Started Feb 18, 2013 0 Replies

Here is a cool floor lamp for up to 5 LED spot lights. Can run 2, 3 or all 5 at once: 1 click turns on 2 bulbs, 2 clicks turns on 3 bulbs, and 3 clicks turns on all 5. A great solution for nano…Continue

Thoughts on LED Lighting and UV Light.

About My Tank
I have a “box of rocks” ~250lbs I saved from a 90 gallon reef tank of 15 years breakdown. I was/am keeping them because they are the single most costly item on a new setup in the near future. I was lighting the tank (~50 long shallow frag bed type tank) with T5′s across. Some softies started to reappear from the live rocks, mostly Yuma Riccordia, disc mushrooms, GSP and such. But when I saw a frag of my old magnificent pink birdnest, I needed to get some better lighting, as I think I want to grow it again.
I picked up the 7-LED model to spot just the frag, not caring much about lighting for the rocks and softies.
These are really great because for one thing you just screw the into an ordinary light socket for a PAR 38 LED Spot! I have used (and still do), both the 7 and the 12 LED AquaSunSpot Pendants, or spotlights from Aqua Medic.It looked OK, but i realized i really did need more light spread to cover all the tank (about 4′ long), so I got a 12-spot. HOLLY Molly! They are bight. They seem like much more than just a 90 LUM/Watt increase in light. What a beast of a spot! I would highly recommend this 12-spot version for anyone running Nano tank needing an inexpensive LED lighting solution short of getting one of the adjustable high tech modules out there. And for a Pico tank, the 7-spot would do. I can’t say enough about the 12-spot though. Kudos Aqua Medic USA!

Latest trend in reef tanks: The Aquarium ID app

Posted on October 30, 2013 at 1:00pm 0 Comments


Outstanding, the latest new release of the Aquarium I.D. app is now available! I’ll definitely be blogging about this one for sure very soon. Seriously, if you have not yet checked this app out, you really should. After all, it is free for the LITE version, and it is so much more than just an encyclopedia of beautiful pictures fish loaded with info on them. You…


If you can't afford a chiller this yeard, who can these days, a set of Cooling Fans sometimes can do nicely

Posted on July 15, 2013 at 5:41pm 1 Comment




Aqua Medic makes some really nice mountable multiple fan cooling units, in 2, 4 or 6 fan configurations. Someone once said “You can’t always get what you want (a chiller), but if you try some time, you’ll find, you get what you need(a cooling fan)”.

The complete construction is made from corrosion…


Outstanding Activated carbon

Posted on July 7, 2013 at 12:08am 0 Comments











Greetings Fellow Reefers,

I’d like to announce that we have recently acquired a new source for our Activated Carbon. It is form C.A.C. (Carbon Activated Corp.), all they do is Activated Carbon, and it is indeed superior to any source of activated carbon I have used in the past.

thank you. I had to learn the hard way that A one gallon tank is just good for nothing.  I'm still new to the hobby so I told myself to stay with freshwater fish until I know what I'm doing and get better income. I do plan to do saltwater at some point. I like corals.
