The poret is doing fine, no decrease in water flow so far. Every week when I change water the nitrate tested 5-10 ppm through. I wonder where it comes from. The Hakata PRL are from the official distributor in Hong Kong.
Yes I got them on eBay, you can find many sellers if you search E27 5630 bulb. I think currently 5630 is the brightest mini LED chip for bulb like this. I tested and think 1 bulb would produce med light for a 10 gallon tank. I am gonna change it to something slimmer in profile through cuz I only have 4 inches clearance above each tank.
Each bar is 20" and have more chips than the bulb. I will post an update when I receive them.
I have this excate same led strip, super easy to use, very low profile and I use 2 strips over a 10gal and get Med light easy... You can link them together also via the clips that are attached on each strip. I used an old 12v cell phone charger to power them.
MarinePure is supposed to contain the most sq ft of media for bacteria.
and slightly cheaper than Powerhouse.
Just thought I'd mention bio home which I think is made by power house ??? Is the freaken BOMBB!!!! Check them out and you'll see why I will
Never buy any gimmick "matrix" type product or anything else period. Neither will any other serious hobbyist!
