Now that we are settled (after a couple of crazy months) and relocating to the Bay Area, it was time to get another tank setup. I'm back in with a 50 Rimless Starphire Cube and custom DIY LED inspired by the new Radion XR30w Pro. I'm really loving this tank, I really liked my RSM 250 but wanted to try something with a sump. I was concerned about the noise (stock pump is really loud), I replaced it and suggest the Eheim Compact+ 3000, dead silent! The durso was also an issue but after asking a few 50 cube owners (thanks Duncan) I was able to build a custom durso that with a bit of tweaking is now silent also. For the lights, I decided to run 8 LEDs per dimmable channel to have complete control of the Blue , White & Color Matrix. I'm getting some crazy color combinations but for now I'm running each at 50% with 2 hour ramp up per channel.
