    So Skeety ran a good thread for a 48" tank. So now, same question, but for a 36" tank. All the 36" hoods I see only have one MH DE bulb in them. I'd really like to have 2x150 plus some actinics. Someone at one of the LFS's near me said that there is one that has 2 in it, but it has to be...

    Well trying to improve my cooling abilities without dropping cash on a chiller I bought some new CPU fans yesterday to replace my standard ones from an old computer I had laying around. I bought vantec Tornados which are 92mm and 119CFM. Only problem is they are extremely loud. I think I...

    Currently working on a lighting hood for my 55 gal tank. Dimensions are 18" tall x 36" wide x 18" deep. Front will have a gap for the door about 12" x 30", maybe slightly larger, depends on how much fun I am having with the saw. Couple of thoughts: 1) I'm thinking it needs to be completely...

    I need to get a couple of fans into my canopy. Which ones are rated at the top side of the list, quiet, but affordable. (I'm not paying $60 each...that would fit the criteria of being not affordable) Second, what size would you recommend...3" or 4". I'm not running halides and never will with...

    Does anyone use metal halides without a chiller? As i get closer to getting good lighting, I am wondering if I should get a halide or just stick to my original plan of getting 200W of PC strips. I am worried that a halide will be too hot for my 29 gal.

    MH DIY hood I just wanted to throw a few things out here to get any comments, advice, cautions, etc... :D I just built a new hood to house a 250 watt MH and 2 55 watt PC actinic 03s. The hood will be cooled by a 4" variable speed Icecap fan (blowing in I think). A couple of questions: 1. I...

    Ok Everyone! I will be having 2 175MH 10,000k and at least 2 110 VHO actinics in my canopy. I will also be installing a fan and wondered about the location of the fan in the canopy. Would having it blow out from the top be better or blowing over the lights? Should the fan be located...

    I currently have a 75-Gallon reef tank with two VHO fluorescent lights powered by an Icecap ballast and supplemented with two normal output fluorescents for a total output of 300 watts. I’m thinking of converting over to metal halide. Specifically, two 175 watt 10,000 K and supplemented with...
