Good morning becks,
Just in the process of slowly removing stems to let the crypts grow through so tank looking a bit shoddy but I'll post this photo just to show you that you can add a bit of colour with the a360x.
There aren't any fish tanks on there, it's an international crypt forum populated with collectors and the odd expert, predominantly growing rare crypts terrestrially. You can easily leave the group if you have no joy.
It appears to me that you are probably already more of an authority on this subject than most and no doubt have already trawled the www for information, but one longshot is to maybe ask the same question on a Facebook group, if you haven't already, that I lurk on Facebook Groups...
I'm running a single a360x Tuna Sun and I'd disagree with all of the above. With the amber and red LEDs I've never had a tank looking so vibrant compared to Twinstar, before that TMC and again before that 4x different T5s in a single unit.
However for me there is a major drawback...
Did you get round to building/using this with success, if so, on what size aquarium (mine's 90x55x53h)?
I'm using a AM 1000 and it's not cutting it for me, having to use an inline diffuser in tandem to achieve targets, tried with original bio balls, empty and now Siporax.
If you did...
The tank appears in the last two photographs to be awfully high from the floor, can you not screw all of the feet all the way in, and then just screw out a couple of millimeters the appropriate feet to bring the tank level with equal pressure on all the feet, if this makes sense?
I'm remineralising RO with Calcium Chloride, Calcium Sulphate, Magnesium Sulphate and Potassium Carbonate to dGH5 & dKH1.
Do you think I would be better off deducting the amount of Mag & Pot from EI fert dosing or just treat it as a separate entity?
Many thanks for your time!
Could anyone help make a positive ID on this algae please, I've tried to compare it with lots of photos on here and elsewhere including James 'Planted Tank' Algae Identifier and still can't tell if it's Staghorn, Hair, Thread or what?
I've just noticed a couple of tufts have popped up...
Jewel lido 70 x 60 x 50cm, 200l.
2 x 600 Ultima growbeam on 50% for 5 hours/day.
1200 XLT filter.
2000 compact+ running a Sera Flore 1000 reactor.
Drop checker 4 degree KH water = yellow.
3 Bags of Eco complete and 1 bag of Seachem fluorite black.
I've set up 7 or 8 aquariums...
