Just a waiting game atm for the tank.

I promised the other half I wouldn't cut anything up until it arrived....she didn't fancy staring at a hole in the wall for weeks.

Cheers Kev I have alot to live up to now!

As long as my tank doesn't take as long to build as your fish system I'll be a happy bunny

I gave that sump a wash out this morning and it's filling with RO to soak the ceramics again, my god its slow.

My Boost LED Typhon Controller turned up today, looks like a nice bit of kit. Seems easy enough to use, maybe a bit basic but well worth 54. Just got to work out how to mount it but I have a few ideas.




The trouble is the buttons are set back from the display.



Looks like I'll need to bring the buttons forward with some extensions. My PC fan also arrived today so I set about routering it into my heatsink.





It needs a bit of tidying with a file here and there but it will look fine when I'm finished. Most of the LEDs will sit directly below the fan so should keep nice and cool.

The fitting will have be a mix of 3w and 5w Cree LEDs. 22 Royal Blue, 6 Blue, 7 Cool white, 7 Neutral white and a few reds for night viewing. The Typhon can control the whites, reds and blues seperatly to come an at various times, fade them in and out and control the dimming levels.

Ha ha! No, she hasn't let me go anywhere near the hole.....

I've been told the tank should be here this week, Kev at The Reef Shack is away Wed/Thurs so I'm hoping it turns up today or Friday as Seabray are delivering it there.

I have had alot of work come in so I want to get this project off the ground and cycling as soon as possible!
