    At every LFS I go to it seems that the Zoa's are always under actinics. I bought some Zoa's and when I got them home under my lights they weren't as bright and vivid like they were under the actinics. I have 2 250 watt 14000k MH. If I were to add actinic lights to my setup would they have the...

I have 2 blue and one white light. all of my coral and my single rose BTA is all looking well, for now, But is this sufficient lighting?

    Now that our tank has been moved and has new sand and we've rearranged the rockwork, they're finally lots of room on the sand in the front of the tank for something pretty. I've wanted a brain coral for a long time. Can someone tell me about their general care? Also, which is harder to keep...

    36wx4 $179 or 96wx 2 $79, While the t5s will be brighter even at the lowerr wattage (with proper reflector), is it worth paying twice as much? I ran PCs before on small tanks with good results 5 years ago when t5 HOs were virtually unheard of. Now I come back to the hobby and all I here is pc...

    Right now I have a Coral life light strip with 2 white, 2 actinic, and lunar lights. I also have 2 250W MH's. Its about time to buy new PC bulbs and I was wandering if I really need to run them with the halides. Other than the cool dusk look in the evening is there any benefit to the actinic...

    Hello there. I have a 55 Gallon glass tank overflowing to a wet dry sump. In my sump I have a coralife super skimmer that outlets into my home made refugium. I have ran an overflow back from the refugium to the sump in case the return pump cannot keep up with the skimmer pump but really they...

    OK, I am really ticked off with my LFS and how they sold me the wrong lighting 8 months ago with my anemone. I guess I will ebay my current light and buy a MH. But, after reading some old posts on lighting and internet articles, I am still clueless. People get one K rating with T-5 lights or...
