Correct! I like the fact that the Noopsyche mount has plastic on the inside of the tank. Less likely to have unwanted metals in the tank!


I am not having a problem with flashing lights. Everything is working perfectly!

A few days in to the first week, and I am enjoying the lights. Coral and fish colors look great! I did increase the intensity to max out at 80% from 60%, and will monitor coral. I am waiting on the par meter from my local club, to really get them dialed in.

So far I am pleased and look forward to more updates.

I just got mine installed- the whites were WAY too powerful for me. On daylight setting I have them at 10% lol.

Wow! I like to have a little more white during the day. Probably similar to a 14k bulb. After the first month I may stick these in my Aquaticlife fixture instead of the Ocean Revive. I am loving the led t5 combo.

I just posted my initial review which has the light program- my mistake, whites up to 25%

Really nice updates. I win today the Christmas Eve Giveaway. I'm very excited to place them in my 90gal tank since the actual lights don't support corals. I will do also a review and updates, basically from scratch, even the tanks it's been up and running for 1 1/2 years.
Merry Christmas guys and Happy Reefing

Thank's a lot. Cool, I'm following to learn everything in order to succed with my DT, I will do a review with updates as well. I think that this is the less we could to help the company to hit the american market with the right foot. As far as I been reading, I like what I see. Some minors hecups here and there, I dont see those are mayor problems, but I think they are taking notes. As a former sales and marketing director, I think they will recopylate enough data from our spectations to hit hard in this competitive market. IMHO.

You will need 2 or 3 for your 90 gallon tank.

Week one video. Everything looks happy. Not seeing as much polyp extension as I had previously, though I am not sure if this is due to the change in lighting or not.

Not seeing as much polyp extension, will it be because the luminaires used today are different from the previous ones, and the light intensity and spectrum have changed?

Finally got the par meter in and took some readings today.

Here are my current settings.


Readings were taken at my max set intensity at 1800.


These have been excellent so far and seem to have a decent spread over the whole tank. Coral seems to be happy, but I will let you see that for yourself. Ignore my pre frag swap ugliness.

A full tank shot and some
top down pics!

Sorry I have been a little behind on my update for my thread.

Everything is looking wonderful. I am starting to get some colors that I have not seen in a few corals. Everything is happy and healthy. I am still not seeing the polyp extension that I use to with my Ocean Revives, but that could be due to the spectrum change. I notice the polyps are out more at night now than before. Regardless, everything is looking wonderful. I cut a few frags and have been growing them on the frag rack, and these seem to be doing great as well.

Here are some new pics. Enjoy!

That is fantastic news!! I am really looking forward to any color morphs you get.
What is your light setup as far as percentages of each channel on a daily basis? I ask this because all this information is going into a special database I am making.
Thanks,
Matt

I run Radions (sorry @noopsyche !) and most people's settings are way too blue for me. I understand why they do it.. But you know what? I boosted my White/WarmWhite/Green/Red from the tried and true 24% (AB+ programming) to 35%. My corals LOVE IT. These are the missing spectrums that everybody looks over, and they are absolutely critical to coral health and growth.

Yeah, things won't look as colorful at 14K with LED's, but you don't need to run them like that all day.

I have a 14 hour photo period... 1 hour ramp up, 7 hours peak (lots of white/red/green) and then a very slow 5 hour all blue/UV ramp down.

This not only gives the corals everything they need and want, but a nice slow 5 hour ramp down in just blues gives you all the time you could want to see things pop.

I agree with this. I plan on using a little more of the white red and green. I have been altering the spectrum slightly to achieve a good balance.

Is there a video in the works for programming the light? I get to the transmit, but it does nothing

Soon I hope :) I have replied to various people wanting to do custom videos on the controller. Either way we shall make one soon as this would help solve a lot of issues.
It sometimes takes a few tries after the transmit to get the light to read it but once it reads the signal it is easy peasy.
