Excellent. What do you think of the light?How is everyone's tank doing so far in the new year? We need some more informative conversations and competitive banter going on in this thread!
I'd be interested to know what everyone is using for lights on their tanks?
I'll start by saying that I use a ReefBreeders Photon V2 hung 13-14" above the water reaching a full intensity of 100% for channels 3,5,6, 40% for channel 4, and 50% each for channels 1 and 2. My frag is around 8" beneath the water line.
I've had the light over my main tank for around 6 years now, and It's grown every coral and clam like a champ. Also surprised by its longevity so far at 6 years. I like to mount mine a bit higher to mimic a more natural sunlight effect. Unfortunately, I can't hang it much higher than 14" because of light bleeding out over the tank, but that height seems to do the trick on a 24" high tank. I love it so much I bought two others: one for my clam and acro tank which is attached to my main system, and another for an upcoming frag build!Excellent. What do you think of the light?
This is impressive! And totally what I was hoping for in nominating this one.
Thank you! And absolutely! I feel like millepora hit that growth spurt once they get settled and happy, I had this sliver in my tank that exploded over about 1.5 yearsThis is impressive! And totally what I was hoping for in nominating this one.
thing about the raindrops, when you hit critical mass, it’s explosive. I predict we see some genuine colonies by the end of this one! Great stuff so far guys.
Man I wish I could reef like this......wowI’ve got my tank growing under a Phillips coral care gen2 and a quanta reef light bar for some pop, both mounted only about 5-6” above the water in the canopy. I’m a very strong believer that full spectrum is necessary for coral growth, coloration, and health, and I think the Phillips coral care does a great job providing that.
My tank is a 60 gallon cube with a Mac calcium reactor for dosing. I’m also running no water changes and the reef moonshiners method. Here’s a couple FTS
