I just bought these to see how it works because the zoas I got only show true color under blues ! So my camera comes out clear but lacks color I’ll let you know how it goes they arrive tomorrow
Is the Orpek one? I was looking into getting that same exact one, but I didn’t know if it would with my 3 rear cameras.

It’s not that brand but basically the same ! And yes I have 3 cameras as well you just have to position the clip that comes with it on one of the 3 cameras

I don't like my oprhek one. The yellow +20k+ came all scratched up. Which is why photos are blurry from it.

James is the pump still giving you issues ? Did you find the perfect flow setting for it
It’s working good! After the clean, it works perfectly now.

The flow I think was messed up because of the new rock work, but I got it figured out now.

——

A localish reef reseller told me he might have a “heck of a nice system” 125 gallon setup with hood. It’s drilled, but has no sump, skimmer, or return pump.

Still don’t know about it, because I haven’t seen any pictures yet.

Wont know until you see it. Let alone if it leaks. Or has cracks in the holes. Yikes.

Thank you. Bta is still not done morphing though. Looks a bit different every week .

Edit, maybe the worm ate half his brain and now stupid is showing.
Morphs can sometimes be great I had brown zoas and then they turned pink lol

Its fun watching. I'm glad I took pictures. But, now I need to date them all. Pictures of the bta every where on my PC.
Husband got a new camera. Going to have to try for some pics soon.

Here is the only picture he has of it:
023F41EA-3524-4317-893F-EA8EE3E46A53.jpeg

He said he’ll get more pictures/info for it tomorrow.

Said it used to be a a wicked acro tank that this local club member is getting rid of.
Just the tank only??? Not the cabinet?
You said hood. But not the stand
Stand, hood, tank, lights (he’s still not sure what they are, so the tank may be a FOWLR for a while), and possibly “extra odds and ends”.

He will give me more info tomorrow though.

Hopefully a good deal. Sumps aren't cheap. Unless you go for a diy build.

I will definitely be going for a DIY build, because he said the owner sold the sump. That means I’ll also have to pay for a skimmer, return pump, etc.

He does do plumbing/sump building, but he charges like $200. (Not sure if that’s overall or just for labor)

If I do end up getting this, it will DEFINITELY be a slow burn.
