When you get them up and running be sure to come back and let us know how you like themJust purchased two of these to supplement my ap700 on my 60 gallon tank. The corners stay too shadowy with just the ap700 because the tank is 48 inches.
The nicrew just arrived today I dont have them up yet but they are big i was surprised.
That looks sweet!I have the 50w version on my biocube. The biocube was in my garage for a decade (tried to get my son interested, he didn't get interested and tookn it down). This is not my main aquarium so no big buck items. Live rock came out of my other tank, $80 JBJ ATO, $70 hygger nano wave maker, 20lb bag of live sand and the nicrew light.
I have no complaints. As long as you know there isn't going to be any sunrise/sunset/app control, individual spectrum control etc. Basically you set blue and white channel intensities to where you like them and plug into an outlet timer to turn on/off automatically (Same for my other tank with two halides only). You can make it as blue or white as you want it. On my size tank I'm sure it will grow anything. Only sps I have are montipora cap, reverse superman monti and a green stylo. I have a neon green goni, zoa and some encrusters on at the bottom. Light was strong enough to bleach a lepto at the bottom so I moved it into shade. Everything else has been fine and maintained their colors. I run blue channel at 60%, white channel at 20%. No skimmer, 250ml Seachem matrix media in back chamber, factory biocube cartridge filters and weekly 25% water changes. Hasn't been up long enough for any growth reports
I got them up last night, have not fooled with them much yet. I've got them set on 2nd to lowest blues right now. I want to lower my ap700 this weekend and dial everything in a little tighter.When you get them up and running be sure to come back and let us know how you like them
does anyone have the light with dual channel timer working?
Thank god I found this thread. I just ordered the light today and it's coming next week.
I'd suggest you look into the Pro timer by Nicrew as well. This timer is versatile and might work on the Nicrew HyperReef if it has the right connections. I showed you the male-female jack in the pics. Whoever has the light could you confirm if it has this connections? With this timer you can adjust intensity and program the light to mimic sunrise/sunset mode. I have 2 of these connected to different Nicrew units for my FW tanks.
