Still too early to tell the type of Psamacora this is (encrusting or branching) but got to love those sweepers.

So I purchased the Asta 20 LED Marine on amazon for about £40. At the time it was for mushrooms mainly and also macro algae. I figured that when the time came to SPS corals I would slap on the Kessil A80 and away I would go with twigs, names etc.

My SPS this morning look better than they did under Kessil A360 and a 168w black box. So now I'm considering some other types of SPS and see what this little bargain cube can do



Forgot to mention this light has 4 channels. If it had a sunrise and sunset function it would be perfect.
Channel 1. Cold Blue 80%
Channel 2. Warn white 10%
Channel 3. Royal Blue 80%
Channel 4. Red, green 80%

Spotted some Sweepers out on my Green Pavona this morning, which is good news. However means I can't mount anything too close now...
Damn SPS

Pretty sure the Acropora and Hysterix are goners. They didnt look great when I took them out the shipping bag, mystic monti not looking to hot either.

Other than those everything looking good and acclimating to the light

Well seems that I need to take this down before it starts, need an ATO container and the Pico is perfect. Can still throw up a desktop SPS tank with the Fluval Spec 3 and spares laying around

Found a spare 10 gallon food tub that was un attended so I have an ATO container now and the Pico is continued to be worked on. Another day with sealant and rock rubble I should have the "final" shape, then will need to add sand and smaller rubble pieces.
