Satellite+ Club: Showcase your Current Sat+ Tank! Links to journals & more!


Sat+ Club - Do you own a Sat+ or like to learn more about one? This is the place for you!
***DISCLAIMER***
This is strictly a 'fan club,' I don't work for Current-USA and this club is not in any way affiliated with Current-USA.***


Welcome to the Sat+ Club! ALL are welcome!




For those FW LED lovers, thought I'd start a thread to compile some eye-candy showcasing your Current-USA Satellite PLUS LED fixture on your tank! Call it a 'Fan Club' or whatever, thought it would be fun to launch this with more emphasis on FUN! I have thoroughly enjoyed my Sat+ (since starting this discussion thread --here--) and from what I'm reading out there, seems like a lot of you do too!

So let's see them! Don't be shy!!!

Join the Club!

In this club we encourage:
  • Shared experience with the Sat+ w/ tons of pictures (& YouTube video if you made one)!
  • Tip & Tricks for the novice to advance users
  • Links to journals utilizing this fixture
  • Open discussion with everything else pertaining to the Sat+ or Current-USA/Ecoxotic


*I'm not going to bore you with a full write-up of specs, so if you want to learn more, click the links below or the Current-USA site: here

Journals featuring a Sat+:

I'm currently planning a new build with my Sat+ fixtures... Hopefully I'll get that underway before the end of the year.

For now... here's my Sat+ on my 26g tank. And then for kicks, I wanted to see how it would look suspended over an ADA 60-F.





Two Sat+ lights on my new 60P.... It's been a month since planting. Amazing growth and lots of pearling! (Updated Pics 10/28/13)!
I should be getting around 72+ PAR. Let's see what that can do. I'm excited... these are awesome lights, no doubt!

Heres my journal show casing all my tanks, my 55 gallon tank which holds my most beautiful fishes uses the Current LED+ which makes all the colors on the fish pop like never before!
http://www.plantedtank.net/forums/sh...d.php?t=404649

Heres a video of the lights in action, crappy Iphone video so doesnt do the light fixture justice at all.

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

I have three of these fixtures and love them. Two are on 20g longs, one is on a 75g, all plants are doing fine.

Here a pic of my tank about a few weeks ago before I added more plants. I love the color and the shimmer

@KTern - That's a sweet looking piece of Manzanita DW you have there. I like that Anubias sp. Petite you added to it too. I think it would look cool if you added some nice stones around the base. Thanks for sharing!

Don't have a build, my pics are not good. But here is my 75g tank today:





all low light plants, only been a month, so far so good, new growth, slow, but decent.

Here's our family tank as of today, with the Freshwater + in Yellow High Light plant growth mode, and a custom deep blue in our memory bank, and our journal, which has the LED introduced around the middle!
