    You know - I am still debating on the 28G Nanocube or a bigger tank. I know I wil lget bored of the Nanocube eventually since it can only house maybe 2-3 small fish and a few corals. I confirmed the electrical issue will cost allot to do and its probably out of the question. With a TV, DVD...

    I am looking into purchasing the 3 400 watt metal halide retros that otolith is selling... up until now I had thought I would go with 3 250 watt setups...... the tank, again, is a 180 gallon, 72" X 24" X 24"....my questions are this.... which would be better for this size tank... and I know you...

    Still in the planning stages for the 180... the stand is built in the wall in the basement and the tank is sitting on it. Just trying to decide on a few things and then I will begin its set up. So, what I am wanting to know for now is ... I have only had experience with single end mogul...

  7. SPS Coral Forum
    So I've been running my 10k Ushios (250w HQI DE on Reef Optix III reflectors) for about 10 months now, and I am about to purchase a second unit for the other 1/2 of my tank (only had MH over the side of the tank w/ SPS, but I am now going 100% sps). I also run 2x 110w 48" URI VHO actinics...

    While I haven't completely figured out my plumbing/noise yet (please see my other thread), I am continuing to attempt to finish the rest of my setup. I just finished putting together my new table saw/router table allowing me to move to putting together my canopy :D. I will be attempting to...

    Most of these pictures at the start of this will be in the same order as my other thread but the club has migrated so here we go. I bought this tank over a year ago, the same order from Rob's that Lageo04's tank came in on. Looking back, I'm glad that I didn't rush to set it up and have it going...
  10. 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...

    Ok I am thinking about switching over from 260w pc lighting, to 2x250 MH on my 75gal, so I can keep some SPS corals. Some questions that I have are, what is the difference between the HID bulbs compared to HQI? Also I will be making my own canopy and need to know how high off the top the lights...

    So I have already convinced a few of my relatives to give me some cash instead of the usual ugly sweater, in order for me to buy some halides. I currently have an IC 660 with four 54w T5's. I am going to upgrade to Halides with this Xmas money and I am looking for some recomendations. I...

    I'm wanting to add some more color to my SPS corals and I know that a 20k setup will help. I currently have a 250w 10k Ushio DE on my 50G tank now and I'm thinking about adding another DE setup to it. I was wondering what people think of the Aqualine 20k DE bulbs and if it will benifit me or...
