    I Have a BC29, recently bought a nova extreme 4x24w T5s. I was wanting to get some better bulbs besides the stock current bulbs. So geisman found me. My plan was to get a bulb a week in order to acclimate my corals to the newer spectrums. Today I picked up bulb #1, geisman...

    So when I bought my anemone 8 months ago he was translucent but very bulbous. Now he is about 20% bigger, brown, but his arms are stringy. He eats well when fed ( 2-3 times a weak a piece of silverslide ) Now my question is this. I currently have this setup for lighting: I have two sets of...

    I have heard that the DE HQI bulb output is better than the SE mogul style bulbs. For my 55g tank, in which I am planning for the most light craving inverts, would you use the 150w HQI setup or a 175w mogul base setup? I am building the lighting myself in the hood that I just made. I was going...

    Well, while I was playing with all the bulb combos on my tank today I realized I have seen a lot of threads with people asking for advice on T5 bulb combintions, so I though this would be helpful 2 Super Actinics 1 Pure Actinic 1 6600 1 10k 1 14k 2 Super Actinics 2 Pure Actinics 1 6600 1 12k 2...

    So I was sitting at home waiting for a sofa to be delivered when I got bored and started swaping bulbs around in my fixtures. The first picture is my old bulb configuration and the second is my favorite new configuration, although it's not that different. I can't make up my mind so I figured...

    I am selling my nano. It is a good tank. It was up for just over a year and everything flurished. At least it did until I went out to Jacksonville FL for 7 weeks. It wasn't taken care of when I was gone (water wasn't topped off and it was over fed). I lost a lot of hard coral and a few softs...

    I am selling my Nano. The tank was up for just over a year. It did well until I went out to Jacksonville FL for 7 weeks. It wasn't taken care of when I was gone. Anyway, I am moving soon so I don't want to start up another tank now. Here are the specs: 13 gallons - has built in sump along...

    I am debating whether I should frag my green toadstool leather coral or not and thought I would seek all of your opinions. That is right, your opinion will count in this matter as your vote will help determine if I frag this coral or not. If I understand what I have read in various places...

    I'm adding some actinics to my system since my 15k's aren't quite as blue as I want. I'm trying to figure out which would work out best, T5's or VHO's? I'll be using an icecap 660 ballast so I can pretty much use either/or and since I'm just using them for actinics I would assume it doesn't...

    I have a 48" 90gal glass tank with softies, LPS, and 1 SPS birdsnest frag. Currently I only have 2x65w 10,000k PC and 2x65w actinic PC. I'm trying to decide what the best Metal Halide setup would be for my tank. Price IS an issue for me but I still want a quality setup so I need to find a...

    Well, all. I think it's going to be the Aquactinics TX5 with 5 bulbs for right now. This should fare well for a 21" high 55 gal tank. I can't fit 6 bulbs, so it's going to be 5. I think it's going to be 3 bulbs @11K or 12K, and 2 actinic. Unless it would be wiser to go with 3 actinic and 2...
