    Here's my rap How about I love LEDs because I do not need to change bulbs every 6 to 8 months? I do not have to chase every single lighting technology for bulbs from DD to ATI to Giesemann and then Eheim and now probably Giesemann? How about I love LEDs because most of the fixtures are slick and compact unlike Metal Halides and T5 pendents which are bulky and useless? How about I love LEDs because sometimes when I feel like Zouking, I can on it, give it a thunderstorm mode, or trial run mode and I get disco effect in my room? Save money on entrance fees, save money on booze and smoke and no need smoke in a yellow drawn box and best part, I can stripdance in my room like Steven Lee and nobody will care! How about I love LEDs because when I want to xian xiaomeimei or my reefing buddies, I can rev up the Royal Blue leds to give that "EXTRA" sparkle? Sparkle till their eyes go drooling, noses go bleeding and hearts go thumping?? "Wo YAO!....." *orgasmic scream* How about I love LEDs because when I know my lights are down and out, I got good aftersales support from the LFS who have been there for me since day 1. How do I not love LEDs?

    Love LEDs! For many many reasons. Firstly. It produces so little heat! Chiller no need work so much. Secondly, the spectrum is like WOW My coral colours really POP and come alive under LEDs. Last time it used to be blue and white, nothing to wow about. But now its full spectrum! Thirdly it is so powerful. Even corals can bleach under it. Like how powerful could it be to chase away those small little zooxanthellae! And it uses less power for that amount of power. Lastly is the new features that are being developed. Now most R&D are focused alot of LEDs. The prospects of it is very exciting. Now even got wireless control, even can mimic weather. Whatever next! Can't wait to see what else they can come up with

    Haha... Allow me to have a shot as I need one to supplement my mh and T5. And if it's proven, there is no stopping me to goal ( still World Cup mood ) LED all the way... Here's why I love LED. MH and T5 had been here for donkey years now.Going forward, there will not be breakthrough improvement. They are actually like women of age 50's. Their prime is over,excitement is history, and face lift and silicon filling ( R & D )will not help much either. Direction points down. Droops. Hey, LED is the latest girl in town. She is fresh, young and sexy. Probably like 20 something and one can spend more years with her, knowing she can only develop ( technology) better with time. She will bring out the best performance from you, day and night. She shines, she works, you just sit and relax and enjoy the colours before your eyes. So now, isn't it obvious. Who needs aunties mh and T5 when there is Miss LED. One is past, the other future. Miss LED is the way to a brighter , sexier and exotic involvement. I have made my choice for LED. What's yours?

    8 Reasons to believe and Love LED 1. Vivid Effect - On it, look at the celling, Disco time. You, coral and fishes. 2. Unlimited colour possibilities - Photo taking mode, thunderstorm, cloud mode for shy fishes - Have you tried it for Fresh water plant tank? 3. Ultimate performance - Powerful enough to burn out special colour of SPS - Exceeds the Visible Spectrum, not just what you can see. 4. Solid Design - It is not an equipment but an artwork a part of your setup. 5. Cost saving - Low electricity consumption and less heat goes to tank - T5 tubes a year = (8 tubes x $30 x 2 times a year) 480 SGD a year. Yes I am throwing a LED set every year. 6. Amazing scalability - Add on wireless control, connect to reef control system, racking system… - A lot more to connect with 7. Full control - Manage 10 tanks with up to 30 lights with one wireless controller - 100 control points per LED colour per group for a given day. - Access everywhere, any time 8. Easy maintenance and upgrading - Clean the fun, lens and check connection, that is all to keep it running. - Upgrade to a deeper tank? Just change the lens - New tech, new led bulb? Easy, replace the bulb then. So yes, I of course love LED, but Why I am still using T5? Images are from online, have fun! J

    for those who pmed me with interest to buy the frags. honestly i can't put a price tag on these small fragments of corals which is only a tiny fraction of the main colony that i bought. ill be killing the hobby if i were to sell this frags at cut-throat carrot price. best if you have something that i do not have and we can hit up with a trade. anyway.. currently millipora and 1 frag of birdnest is reserved to giveaway FOC to sincere reefkeepers. lets not aim to profit from this hobby and kill the joy of keeping these wonderful creations. zoas still up for trade

    Yes depending on your light spectrum as well. Sps colours differ from diff light. Sometimes you buy a sps from reefer tank look very nice but under your own lights it look different colour.also some sps will turn green before brown... Now white sps is the in thing. One lfs is selling white sps. Can go check it out. Hurry before it turns into tonga rock!!

