  1. Small update.
    T5s are working great, tank is cycled and I’m slowly adding fish. Plan is to add all my fish and let the tank settle out before I add corals.
    Also added a small aquarium fan to the canopy to help keep the air moving so mold and other unwanted stuff doesn’t build up :) it’s head silent and not too powerful. May pick up another one after I get my Kessils.
    Oh and there are tons of little critters in the tank. Happy with how it’s tiring out so far! :)
    The MP-10s were moved to the back wall. I did this mostly to clean up the sides of the tank. I had seeing the equipment and the flow is still really good. Very happy with the mp-10s 3361fcc96638237b7bf7f7029cbeae5f.jpgab80ee0df01ab3d2f51993e75ea570b8.jpg

  2. I mounted mine on the side of my tank with adhesive Velcro,  I didn't want to leave any permanent marks on the side of my stand as well, I wanted a low profile not sticking out much.

    Second this. I just use Velcro command strips.

  3. As the title says I’ve got some lights for sale. Both are in excellent condition and are great lights. Just decided to go a different direction after I fell in love with Kessil/T5.


    The radion was purchased in March of last year but was ran for only 6ish months at $25% intensity over my frag tank. $300 for it.


    The ATI Sunpower was purchased from Powderblue during one of his tank break downs. It comes with two Blue + and two actinic bulbs. Also has the hanging kit. Both bulbs have maybe 3 months of use on them.

    $225 for the unit.


    I’m planning to be at the meeting this weekend and can bring the lights with me. Otherwise local pick up is welcome. I’m just outside of Salem.


    Pm me with any questions.



  4. Wow!!! Doin' it justice man.  Exciting time, filling it up!

    Side note, I actually turned the back into the front haha. The side you used for the front had some scratches and the back was almost perfect so I did a 180 on the tank lol!

  5. Finished up the Canopy today. Soon I’ll add two vent fans to help cool the future LEDs and T5s.
    I installed the LET T5 retrofit kit and it’s awesome! Really nice quality and a decent price. Still more details to do on the stand/canopy so they aren’t so boring :)
