New LifeReef Sump and Plumbing Photos (CLF2 and LifeReefugium)

The new CLF2 and LifeReefugium from LifeReef have arrived.  I am busy staging and cementing all of the plumbing into its final positions.  Trying to remain as patient as possible as all of the fittings set, and making sure to measure several times before making anything permanent.

Unidentified SPS Coral

1" Frag I have had for a couple months now.  Just starting to show some real potential with purple tips appearing and new growth at the base.

Reef Link

This is a game changer in my ability to make quick changes to aquarium lighting, flow, and to be alerted to potential issues (Vectra L1 and M1) while on vacation.  For those with Vortech pumps, you can modify schedules to provide multiple wave motion settings and intensities without physically adjusting the drivers.

Ecotech Marine Radion Gen 3 Pro Schedule

I was looking back to 2014 when I was last seeing the best SPS color and growth results but I didn't have a record of the schedule I was running.  Now that I have the light dialed in again its time to document for next time.

1 Ecotech Radion Gen 3 Pro, 8" above the water surface.  Tank is 20" deep, and 24" wide with a total water volume of roughly 37 gallons in the display area.

Radiant Color pre-set at 60% max intensity extended to start at 10:00 AM and end the day at 9:00 PM with a 3 hour moon light period ending at midnight.
