    Monthly Archives for March 2008

    It was a very good month. Dig in. Every entry is a classic.

    ecosystem mini

    Ecosystem has come up with a self enclosed nano system and clamp on style metal halide pendent. The halide is very similar to some popular italian landscaping lights we’ve seen, but the actual rotating bracket slightly distracts. Still, a nice option over the Coralife Clamp fixtures. If the price is right they will be popular among […]

    new modern luminaire

    Browsing Tuarrecife, we came across this pendent. Simple clean lines, exposed bolts, we find it to be one of the more attractive fixtures. The best part is it does not have the “spaceship” pendent look that is so common in the hobby. I know it will make a few feel the urge to say “I […]

As the bacteria are removed by the skimmer, so are the nutrient that […]

    seachem’s aqua vitro line

    Seachem has released their new “high end” additive line called aqua vitro. I must say they did a great job on the packaging and labels and it’s got me considering trying them out. Of particular interest is fuel and vibrance.
