    Just thought I would share since I cleaned it up and took a pic. :D I did remove some coralline from the over flow on the shot. I will also get a new shot once I clear out some stuff and clean it up better tomorrow. I set up a new frag tank so I could unjam the jammed tank! LOL! :D

    Hey everyone, I'm helping fix this 8' beast of a tank for a local hospital's radiation clinic. The tank is only a year old, but they have been feeding frozen food 2x/day, and now they have all kinds off algae issues.

    We are looking at new bulbs for our aquarium. We have 4-36 watt compact flourescent (2 actinic, 2 daylight, all came with the fixture) and 2-48" VHO actinics in a 72 gallon bowfront tank. The VHOs are only 3 months old so shouldn't need replacement yet, but the others are hitting a bit over 8...

    Hey guys here are some pics of my 65g. I'm running a 250MH 20K with a pair of super actinic VHOs, an ASM G4 Plus skimmer, a custom sump and the tunze 6080. I don't think I have much room left, I'm thinking of upgrading to a 120, using the same skimmer just upgrading to a second 250w and two 4ft VHOs

    I'm adding some actinics to my system since my 15k's aren't quite as blue as I want. I'm trying to figure out which would work out best, T5's or VHO's? I'll be using an icecap 660 ballast so I can pretty much use either/or and since I'm just using them for actinics I would assume it doesn't...

    OK I know some of you thought it was sacrilege that I tore my 450-gallon system down. Numerous issues compiled and aided in the decision. First off was the system itself. I think anyone who builds their first dream system will tell you that a lot more thought went into building it than...
