The project goes on: live rocks
I think you could want to pass the mouse over the image of the live rocks if you want to see the play of light offered by LEDs (and if you have firefox).
Yes the lighting system isn’t ready, because a part of it, one of the HQi, has been serving the other tank in the attic, feature actually quite comfortable in these cases.
Apart from these pictures, I preferred to turn off the LEDs to not modify the colors.
As I have said the rock is very different from what we usually see in the tanks, it is a bit ‘of time the thought seems to have changed, leading us to set up more tanks empty, I perhaps I wanted to exaggerate, coming to use only 25 kilograms of rocks into a tank of size 130x60x50h, 390 liters.
For the first setting I used live sand, especially to speed up the cycling because my fishes are spending their holiday in my attic.
The tank was set up Saturday, and three days later, on Tuesday, the values measured with brand new test kits measured:
I must say an excellent result, which makes me think of the good idea to have begun with the live sand, for your information I used Ocean Direct Original Grade della Carib Sea
The skimmer does not have anything foam, and Tuesday night I entered the first hermit, and I assume that soon I will insert a few fish to see how the new tank behaves biologically.
A stereoscopic view of the rock
Finally still pictures with and without LED, especially for those who failed to see the application in the first picture
I only have one indecision on the positioning of the movement pump. I am not very sure to use the Stream, it most likely will use the Vortech MP-40 in the same position of the stream that you see in the picture. But I would bring it closer to the overflow, what do you think? Too close to the rock in that case? Better the Tunze slightly oriented as now?
And, as always, all pictures taken:
