  1. Acrylic Creations is in PA but I was not happy with the tank seams. they offered to build me a new one if I shipped the old one back at my own expense. I felt that was ridiculous and instead bought a new tank from Advanced Acrylics in CA. Love my tank!!! Here's photos from when I first installed it.
  2. Here's a photo from yesterday along with my favorite piece.
  3. Thank you for the feedback! I feel like it has taken me a year to dial in the flow. I am restricted on pump placement given the double sided viewing, and I don't the pumps to be visible on the overflow side. The Radions are still in a long, long, long ramp up mode. They were at 45% max for some time and are just now passing 50% on their way to 55%. A friend brought a par meter over, and the top of the rocks are just over 300 at the moment. The bottom is closer to 90/100.

  5. Try a manual factory reset of the light before trying to add it. That has worked when I have had issues adding multiple vortechs. Sent from my Pixel XL using Tapatalk
  6. Selling 2 MP40wQD's. I upgraded to MP60's for my 180G since these were not getting enough flow across the tank. They were both used for approximately 6 months and are in perfect working order. $250 per pump if picked up or inquire for shipping rates. Thank You
  7. Soooooo probably doing too much but I went ahead and just changed the schedule to the official AB+ program, 50% brightness and 35% intensity. I thought the corals were having a pretty good reaction when I saw the rims of several really start to build on the bases.
  8. Some photos under morning blues. I was reading more about the AB+ program and saw they did something I had done on my old tank and forgotten. The red diodes are turned way down from the other programs. I do recall that having a beneficial result and have mirrored that range in the radiant color mode.
  9. You know I would still like to add more fish, but if you can believe it after a year I am still dialing in these Radions. They are now at 60% total intensity on the Radiant Color program and I think that is still too much power. Today I dropped the intensity to 50% but extended the exposure time by 1 hour. So they will now run from noon to 10 PM. I read the threads about those that run them at 100% output and I just don't understand how they do it without frying every coral in the tank. Its a conspiracy is what it is
  10. Starting to get that pop under the blues at night...
  11. Well I would say slow and steady is about right...yesterday I moved the MP60's higher in the water column to help increase flow across the entire tank. I was seeing a lot more new growth from the side of the tank closest to them, and could see the water was close to stagnant on the far side. Increasing flow was not working but this seems to be doing the trick. Its also the last thing I can think to change to help improve the health of all these sticks!! So far so good...below are some photos of what I'll call my favorites so far.
