Equipment Deliveries

Posted 11/06/2011 at 01:23 PM by Aaarrrggg

While all that was happening a few goodies arrived:

[B]2 x Vortech mp40 pumps[/B]
I really like the mp10 I have on my nano, so I figured this tank deserved 2 mp40s.

[B]2 x EHEIM Jager Aquarium Thermostat Heater 200W[/B]
I read that having 2 heaters that can heat half the tank volume each is better (safer!) than having one that can do everything. So I bought 2 of these guys. I figured I can pop one in each overflow.

[B]Reef Octopus XP-2000SSS Skimmer[/B]
I had dabbled with the idea of an algae scrubber instead of a skimmer. I even seriously considered buying a [URL="http://www.reefcentral.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=502"]Santa Monica 100[/URL], but in the end it was the lights that put me off. As soon as they make a scrubber with LED lights, I'm there, but in the meantime, this behemoth will have to suffice!

Here it is in the sump:

...and last... but [I]definitely [/I]not least...

[B]2 x Radion LED lights![/B]
I've been lusting after these beauties since I first heard about them. They're lights with white, blue, royal blue, green and red LEDs, which means you can make every color under the sun! I was disappointed to discover that their software isn't fully functional yet, but hopefully soon I'll be able to enjoy all the cool features (lunar cycle, full LED control, storm mode which interacts with mp40 pumps!)
