We’ve already posted two entries about the makeover and system redesign on this 180 gallon aquarium. You can read them here  and here.

Notice that empty refugium in the”after” pic? It’s not empty anymore…

The refugium keeps nitrate levels down by providing a safe haven for chaeto algae and by simply increasing water volume.

We were able to get this light from the customer’s reef tank upstairs.

This tank looks great already but this reef keeper was ready for to upgrade his lighting. His sps coral should thrive under his new Pacific Sun Hyperion S 4x 145W LED aquarium light.

Sean puts the finishing touches on the aquarium lighting installation. The Hyperion S has 8 independently programmable light channels aligned in a cluster array to reduce the disco ball effect of many LEDs.

For their S series lamps, Pacific Sun decided to remove the white LED diodes which are unnecessary for achieving full spectrum light output (and can be harmful and “bleach” coral if used improperly).

The moonlight cycle has begun as the reef begins to settle in for the night. We love the new LEDs and the new control panel and plumbing setup downstairs. This aquarium is now safer, better-looking, and easier to maintain. With the new refugium, the reef and fish themselves will be healthier and happier.
