Any help would be nice.


Raymon

Reduce the number of LEDs - with a 13.5v PSU and a ledseeduino driver you will be able to run a maximum of 3 LEDs per channel.  If you are going to put a resistor in, it goes between the driver and the LEDs not between the PSU and the driver.

So let me see if i understand.

From the 13,5v psu i go to the ledseeduino.

From the ledseeduino if I connect the port to output 1a, i can place 3 leds in serie. Can i place multiple paralel on one channel?

Or I dont connect the port of the ledseeduino to 1a but place a resistor between the ledseeduino and the 3 leds in serie?

A quick update from me.  Haven't been around the forum for a while, but am still enjoying my mini reef.  My Jarduino hasn't missed a beat.

I'm not dosing any chemicals - I have activated carbon in a sock in the rear chambers along with some Rowa Phos that I change about once every six weeks.  14 litre water changes are done religiously every fortnight; it seems that the corals I have get everything they need from the salt.

I've recently had to frag my Australian Duncan and Candy Canes.  They had become so large that they were suffocating themselves! The Candy Canes had gone from two heads to 21!!, The Duncans from three to 18!

I think there is still something to be said to keeping it small and simple.

Stick in with your building/programming everyone - it is worth it!

Wow, can't hardly see any live rock anywhere, looks like they've taken over.  I agree with you, with fairly frequent water changes (using a decent salt mixture), a lot of corals will get pretty much everything they need.  There's certainly a lot of benefits of doing water changes over dosing.  All dosing really does is replace some of the stuff corals use up in seawater, whereas water changes replaces pretty much everything, while also removing some of the toxic buildup...  In the long run wc's can be more expensive and involve more work, especially compared to an automatic dosing system.  I will eventually work on an automatic waterchanging system so one day it will level the playing field.  One day...  Anyway, thanks for the update!

My Percula Clowns must be happy with the Jarduino lighting as they started spawning.  After a lot of reading and prep I've managed to rear some - they're six weeks old today.

Very time consuming but an interesting experience!  Sounds like the next release is getting closer Jamie....  I might need to build another tank and get the soldering iron out again for my Jarduino mk2.
