Hi Jon, I'm quite new to reefing myself. I'm curious if you'd be willing to share you light schedule with me? I'd be more than willing to send you an email as well if you're willing. Your tank looks wonderful.

I do hope that wrasse is now in a bigger tank, the person who sold you that either didn't know what size tank it was going in or they had no idea what they are doing

I had a terrible experience with two AI Primes I owned... I think I just had the bad luck of getting two lemons from Drs. Foster and Smith.

well on my new 4 foot tank im having 3 so i guess you would need 4 or 5 but 4 would do the job just fine.

I am really curious if you have any problems with any of the nuisance algae running your green and red so high? Question two: What max white should be running? I am getting alot of conflict opions.
Christi Cechner
Christi Cechner - 4 years ago
Thanks, good to hear. I was a bit nervous switching from Halogen to LED, I just had no clue as were to set the lights, just was told that using green and red would cause algae. Changing my lights now. Grin.
Jons Exotics
Jons Exotics - 4 years ago
no i dont get any algae due to the light the only algae i get is due to lack of water changes i run my light at 60% for 2 hours of the day and then it is a constant ramp up and down from there.

Can you recommend the proper settings for the light? I cannot find any information and just winging it. Also the lunar settings I would appreciate any help on those settings.

hey I have a question on the top that you have on the tank I'm sure that you made it correct or at least have the glass cut? what I'm really interested in knowing is where you got those clips to hold the glass on top I have an Innovative Marine tank and I want to make a glass top like this thanks a lot subscribing!

+PULL MY Finger best advice besides no fish would be to have smaller fish. and a refuguim system along with consistent water changes.
e46orozco
e46orozco - 5 years ago
+PULL MY Finger nitrates are not the devil as we have learned in the last 4 years, that is why consistent water changes and refugium biological filtration such as macroalgae is the key to a healthy Reef system my nitrates are undetectable and I don't even have a refugium system, weekly water changes charcoal is all I run. no filter .... that's like saying there should be no fish in the ocean even though there's already an ecosystem that perfectly balanced out the ocean to not have nitrates.... owning a reef system is doing our best to replicate the ocean and fish are one of the biggest parts of the attraction. I don't know why you're being the fish tank police here but you really shouldn't tell people how to run their tanks if they're looking healthy lol
e46orozco
e46orozco - 5 years ago
+PULL MY Finger what're you talking about lol many successful reef tanks have fish lmao?
Jons Exotics

+e46orozco it actually came with the aqua one tank itself im sure if you call them up or search it up you can find the clips and so on.

I just bought this same led fixture and mount, it says it's 18" width. you think this is effective enough to light up the whole spread on this tank ?:o
e46orozco
e46orozco - 5 years ago
what do you think should I buy another one or to sync them teovtehr In my 24x24 tank or should I just buy the next light size up that's 340

Can two of these lights be controlled at the same time?
bruce phillips
bruce phillips - 5 years ago
+Christo Klopf fairly simple process using a app on my smart phone. ill make a tube if you want. prime vs kessil hmmmm prime 50cmx50cm coverage with 35cm suitable for sps with a quick drop in par by depth and diameter. controlling the unit is super easy with no extra bits needed. kessil xtra controller for spectrum adjustments. better focus but poor coverage. no replacement parts for kessil. both require a mount. (easy to fab a bracket for the prime. little harder for kessil but still easy.
Christo Klopf
Christo Klopf - 5 years ago
+bruce phillips how does that work? And how would you compare two of these to two kessil a160we?
bruce phillips

I read that it has the ability to emulate the weather in your area, sunrise sun set and any storms or cloud cover, Is this true? Can you set it to automate those?

So you know T5 bulbs are highly customizable with multi bulb fixtures and have a very even lighting with no shadows on corals like LED.

+Jons Dragons Happy Reefing
goxcpre
goxcpre - 5 years ago
For sure. I just wanted to make that point since there has been a movement in the hobby from LED to LED T5 Hyrbids as the best lighting for SPS growth. LEDs are pretty amazing though and your fixture and tank are beautiful. I have a CREE DIY LED and a Tek T5 and like the ease of use of the LEDs but the growth of my T5s <3
Jons Exotics
Jons Exotics - 5 years ago
+goxcpre not as customizable as LED's that why i got the prime and why buy 10 different bulbs for a different look when you can just adjust the led intensity ?. but i knew that anyway thanks

Hi, I see that part of the metal mounting bar is in contact with seawater, is there any corrosion problem?
Caleb Wong
Caleb Wong - 5 years ago
+Jons Dragons
Thanks for the advice. I have the same tank and am considering to switch to the AI Prime light.
I am concerned that the metal may go into the seawater and affect the corals.
Jons Exotics
Jons Exotics - 5 years ago
+Caleb Wong its aluminum and that does not rust over time i could/ might see some colour fading but it will not break. and plus their are only $40 so i can just get another one if need be

Can you tell me the actual depth of you water I have a Red Sea reefer 170 which measures 23.5width 19 deep and 20 tall everyone says this light won't work but your tank is almost the same size The water level is set about 2 inches from the top so even tho it's 20 tall the actual water will be 18 Any thoughts are helpful
Jons Exotics
Jons Exotics - 5 years ago
+Kevin OKeefe my measurements of the tank are 24x18x18 inch the red sea reeder 170 will probs do the best with 2 ai primes on it rather than one
