Pricewise these were too bad.  They were about half of what it would take me to do AIs or Radions.

I got the controller all connected and everything.  I just need to get some eye bolts to hang the lights.

Allright, I got the new lights all programed and installed.  Unfortunately, I finished when the moonlights are on so I couldn't take a good picture.  I do like the lights with all of them on.  I turned them on manually with my phone to get a quick look.  I liked how they looked, they are little whiter than my T-5s but not bad.   I am glad that I didn't have to blaze the trail in terms of programming the Apex.

Good to hear they went up quickly.  I was wondering how much programming you might have to do.

The programming wasn't to bad.  I had to set up a couple of profiles in the Apex and then do a few lines of simple programming.  It was basically IF--Then Statements.  I verfied this morning that the blue lights were ramping up correctly.

Looks good Mike.  I was looking at your rock work trying to see if you spelled something out.

Re:New House, new Fish Room Build (permalink)
Well, I have some bad news to report.  The ich that I had returned.  I lost one of the semilarvatus.  I was able to pull the rest of the fish out and now have them in QT again with copper.  Also, I am going to have to get rid of a couple of the butterflies.  I bought some SPS at Preuss and couple of them immediately attacked them.  Here is kind of a run down what I found so far.
 
Hammer and Torch coral .... left alone by all
SPS --  Attacked by Semilarvatus (which I knew was a risk)  and Punctatofasciatus (Per an article I read was safe with everything)
 
I ended up re-scaping the tank as a result of catching the fish.   I will grab a picture tomorrow

Sorry to hear that Mike.  
It can't be easy to catch a fish in that size of a tank.

Thanks AJ!   Not as bad as I thought.  Only took a couple hours.  I only took out a couple rock.  I did have to move a bunch though

Re:New House, new Fish Room Build (permalink)
Any thoughts to keeping a pair of cleaner shrimp in the tank?

Re:New House, new Fish Room Build (permalink)
I don't think I am going to go the shrimp route.  They still won't eat stuff in the sand bed.  This could get ugly.  I lost another 2 today.  1 Longnose and the Vagabond.  I am treating the tank with Copper and Prazipro.   Let's see if they pull through
