    Default My Fluval Edge Project

    Started this back in October.

    Things are going quite well. Vortech MP10. I had to replace the stock halogen MR11 bulbs with some MR16 LEDs. I also have my old 18 watt PCs sitting on top. I plan to retrofit some more LEDs in the stock hood. I have some zoas, acroporas, caps, duncans, frogspawn, gonipora, red dragon, couple of peppermint shrimp, and an emerald crab.

    Looks real sharp, John! Those are really nice looking tanks, probably perfect for an office. I had a Nano cube in the office for years and loved it. That orange monti looks to be doing okay under the LEDs - that will be a good experiment for you to see how the SPS do in your tank.

    Nice meeting you the other day at the club meeting! Nice looking setup there.

    Wonder if those exotic stunner strips would work in that tank?

    Jim, can you send me a link for those strips? I'd like to check them out.

    Here are the ones I have been watching. They are coming out with some new ones for reef aquariums.

    They look similar to that one. If you're interested, I have one here you can try out. It seems to do a decent job lighting up my 29 biocube. I imagine it would do well over your fluval edge.

    Thanks for the encouragement. I love having this sit right next to me at work.

    Here is a full shot and one other picture. Sorry the pictures are a little blurry. These were taken with my iPhone.
