    My Oceanic 29BC

    After getting the 120G for Steph we wanted to start a seahorse tank. But things went downhill and am with my brother again....grrrr. But atleast I got to take the 29BC with me.

    Specs:

    My DIY Controller/Driver
    24x 3w LEDs ( 8x 10,000k, 4x 420nm UV, 8x 450nm Royal Blues & 4x 460nm Blues)
    Aquaticlife 115 Protein Skimmer
    25# LS
    27# LR

    Here is a picture of the tank after it first cycled..



    After I had a massive spike on all my parameters I had to restart again. Lost a few frags but can live with that. The tank now:

    It's cheaper to go with the Reef Angel Plus for 269.00 and the wifi module for 109.00. RK Elite (Net) is 450.00 Same amount of ports, pH and temp. But with the RA you can expand with ORP, salinity and a bunch of other stuff.

    Looks great. Better than i have done with tanks that size. Nano and bio cubes scare the crap out of me.

    I have a few gorgonia frags that would grow up nicely in there. Hit me up

    So I have re-arranged my tank a bit today and used the par meter this evening. I am running 2* 12up LED Pucks with no optics. The current readings are only using 2 of the 6 channels I currently have available.

    B:90% W:70%
