This part really doesnt get enough recognition in the hobby imo. A lot of people who run low tech are looking over at the CO2 injected "pastures" and thinking "oh, how green it looks, I wish I had that".I'm also really enjoying the simplicity of this setup. Just a light, heater and small hang on the back filter. No pipework, no CO2, no elaborate dosing machines - just a cute little tank.
Thanks very much!Beautiful little tank 😃
Id love to know how you get on with the Vallisneria, theres so much conflicting advice out there on whether or not it does ok in soft water.
It's true. With a bit more thought and preparation you can absolutely make a beautiful low energy tank that rivals any high energy setup.This part really doesnt get enough recognition in the hobby imo.
This.I find myself spending a lot of time sitting with it, just because of the serenity. With the high tech tank when I try to relax with it, theres always "oh I should clean that, or oh I need to fix this". So yeah heres a letter of recommendation for the many qualities of low tech.
I can't tell if I'm overly accustomed to the coolness of Chihiros lights or these lights are overly warm. It's even changed the way my blue wall looks! Are they all like this? Or does the colour temperature vary by model?
It says that it's using 30 white LED and 30 RGB which is quite a high white ratio, which explains it. Doesn't say whether it's warm or cool though.It’s been my experience that an overly yellow cast is always a feature of lights using white LED’s, some worse than others depending on how many warm white LED’s they have vs cool white.
