After quoting the price we have to start from it to understand how this system can be cheap. Seneye Reef is sold to the public at 133 € (albeit in Italy). But now let’s start our complete review.
The reactor was premiered at Zoomark of 2011, and even then we had hit very well for the engineering solutions adopted. Especially we liked very much the fact that we should not use any sponge for its operation.
The Teco-Chill is a complete system to lower the temperature in aquarium, developed by italian company Teco, and on the market since last summer. On DaniReef.com we have had a world premiere, we made a video explaining the installation and use, and after a whole summer full of tests and trials we are here for a complete and thorough review.
The Teco gave me the version with 2 fans that think the more balanced and less invasive for an aquarium like mine measuring 130x60x50(h) cm.
When EcoTech Marine presented the new Vortech MP40 to the aquarium market, a new era began. This product was very nice and soon acquired a lot of interest. It quickly became the “king” of the pumps even before it started functioning. The pump has an external part which incorporates the motor of the pump, this finally crates a pump that almost not noticeable in the tank. At those times it was something incredible.
And today? After many years that the pump has been released on the market, no one has had the courage or the patents in order to develop something similar to it. So up to now it remains the only external magnetic drive pump available in the aquarium market. Still today it remains a dream for many aquarium hobbyists.
In this article of the new suspended led lighting Elos AquaTop 60, I will describe my feelings about the technical specs and manifacturing of this product. Later, through a dedicated set-up, I’ll publish the response of the LEDs on certain aquatic plant species. Elos once again affirm itself on the Italian market as competitive company that continually offers to his fans over the world cutting-edge products with unchallenged design.
The Tunze Stream Turbelle 6105 can be considered as the main product of the lineup of the Tunze pumps. This is because they can be used in aquariums from 300 to 400 liters, which are the ones most advance aquarist chose to use today. These are those aquariums that are larger than a nanoreef but smaller than a 500.
In this way they can still provide a decent catchment area, especially if we consider that 120cm aquariums of length are the ones which have the best ratio among quality/price/performance for keeping sps corals, which is reason why aquarist buy these pumps.
Thanks to the kindness of Teco, I have in my home right now the first E-Chill intended for consumers, who have followed me live on Facebook was able to comment live preview of my first photos put online, but now we are here with a great video explaining the installation of E-Chill well as its setting. As usual, it’s worth seeing the video in high resolution.
You can watch live how versatile is and how simple is to put it on your tank.
Over the next few days then I intend to do all the necessary measurements, especially consumption, since they are declared only 14 watts for 150 mc/h, and noise, and to put it in direct comparison with tangential fan, and maybe with the normal cooling fans that are usually used in the aquarium, and of course all my usual comments… continue to follow us…
The calcium reactor LGMAquari LGr701 SP is the third reactor in a row that I’ve tried, thanks to the kindness of Geppy and Emanuela, owners of LGMAquari, who made a copy available to me to do a very thorough test.
It’s been 4 months since I installed the reactor into my tank, and now I can finally make a very thorough review.
For my next trip to Egypt I’ll find myself in a position to choose which lens bring with me to fully complement the two other lenses that I have just decided to bring and are untouchable, the Tokina 12-24 f4 for landscapes and the Nikon 70-200 f2, 8 VR to make shots to my daughters and photos at night.
So I also got the ball to finally decide which of the two middle zoom in my possession was in fact the best. After all, I was interested to cover between 24 from Tokina and 70 from Nikon. The main choice fell initially on the 28-105, but then reflecting about, and considering that the difference between the two is only 100 grams, I thought I could also look at the 18-200 which would have also the VR, the Nikon’s optical stabilizer, not essential but certainly useful. Basically, any lens I’ll bring with me, I’ll use it in the range of focal lengths between 24 and 70 approximately.
The Nikon Nikkor 28-105 AF-D f3,5-4,5 was a good medium zoom a few years ago, with excellent macro capability, and it’s still possible to find it, used, at very low prices, while the Nikon Nikkor AF-S DX VR 18-200 f3.5-5, 6 ED IF is the classic all-rounder for the DX sensor, which, compared to 28-105 begins from 18 and comes to 200 and is stabilized.
So it all begins from my need and that I wanted to extend to you all.