    Dear reefers, I would like to start a thread to share my experience of setting up an outdoor tank. When I was having this idea 5 months back (due to limited space to setup an indoor tank), I was searching thru cg for inputs and comments but there was limited thread on this topic. Hence hopefully this thread that I’m about to start will be helpful for anyone thinking about setting up an outdoor tank. It’s purely sharing of my experience, far from perfection comparing to any professionals [emoji5] My indoor 322 at old house I’ve a indoor 322 prior to moving to this new ground unit condo. For an outdoor tank, I would say be more patience is needed and do more planning. To no surprise, there are also additional external environmental considerations to take note on top of the usuals for indoor tanks. Hence “site survey” is the first thing to do before many other things. Find the most ideal location (there will not be a perfect spot and in some cases limited options) that’s well shielded from rain and sunshine. It’s important to take note sunrise/set and seasonal rainfall changes across the year (to some degree). Ideal spot on the left, Patio facing a great greenery view. Fortunately I’m able to identified an ideal spot after 2 months of observing (wet and dry) weather conditions. Next is to consider the max allowable space and hence tank size tanking into considerations of sun and rain exposure. For my case it fits a 422 before tank starts to fill up with rain water [emoji28]. When it comes to tank build quality vs cost, I’ll have to take some risk to compromise “popping” of cabinet laminate. Constructing an outdoor quality wooden cabinet of 2m x 1m x 60cm is beyond my budget (>S$2K). For those that can afford it, got for it [emoji5]. As a preventive measure (or at least delay the damage [emoji27]), I implemented the following to minimise the degradation impact. Disclaimer, I’m also experimenting this [emoji28] 1) Used 2mm polycarbonate sheet from Dama to shield the laminate from harmful uv from sun and potential rain splash. 2) Strengthen the joints by gluing aluminium L brackets to hopefully avoid “popping” (pardon the the scorch taps, too lazy to remove after dry up). Polycarbonate sheet that looks like normal transparent plastics. The dark brown joint it the L bracket. Look of the tank The other challenge will be AC power. Typical patio or balcony will not have many (or none) power points for heavy duty usage. For my case there is only one !! I’ve asked the electrician how much can this source... average +/- 1000W. Calculating the total amount of power, I’m really at the brink with all necessary equipment in. Contingency plan will be to tap on lighting power points (if available) to source for low power equipments. There are pros and cons of sunshine, while many might worry about algae and electricity bills.. it has its merit of natural sunlight mimic the real sea environment. For my case, it gets 3-4 hours of morning sun which is ideal where I don’t have to turn on my lights, offsetting some electricity bill. Morning sun shining into live stocks, growing well. You can see the background reflect of the sky on the right too [emoji5] If you have a water point at the outdoor area, perfect ! Then your wc will be a lot more simpler. For my case, I’ve a water point Arthur patio area that I’ve hooked up my RODI just beside the tank. Thanks quite a long intro [emoji28]. Thanks for reading so far and hope you find it useful thus far. Next update will touch more on the tank setup itself. Happy reefing Sent from Singapore Reef Club mobile app

    Hosting this chalice for a fellow reefer. Can see its covering a little more of the frag plug. Found a baby Banggai Cardinal yesterday morning. Scooped it out before it gets eaten by other big fishes. Feeding on baby brine shrimps The rest of the fries were released from the father's mouth tonight Manage to catch them out. Hope they survive.

