For a shot at the Ramp timers, post to http://www.plantedtank.net/forums/sh...=1#post4218073

I just got a Sat+ in today for my 10 gallon PFRS tank. It's not my "show" tank by any means, but I'll still post a photo. It's spent 7 months under a 15W T8. I put the Sat+ on and WOW! So much brighter, better color spectrum, and better distribution of light because of the way the T8 was mounted on the tank vs how the Sat+ rests on the rim, no hood necessary.

10 gallon PFRS tank, now under a Sat+. I need to scrape some algae off the sides and wipe off the front glass, but you get the idea. Just a quick cell phone pic.



My two Sat+ tanks, side by side.

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

WOW!!! Now that's some serious eye-candy! Great work on that tank, zodduska! The colors really pop and good choice on the stones! I'm sure the RGB's help make the reddish hue on them just glow. What kind of stones are those anyway?

You should make a journal on this build so I can link to it! Thanks for sharing!

Thank you! I was a member here years ago but I had given up the hobby until I saw that this LED+ and tank combination, they just seem made for each other and I could no longer resist. The rock is petrified wood.

Edit: I'll make a journal soon!

That petrified wood is gorgeous! That's my first time seeing it. Where did you get it, if I may ask?

Anyway, I look forward to the journal... LMK! Oh, and WELCOME BACK to the hobby!

I cleared out some of the dwarf sag yesterday. I like having some open space again. I replanted the ludwigia on the left. The sand is clean except for pond snail shells that had been trapped under the dwarf sag. Hopefully I can get them on the next vac in a few days. The ruffle sword is sending up another leaf.

I took this because I was enjoying the dawn lighting so much. The pristellas schooled up nicely for me . It hard to capture in a photo, but they really shine silver under this light when they are swimming up front.

Thanks. I bought the petrified wood at Aquarium Adventure, at Petland spin off chain in Bolingbrook IL during a 50% off sale, I made sure to grab all the small pieces they had. It's pretty common and not outrageously expensive, if you can't find any locally I know it's sold on Ebay.

My brain kept reading drift wood. I finally got it. Petrified wood. No wonder it looks so cool. Beautiful tank.

Another fantastic looking 12L w/ a Sat+! Thanks for sharing! Now I see why zodduska named his thread "A Match Made in Heaven" -- the Sat+ looks perfect for a 12L. Now I want a 12L (must resist an impulse buy)! haha

I love this light, last night I made my first custom setting - a nice warm temp with the blue diode dialed down.. Really makes the green and reddish orange pop.

Thanks!

Just got my LED+ in. Extra awesome for me since I only have a 2 1/8" clearance for lights. So with the LED+, not only does the light fit, the sensor also fits with 3/4" clearance left.
