    XM lights that is. It was getting close to time to change my MH bulbs. I originally bought a Hamilton Technology retrofit that includes 3 250W MH and 2 140W VHO actinics. I was never really happy with the color of the tank, which is a 180 gallon mostly sps tank, nor the growth rate of my sps...

    I've read that using ozone will make your protein skimmer more efficient at removing contaminants, but was never sure whether that meant an increase in the volume collected in the cup per day, or a change in the waste appearance or composition... or what. I've recently introduced ozone into my...

    Everyone. I have called every dive shop from Hilton Head to Brunswick. No one can handle a group of our size. The deal that was listed before is like this. They are a fishing charter - basically a 13 boat party boat. They make their money fishing. So the costs are a bit higher. I am fine with...

    I'm still learning about starting a reef. Right now I'm trying to figure out what lights to get. I've been looking at 48" 4 65W VHO with lunar or a MH. I don't know anything about the MH. Can someone give me advise?

    I respectfully request a copy of the current bylaws be posted as a sticky on the members only forum. I have been unsuccesful through multiple past attemps to get access to the members section of the ARC web page where I assume the bylaws are posted so I would like to be able to view them within...

    I have one person that has decided not to respond to any email or PM's about the skimmer he was supposed to purchase from me for the powerbuy. I originally took the skimmer to the April meeting, he didn't show. I contacted him and he said he would come by and pick it up. He never did. I took...

    The only possible issue I can see is if any of the bulbs can be bought cheaper over the internet. I did check "hello Lights" and the only one that got beat was the 6500K Iwasaki in 250W, all of the others were higher. Dougs price is $63.00 and Hello lights price is $59.00...
