Well I'm able to kill Aptasia quite effectively with my 500mw 532nm laser. So yes lol
This is intriguing, so many uses. My Aptasia area just starting to spread. I've had mixed success with peppermint shrimp, haven't been able to keep a copperbanded.
Ok I found a unit for $199 think I'm going to pull the trigger and go for it and do some video footage for proof of success or failed.
Also does it make a difference on the lasers Color?? Blue over Red over Green over Purple??
You want either blue or green. They are brighter and destroy anything photosynthetic to greater effect. I've never seen a red or violet used for this purpose so I'm guessing there's a reason. The power is more important.
Did u see my photos?
I tried doing video but the laser is so bright it was like trying to take a video of the sun.
Thanks Big Time! The I just purchased is Blue and will here in a week at Max. Thanks Again
When you get it, not sure which one you purchased, if it doesn't do the job don't panic. Depending on the diameter of the beam it could need to be focused into a tighter beam. You certainly have the power but you need a focused beam to make the kill... just FYI.
Hey can you link me to the one you purchased? Also did you by eye protection?
I've got four pairs if anyone would like one, no charge.
I would love a pair. I'll pay for the shipping just send me the needed info and ill set it up.
It may already be answered here, but would the laser damage an acrylic tank?
Yea I'll take one!
Yes, please share.
Got it and thanks I'm sure if you hadn't said that I'd believed it didn't work and would if turned into a light saber lol.
Sure thing it was from the 1st thread Survival Lasers.
Not at all. Acrylic, especially in tanks, is quite translucent. A laser won't have any visible/negligible effect... however on a molecular level it's likely to weaken the structure resulting in a small breach in acrylic over time. It's vital that the laser be aimed at the appropriate entrance angle in order to maintain your tanks structural integrity...
I'm joking. It'll do nothing to your tank
Hey Nate: When you come to get your frags, can you bring it with you and demonstrate? I can record it and post it on here.:bigsmile:
Sure you're welcome to try as I have but this is all you'll see...
Just FYI... they're coming tomorrow to take my A/C unit to their shop. I should have a fully functioning A/C by Tuesday or wed.
