New CADE 1200-1 planted and 3ft cichlid

Hi guys

Just bought a CADE 1200-1 and spent the day setting it up (heavy and hard work). Couple of pics of me and my gf setting up.

Hi mate

Thanks for the nice comments. I have the 360WE so im not sure if my advice therefore would be suitable but so far they've been amazing. Only criticism is that they don't dim below 13%. Perception of brightness is an interesting subject so it seems like it goes from bright (albeit 13%) to dark. It would be nice if it went right down.

Other than that, don't waste money on the kessil branded 'stereo' patch cables because any cheap one will work - get something 1.5 m or longer.

I think you'll be right with 2 lamps.

Yeah ok, wasn't aware of that, it did say China on the stand box. Nothing on the aquarium.

Nice start, any reason you went with 3 rather than 2?

3 kessils? Well my view is the extra depth and coverage necessitated it to be honest. Glad I did, im running a lot of CO2 and nutrients and its definitely balanced now.
