@leslie hempel .Is this the difference between the old and new orpheks or is it just your camera?

I still have these lights running at an aclimation setting as they are very intense lights being 5w duel chip LED.

I will play with ramping them up to a personalised setting over the weekend but the lights are very crisp and have a variety of different coloured diodes compared to the older units.

1st pic is of new units over tank.
2nd pic is of older unit

Started upping my light spectrum on the orphek, put them on a "coral growth mode" from "slow acclimitization" I had phenomenal success with this setting in the past, I can't wait to see what the result will be with the new diode layout.

THanks for the support Les, only a pleasure sourcing special fish and see them thrive in captive systems by people who are passionate. Well done on a great system.

Healthy quality livestock is of paramount importance for us.

Hi Less, tank is starting to come along nicely, how is the new flow pumps doing? Can only see one in the tank? When can you do us a complete video of the entire setup, showing the complete setup from both tanks from the front all the way to the sump room / Fish room? :cheers2:

Hey bud I have 3 pumps running

2 x slim ~ 8 full 15000lph ea (would like to have 4 ultimatley)
1 x slim ~ 7 full 10000lph (would like to remove and put in nano)

Been putting them through their paces propperly. Removed all Tunzes so far so good.

Small bit of Cyano on sand bed but I've left it. It's to be expected after using second hand aragonite.

Added 2 x sand sifting stars. Plan on upping cuc aswell.
