    Update of 15G with new 70W 14K Bulb...

    Good day guys,

    I have been testing a new 70W 14K DE bulb from from Recif Quebec (Mike) and all I can say is WOW...

    Now I understand when they say that CYANO might be caused by bad bulbs (Color)...I had an older 20K bulb before.

    You can see the older pics here...My Web site.

    My Cyano has almost all disapeared (except certain low flow area) and I am very please with this bulb...

    Here are two pics...Forgot to clean the Salt from the windows

    and

    Hope you like them.

    Very nice! What reflector are you using with the new lamp and what is the length of the lamp? I'm think of a future project.

    Lamp...

    Kenzy,

    This canopy is a Full DIY...


    The lamp is actually just the lenght of the bulb+HQI Double ended socket...about 6".

    The reflector is a piece that I took off a a Home depot Lamp.

    Lookup DIY 70W DE setup on the web and should be able to find alot of info

    Not sure if I answered your question?

    very nice remi. I'm in the process of setting up something very similar but with a 25 tall tank. Where did you buy your 14k 70w bulb? which water pump are you running?
    Could you take a few pics of how you did your over the top plumbing (returns)? I'm trying to figure out how to best do this myself.

    i have a 70w ballast and picked up a 10k hqi but no doubt will need to add some additional lighting to get away from a yellowish look i'm told the 70w hqi's usually give. Maybe 2 t5's or pc jammed in the canopy with the 70w i'm thinking.
