Well, bit of a #### night with the tank. At 10:00pm, the lights go from setting 10 on blues only down to 6 which is just the 3xUVs. As soon as it...

Welcome to the forum Rhys. Lets see some photographs of the tank

LOL, what? it's an absolute hole.
Oasis and Kraken for me.
Nothing showing on their website :confundio1:
The colours you have in here are nothing short of fantastic. What additional stuff are you dosing?
That might flick the relay a little too often. I'd stick with 0.3. Also, run 2 heaters as redundancy.
I assume you have the new STC1000 Pro from that photograph. Does that allow the swing to be brought down to 0.3deg?
Yep, highly recommend getting a temp controller. They are cheap enough. Also, what flow do you have in the tank?
Exactly. I wouldn't like my tank to drop a full degree each way. Stability is the key to keeping a healthy reef.
I have mine running an STC1000. Set to 26deg with 0.3 deviation for heating and cooling. I think about stepping it up to 27 sometimes
