What brands, what colors/ k, and the configuration( 10,000k, Actinic, 10,000k etc.) I recently bought a new fixture (off craigslist) and am not happy with the color and quality of the bulbs its seems washed out...

    Hey everyone, I was wondering what you guys do that have barebottoms. Like do you guys just let the bottom of the tank be see through, do you pain the bottom white, paint it black? I just went barebottom and I was wondering what you guys do, I don't really like the straight see through look...
  6. Skimmers & other filtration
    Hey Guys, I am going to replace my current skimmer, and I am looking for suggestions. I have a 55gallon tank and want an HOB skimmer. Do you have any suggestions? I think my current one (ESHOPPS) is just a bad manufacture. People I have talked to have never had any problems with it, but...
  7. Tank Specs
    I am in the midst of setting up my mr. aqua 12 gallon long with a 29 gallon sump/fuge (20GL seemed too small).

  10. The THINK Tank
    Was curious to know what some of you believe to be the perfect Reef Tank? Is it a 1000 gallon monster tank with as many Corals and inverts you can get away with? Or how about a biotope stocked with only species from a certain region? Maybe it is a Nano with one piece of Coral that you can...

    Good afternoon TRT!!! Just wanted to bring up a topic so stay with me for a moment. I wont mention any member names or any information that will lead to a popularity contest. But instead maybe just a learning exp for all. A while back I was on a debate in the forums and a user posted what...
  12. Lighting
    I have an opportunity to buy a used 48" Solaris LED fixture. He says it is about 4 years old and it is in good condition except that 3 out of 100 LEDS are not working. I can buy it for under $500, but because the manufacturer is out of business, I am concerned with the reliability of these...
  13. General Reef Discussion
    I am considering this fixture. I am still only a year into the hobby with a standard 55 and a 150 tall. My resources are very limited but I just got some Blasto's from a friend and want to try some zoa's. Would this be okay for a starter @ $110? I have VERY limited resources. No...
