  1. Well wife did not take an interest in the Nano like I thought, so not going to bother trying to keep up two tanks, only built this setup for her. So time to sell/trade it to get some stuff for my big tank.16g BioCube LED1.0 Sicce Silent Return PumpIntank 3 chamber media basket upgradeJager 75w HeaterAquamai KPS Powerhead with controller.ADJ 8 Slot powerstrip - Not even been hooked up yet.Two fishes Nano magnet cleaner.Custom Built Stand - Built like a tank.Live Rock/Live SandThere is a Kenya Tree, Toadstool, Gorg in there if you want it.I had an ATO on the system, but found out that because of the BioCube Lid this thing doesn't evaporate water hardly ever, so really no point in the ATO, I still have it and can add it to the setup if you really want, but going to up the price obviously. I have a XPAqua Duetto ATO. This is not included unless you ask.I've got probably $700+ in this setup. I'm willing to sell outright for $500, not parting out, just isn't worth the hassle.Everything on this is brand new, tank has been up a little over a month, it is fully cycled though as I used Bottle Bac plus live rock from my main DT. Steve my orange storm clown has been in there since Day 1, he is not included. I'll be adding him back to the DT.I'm also interested in trades - Coral/Equipment. Send me a tell and I'll give you my phone #
  2. Yea Im pretty happy with em. I had wanted LED's for the frag tank originally to get that Blue LED Pop, but I'm just going to end up getting Reefbrite XHO strips for the 24" ATI fixture and call it good.
  3. Well I showed pics of the frag tank I got awhile back. I had the MP10 and Radion XR15W. Neither worked out very well, so I sold them and got me a 24" ATI 8 bulb Fixture. Kinda matches my DT now anyways, so don't have to worry about switching coral between the DT and Frag tank, especially because they are plumbed together. Anyways, got the light in yesterday and a 850gph Koralia pump (Only thing I could find that would go on 3/4" Acrylic without it being TO much flow). So all successfully setup now. Here's some pics. I'm pretty happy with how it turned out.
  4. No I'm not missing that point. I seriously thought I read somewhere they could go to 24. Oh well. Charge that much for a light that can't go more than 18x18, really meant for 12x12. So stupid. Think I'm done with Ecotech period. Ridiciously priced for not that great of equipment. Wonder if Kessils wouldn't be bad.
  5. 80 gallon or less lol. I have a 30g frag tank...
  6. According to Ecotech a xr15 will cover a 24
  7. So awhile back, I got dsteele's 16g Nuvo with the XR15W Radion Pro and MP10wES. I bought it with the intentions of using the entire setup, but ended up buying my frag tank from Advanced Acrylics instead. So I sold the 16g and kept the light and PH because I'd use them on my Frag tank. Marvin came over tonight and helped me set the whole thing up, Plumbing was a *****. Thank you again Marvin!!!!!!!!!!!! So I got the light setup on it and the MP10. First problem, I completely brain farted the fact that the tank is 3/4" Acrylic. MP10 won't work - Feel like an idiot...going to be selling that now and no clue what to do for flow... I did get the Radion up though. I still had Jorge's radion schedule so I got that going. Ecosmart Live proceeded to annoy the crap out of me as it wouldn't sync with my local time. It was 9:12pm and kept saying it was 11:57 am. I factory reset it, removed it all, updated it all, changed the clock on Ecosmart Live and everything manually, NOTHING worked. Finally gave up on that until Monday. However, I put some frags in there to finally try out my camera with the macro lens in a proper 12" high frag tank to get those amazing macro shots, Just to figure out that this XR15 doesn't really cover a 24" space very well like AT ALL. That one puck in the center kinda just sucks. I'm using the Ecotech Mounting arm as well, so its plenty high enough to get the proper coverage, I believe it even has in the wide angle lens. Coverage blows, can't get proper photos cause its so shaded except in the middle. So quite annoyed at the moment. Thinking of just selling the XR15w and the MP10 and getting another ATI 24" fixture instead, maybe the powermodule with the LED cluster if I can find it cheap enough. Just deeply disappointed with the XR15. Needs to be a XR30 I guess. Sigh...

  9. Got my new Macro Lens today, so Lots of pics
  10. Yea he recommended going 3/4". Could have probably went 1/2" but he gave me a heck of a price, so I didnt' care.