    It's always responsibility of the buyer to quarantine new fishes. There are zero marine fish shops here that hold fish for a full month of quarantine (yes that is how long real quarantine takes) before selling, fish will end up being too expensive for the market here to accept. There also can be the best copper systems, uv systems put in place but if the fish already arrive with diseases from the supplier there is nothing much the importer can do. If you want to be safe, pay for the fish fully and have the shop hold the fish for a week. If there are any signs of whitespot/velvet it will show up by then and it's a measure that could end up saving your entire collection.

    Hi all, sorry I have not replied your pms and messages as I have been settling some stuff. It has come to my attention that there was aefw found on one of the colonies that i sold to a friend. I have suspended all sales and enquiries so as to let all of you know what is needed for you to make a better, more informed decision. From my inexperienced eyes, i see my sps still as healthy and if you are still interested, you can always come down and make your own decision on whether to get or not. I will ignore all previous messages and only respond to those that I receive from since this post has been made onwards. Cheers!

    I will anytime give back to those who deserve it but sadly not everyone or anyone, those who know me in person will know I do give away free frags. And your thoughts about me making money from community is totallly poor judgemental. I think I can easily sell the frag at good profit, in fact I was approach by few reefers to buy my corals in private but I rejected them and told them to look out for my auction instead. So why do I want to like to use auction instead of sales? Reason is simple, I dont want to dictate the price, I let the public decide how much they want to pay for it. If you do not notice, my starting bid is always low $1 or for this case $8. End of day I absorb the risk if it falls below the market value. If it ended up higher, whatever I make I get to buy new corals and again those that deserve will benefit from it and the cycle continues. .... I don't think I violate any of your house rules, do I ? You set two auctions per month, I will just post two, that's it. Like I mention in my post, I respect that When you say your moderator integrity are being challenged, why is that so? What causes that? Is it because of something he/she did that doesnt look right? Or is it because I pointed out "people might think" (look carefully ah, the word is MIGHT and not people think)? In whatever the case, the moderator is what you guys choose, I got no ground to interfere. His sacrifice to help out without any pay indeed deserve our respect. But that doesnt mean his action is always right and people perception might percieve it otherwise. If you dont like then next time I just keep quiet and let ppl talk behind the back lor. By the way, do you know the reason why I was ban 10 years ago? Somemore I got 5 warning points......I must be bad. But you also good lah, know how to choose the right venue to bring the point across... Cheers! Let's not disturb my auction, its $24 liao......you guess how much it will end? Cheers, James

Dont mean to be rude but it will affect your reputation and peoples respect for you, as you are responsible for what you post, even if its your friends product. After seeing the incident of ssc overpricing and now this, I seriously hope this isnt going to become a trend where people overprice common or not so expensive coral for the sake of profit. Hope you take my advice and respond nicely to any negative feedback sorry for being so direct haha. Happy reefing!

    Several reefers asked me via whatsapp to share more about the Clarisea fleece usage. One key concern folks have is how fast its consumed which ultimately affects running cost. Some reefers say the fleece last 3wks to a month. That's possibly because they push too much water through the unit, causing water to rise prematurely & roll to advance too fast. I had this issue initially but realized its not necessary to do this especially if you have a high flow rate system (I'm running 2x Vectra M1). I opened up the bypass valve on the Clarisea to let more water pass through. Now the fleece is consumed less quickly & looks 'darker' in color => fleece is fully saturated & not advanced prematurely. Currently NO3 is running around 2ppm which is right where I'd like it to be. Opening up the bypass has absolutely no effect to worsen water quality. Pic below shows 1 week usage. Added a small Achilles Tang recently. Its clear that ATs must be quarantined to ensure survival. It took a week in a 'quiet' isolated tank for it to eat comfortably. Dumping it into the display tank on day 1 & be stressed by other fishes will very likely end up with stress & ich. I added display tank water & bio media into the QT early on. As there were other large tangs in the display tank, the introduction process had to be threaded carefully. Once the AT is deemed resilient enough, I added the most aggressive yellow tang (and 2x larger) into the QT to stress it out & for them to make peace. If they were to get hurt or ich appears, at least its still in the QT. Fingers crossed it survives. A short clip of the journey

