Hi there!

I have bought TC420 from ebay recently and a disk which come with it was unreadable. I was searching the internet for source where this software could be downloaded but without much success. I have found this thread and hope you may help me.
Could you do me a favour and share this software?

I can't say on this item but the last 2 things I bought from China were junk. 1 was a temperature regulated heater that stayed on all the time and heated my tank to 86 degrees before I caught it. The other was a light kit that arrived with half the bulbs inoperative and 1bad ballast. I would rather pay a little more to a more reputable place than buy something cheaper that you have no recourse to get your money refunded if it didn't work.

This is the one I use: Storm LED Controller - LEDGroupBuy.com and the case: http://coralux.net/?wpsc-product=3d-...torm-duplicate
It has 6 channels, programmable sunrise/sunset time, ramps lights up/down, programs in cloud and lightning effects, and you can program in fans, moonlights, and other items. You have to buy the case separately but there is a variety of colors you can mix/match to go with your aquarium.
Why do I love fish? Because every time I stare into the little world I have created for them, every problem I have just floats away....
