The lights are up!

Posted 05/15/2011 at 03:47 PM by Rotknee

Got the light hung a few days ago. The process was uneventful. The last time I hung the lights I had to use 4" screws to secure the lights to the stud. This time I used EZ Ancor Drywall Anchors to secure the lights to 3/4" drywall.

Here is how the lights were hung for my old 120G tank. "The BEFORE pic" Note these lights were hanging from a 39" rail.

Ok here we go the rest of the guide

So before we can even start talking about setting up dose rates and anything else we need to program the doser. (if you are reading this on the FM forum, I hope this info helps you also)

For slave dosers with the profiLux

This is where the profiLux shines above all other controllers, as you know GHL make a slave doser that works in unison with the controller, this gives the unique feature that you can dose in controlled...

Here's the info I got off the manual and I think this is one of the few sections that I find useful.

Hopefully, this is helpful.

Mounting hardware

Posted 05/03/2011 at 12:21 AM by Rotknee
Updated 05/03/2011 at 12:27 AM by Rotknee

I removed the plywood shelf and will be mounting my main hardware to it. I will obviously be using Vortech powerheads to move water around the tank. I have two now and seriously considering a third powerhead for the right side of the tank. The acrylic structure you see in the pic was designed and built to hold my Profilux controller and dosing units. The space in between the battery backup unit and shelf will fit my Profilux wave controller perfectly. Not 100% sure I will mount it there yet? ...

Dwarf angels are [I]all[/I] grazers and they spend their day swimming in and out of the rocks. Angels need less open swimming space in your tank and more loosely stacked rock replete with large spaces to swim through and to hide in. Having caves, keeping the rock off the back glass and making separate bommies are all ideal. A tank with few rocks is inappropriate and likely...
