I have had this for 4 or 5 years, the most beautiful acro frag I ever saw, when I placed it here I broke the tall twig off, it died.
This has died back twice and bleached a few times but comes back.
It is on a 3 cm disk and is based out onto the scape at the back, this is from the front, from the desk end (left) that "bump" is bright green, no rush for a new branch! ;)

Wonderful PE on that beauty!

Ok, update to keep the ginger bird happy, the cherub has had a stay of execution (eviction), it unsettles the tank more trying to catch fish than it is worth in this case, it is on it's final warning! ;)

This is the new light, back to 4 tubes but 2 x 75 watt led, three foot unit so 4 x 39 verses 8 x 24 watt T5s.
Still un tested!

I moved the two foot unit to the right today, darker desk end, to get the leds over the acros more as that is how it will be, test tomorrow and sort out a bulb choice!

This i
Going to be interesting to see the change in tank appearance and effect the new light will have on your system. Which LEDs (colors/wavelengths) are employed in the 75w units?
[/QUOTE

This is the latest version of the light, the leds are the same, no white diodes, their stock "custom" program is the Bali program, you set the length of day and it ramps through that cycle dawn 'til dusk, mine is set for approx 8 until 8.
The tubes will be on two pairs, just on and off but you can set the time for each pair on and off.

For that price it better be good!

Glad you caught that high PO4 issue.

I got it used for £50, the four replacement tubes will cost me more than the fixture did if it works! ;)
For 50£ you say? I understand it's used but that still seems like a great buy! I demand pics of the new/used unit. Oh, I mean, can you please post some pics of the unit you bought?

What lamps are you going to run in it?

I have been thinking about this since I got it as I will be going from 8 tubes to 4.
I know the led cycle so I think I will go with 2 x blue plus, 1 x purple plus and a coral plus.
The left in the pic is the back so PP,BP, CP , BP.

Snazzy!
 

Do you think that slowing down the water through your sump benefits the chemistry of your tank?
