I have unused brand new ATi aquablue special 48" T5HO bulb. I have receipt from MD and it arrived yesterday only. I didn't like too crisp white color so decided not going to use it.
price will be 15$, remember its brand new. if interested, call 904-240-4882.
I am upgrading tanks as you guys may or may not know. The 6x54w ATI Powermodule I just picked up a few months ago is going to have to go in favor of their 10x54w (30" wide tank). I am replacing it with exactly the same light but more bulbs... this may show how much I like this...
I have a 90 gallon tank and just purchased a copperbanded butterfly to get rid of aiptasia and because it's a beauty, anyways within a couple hours of indroduction I watched it eat 4 or 5 very small aiptasias but haven't seen him eat anymore since then, also, he has only eaten one or two items...
Well I haven't been here for a couple months as my internet is really really slow and I've been busy with work.
I am currently brainstorming over a new tank I will be setting up within the next two months as I will be back in the area in about a month. I'm planning on a 40 gallon...
will this light be enough to run my 75 gal tank

I now have a 24" coralife power compact and a 48" power compact, bt its time to replace bulbs.
is this enough for sps
Well, while I was playing with all the bulb combos on my tank today I realized I have seen a lot of threads with people asking for advice on T5 bulb combintions, so I though this would be helpful

Ok, so I am "allowed" to use my 180 in the living room. We've decided that the living room carpet can be sacrificed :) I've cleaned out the tank, here is a "before" picture.
I'll have to reinforce the stand and fix the canopy to open in the front. (stand and canopy I'm going to use aren't in the...

If you are in need of replacement bulbs, I highly recommend getting them from Deb at DIYREEF.com It's the second time I've gotten lights from her and each time she ships (I choose UPS Ground option), they arrive the next day! And the prices are reasonable too! But don't take my word for it...
So I just moved and I thought it would be a good time to upgrade:agree: Things have finally settled down so here are some pics of the tank, after I get the wires cleaned up I will post some pics of the euipment.
The new tank is a 125 long with a 60g sump, modified G3 skimmer, Octopus dual...

okay, time to edit my 1st post, and give some factual information, instead of me rambling and guessing at what i'll do.
the plan still remains that i'll be moving my 90 into this 24. but not everything will fit, ofcourse. most of the rock will be up for grabs :)...
No theme, just taking pictures. This one's doing pretty well, considering it was covered in redbugs a few months back.
I zoomed in on the purple rimmed cap. I can prove it!
I wished this milli grew quicker. I think the second picture was back in July.
This is the new walled...
Well, all. I think it's going to be the Aquactinics TX5 with 5 bulbs for right now. This should fare well for a 21" high 55 gal tank. I can't fit 6 bulbs, so it's going to be 5. I think it's going to be 3 bulbs @11K or 12K, and 2 actinic. Unless it would be wiser to go with 3 actinic and 2...
I bought 6 SPS frags over the weekend from my fellow reef friend Bogey (Deb)....of course I don't know what they are. I want to see how they do under my T5s and need to know a few things...
My water is good, just tested...
bought new in feb. 07. Comes with 2 ati aquablue, 1 ge 6500k, and one super actinic. looking for 200 dollars firm plus shipping if needed.
can entertain trades for MH equipment or a needlewheel skimmer.
