    Ok guys I'm new at this and need a little help. A few months back I setup my tank (75gal) with the marineland t5 48" lights which only had one cord and didnt like it afterward. Next I got a coralife lunar Aqualight, Its ok but just not that much light. If I ever decide to upgrade to a larger...

    I saw a post where Marineduud said a Workhorse ballast will replace the ballast for dual actinics (130 W) in the 48 inch Outer Orbit 1042. I went to the Light Bulb Depot in Jax, but now I have them and see there is an extra wire (four reds and one yellow). Is there anyone that can tell me how to...

    I am thinking about getting a 65 gallon tank. The tank is 48 inches long. The light I have now is a current outer orbit. It is the older one with one 150 mh and i think 2 96 watt pc's. Will this set up work with a 48 inch tank? I am hoping to have a few sps and an anemone. Thanks

    I'm building a 26x26x20 tank for the purpose of housing a carpet and a pair of clowns. The system will be ties into my 180's sump. I'm probably going to go with a Current Outer Orbit fixture. Should I go 150 or 250? I know carpets love the light but its a pretty small tank. What ya think?

Equipment: 70g Tech Oceanic Tank Octopus Extreme Model 160 Skimmer (Pre-Ordered, should be...

    Alright so I should lay out what we got instead of just harassing people. There's the 75 gallon, about 15g sump. Well, it's not really a sump I guess, just a fuge with a place to put the skimmer. The 75 has about 100 lbs of LR (about...), corner drilled to the under stand fuge. The fuge is...

    Hello all, We have a 450g reef and are currently filling up a 360g predator tank to move the animals out of a 150. They both feed into a 300g sump/fuge/skimmer tub. We're running two Euro-Reef RS-250 skimmers. Nitrates creep up to 20 sometimes but a 150g water change takes care of that...

    I have had this bubble coral in the attached pic for about 2 weeks now. It is usually 2x as large and looked like Big Fluffy White Grapes and you could not even see the rock that it sat upon. Two days ago it just suddenly shrank up? It looks a little better today but not nearly the way it did...
