for now I do not see negative effect also and visiting people said that Setosa, Birdnest and another SPS are growing like crazyYes, it was a gamble on the Mandarin, especially when I had the sixline wrasse harrasing him for years. Now the sixline's gone, Mandarin's been happily roaming around looking for prey all around the aquarium and he looks good.
I think LEDs killing SPS is over exaggerated. As I said before, I will compare my T5 vs new LED 6 months after (5 months to go now). At least for now, there's no negative signs from any of the SPS corals I have.
Thanks Alex! I'm happy with the change so far. Overall, the performance is satisfactory, up to my expectations. I wonder if the fat acro is getting too much light, I may lower the intensity by 20% and keep it there for a while.Yuri overall your tanks looks beautiful I like how your colonies shape the reef, are you happy so far with the change?
I know is very hard to judge from a picture vs seeing the tank in person I hope I can come to visit one day no t too far away
In short, there's no adverse effect on the lighting change (good or bad) - most SPS continues to do well under LED, except one - fat yellow acro - which is still alive but mostly browned out (top left of the FTS).so, after two months. how's the SPS doing now with refugium cleaned and stuff.
I must say I wasn't impressed in the beginning, but it seems to be doing the job now. It was very tricky to get it dialed in, and my water level was too high for it. Now, it generates consistent skimmate (still rather wet skimmates but I don't want to fiddle with it any more).I would be interested in the performance you get from the PLS-100. I was running that on a 60 gallon system with a heavy load and I have to say I was not impressed at all. It may be just the load was too much for it.
Got two RW-8s, wirelessly linked to each other. While I can't say each are as powerful as MP40s, overall this product is a good value for money. I wasn't able to utilize all the fancy features of MP40, and the Jebao units provide just enough features that work, and it's very quiet compared to MP40s. Guess this MP40 will head to classified section soon.Tank looks great Yuri, I love the idea of the container to trap the bubbles I might copy that from you......
In regards to the MP40 wet side I was in the same situation 2 weeks ago someone gave me 2 mp40s with not wet part and I was trying to decide if to buy the wet part or try the jebo...ummm let me tell you Im loving this Jebo powerbeads they are powerful, small and easy to use plus you then can communicate wireless to work together......I would highly recommend you to try them out,,ohhh and not even comment about the price you can get 3 jebos with what you get just 1 mp40
The growth is definitely there, and colors from most SPS are good, so overall I'm happy with it so far. Before purchasing this fixture, I read so many stories about LEDs and SPS corals, and I was a little concerned too even thoughI can see the growth & changes in corals from comparing the two photos. that's awesome. Nice bubble trap by the way.
