I just set them to around 7200k for now, at midday. Will see how it goes.My wife says she likes the lights.
Have you found a good schedule?
Did you use the GHL mounting kit?
Yes, I was going to go with the soft white background originally but then got worried I was going to see distracting shadows from those support bars for the lights, plus other stuff I plan on running up the back of the tank. So settled on black for now. It's just a vinyl background so I could peel it off and try white next time if I want. Guess we'll see how it goes!I'm not an huge fan of the black background, but nice setup, curious about these lights.
LOL!!! Thanks... I think.Beautiful home and tank. Pisses me off.
ha, yeah... it's big. <that's what she said>tank looks great and looks huge. Cant wait to see if filled and planted,lots of work went into this cant wait.
Yep, i definitely may need more soil but will see how it goes. Planning on building up a hidden base of lava rock on the right where it's going to be really high to help stretch out the soil.(I suspect More Soil will be on the list - unless you’re planting very little area ... which doesn’t correspond with the lighting )
Filipe Oliveira’s advice - take your time collecting hardscape etc, then scape the tank, and wait again for next budget instalments for plants ... and then livestock
I was thinking of crushing the lava rock. Would that work? I don't know of any stone more porous looking than lava, outside of a filter media.Look for a porous stone similar in size to ADA Power Sand L for better flow/oxygenation/biological activity in that base
(I suppose ADG won’t have this any longer but they may have something comparable)
I had to look up "pouzolan" and then i had to translate from french to english. lolI use thights filled with pouzzolan to create slope under the soil; cheap and very effective.
Well send them an email with your story and photos of your tank (& link to this topic) and they may just send you some nice kitOh man, wouldn't you know it... the GHL Mitras are now on sale! Too bad I got mine months ago. lol
Oh well, heads up for anyone on the fence!
