Introduction

I have had many freshwater tanks over the years and decided to learn something new. Saltwater was the next step and presented the biggest challenge, but also the greatest reward. I haven't looked back since.

joel ‐ Dtum-I will try and make a video for you. I got the wide version so each light covers a 2'x2' area. There is a narrow version which I did not like as much for my application. I just have enough surface aggitation to make a great effect, but as mentioned you can go more or less for your taste! For me I have dived many times and I love the slow flowing ripple effect vs disco party. So a powerhead bouncing off the glass and hitting the surface is just perfecty and a wave maker setting.
k4reef ‐ nice setup bud.
joel ‐ Thank you! Its starting to come along
joel ‐ Just uploaded a video of the tank, minimal surface movement and still a nice shimmer effect.
