    Thanks.

    Everything is doing good in the tank. I will post some more pictures later today and tomorrow. I did loose one of my blue thunder arcopora (bleached) when I bumped up the brightness on my whites. So had to turn them back down.

    Some other SPS and LPS I got from LFS or fellow reefers are coloring up very nicely. So I can officially say that LEDs are here to stay, at least for me

    You are more than welcome to stop by if like to see the setup in person.

    What are you dosing if anything to get so much color on that rock? Coralline algae growth is impressive! Awesome tank and progress

    Thanks Guys.

    I am dosing BRS part 1&2 with automatic dosers. About a month ago, I decided to put 10ml of BRS magnesium. within 2 weeks I started to see some very nice coralline growth, including some dark purple variety.

    About to loose power to the house for next 6-8 hours. Upgrading the electric panel for solar install.

    This little UPS is suppose to keep my Koralia Magnums running for a while. They only draw 30watts of power. This UPS has 550 watts of capacity. Theoretically it should run for 18 hours. Last night when I tested the UPS, it lasted only 100 minutes (1.5 hours).

    WORRIED !!!!

    PK go rent a generator. You might also want to add a battery operated air pump.

    Good on them!! It should have been a question number two, from the day they sold you the solar.

    "sir, any reason we should have a generator on site for life support, or other issues while we drop power...?"

    ... none-the-less, glad you got it handled. I'd have let ya borrow one in a worst case scenario.
