    Check out those pics. Do you see any color difference? I hope so cuz I sure do. It would be one thing if it were slight but that is pretty drastic. The left side looks horribly yellow. This is the second set of 400w XM 10k's that I have tried with the exact same results. I have swapped the...

  9. Lava Coralline

    Is this coralline? I have it on a few spots in my tank. I'd think it was a sponge if it wasn't completely flat against the rock (like Coralline). Really cool looking though. Any clues?

    I'm in ! I finally go the ok from the wife to begin the conversion of a hallway closet to my "Fish Crevice". I would call it a room but since it backs up to the bottom of the stairs its more like a crevice than room ... this room is going to be built on a real tight budget ( I have a little...

    Ok I need to replace one of my 175w bulbs. Anyone ever buy the cheap one's on ebay? I have Mogul sockets. This is the first time I've bought bulbs is there anything else I should know? I plan on getting 10000K and I will probably replace both the 175 bulbs at the same time, the center 250w seems...

    I have the canopy set on top of my tank and all the lights are mounted in it but the wiring has me totally lost. I am by no means an electrician and I have no wire nuts (I think they are called) that I need to connect the ballast to the lights. I have all the wires run through the PVC from the...
