    Hello, I received my first LiveAquaria order today to supplement my clean up crew, add a couple fish, and a few Peppermint shrimp that my LFS hasn't been able to get. (Aiptasia battle). They have apparently given me a mistaken bonus of a Bulb Anemone as well. I've done the acclimation per...

    TRT, What is your favorite lighting you have had experience with? I want to get high quality lighting for my 75g build. I am seriously considering getting two ecotech radions but the cost would be very high. Might do the ATI Sunpower 48" with 8 bulbs, but want to try high end LED's.

    Hey everyone, I'm new to Metal Halides, but not to SW fish keeping. I have a FOWLR tank, that's all I've ever had. I bought a tank, and was given a 48 Inch Hamilton Technology Metal Halide and T12 System. I know it's an older system, but since I've never kept any Anemones yet, I was going to...

    My 29 gallon reef tank is almost 5 months old now. Right now I have several softies and some hammers, but I plan on getting more LPS and perhaps even a SPS or 2. Soon enough it'll be time to change out the Aquaticlife T5-HO bulbs that came with the 4-bulb fixture. I want to replace them with...

    I'm pretty sure that I have a hitchhiker anemone; it is called a light bulb anemone on this website (look at #14). Does anyone have any information on this anemone? I can't find anything on them on the internet.

    Hi all, Plan to have 19" refugium in my new 200L ish sump for 700L reef tank. Anyone recommend a nice and easy clip on refugium light? Ideally needs to be clip on, the right Kelvin to grow chaetomorpha, low on power consumption, long lasting, not too expensive. I'm based in the UK so no...

    Hey RT members, I just got a RBA today and it has some white spots around the base of the tentacles. Is this the early stage of bleaching? I am pretty sure my lights are better than the little biocube at the LFS. This is what it looked like in the store...

    ok, so I have had the 72 Inch 8x39 Watt AquaticLife T5 HO Light Fixture w/ 6 Lunar LEDs set up on my 125G for 10 months now and I believe it's time to replace some bulbs.

    I have recently bought some live rock, and I have become aware that there are several small red-brown bulb tipped anemones all over the tank. I have added some pictures to help get them recognized.

    It is time to replace my power compact bulbs. Currently I have 2 55 watt 10K/420nm and 1 55 watt 10k/460nm. I wanted opinions on what others prefer. I like the deeper blue 460NM actinic. Trying to decide between 2:1 1:1 or 1:2 10K/actinic.

    Hi, I'm on the verge of starting my very first saltwater aquarium! It's all set-up and I'm getting the shipment of liverock/sand and cleanup crew tomorrow, but now I am wondering about some non-essential stuff. I am under the assumption that lunar lighting is really neat and aesthetically...

    Recently one of my 250w bulb's burnt out, I run 3 over my 125g. When i took it out the end was pretty fried. I Just bought a whole bunch of stuff from someone on craigslist including a couple 250w bulbs he claimed were 2 months old. Well the bulbs seem to flicker a bit and change from one color...

    Can you combine a blue plus, actinic, aquablue special and purple plus bulbs on your tank, or will they clash with each other? Also, are all the bulbs supposed to be on at the same time?
