Speaking of Live Rocks isn’t easy. But today we want to focus on their treatment at the moment of the arrive in the shop, thanks also to help a friend of mine, who’s been in the sector for years (though he wanted to remain anonymous.
Let’s see how to set the skimmer. L’articolo in italiano su come regolare lo schiumatoio lo trovate cliccando qui.
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.
We had a preview of the new Elos System E-Vision we promptly tried, a beautiful and captivating system in its version with touch controls, but simple, versatile in its version just based on Elos Tempo and Elos LedDimmerBox.
For this first test we wanted to focus only on using the Elos Evision LedDimmerBox and the Elos Tempo and using them on Elos EliteXP Color so to better understand not only the dimming performance but also the power of mixing the various channels.
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…
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.
Finally my new project takes off. After the problem of my previous tank that after two years had almost completely unstuck (see here), I ordered a new tank and thanks to Alessandro Falco who lent me his aquarium to keep “on holiday” my adored fish, I managed at last to take off.
The choice of measures has been to prefer a tank that would give the idea of being large, so a very wide format, despite the height. So I confirmed the length of the front window of 130 cm, while I had to settle of a width of 60 cm, and a total height of 50 cm, which might give a more wide aquascape, this also because of the layout I have in mind and you’ll see soon.
