Delapool's 150 gallon tank

Thanks for the share . Grand news on your success and very keen to know how it all goes.


Nothing much to report here for the tank. I have a Seneye reef monitor on order so I can get some par readings between t5ho and LEDs. Worked out last night the red alt has grown about 2 inches in two months...

Didn't want to use a flash but he/she yawned a few times, rolled over and well you could almost hear the snoring.

That is hil-arious!

Dedicated sleeper!. There's a school of bn catfish in there and a bumblebee catfish as well as more loaches. They must tip toe around each other.

wish I could sleep that good lol , well at least he looks comfortable now he just needs a pillow
I have a giant domino damsel that sleeps on his side he blends in with the rock I kind of wonder if it is a sort of hunting tactic , play dead till all the critters come to clean up and munch

Very late Christmas gift. Running into heaps of trouble trying to order stuff. I gave up on ordering the Apogee PAR meter.

I found time to unpack this but ran into a small problem....

The meter comes with a 2 metre USB cable and I ordered 2 metres more. The Seneye meter reads PAR, LUX and Kelvin. Although I'd prefer the Apogee this may do the job.

I can't post any readings this weekend as I'd need to shift the computer to the tank to store measurements. I might see if I can borrow a laptop. I've ordered twice a USB power adapter from different companies as this will store measurements on a USB stick I believe. The other option is just about a wireless device which was as expensive as the meter. Grrr....

May just have to settle for learning how it all works and charts on the screen.

I might do a proper review thread on this later. It looks plug and play. The par meter will still work if one doesn't want to keep buying the ph / ammonia test slides. I hope to chart bulb decay on the lights as well as compare t5 to LEDs. The nerd in me finds the charting pretty cool.

Yet to really try out though.
