So I completed my DIY T5HO installation on my reefbreeders Photon V2. I am really happy with this as I do not need to hang the T5 from the ceiling like the aquatic life fixture. They can mount directly to the fixture which sits on my canopy. The Sunblaster fixtures weigh almost nothing and the 2 sets of 18” aquatic life mounting brackets from BRS were $13 a set. I paid $95 for the (2) 48” sunblaster T5HO with reflective lens included and $8 for the cable to tie the (2) together. I purchased a set of longer channel bolts and nuts directly from reef breeders $5 So all in with ATI coral blue plus lamp and special blue lamp I did this for under $200.
I am going to start with only 10 min a day at 3:00 peak Photon time. (Anyone think this is to long to start?) LMk
T5HO only over my 48 x 24 x 24 120 gallon.
T5HO and photon V2 with my above program over my 48 x 24 x 24 120 gallon.
well today I decided it’s time to make room for some more high light high flow sticks[emoji23] This being said I took 2 large pieces of my purple montipora and moved this to the (2) sides of my aquascape midway up so no more shadowing [emoji16]. Lots of different size frags which I will post where it belongs. I’m not totally happy with just the price of shelf and it needs something more. #workinprogress
