    Hi, I am interested in doing a 80 gallon (48"l x 24"w x 16"h) rimless build using a ghost overflow. The existing deep blue professional 80 gallon rimless is perfect, except for the fact that it only comes reef-ready. They make a standard 80 gallon that is not reef ready but it is also not...

    I've found this website: http://www.buildmyled.com/custom-led-strip/ It looks totally legit and has gotten rave reviews. I want a 48" fixture (or maybe 2, depending). I want enough power to grow LPS and softies and some of the less demanding SPS corals. Or possibly this light...

This tank is a converted planted tank and...
