    here are some pictures of my office cube, im running them with maltons LEDs and all seems to be going great. Just done some tests and they are Ca 428ppm Mg 1320ppm and Kh 8,4
    I am totally loving this cube.

    What you guys think?

    Its a 150 lt cube running a boyu skimmer, sponges and live rock chamber all at the back. The malton leds are two strips white and two strips blue with a built in control panel and timers still trying to work out the fading and moon light ability. I have two pairs of clowns, a fire goby and blue eyed cardinals. Its been running for a month

    Laymen terms...:p 150L..equals how many in dimensions..:p..
    Is it those Tanks in Springfield Park?
    The light unit, can you give the name/make so I can google the spec's...:blush: MALTONS are all over so hopefully looking for LEDs wouldn't be such a Mission..
    2 different pairs of Clown could be a problem in that size...I think, I could be wrong..

    Yes its the one like northlands sell. Dimensions ill give to you when im at the office. The leds i've tried looking for them they are maltons lz 420 there is jack on the net about them but they are cool.
    My clowns are both hosting in my torch and bubble tip. They have been together over a month and seem happy.
    They look like two different species but not sure.
