  1. If you don’t mind me asking, how much did that frag tank cost you? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Aqua Illumination LEDs

    Nothing except for the study that was done by by Echotech’s Coral Lab and was found to best produce the most optimized spectrum for coral growth. It is also recommended by Bulk Reef Supply in the video above for all Aqua Ilimination lights that they sell for optimal growth. It works best for me and many others because there was a study done to back it up. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Aqua Illumination LEDs

    So that screen shot from my controller above is the exact spectrum that kessil and other lights use that is already preconfigured. It is the most optimized spectrum for growing corals it’s just a matter of setting it yourself from the app versus turning a knob on the kessils. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    External Pump recommendations/ WTB

    Baldor pumps 1/8 or 1/16 hp pump should easily handle that. I think John over at Blue Ribbon Koi has a used one sitting on his shelf. I’m pretty sure I saw one there the other day. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Aqua Illumination LEDs

    AI is all I have over all of my systems, I have 2 hydra 52s, 2 hydra 26s, and 3 Primes. They all have virtually the same LED puck it’s just a matter of if they have 1,2, or 4. I absolutely love them. They are easy to control, feature packed, and the App is super easy to use. Also it is one of the only login systems on the market that doesn’t require a separate bridge/controller to make them WiFi enable, it is already built in. So you can adjust the lights from across the room or across the world. They can also be integrated with a DropCam (now called nest cam) so you can visually watch the adjustments you make to your tank as you make them if you aren’t able to be in front of it. If you have anymore questions or wanna see my setup/settings let me know. Also BRS has a video that includes an optimized spectrum for the lights. It looks like the image below.

    Temperature Swing- Pico

    Having the cheato in the back chamber works really well. I don’t even really use my chambers for any filtration apart from the cheato. They just house 2 pumps and some bio balls because I had the room and the bio balls. I threw the cheato in the third chamber with both the canister filter and the gfo/carbon reactor returning into the cheato chamber below the level of the cheato so all of the returned water has to float up and through the cheato before it can overflow back into the tank.

    Temperature Swing- Pico

    I have a 14g biocube that has been converted to be rimless and has an AI Prime over it so that puts out like no heat at all. I have one pump running to my GFO/Carbon reactor and another pump as my return pump from my canister filter. It’s been up through two different winters now and I have found that those two pumps running continuously keeps it at exactly 76.2 year round but there have been days or weeks that the weather has gone crazy and it has had a 4 degree +- swing and everything is perfectly fine. Bonus to not having a heater in the back chamber has also allowed room for an internal refugium so I was able to just grab some cheato from one of my larger systems and stuff it in there and the display light is more than enough to light the cheato.
