Thanks much Haloblur!

I'm already working on a smoked acrylic shield to block diffuse reflection. I've ordered a couple pairs of Eagle Pair 190-540nm glasses. Are those sufficient to protect my eyes and the eyes of any other observer?

Hah, that's my video OP! ;p (make sure to watch in 720p)
I told the guys on the Reefcentral.com Thread about my positive experience on this forum.
The laser in the video is from this thread.
I just received my waterproof 1.2W 445nm from lazerer.com
Time to charge the batteries and fry some pests.
I will update the thread in RC once i get a good video of "waterproof" feature.


also lotus - awesome pic ;p

Cool! So yours is actually a little less powerful and it still does the job. That is good to know. Somehow I missed the video in that thread but I found it on Youtube.

Default Survival Laser II - 1800mW 445nm

I can attest that 1800mW works great...







I'll post some before/after photos and video as soon as I get another pair of safety goggles for an observer/photographer. In the interim, if interested you can read my initial review of the use of lasers in marine aquaria here.

Thank you to everyone for your assistance in teaching a bunch of marine aquarium guys a bit about lasers!

Default Re: Laser for frying pest anemones in a reef aquarium

This is a pretty neat use for lasers but I am wondering if anyone had tried a single mode 405 laser?

I am just thinking it should be able to burn just as well with 1/3 the power of a 445 since it can focus it's energy into a much tighter area.

Yeah, you can have lots of fun with lasers in it.

I have on question. Can it damage the laser if the beam is reflected back on itself?

Yes, for this reason you should NOT ever shine the more powerful lasers into street signs. They reflect a LOT of light directly back, at any angle you shine.

but depending on your aquarium glass, i would just make sure it always goes through at an angle, not directly on it.

Yeah, I'm pretty much everywhere.

I guess with the waterproof laser you could get right in there and get them from all angles. Probably cool the laser a lot better too.

You probably want to rinse it off real good with freshwater afterwards. You know how corrosive saltwater can be.
