    Glue it down to a small rock or shell. Maybe trade it in at your lfs.

    Hey Will, congrats on the surgery. Their are a few fish and inverts that have been known to eat and control aiptaisa. These include Radial Filefish, Peppermint Shrimp, and a handful of butterfly fish.

    I was under strict supervision. Not sure where the Duncan will be best for long term. Apparently his is going to get bigger. Has 2 new heads. Is top front ok?

    Somehow I end up with the soaked shirt every time! He uses some excuse about being 10 and not tall enough yet.

    I think so.
    And as we know , tanks evolve.
    And the lfs always was a deal on somthing new.

    The old top middle bottom thing Is kind not applicable in smaller tanks kinda. The Par difference is really low, compared to a larger tank.
    So there is almost noplace in the tank it won’t get good Light. So it’s all about flow and room to grow for a while.

    Looks good to me honestly. Good Light spot and the fringes apper to move.





    I’m not.

    But the smirk is getting pretty painful. ;):p

    It’s a standard led bio cube ? Not advanced , intermediate or some fancy word?

    I haven’t looked at the par on it yet.

    Nothing fancy. Actually comparable to the old CP version. Just a nicer spectrum I think. Par 38/peak 61, Lux 2700/peak 3510.

    Where dos the lux peak? At the top close to the Light ?

    I would have assumed it was 200 to 300 par at the top.
