  1. I dunno , personally the shimmer is very distracting to my eye... but to each their own
     
  2. the only shimmer I've ever liked was Metal Halide shimmer

    I really like the one from my autor puck (rapid led), I might a weirdo for liking te shimmer, most people would avoid it.

  11. Seriously, watching his video is a whole list of what NOT to do in saltwater. How he doesn't quarantine and people told him he would lose all his fish, he didn't listen, and wiped out half his tank stock.

    I used to have Halides and the shimmer was nice, but it was really hard to look at for a long time and to be in the same room for long periods of time. So far my LED’s still do a little and don’t feel as intense. To me it feels a bit better for room ambiance, but doesn’t have that crazy “I’m underwater too” kind of feeling.

    I think I had a 70 gallon display with two MP40 (pulsing max), two Hydor Koralias (~600gph each), and my return was around 500gph as well. So I think over 100x turnover or more. Though the koralias were behind the rocks creating a "gyre" or flow tunnel to kill dead spots back there.

    The Mp40's were on opposite ends of the tank pulsing in sync to create a bunch of turbulence. I used to run a small wave but I was scared it would eventually topple the stand after a long time.
