Count me in! Just set this up Friday (8/30), very excited for it to fill in.







Viewable from both sides, this side is coming up the stairs into my apartment






Added a couple new photos, it's starting to fill in.

Sat + 55g

Here is a vid of my Sat+ on new new 55g my 7 year old daughter and I built together. Love the light, you can adjust the light so boesemani rainbow fish and dojo loaches glow its awesome, I have had 3 friends ask if its a salt water tank cause of there color!! I'm slowly going to turn this into a panted tank once I research a bit more on what this light will grow.

Sorry not the greatest quality vids

My tank blew up last week


This is how my "disaster" turned into a "blessing" when I replaced it with a 12G Long and dropped a Current USA LED+ on this bad boy!


Best part, I had a little over 2" clearance below the breakfast bar and the low profile of the LED+ is a GODSEND~~!



Few more pics







This lighting setup really shows how much HC Cuba died off during the great crash of last week. It makes the dying brown pop, but it also makes the living green pop even more. Can't wait to try this setting when everything grows back in again.


Love that there are 2 intensity for moonlights. Nice touch since I REALLY like the dimmer one.


Video going through some cycles. At about the 1:30 mark, a thunder just so happens to go off in sync with the lighting mode....SWEET JESUS!!!

Love this fixture so far, just got it in last night so havent had enough time to monkey around with it but so far Im impressed. Mine is on a 75 gallon which needs a good trimming and cleaning up of the plants so I doubt I'll be in the running at all but guess I'll take a shot at it. This light brings out the yellows and blues in my angels and the reds and greens of the plants, just makes all colors look brilliant!

Its called a crabitat a diving bell if you will for crabs and other air breathing critters, they can enter and exit at thier leisure comes in a few different sizes ataches to an air pump for contiuous fresh air at the bottom of your tank. my crabs love it, keeps them from climbing out to get air. I have 3 RCC and 5 Fidlers that all use it regularly and they can be found at www.crabhomes.com sorry for the delay in answering hope this helps

Here are my two Satellite + fixtures on my 70gal 24" tall paludarium. Unfortunately I didn't time everything quite right and I do not have all my plants/riparium planters in yet so the tank is looking a little bare. I have only had the plants (C. retrospiralis, Hygrophila corymbosa, some Taxiphyllum barbieri, and an unknown moss) in for a few days but they are already showing some new growth. I don't plan on injecting CO2, so I am only dosing in moderation. I am running one light fixture for about 9hrs and the other for about 7hrs. Both have a 2hr siesta in the middle of the day.

If you compare the last picture to the first two, you can see that the Hygrophila is already growing. There is also a little bit of guppy grass (Najas Guadalupensis) in the tank right now to help absorb excess nutrients until the rest of my plants arrive.
