    i have been looking for an average joe soap's LNS tank with regular pics of its evolution and i think i have finally found one.....

    the colors of this tank are simply amazing, the growth is great....

    the thread is only 4 pages long and it really is worth the look if you are interested in this sort of system !

    Nice....again, pity those products are not freely available this side of the world.

    Will have to try and make a plan ;).

    If you mail Korallen Zucht you can get hold of a lady called Regina. They will DHL the products to SA. It's very expensive but they seem to be better than NeoZeo

    I'm not sure I understand the meaning of an LNS system? Please excuse my ignorance, but that tank is stunning!! What is the correlation between LNS and extreme lighting? If you see how he upgraded his lighting, it is insane! 18 T5's? That is mental.

    Also, this ZEOvit... Is it just a supplement you add to the water?

    unfortunately it is more than a little complicated

    LNS = Low nutrient system

    i think i should write a beginners article on this subject, as the infor out on the web is extremely complicated and there is no short summary available

    That would most certainly help. I'm starting a 600L reef tank and I am looking for ideas on what to do with the tank. This LNS system, I guess if done correctly, is stunning! I love those corals in the example tank. Those blues and greens are astounding.

    Hey dude. Northlands was the agents here in Durbz, they no longer stock the range/full range. Regina said they do retail aswell and it will not be a problem to ship to us.

    Cool, but northlands were only dealers. they are listed on the agents site as dealers as well as exotic (who also no longer stock KZ products, Adam told me "nobody buys the stuff cause its expensive")

    Im talking about the agents. these guys stock the dealers...Im sure they can bring in any product from KZ that you ask for :yeahdude:
