  1. Reef Pearls Tested / Review

    Okey guys, Dorry Pets in PTA has asked me to test and review a new product that is available in South Africa called Reef Pearls. This product has been used by many reefers abroad, but here we have no known knowledge of it. Dorry Pets' reasoning for allowing me to test the food, is that I have a dedicated NPS tank, and how better to test food than on corals that requires food as a sole form of nutrition. Other photosynthetic coral would open up with other factors and the test may not be as...
  2. Aqua-Medic OceanProp 15000lph review

    Aqua-Medic OceanProp 15000lph review Ok so i just recieved 2 oceanprop 15000lph pumps to play with and all i can say is WOW!!! They are super powerful and exceptionally silent for the size, the suction cup mounting bracket attaches nicley and the pump is well balanced. pre-programmed wave functions from a straight 5000 and 15000lph consistent flow to swapping from the 5000-15000lph on various wave sequences it also sports a night time mode where it shuts the pumps flow down to its lowest...

  4. Tunze Hydrofoamer 9420.040

    Introduction Well time for another review. I remember a few years ago when skimmers were all the rage with the launching of new innovative ideas. The arguments then were concentrated around contact time, amount of air being sucked up, how fine the bubbles were, etc. Anyway one of the top end skimmers that became available to us here in SA was the Bubble Master with its thread wheel Sicce pumps, man what a skimmer. Now being a skimmer addict I had to have one. Unfortunately the down fall of...
  5. LED's explained + review

    Okey, I must just note that I wrote an entire 30 minutes on this thread, then got the "page can not be displayd" error when I clicked on submit... Also, I have just learned that my wife thought it will to put an Opel badge onto the back of another car... :( So, with that wind out of my sails, I will just write a much shorter version of what I was trying to say;) Alot of unanswered questions are making the rounds on MASA about whether LED's are better or even just close the the likes of...

  7. Tunze 6125 Stream Review

    Introduction When a new pump is released to the reef keeping community few will create as much stir world wide as a new model Tunze stream. When visiting any board or talking to any reef keeper, the one thing that is synonymous with the Tunze brand is Quality. My History with Tunze Well my experience with Tunze was off to a rocky start. A bit of back ground here for those that don’t know – I had always heard about and seen Tunze pumps in action and had always been told about the quality...
  8. Polario ML22 - 22000lph flow pump review

    Introduction The Polario has been awaited for years now as a cheaper option for big flow with an included controller. It's been in development and testing by years from Taam, the same guys who've made the extremely popular Seio range. Seio pumps generally were always mounted "Tunze style" ie. horizontally with the wide outlet providing horizontal flow and without the "protector" piece they come with. The newer Seio Prop pumps now come basically designed better for how everyone was already...
  9. T8 Striplight 336 LED 220V 15W

    My first impression was that this couldn’t be good, with this cheap ass packaging with day written on the box in pen. Then I remembered that Tunze also gets packaged in cheap packaging and realized I shouldnt judge a book by its cover. So I opened the box and was pleasantly surprised by its neat appearance. Incased in a plastic T8 Tube were these 3 rows of LEDS. 336 LEDS spread over 1.2m can only bring interesting results. The guys at the store said I need to connect it directly to a...
