    hydor koralia nano
    hailia 6530 return

    Lighting: 3 days a week i use 250 w MH/t5 combo and the other 4 days vertex LED

    i want to go with full LED on my system but i still need one more unit. while im saving up to get another one i thought i might as well play around and see what difference the two types of lighting makes

    Might be to get into another shell, or just to shed.

    Hi Zuna

    Can you please post extra pics on your new Orphek, I very keen to see it over the tank. Can you tell us a bit more about the unit? Is it the PR or Nilus?
