    Guys, need some advice on lighting schedule for 1x Kessil A360WE on my 50g tank [1x Torch, 2x Zoas] for now. I don't have the controller yet, so don't worry about sunrise or sunset , as yet. Will buy it when it is released here in Australia. I'm sure before you have the controller (or APEX...

    Hello All, I was wondering if anyone could point in the right direction or if they have a good working digital lighting timer (if its not digital that is fine as well, just preferred) for multiple outputs. I'd like to put my lights on an LED timer with a dusk (blue's) mid day (whites & blues)...

    Hello out there. I'm a new reef tank guy. Been taking my time getting everything and just filled/ set up my new Biocube HQI. So far it's going well. Water is fairly clear, just tested the water and everything looks good. Not sure about the salinity since I just returned the crappy plastic...

    I'm programming my reef angel tank controller and I was just wondering what interval you have your wave maker set to? I currently have it setup to pulse every 5 seconds but that seems like way too much turning on/off.
  11. Skimmers & other filtration
    Hello, I'm still fairly new to reef keeping. My question is: Can I put the skimmer on the same timer as my lights? The problem is the pump running the skimmer is a little too loud at night to the point where I can still hear it in my bedroom down the hall. Turning that one off got rid of all...

    Hi, guys) I've got the Coralife day-night timer power center, but I don't have manual. I googled the manual but I guess I have the older version and there is no manuals online. If you have the same timer, could you scan or take a picture of the manual. My email is [email protected]

    I ordered a Aqua Medic SP 3000 for dosing Alk. I'd like to slow down the rate since I can only find digital timers that go down to the minute level (and not seconds). I was thinking of using a needle valve. Should I place the needle valve before or after the pump? I would think after the pump...

    So I just got back from a 5 day "vacation" from Germany, it was to visit my very sick Grandmother. That was probably her last Christmas :cry:. Anyway, I had a tanksitter come by to do top offs, food, etc. Everything was going fine but when I got home, I couldn't believe my eyes. The sand was...

    I'll be running 2 x 250 watt MH's and 2 x T5's for supplemental lighting on my 55g reef tank I'm setting up. How important is it for lights to be on at a certain time everyday? The reason I ask is sometimes I work late nights and my tank is in my bedroom. If I sat my timer to come on at say 7...
