    hey! Love the shade idea. Tried ordering 2 but unsure if the second order went through. Please confirm you received both orders.

    Thank you

    Hi Ludnix,

    The shades arrived yesterday and were a Cinderella fit! They do exactly what we’d hoped, and are very well made. A terrific value! Here’s a couple of “‘After “ photos with one “Before” photo.

    Do you have the ability to make a custom cover for a Red Sea 350 Deluxe with 2 Hydra Lights? Right now we have the kit one from Red Sea, but would like something sturdier that ideally has a hinged section so you don’t have to remove the cover to feed. Maybe just a pipe dream, but maybe a possibility. The answer’s always “no” unless you ask!

    Thanks so much,
    Barb

    Oh thank you for updating Barb! I am so happy to hear they are fitting well for everyone! May I have permission to use your before and after photos?

    If your talking about the mesh top for the red sea its unfortunately too large for my current projects. I am however happy to refer you to the following supplier who who mills them out of lexan with a door for feeding:
    https://safetoplids.com/product/safe-top-lids/

    I have no personal experience with this company however I hear great things of their products. If you have a need for anything small (under a cubic foot) but custom you can contact me any time. Special docks for equipment or controllers, cable passthroughs or cord managers, anything can imagine that is small I can help with!

    Thank you! I love your decor around the tank as well, it's going to be a spectacular tank as it matures!

    Any idea what this does to par? I know the spread is reduced a bit.

    Hi Brent, I responded to PM too, but for the thread's posterity I have not tested PAR on a dual light setup but if anyone has a meter I'd love to see their results. When I tested on my single light setup there was no reduction in PAR in the effective area, but a big reduction on the glass of the tank. There should be some loss of incidental light from the neighboring light on a dual setup, but it's so far out of the effective area I doubt it's very much.

    I have a par meter so I can do the testing for you once they arrive.

    Two slots left in the print queue and then I'm going to take a little a break to print out some new prototypes and do printer maintenance. I will resume sales after these last two slots about a week later, when I've had a chance to build up some inventory.

    These are legit. I really like mine. BRS should start selling these. File for a copyright on the code.

    Thanks for the vote of confidence Brent! I sent some photos into BRS a couple weeks ago but I have not heard back yet. Hopefully they will see this thread!

    Thanks again for the shade, Ludnix. I have my tank in my living room and felt like I was being constantly blinded. Reduced light pollution in the room SO MUCH and didn't affect the spread of my single set up at all. Could not ask for more other than wishing I'd have found this sooner!
