    I'm building a DIY led from rapid led using Cree bulbs. So I plan to use 15 cool white (6000k) 10 neutral white (5650k) 10 royal blue (460 Nm) for a 55 gallon should I up the led number or keep it the way it is. FYI might be a sps dominate tank.

    OK...I have a 180 gallon SPS reef. I had a litter of Labrador Retriever puppies and let them out of the cage in the garage, where my sump is, to feed. The little angels pulled a cord and slid a power strip into my sump. I ended up having a major bleaching event. This happened about 6 weeks...

  12. SPS Coral Forum
    My search into putting some type of SPS coral selection together is to be of some rather difficulties due to that the coral I thought to had selected, could or will be of some different SPS coral. Common names isn't the way in a persons search in this, and one cannot follow the data giving at...