    Review of the DD Clarisea Gen 2 automatic Fleece Filter Roller Mat filter systems provide robust mechanical filtration for extended periods of time are getting popular these days. I tried the SK-3000 initially & finally settled for the larger SK-5000 version. Disclosure : My unit was provided by Reef Depot as acknowledgement/recognition for the feature in the recent AI Hydra Signature Series. SK-3000 has 145mm x 205mm foot print. Handles up to 3000 l/hr SK-5000 has 145mm x 255mm foot print. Comes with a slightly wider fleece roller. Rated for 5000 l/hr For those who are not familiar with such products, its essentially uses a disposable roller made of ‘fleece’ material placed around the structure. As tank water passes through the filter fleece during use, it starts to clog up with detritus, causing the internal water level to rise. The high water level triggers a float switch and the integrated motor winds the fleece material by a couple of millimeters to introduce new filter fleece material. Flow Rates One point to note on flow rates. These filter systems can handle a lot of flow. Most of us may use return pumps that may have higher flow numbers. But note that the real flow rate is very much reduced after factoring head loss due to piping & head height. My tank is a 5ft 850L system running on Ecotech Vectra m1. First Impressions & features Assembly was relatively easy. Watch the online video to complement the printed instructions Good build quality. Acrylic pieces came with protective film. Dampen with some water to peel the protection sheet off. I’m impressed with the small foot print as it could fit the small compartment in my sump. No need to cut out panels of the sump to fit this in. It has an adjustable arm that allows you to re position the roller to various positions. This nice design idea is an enabler to for it to be installed in my system. A front flap can be rotated open if you want to bypass the filter (eg. During feeding or adding pods or rotifers) Float switch : Fleece material. Filters up to 20 micron particles. So this will outperform any filter sock of filter wool to keep the water crystal clear Typical filter socks are 200-300 micron. Filter wool will probably let larger particles through. One tip to prevent the take up reel from slipping during the initial set up is to fold the fleece back. Apply a short length of masking tape around the corrugated sleeve Then wind forward a little bit Plumbing Inlet attaches to a 1” pipe. Its quite easy to retrofit for existing tank systems. Depending on your downpipe, the easiest option is to get a pipe reducer. Then fit a plastic hose or silicon hose. A non kink food grade silicon hose is best as the smooth internal surface will ensure minimum resistance. Available at Madpetz or ReefmarketSG. Water enters the unit through this strainer. To optimize usage of the roller fleece, I found its best to raise the unit as high out of the water as possible with just the strainer submerged. The unit comes with adjustable hangers to adjust the height. In my case, i put some basket/egg crates under the unit. Control The unit has a small control unit that connects to the motor & float switch. There are a couple of buttons on it. Advance the motor to wind the fleece Alarm. This is triggered when the float switch is activated for more than a couple of minutes – an indication that the fleece is not advancing Usage Its been running in my tank for the past week. The fleece is 25m long & should typically last about 1-2 months depending on flow rate & water conditions. Once nice thing is that it does not smell bad. I read its a special low odor fleece material where there outer layer dries up & locks in the smell. Overall, I see 2 key advantages of having such a system : No more changing filter wool/socks every few days. Good for going on trips/holidays and for busy reefers Cleaner water with the 20 micron filter fleece. And filtered dirt is moved out of the water quickly instead of sitting in the filter wool/socks for days Another piece of equipment to make reefing easier

    Would like to give honour to Yellowtang, uncle mike's frags or coral are always the best of health and he is always ready to share his knowledge, experience with buyer. Most of the time he also give us free frags to try on top of the purchase items. I remember one time he even make effort to photostat an article about biopellets for me to read when he learn I was going to try out biopellets.
