    Carnation Tips

    The yellow tree is doing well in my tank so I figure I will give this a try. I know this is quite difficult so any tips is welcomed. This is after I mounted it 24 hours ago. I seems to have opened but not fully. I will feed the tank a variety of frozen food when I am home. In the morning I...

    Reeflink with MP40

    Like to hear your experience with this. Either with one pump or a pair of pump. Is it worthwhile. It's not expensive but I try to keep things simple unless there is a real benefit. Did a quick search it seems to have some connectivity issues too.

    Vortech Tunze and Jebao

    I can understand that Tunze is not going after Jebao (assuming it does have a case) because Jebao is sold on fishstreet but why Tunze is not going after Neptune WAV? EcoTech doesn't have to go after anyone. No one has imitated its products yet. The Chinese should go after Ecotech for the DC...

    Vortech Tunze and Jebao

    I am interested in facts and hopefully will learn something from here. So anyone actually familiar with patent law please offer some insight. This thread caught my attention because I am in the market for a pair of powerheads. I already have an old vortech mp40 and a jebao in the tank. The MP40...

    Bio Pellet Again

    Thanks guys. The pellets are ecobak pellets. I removed about 20% of the pellets yesterday and let's see. I am concerned about phosphate deficiency. Can always add nitrate as needed. The green tipped acro is a Jason fox flame. I would say it paled the most. It's a little difficult to dial in the...

    Bio Pellet Again

    Since I mostly keep SPS I like to get some opinion from people keeping SPS tanks with BioPellets as the primary means of nutrient export. This is my second time running a BP reactor. I started running it about 2 months ago, when PO4 was 0.1. and I think sometime during last week PO4 was down to...

    Looking for a centerpiece fish

    If you do not keep SPS, a pair of orange-spotted filefish is very unique and colorful. Mine swim all over the tank grazing for food.

    Radion G4 HEI Optics (Light Dispersing Domes) -- First step in true LED breakthrough

    Radion G4 HEI Optics (Light Dispersing Domes) -- First step in true LED breakthrough The a19 LED light bulb I use for my kitchen does not produce a disco effect. Why the same setup cannot be used for an aquarium fixture coupled with a big mh reflector? And the kitchen light fixture mount the...

    Radion G4 HEI Optics (Light Dispersing Domes) -- First step in true LED breakthrough

    Radion G4 HEI Optics (Light Dispersing Domes) -- First step in true LED breakthrough This might be the Achilles heel of LED fixtures. Light can only travel in straight lines. A point source no matter what lens is used will only result in a cone shaped illuminated area. If the cone diameter...

    Radion G4 HEI Optics (Light Dispersing Domes) -- First step in true LED breakthrough

    If you have a 4'x2' tank you can buy an ATI 8 bulb fixture for $900 including bulbs. Two hanging wires and one cable, even spread of lights. Or you can buy 3 or 4 radions, a lot of wires and hanging cable. I splurged and bought the ATI hybrid fixture, comparable in price to a set of radions but...

    Regal Angel Primer

    This might be the case if the fish is already big like 4" plus. How big is yours?

    Regal Angel Primer

    I have my 2" from LA and it's doing very well and FAT like how a angel should be. How much should I expect it to grow in year one? Also it has a broken bar on both sides towards the tail. Is it going to be a misbar?
