Rehypes 39 Gallon Cadlight Signature

So heres my 34 gallon i broke down a year or so ago.




Since i finally moved I decided to do another. I wanted to do this one bigger and better as well as a couple of surprises.So i ordered a 39 gallon from my buddy eddie over at cadlights. So i wait a few days and finally my tank arrives. But to my horror ups did this my tank <_< :angry:

Needless to say i was really ****ed but eddie told me not to worry about it he would send another tank. But i thought about it and decided it wasnt worth the risk of ups destroying another perfectly good tank. So i decided to go to Brooklyn and pick the tank up myself. I got a chance to finally meet eddie in person( great guy btw) and picked up my tank(he even helped me get it into my car) hows that for customer service!! And to top it all off eddie refunded me the shipping charges on the tank. So now you have a pretty good idea how awesome cadlight service is.Please dont hesistate to buy a tank from eddie...hes really one of a kind.

So im just about ready to set my tank up but on my way to work i get hit by a tractor trailer(see pics) and separate my shoulder pretty badly.



So a few weeks go by and i just cant take it and even though it hurts like heck i managed to get my tank together. So enough talking heres the tank this time with leds... I know its empty im going to order my rock and stuff on monday

Yes it is. I also have a tunze osmolator and a reefkeeper lite. Although i do think i may sell the reefkeeper lite and pickup a ghl profilux. Id like to have more control over the led fixture. I ordered a hanging kit which i should have by friday. And my LR should be here on wednesday.ill be sure to update with some more pics after i finish the aquascape.

So i finally got around to hanging the leds. I bought a sulight hanging kit and personally think its the best. It sooo easy to adjust the height when you need to mess around inside the tank.So heres some pics with the lights on and off

Thanks alot Vegita. So my GHl profilux controller came in a few days along with my doser. I got a wickedly good deal on the entire package which includes the



Profilux II Plus Controller
6 Outlet powerbar
Temp probe
PH probe
3 pump dosing unit


One of the best things about the profilux controller is the ability to utilize the full potential of my aquaillumination led sytem. The standard controller that comes with the led system is very limited.But with the profilux you get to unleash its true potential. Thanks alot to Scott cerreta for showing in detail how to get the best of the AI/GHl marriage.

So i picked up some new additions this weekend. A helfrich firefish and an allens damsel. The allens damsel has to be the prettiest damsel ive ever seen and is the most peaceful of the damsels. He gets along great with the helfrich although my jawfish was pretty ****ed about his arrival. They seem to be getting along better now

Well here a quick vid i took of them yesterday
