After getting everything back together it overheated again, so once again I tore it apart. This time I noticed that the...

    Hey guys, I bought a second hand maxspect razor from a friend of mine last week, and have been running them on my 80g tank. They worked excellently, and I've seen my friend running these lights for the past 2 years without any issue at all. I trust my friend completely, and know for fact he...

    So I primarily want to have easy, beginner types of coral in my tank. Things like Frogspawn, Zooas, Mushrooms, etc. I have a 93 gallon cube, with a Reefbreeders photon LED lighting. I can't seem to get any growth on my zoa frags or any other "easy" coral. What should I be checking on?

    Hello fellow reefers, past reefers and future reefers alike, I have a simple question(s) for you. Would 6 watts be enough for a 2.5 gallon aquarium with no SPS (mostly if not only zoas, mushrooms and softies)? And has anybody had experience with this light and/or know if it is possible to...
