    250 DE MH & T5 Lighting For Sale Got some more stuff to get rid of as I get closer to full dis-mount. These are both 2 years old. Asking $300 + shipping for the pair and you'll need bulbs. I have bulbs to test fire the ballasts but you wouldn't want to use them (you can have them). (2) Ice Cap...

    The other day I was rescaping my tank and my dripping wet have brushed one of the MH reflectors. I thought I felt a slight buzz the figured it was just the sharp edge of the reflector scraching my hand. Well a last night I was trying to catch my Clarkii to put him in another tank and the net...

    ... and I need some expertise. So here's the deal, for 2 reasons I want to grow frags in my sump. A) I'd like to not ugly up the display with my classy frag rack, 2) my pH is pretty low and I'd like some reverse photoperiod, and D) it'd be a nice supplement of tank funds if I can get some...

    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...

    Anyone here use 400w HQI's? I am looking at getting 2 pendants for my lighting and was wondering what reflectors they are using and how bad the heat from these things were.

    I am building a new canopy and getting close to the finish line. I have always used VHO bulbs and mounting them was a no brainer. When you mount a reflector like the Reef Optix 2(13" long), do you mount the reflector x amount of inches from the side or do you go by the bulb instead and have...

    I find my current sump design lacking for the way my tank is set up, and I'm half way decided to build a new one. I'm not fully committed, but I've gone as far as to begin sketching some stuff to see how it would fit, and I'm interested in getting ideas to help ensure I won't be building another...

    I'm thinking about setting up a seperate tank for my corals, & letting my 125 gal. tank be fish only. That way I can keep fish that couldn't keep in a reef, & keep the reef costs a little more manageable. I have a 38 gal. AGA laying around I can use for the display. I'm thinking about using a 10...
