Unfortunately a fishless tank wont likely qualify unless my cycle decides to finish soon

But good luck everyone! What a great opportunity!

Heres a crappy video of the lights in action (taken with old iphone so cant capture a lot of the great colors)

And heres a photo of the tank in my favorite setting, Dawn/Dusk.


Daytime Photo


Also the light brings out great colors in the fish especially the blue! Even on my Angels it makes brings out the Bluish/Greenish tint that I havnt seen before.

Does my link to the journal count? Or do I need to submit a "final picture" for judging?

Reminds me of a divers bell, im guessing its to give "dry" land for tge crab in an aquerium, pretty ingenious, would never have thought of that

I've already posted in the club thread, but here is my entry photo here.

When I learned of the Sat+, I knew it was my "dream light". It was the light I would have built for myself given the materials and the know how. Add to that its affordability, and buying this light was a no brainier.

My plants that merely lived under a t8 have thrived under the Sat+. This was designed as a low light, low tech tank so I know that plant choice was part of it, but even low light will not do well without a good light.

This a a 29 gal tank. My substrate is black sand with root tabs. I have 6 peppered corys, 7 pristella tetras and 3 otos. My ruffle sword is huge. When the description said 18 in leaves, I didn't know they would be this huge. My tank is 18 in deep. I still love the plant. Even with the leaves bending over it is an awesome plant.

love the colors these lights render, ive sinced re purposed my light to a new tank that will focus on shrimp, ive never seen pfr's look so red under an led before!The only thing that comes close is multiple banks of various t5 light spektrums. With a ramp timer these lights would be perfect, can't wait to see what the 'planted tank' version will be like.

This is my 30 gallon crypt/anubias tank. It has been under a Sat+ for about a month now. I love the adjustability of this light. They work great for low/medium light plants. If a Plant Sat+ comes out, I might have to start another tank just to grow high light plants under a Sat+ I just got a Sat+ for my 10 gallon PFRS tank too. I'll get a pic of that one posted soon. Couldn't be happier with the Sat+... unless it had a ramp timer pro to synchronize a 24hr light cycle on both tanks.
