    I have a 190g reef, which is fairly empty, but will house primarily SPS, but others as well. Ok, so Ive been debating this lately... Which would you choose? 1) A PFO Magnetic 2x250w ballast. Its been in use since around april, so its pretty dang new. The unfortunate thing about the ballast...

    I've poked around local forums for info, but no one has a good enough answer for me I guess. I am upgrading to a 180 starphire, eurobraced tank and I want to go with halides. I use T5HO on my 90 and get good growth and color, but I want to tinker and play around with different options. I...

    Hey all, I have a 29 gallon SPS reef that I have been running a 150 w PFO mini pendant with PFO HQI ballast. I have been running a Phoenix 14k bulb, and was pretty happy with it. However, I was looking to get more color out of my corals. After looking around at a lot of pictures and...

    OK - I have made up my mind. I am going to resurrect the 58G tank. I tried to sell it and I heard every story in the book why people cant buy it after they agreed to. It has to be a sign. Plus I have most of everything so it wont cost nearly as much as a larger new tank. SO! Here is what I...

    hey all, I am having some trouble with my 29 gallon. I have cyano bad. It started as a small patch. I blew it off and syphoned, and it came back stronger and worse. much more spread out. So, I did a really thorough cleaning. I scrubbed it off the rocks and syphned everything. it has come...

    I'm in the process of building a 150gal reef tank. I'm working on the lighting fixture and the top cabinet. The question that I have is, is there a general rule on how high above the tank I should mount the lighting fixture. The fixture itself is 2- 250 watt mh, 10000k, with 2 48" vho super...

    OK I know some of you thought it was sacrilege that I tore my 450-gallon system down. Numerous issues compiled and aided in the decision. First off was the system itself. I think anyone who builds their first dream system will tell you that a lot more thought went into building it than...

  17. General Reef Discussion
    I am in the process of building a new tank. I love my 75gal, but want a new tank focusing on SPS. I have a 250W Mogul Halide with 2x48W T-5 supplement. When I build my new tank I would like to get rid of the T5's and perhaps upgrade to a 400W ballast/ bulb. My question is this...are actinic...
