Re: Light dimmer and leopard tiger shrimp

I have used the cheapy dial ones from amazon for led strip lights for a diy algae reactor. They work, but are extremely sensitive. If the dial rotated 1 rotation, the light changes were made it 10% of the band. The astra lights have the same thing built into their stock cable.

Re: Tank Temperature

84 is hotter than I would run for most tanks, barring discus or another specifically warm water tank. I would search on your livestock.

Re: Forum Upgrade

I have been using flickr to host photos here. Find the medium format works best (this may have improved with the new site, haven't tried yet. Get the bbcode, must be in desktop mode and click the share button. Only downside is it contains a ton of url crap in the code to trim.
