I do like the varied colour spectrums and adjustments you can make. Tis is one of the main reasons i went for these lights. it was the cheapest light available that had this capability. Storm mode is a great novelty, and cloud mode gives a great ambiance to the tank that's real enjoyable. Changes the whole mood of the tank. - virtually limitless colour and light intensity variations.

God luck if you get one, and be sure to tag me for the journal.

- if you're planning on buying one, what size tank are you planning to use it for?
I'm planning on using one over a 60x45x45cm and that's what I like to hear that they grow plants well

And compared to the aquaray panels the radios are actually cheaper haha well they are once you factor in mounting hardware and a controller for panels

Plus I like the fact you can program these from the computer and all that

I might go with a 60x60 x 55cm tank tho and I sure will link you when I start the tank up its a little way down the track ATM as I'm gunna be moving shortly

Haha - my bad, it does actually say NYC! Too many holiday beers for today I think.

Have you moved here for good or here on business?

I'm in sydney also - let me know if you need any plants. I'm trimming bi- weekly and throwing lots out. Happy to help out if you got a tank going here in Aus.

i can't do anything high tech since I wont be around to look after the tank, it's pretty much low tech and mostly self sustaining :O

I have plenty of moss if you need any. I'm not really sure what type, kind of found it in a bucket

where did you get UG from btw?

woah, is it just me, or did a couple of posts just vanish?
Anyway... I said that I cant do high maintainance plants... and asked if you needed any moss. since I rediscovered a bucket full of un ided moss.

Was also curious where you bought the UG from. lol

Did a 50% water change, and cut back a lot of the foliage. Man the Blyxia was so thick, and so much came out I took it all to the LFS and received a decent credit! See a few pics from my iPad afetr the trim -

I think the mediators had something to do with the post issue !

Cheers for the offer, but Im managing plants by way of trimming and cant see me adding any more lol.

UG I bought from a place called slippery little suckers, in Marrickville. But my experience in the shop was terrible, the owner was absolutely arogant and rude, and I would steer any one clear of that shop. - I may get 'mediated' myself for that comment, but hey...haha
