what should be the led distance from screen?
this leds run on 850mA,
but the drivers i've found are 900 or 600...
can you help me find the right one, to run 8 of this...
But on each side?
I'm thinking in use this, http://dx.com/p/epileds-sf-3w-gh-3w-660nm-red-light-led-soldering-bulb-plate-silver-186908
and i should have 4 to 6 less each side? or total?
hey guys... I started buying some things...
I have a doubt here...
would a 6in x 6in screen, with 3 x 3w red led each side enough?
the total is
36 square inches in 18W red led.
and whats the...
sorry but i forgot.
a nice way for dont have a sump, its a AIO tank( All in One).
then, you have a "sump", and can hide somethings :D...
We have a thread here, about the discussion of ATS replacing skimmer... you can start only with ATS, and if you see that its necessary, place a skimmer.
ATS its an nutrient exporter better than...
ok, thanks :D
and would you recommend led or cfl?
you only do 6 hours off?
whats your photoperiod?
and what your consideration about led and CFL?
looking the picture that you posted last page, looks like CFL is doing better...
wow, big difference...
wow, never heard of that SCWD...
googled it... I really want to buy one now!
what was your tank volume??
wow, for that price... kinda expensive dontcha?
where did you bought these leds?
uhm... I think that you're having slightly less algae, because of that then...
nice tank,ATS, and topic.
really rare to see a up to date topic like this :D
that horizontal screen, its in the same tank?
Whats your photoperiod on the ATS?
For more accurate results, could you try to post a everyday photo?
I never saw this...
and some spec about your setup.
I want the visual as clean as possible, that's why I want the return flow, to be my only flow...
I was thinking in a scrubber closer to AC accoral... but smaller.
remember to keep posting your progress!
if its a 22 gallon tank, for softies and fish should be 15 times the display? like 300 gallons/hour?
the tank circulation, can I handle only with the return pump? and for 22 gallons, what return pump should I use?
what you think about circulation?
Santa, I didn't understand what you said...
my scrubber would stay in sump, and about circulation I said about the return pump from sump.
ok, so I got the stand now...
here it is:
The surface area of the stand is 40cm x 40cm.
Post more pictures of your tank!
its nice to see the evolution!!
and with this kind of growth, it will be really nice!
about the cloudy water, do you consider...
scrubber + live rock.
fishes releases ammonia.
the live rock contains microorganisms that convert ammonia in nitrite and nitrate.
scrubber (algae) absorb nitrite and nitrate to grow up.
Thank you SantaMonica.
How many cubes would I need to feed 2 clowns, and some soft corals?( young clowns)
in a 20g reef.
Floyd, what would be the amount of cubes for 2 clowns with some soft corals?
I'm from Brazil, and we don't measure feeding by this...
when you say a cube, you're saying a cube inch? 2,5cm x 2,5 cm...
That cleaning was from how long using srubber?
Floyd, so for my setup ( 2 clowns, some corals in 17G), would you recommend a 2 sided light with 3 leds of 3W?
The total power would be 18W, 9W each side.(Cree Leds)
And Floyd, do you recommend any...
pics please... more information about setup..
SantaMonica, those leds would be for scrubber, are you sure about it?
I was thinking in using 2 of these http://www.ebay.com/itm/14W-225LED-Red-Blue-Hydroponic-Plant-Grow-Light-Panel-lamp-Board-Garden-Quadband-/370760890426?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item565312383a...
in the sump, that would be in the stand.
Try to show some nice designed tanks and stands...
I'm looking for a certain design!
I saw some...
You're right... I'll look other designs.
Really nice... but I was thinking in not exceeding the tank area...
Do you think some plumbing in the back(but inside) of the tank would pollute the visual?
This design... but internal:...
Uhm... thanks! I'll study this :D
and... any idea of silent overflows designs for me?
I already had another tank with 36 G, that I used ATS...but i had to sell it and give some parts because i needed to move...
Since now I'll have a stable place, I wanted to set a new aquarium,...
really nice build!
make some photos of everthing in sump! :D
and dont forget to show some result!
just clean your algae display,sump...
them, the place that algae is going to stick, is the screen!
continue updating :D
yes, but if we colonize it, with a colony... would be much faster!
reading ATS PATENT --> http://www.google.dk/patents?id=NogyAAA ... &q&f=false
i saw that a few types os green algae were listed for warm waters: bryopsis and derbesia...
and for cold one :...
dont forget to update about this tank!
i want to see a tank goes with ATS from zero!
i dont saw that was each side!
for me its ok,just be sure, that the lamp has 2700k, that i think its the best!
paulie, your lights looks realy white, whats the color temperature?
i'm not sure, but i think that 2700k~3300k are the best...
