I think I might have re-initialized when I was trying to help you with your linking issues.
Confirmed with NP. User error. It retains settings when unplugged. I re-initialized.

Ok last post for the night, then I’m actually going to bed, lol.

I’m going to (once I get home from work tomorrow) do the following:
  1. Vacuum top layer of sand, rinse in tap water, replace.
  2. Super clean glass
  3. Clean off GBA from big Paly rock
  4. 5 gallon water change
  5. Re-adjust height on Noopsyche light
  6. Finish figuring out the %’s on the channels
That’s my rough plan for tomorrow. Hopefully I will be able to get it all done?

Been trying to figure out how to use this thing for the past hour or so. Can’t even figure out how to power on the remote, let alone work the light.

Anyway, I’ll get it figured out eventually. Guess all of these troubles are to be expected with new technology. ;)

Awesome, thanks! If I have any questions that I can’t find answers to in the video or your website, I’ll be sure to shoot you a PM. ;)

Nice! I strongly suspect that their winners aren't chosen at random, so I bet you're up next.

What lights are you running now?
We are just inviting more people to participate in the giveaway event, But not the default candidate! Our lottery is a real lottery.thanks!

Do you have one? And controller? I will update photos tomorrow. I am really worn out. Today was so busy. Son got a new toy and he was having a blast. These lights, I was fighting for 3 hours mounting (outside) but it worked. Assembly. I wish I could have recorded this, but that would have been over 30 minute video.
I can use Premiere to edit the video for you

Morning everyone. So this is what I have going on right now:

C83DAA7A-0737-4ED1-8BA0-AB8D4B8A68D6.jpeg

The black box is still over the tank and is the main source of light. The Noop is on and running, but no light is reaching the tank. I wanted to do this just to make sure the light was 100% functional before adding it over the tank. I didn’t want to actually remove the black box today because I’m at work and I couldn’t observe the corals to see how they are liking the new light. I will most likely remove it tomorrow.

(Oh, and the fw is doing good as well :p)

You guys have been and are very nice. I didn't do a proper installation as it is installed on the outside of canopy. But, It looks good. I am shorter than my aquarium So I don't see the top of the canopy. I can always, if needed make a video on what I did. Very simple.

The hard part was figuring out how I wanted to install them. I use the canopy to protect my young one from looking at the lights.

I have words, just not sure how to use them. You'll figure it out.

The light timer is very easy to program. Once dialed in, you can adjust the time frames of how long you want them exposed under what strength and for how long. My orbits were nothing this nice. Exactly what I wanted. A light I could have a solid ramp up with sunset/sunrise, afternoon and evening. I love it.

Oh jamessss we working on the tank :eek: ?
Sadly no. I’m just about to eat dinner. We took forever at Walmart and I had to shower because I had been working. So it’s 6:51 right now and dinner time. :(

If I have to stay up late and work on it, I will.

Aquasd has some prettier ones for $20 (and I think their shipping is cheaper too).

This just looks like a normal Duncan under blues
Bad pic but my Duncan under blues , if I move it higher on rock (higher par) it will turn all green

Oh, I wasn’t looking to buy a neon Duncan because I already have one, lol. Just looking to see how much they sell for.
