    Controlling Kessil with Profilux aquarium computer

    Thanks for responding. My question however is mostly Kessil-related: When using a 3.5mm jack plug for controlling the Kessil, is it possible to only control the intensity channel, or does inserting the 3.5 plug result in the two buttons on the unit being ignored?

    Smooth cycle

    I have long time engaged in preparations for a reef aquarium. This mainly consists of reading a lot. In a few months I would like to build a tank (~450 liters + 250 liters sump). When I buy live rock I would appreciate it if as much as possible life survives. Currently I have here a batch...
