    So, I was looking to upgrade my lights and was thinking about getting Sunpod HQI. Should I get 150watt or 250w? Tank is 25" tall and 30" long. (55 gallons) And how good is this light? Would 250w heat the water too much?

    Alright, so tax returns are right around the corner! This year its going to be a 120g 48x24x24 double cube lol, afterall that is why I claim Single 0 all year long lol. I love the depth of my current 24x24x24 cube, but I dislike how its not long enough. I think the 120 will solve that, while...

    Hi Guys: I've been living a broken record, but have totally lost control of my tank in the last 6 months, to the point where the hobby is no longer enjoyable. I think all of this started when I followed some friendly advice and removed some live rock from the sump and put it into the main tank...

    Where is a good place to buy a 175W MH ballast? I just need the ballast nothing else. Or if some one has one I have some corals I can trade. Or equipment I can trade as well. Thanks

    Well, it was that time of year again to replace the bulbs. The system is a 6' Hamilton Technologies hood running 3 175w SE bulbs and two VHO's. I had run Ushio 10k in the past, but last year used Aqualine 10k. Between the two, there seemed to be very little differance in growth of my softy tank...

    I've been seeing these, I have been seeing 150W 50K DE Iwasaki bulbs. Anyone else?

    After years of telling people that polyp extension was not always a function of feeding, you finally got some backup.

    I have a IC ballast wired for the Iwasaki bulbs. Are there any other bulbs that I can run on it? I want something more blue. Thought about sending it in to get rewired, but it costs almost as much as I paid for the ballast.

    If I haven't worn you out, here's some lighting questions on my new set up, (attached)... Do you think 3x250 MH, 2x72"VHO & moonlights are a good mix? I was thinking of just getting one of the complete retro kits like the 72 inch Aqualight Pro Retrofit Kit, but I've never used PC. Are those...

    When you use MH lighting do you need actinic? How are these placed on the tank? Are they suspended to reduce the heat up of the water? Are you using a glass top or leaving it open when using MH? Does anyone have some pictures? I am thinking of getting some for my 72 Bow. Can...
