How to mount reefbreeders to AI arms - use a drill press to enlarge the opening slightly, remove the wire from hanging kit, use hanging kit nut with loc-tite through hydra 52 mount

Nice. Are those t5 actinics in the 5th pic? Who built the tank?

Where do you get your shrooms? I need to add a few myself.

ATI Blue Plus T5
Glasscages - it’s my 3rd tank from them
Shrooms are from all over. I have quite a handful of them. Funny enough my wwc Sunkist and CB Orange Bubble Bounce are identical. Funny how stuff gets renamed so often

Absolutely gorgeous!

So what size Reef Breeders do you have? Looking like 2x 16" and a 24"? I assume you like the coverage?

You nailed it. Coverage is decent but if I were an sps guy I’d need another row of T5 along the back. I may still add some later but for now it’s fine for my LPS and zoa/shroom dominant tank. It wouldn’t be even close to sufficient without the t5. Id need another row of RBs minimum.

Blues max at 60 most the day, others 25-30ish and below
Very little white led maybe 5% if I recall correctly. The t5 mixes with the LED well enough that it’s not overly blue but definitely in the 20k+ range mid day.

What camera and lens do you use?
Sony a33
Sony 30mm 2.8 SAM lens

And because pics are what everyone comes for here’s an iPhone pic of a few growing in the box

Love it! Never thought I was a big fan of shrooms till I saw JB's, deadpools and kryptonites all sitting nicely in boxes alongside each other and I've fallen completely in love haha
Eclectus, candy crush and purple monsters are on the dream list! haha

I still need a Deadpool but the purple monsters are just too far out of my paygrade lol. My candy crush is pretty weak too with just one streak of green still. Maybe the babies will be better.. time will tell

I was just blown away by them lol. PM's are well out of my paygrade too but a man can dream! hahaha Hopefully the babies give you some beauty then! They're a stupidly impressive shroom so I'll keep my fingers crossed for you!
 

Do you have a iPad or similar type screen mounted somewhere near your tank for control or display?
