    I saw there are some zeovit bottles in your sump. How do you find AF as compared to zeovit?

    Yes. My reef was powered by Zeovit the first months, but i did not see the big result in the color or growth so i get some sampels from AF and tested AF some months whit great results, much less work and to a real nice price! :)

    Got some updates pics of the growth in a couple of weeks :)

    Today i did take a big choice about keep my tank on only LED or upgrade to a Hybrid lamp, and about two weeks i recive my new ATI Hybrid Powermodule.

    I seen so many sick reefs whit this lamp so i think this is the way to go.

    My choice fell on a 4x39w + 2x75w LED chips, so then i ask, what kind of T-5 combo is good to get the highest par level?

    Beautiful colors on your acros mate, love your display :)

    That new light with the T5's will do wonders i'm sure. Best of both worlds with a proven record.

    Great choice on the new light.

    Seems a few people are going over to T5 or Hybrid from LEDs, myself included. Looking forward to the results.

    Think that too.

    Always loved T5 because of that good specter but im love at little bit shimmer and the fine tuning you are able whit the LED too, so think this is gonna be a good change!

    Gonna make a review for sure! :)

    After some hours play time in ATI Light Studio i found a nice setup! Now the lamp is in Aclimate mode and the power is only on 50% on the LEDS and 60% on the T5 bulbs, so i gonna adjust opp the power 10% every week for 5 weeks and see how the SPS gonna be. :)

    I take some quick photos under water today and a couple of FTS. :)

    Need som help. In the past weeks if have noticed brown spots on my Loripes. Seems like its loosing the brown pigments and change it for white.

    Someone who have any idea about what this can be? :)

    I change the light to ATI Hybrid from a Orphek V3 Atlantic one week ago.
