Hey Frank,
I started adding phyton git, increasing nitrogen, and water flow. Guess what, the cyano is 99.99% gone. Well now I have a bit of milky water tho. Any suggestion?

Thanks! I've decided to make a tank journal. Like an old fashion one, like on real paper! I have my specs, plan, maintenance plan, and filter media timeline. Along with a new sketch of what my goal is... I can post the sketch if you want.....

try cleaning your filter and pipes and then add some carbon and (seachem) purigen.
it did the trick any time my water got cloudy.

It's like a dirty magazine but for aquarium equipment. Yowza. That is one sleek fixture...looks even better than in the advertisement for it.

I very curious what you think about the AQUASKY, especially long term. I understand the look but I am a bit disappointed as it doesn't fit my personal style as good as the Solar series. I am thinking about biting the bullet on an ADA tank for my 30th birthday and space constraints mean a nano, unfortunately. 36 CM is about perfect for me and the AQUASKY is an option.

This thing is absolutely beautiful - and I've seen a lot I LED lights. So far this is the only one that does it right for the planted.



When I plugged it in, my roommate and I both went "owe, bright!" at the same time, immediately afterwords she goes: "whoa that's cool, is that that new light?"





This thing really is...very bright!

I actually don't like the way that looks. The heatsink part is nice, but the legs/housing just look silly to me. Still interested in how it turns out though.

I'd like it more if it had a way to be hung. I agree, the thick acrylic legs are distracting.

You can actually unattach the light and heat sink from the casing and mount it to something else. I'll show a picture later.

Basically the light & heat sink is separate from the acrylic stand.

Nice. A gooseneck mount would look awesome.
