Time to pick lights for the new 140


LEDs of course.  At a minimum, we want a fixture with white chips from CREE, a full spectrum of colors, integrated tank mounts (sits on the top rim of the tank). Cost is a concern.

The tank and stand are about a week away, so it is time to pick a light fixture manufacturer and supplier (if the two are not the same) and model.

Please stay tuned …

For the fixture manufacturer we chose Reef Breeders .
The next step is choose a model.

Note that like most electronic devices these days, the maker is likely not the builder. The supplier does R&D, design and maybe some final assembly, and outsources the components and build.

A new build

We have received many requests for a KIS (keep it simple) system from scratch.

One of the first steps in a new build is finding the suppliers.  This step alone can be very time consuming and can add weeks sometimes months to a project.  Follow along as we identify our suppliers and build a KIS system.
