    Looking good! I've thought about a second radion on my 60 cube as well. It's tough to deal with the shadowing with LEDs.

    Thanks!

    At this point I'm hard up against a wall on whether to get another Radion, or a few SunBlaster T5 ballasts and have Jason build me a little floating hood. (I'm sure he'd prefer the latter. )

    Luckily, my ammonia is still around 20ppm and I have plenty of time to figure it out.

    The Darwins are the first to inhabit the 93gal cube. They're happily swimming around in the empty space. I'm sure they'd be much happier when the giant Sebae anemone is able to join them.

    Swapped out the Radion with an ATI Dimmable Sunpower 8x24W.

    I debated getting one of the ATI Hybrid fixtures, but at 24" and only (1)LED cluster, it just didn't seem logical. Thanks to Fritz, I'll probably get a ReefBrite LED strip to mount on the front of this fixture.

    So how's this beauty coming along? :poke:
    The next time I'm over that way I'll hit you up to see if you're around.

    Come on by, see how I've been treating your stand...

    Things are going pretty well on this little tank. Growth, color, all is doing great! Corals are growing enough to start dosing Ca/Alk. I'm supplementing the solutions with Fauna Marin Trace Elements 1-3. Dosing 15mL per day of both solutions.

    I just need more coral!!

    Here's some pics from a few week's ago.


    Added a ReefBrite Tech Blue LED strip to the ATI fixture. Now I can get that actinic pop and some shimmer. :)

    Some views from all sides. (Pretty bare looking, I definitely need to place some orders for more sticks).

    Thanks for the update.

    This was a tank from Aquarium Masters. (Non-low iron.) :)

    I believe the entire system is posted on Craigslist. :(
