pianofish So I'm in love with buces and I just got my first three species, any updates on this tank??

Green_Flash Thank you! Those are very interesting; 90 PAR at the substrate is pretty high I think.
If I recall SPS corals like something in the 300 PAR range.

So using this one for plants is plenty bright.

I can only imagine what the 602 will be like, now that would pack some serious punch.

iscerus Aquascapes should be closed until the 26th at least (I think).

The Seneye REEF is a monitor that can send you email or text alerts, not really a controller (yet). However I can see it in the future being a controller as the company seems to really want to add new things.

Here are your readings:

Rim (4 in. below light)
Par 310
Lux 11540
Kelvin 5750

Cradle, below water surface (5 in. below light)
Par 171
Lux 6220
Kelvin 5750

Top of large rock (7 1/2 in. below light)
Par 141
Lux 5240
Kelvin 5675

Small rock (13 in. below light)
Par 95
Lux 3590
Kelvin 5675

Substrate (15 in below light)
Par 90
Lux 3310
Kelvin 5625

Green_Flash The controller? That is very nice!

Shame about the tools not arriving yet, they will be super nice I bet. Aquascapes is closed until Jojo comes back?
I was planning on going there today for more plants.

I actually had preordered my 601 from AFA online. Shipping was about $15. But I got some other stuff as well.

iscerus The Seneye REEF does PAR & LUX readings! ^.^ I'll get them for you tomorrow if I can.

Unfortunately my 20th Anniversary tools didn't come in today. So it looks like I'll have to wait for Jojo to return from vacation. Were you the one that purchased the other 601 from Aquascapes?

Green_Flash Oh that is really cool.

I am highly interested in the PAR readings for the AQUASKY 601 and 602.

Do you have the PAR meter in hand to do the 601?

iscerus Green_Flash, sorry about that, I didn't realize someone replied to the thread.

I ordered a few through a distributor of the farm. I believe the last list had 75 different variations of Buces and Aroids. It was brought in with a group order (the only way you can order from the distributor), which went through inspections. I've since acquired 4 new species for the holding tank and 1 more for Elysium.

I ordered 2 602's but the cali distributor for Aquascapes only had 601's and I picked up 1. I'm waiting for the 602 to come in and I'll buy that as well. So I'll take PAR and Lux readings for both when I have each in hand. The 601 now rests on Elysium. Hopefully my 20th anniversary ADA tools come in this week. Otherwise, I'll have to wait for Jojo to come back from his vacation.

I completed extensive pruning this past weekend. Hope I can get a picture up soon.

Btw, Elysium refers to the Elysian Fields. Where those judged worthy enjoy perfect happiness in the afterlife. Ultimately, I'd love to see multiple blooms, especially the yellows which most represent the golden flowers of lore. I thought it (the name) eye catching and well suited for a field of flowers.

Green_Flash Any updates?

What farm/store did you order them from? Did they come direct to your house in a pallet or something? Do you remember the name? I am having trouble finding buce for sale that is why, let alone all these types.

You ordered the single or twin light AQUASKY?

Also curious about the name of this journal?

iscerus Tank is currently going through it's algae phase. However, the tank has been deemed safe for fauna; after a scouting party of 2 CRS braved the wilderness for 4 days. I've moved in a small algae crew and will be picking up more shrimp in the future for the tank.

iscerus Gigant spathe, as requested by Manini

iscerus Posted this in the cell phone photography thread, but I thought people might get a kick out of a 3D side by side shot. Unfocus your eyes and let the images merge. This, as most of the current images in the thread, were taken by my EVO 3D. A couple are/will be taken with the Fujifilm JX580.

Video (if anyone cares)

iscerus Yes, these are in the same room as the stand is built to hold 8 Mini Ms and 2 60-Ps. I also just received my 20lb aluminum tank which will power the other 60-p and some of the Mini Ms. Elysium will have it's own dedicated 5lb tank of CO2.
10-05-2012 03:59 AM

That is going to be a site to see! Are these all in one dedicated room?
Pics are a must!
10-05-2012 03:55 AM
iscerus I have a 602 (actually 2) coming in for the 60p (I have 2). The 36cm AQUASKY are indeed for 6 Mini Ms (2 on order) that I have to start getting planted/stocked. So, lots to come!
10-05-2012 03:53 AM
Green_Flash Cool!

I have a couple questions, you bought 6 AQUASKY lights? I was wondering what are you going to use them for? You said they are the 36cm model correct? I thought those are for the Mini M.

The 60P is 60cm and they made a new larger AQUASKY for it called the 602.

Unless you are going to run them front to back, but in that case it still wouldn't work as the 60p is 30cm wide not 36cm. Also those you pictured are for 5mm thick glass, the 60p is 6mm thick.
