    What would be a good height to hang my LED lights from the surface of the water? The tank is a 72g bowfront 48Lx13Wx22H. I have two Acan A1040AC-12B. On the fixture it says 45 watts. Thank you!

    After a month and a half of doing my research on what lighting system to put on my tank (65 gal 32x18x24)I have come to the conclusion to go with the Photon 32 by Reef Breeders. I almost bought some black boxes which I have seen in person on tanks well over 125gal to 350gals with the black...

    Hey all, I'm guessing this isn't a big thing - but of course, I guess I'm wondering what I don't know that I don't know.... I took out my 5 bulb, individual reflector T5HO set up with 3midday, 1actinic and one blue+ and replaced with two AI Sol units about a foot above waterline. I have them...

    Hello - I'm excited about getting LED's set up over my 75 gallon tank (4 AI Sol Blue) - I know it takes a couple of months of ramp up to let the corals adjust from the 5 bulb T5 set up I had - and I don't suspect with that kind of coverage I'll be running them at full blast (I'm still...

    Hi Everyone - I'm new here so sorry if this subject has already been discussed. I looked and I couldn't find anything. My question is this: I'm new to reef keeping but not to aquariums in general. I have the basics down but I've been out of saltwater for about 7 years and it seems that a lot...

    Hey everybody! The 33 gal hex is looking pretty great so far, so far I've got jasmine polyps, GSP, a variety of zoas, pulsing xenia, anthelia, blue clove polyps, and a very fat duncan coral. Picked up my first fish last week (a black ocellaris female, she's adorable!) who has been very spunky...

    Question: I have a T5 HO light fixture that includes actinic and LED's. Should I be using all 3 light settings? (Day, mid-day, night) I've heard that the LED's don't really benefit anything and my coral's don't respond to it (except to retract / shrink). So here's the question... How harmful is...

    My build is coming slow, but starting to thaw out ;) So I decided to give the PAR38's from Ecoxotic a try. They suggested a minimum of 6-8 for a 60" tank . I am in receipt of my new lot of 6 PAR 38's. I hung a utility clamp on work light fixture over my 46g tank on one side and put one of the...
