Neue Kategorie: Ecotech Radion schedule Downloads

19 Jan

Wir haben heute aufgrund der großen Nachfrage eine neue Kategorie eingeführt: Die Ecotech Radion Schedule-Download Plattform.

Bei den Radion LED Lampen sind die manuellen Einstellungen sehr einfach expotier- und importierbar. Wir möchten hier die Gelegenheit geben, Einstellungen anderer Ecotech Radion Nutzer auszuprobieren und zu übernehmen sowie (Neu-) Einsteigern Voreinstellungen bieten, die sich über Meerwasser-Aquarien bewährt haben.

Und ihr könnt mitmachen! Schickt uns einfach eine Vollansicht Euers Beckens mit den Beckendaten (Größe und Liter) sowie Standzeit mit LED Radion Beleuchtung und denSchedule als *.xml (einfach auf exportieren) an und wir stellen es hier ein.

Hier geht’s zur neuen Kategorie!

    Hello from Romania,
    First, let me congratulate you for the beautifull tanks you feature here. And thank you for sharing your schedule.
    So I installed 5 radion pro gen 3 today over my reef instead of a metal halide and t5 combo. And uploaded your schedule on them… Wow!! It was late in the afternoon and the high intensity was almost over, but during the evening I have seen colors on my corals and fishes like I have never seen before. It is great, but my question to you if you are kind enough to answer is if these insane colorations are ok for the corals? I mean is not a question of acclimation, intensity of light or quantity, but is the strange mix of blue and red for example around 21:00 that made some of my red montiporas or tricolor acropora look so good but also unnatural ..
    Not to talk about the fishes, they are scared and move around not knowing what to do… And I keep some sensitive fishes like moorish idol or Acanthurus Japonicus or P. Imperator. When do you think they will acclimate to these changes of light sometimes so different then those found in nature?
    Thank you

      Hello Andrei,
      thanks for your comment and congrats for having 5 Radions.
      I have no problem with the blue lightening in the evening – this is one point why I bought Radions. Colors are popping and the mix during the day is beautiful. I don’t have any problems with corals – colors are very good and the growth is as fast as like I had it before with T5 bulbs.
      If you want to, you can add some blue / white LEDs in the evening – I think it depends on your personal feeling. If you look at the spectrum between 21:00 and 22:00, you can see the peak is between 420-440 nm which is the most important rate for growing corals – so that should be good.
      Your fish will surely acclimate quick on the new lightening.
      I don’t think the light differs that much from that in the nature. Always remember, that the corals and fish that we keep are found in nature in a water depth of around 10-20 meters, where the blue light is dominating during the day.

      Be sure to use the acclimatization mode for a minimum of 6 weeks and keep an eye on your corals. If they become brighter, turn down the intensity otherwise they will bleach. With LED you have so much possibilities which can cause more problems than with T5 or MH but if you found the right settings for your tank, it is awesome! Send me some pictures, of you want to!

    hello Sebastian,
    thank you very much for your prompt reply. I really appreciate it.
    well, my concern was based on the fact that it is really the first time I see LED lighting over an aquarium, and firstly it looks just too nice to be true, and second, after I read soo manny unsuccesfull stories about this switch that I was very afraid.
    If you don`t mind i would have some more questions for you ( in romania there are not manny reefers, no clubs and not manny radions .. so if it weren`t for the people like you and your site it would be soo much difficult for people like me, just begining in some aspects of the hobby) : I have seen that your maximum intensity is 60 %, is this what you still use? I have changed that to 80 % overall and set the acclimation for 6 weeks begining from 50 %. If I would have kept your 60 % and begin acclimation from 50 %, that means that I would have begun actually at 30 % of they`r power( 50 % of 60 %)? what do you think?
    The fishes seem ok now, but I turned down the night mode around 3 am because they were soo scared. Maybe I will turn it on later.
    It is great that your cycle is soo long, you can see the tank from morning to night, but don`t you have problems with algae on such a long cycle? Also, I was reading that the red color promotes algae growht, and you use red combined with blue in the night.Did you had any problems?
    Also, do you think that there is gooing to be any problem starting from the begining with your cycle? I mean, would you advice anyone when they make the switch from MH to use directly this cycle, that seems soo complex and passes through soo manny changes during the day?
    Please excuse me if I bother you too much with these questions.
    And thank you for your answers,
    I will send you some photos of my 1000 l ( 210 x 75 x 70 ) DT complete with 300 l refugium with DSB and chaetomorpha and 2 x 200 l sumps with live rock.
    thank you again

      Hi Andrei,
      well – first of all it is good that you are satisfied with the colors on your tank. In my optinion you have bought the state-of-the-art LED lightening!

      Well, I think that those people having problems with LED mostly use DIY-LEDs or cheap China fixtures with only blue and white LEDs and oftentimes are not that experienced. The main thing on LED is that you have thousands of different ways of making the spectrum and therefore hundreds of possibilities for a wrong setting, which can definetly kill corals. In addition, corals can bleech by setting acclimatization too short or intensity too high. In fact you have to keep an eye on the development of the corals – if they get brighter, reduce intensity!

      Yes, I still use a maximum of 60% – you can try 80% and start from 50%. But always observe your corals. I also had 80% at the beginning and it was too much. Keep in mind, that the light intensity that humans see are not the same like the intensity the corals can use!
      I don’t have any algea problems – only my glass gets green after two days which seems normal (and which I had also before on T5 bulbs)

      My schedule is a bit a result of my personal like – I want to have my tank deep blue in the morning and and at night shining in all colors. The corals seem to like that too.

      I can say, that the schedule works brilliant for me but I can’t guarantee for that – it can be less or too much intensity – it all depends on the tank. Simply try it and don’t change that much. If you make changes, give it some weeks and observe what happens.

    Hello Sebastian,
    well, you are perfectly right about observing the corals. One cannot make this switch and go on a holyday, it requires carefull observation. I reduced the overall intensity at 60 % as it was originally in your schedule, and set the acclimation begining from 40%, because before it was too much light.
    Will see how this works. I don`t want to make too manny changes, but it is only the 5`th day, so I am carefull.
    During evening, the tank darkened from time to time, I think from the cloud probability, so I eliminated that, because it got so dark that some LPS begin to close, and then when the „clouds“ passed, they remained closed.
    It would be intresting to see if there are any differences between my gen 3 Radions and your`s on the same schedule.

    Thank you again for your help,
