recommendations and thoughts; I hadn’t even thought about the splashing when cleaning. Top eurobrace like the SCA sounds like it could create a good look but better experience with cleaning. Keep the thoughts coming! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. I’m looking at several different rimless systems in the 60” range (red sea reefer 525, SCA 150 etc.) for my next build. One thing I’m paranoid about is long term durability. While love the look of the Red Sea I have serious difficulty believing that five panes of glass at that size (and internal pressure) sealed only with silicon and no bracing system will hold up for 10+ years. The SCA eurobracing system looks a little more stable. Does anyone have experience with these tanks or other rimless tanks they can share either good or bad feedback? Any thoughts are appreciated.

  7. Yeah that’s hilarious. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. Moderator close thread. I just realized I replied to my own thread from years ago. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. Yep, I had the same issue after running my typhoon 3 (but it had been running for years). I called them and was told it has to do with build up in the ASOV. You can either open it up, clean it with a flat head screw driver and reassemble (May do the trick, or order a new ASOV for $20. But that is definitely what it is. They are very responsive to calls as the other member mentioned. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. Any thoughts from reefers who have used fixtures they live would be appreciated. On the high end are the AI Hydras and Kessils worth they money? How do they compare and hold up over time? What would be other some other recommendations? Open to all considerations. I do like the option to mount on a bracket and leave my ceiling alone on this next build. I also would like something ideally that can be programmed to have a night moonlight setting. But again open to all thoughts; thanks for the help! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. My sps grow great and color well under LED. Pros: cheap power cost and no bulb replacement cost. Cons: more algae growth on glass, needs regular cleaning the keep looking pristine. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. Looks great! And less of a chemical hog than an sps set up. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. Don't think so - it was spreading without anyone picking at him. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. Recently began losing a 10 year old sand sifting star; I should say minimum of 10 years because that's how long I've had him. This week I noticed his arms undergoing necrosis like sea star wasting disease in the wild. Has anyone noticed this in stars in captivity? Is this simply how very old stars waste away? A bit of a bummer, this guys was my oldest livestock and went through two tanks with me. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
