    I'm looking for anyone that has a PFO 250w HQI ballast that I can use for doing some testing. I'm not getting the PAR I want out of my existing lights, and instead of replacing my whole lighting setup, I'd like to see how much more I can get out of a magnetic ballast vs. my current Icecap...
  3. Substrate Free Tank Husbandry (Bare bottomed)
    In January last year, I set up my 120-gallon reef tank from scratch using some of the standard recommended procedures for setting up bare-bottom tanks. This included things like cooking the rock, getting an oversized skimmer, using eductors on the sump return lines and using cuttingboard to...

    Hi I just joined this forum yesterday. I've never been in a forum before so take it easy on me.:rolleyes: I haven't bought anything yet and don't intend to do so for awhile. That is the first thing i discovered is it can be very exspensive. So to save myself from wasting a lot of money and...

    Alright well I have ALWAYS run halides since I can even remember but recently have been doing quite a bit of reading and research on T5's.

    So my husband and I finally set up our new webcam. I'm trying it out and would love your input. Anyone can check it out and move the camera around as they choose. We are still working out the kinks and right now it's dark here so may not look the best. Plus the lights turn off in an hour or...

    Can a tank with corals (mixed) live on just MH? When I first got started I was told the MH, were just to excite the coral to display their polyps. Just to turn on the MH for an hour midday, the rest of the day should be actinics. How would pendant MH work? Are they left on all day? Does...
