    Hi I cant seem to find the moon cycle in Ecosmart config utility.
    Ecosmart live connection manager does not seem to work. I can see the moon cycle in the latter but find the online software is very buggy.

    Any one else finding the same problem or is it just me,

    Ok finally got the moon cycle to work with the online software. Anny suggestions what the power setting in night mode should be to simulate moon light. Also what colour of leds is recommended.

    Thats actually a damn good question.....
    Really, especially when we add a why to the what ?
    But I'll leave that to the smart people to answer.

    You're up late Ivan. :D Ok enough derailment. I don't use moon cycles. I find them completely out of sync with the type of light the moon actually emits. I have read however, that it sets spawning into gear for many species both invertebrates, corals and fish. I have also seen that if one has carpet anemones, moonlight is a great way to TRY keep your fish "safe."
