    I have a 65g tank with 2 165w black box leds lighting it. I came across a deal I couldn't refuse and aquired a vho hood with an ice cap 660 ballast. Question is would it be worth it to retro fit the led and t5 into a canopy, and what bulbs would you suggest.?

    Currently i have a 55gal reef set up with mainly button polyps, gsps, shrooms, feather dusters, and some pipe organs. I was running a coralife 48" power compact fixture with 2- 10k 55w and 2- actinic 65w bulbs. This setup didnt seem to have any light depth at all to it and that crisp clean and...

    Hey guys! I broke out my old quad T5 fixture that was in the attic. I wanted to add it to my Current USA Orbit Marine LED. So I could add a little kick to the LEDs, for some extra PAR. The Orbit Marine fits perfectly in the middle of my old T5 fixture. I have room for two T5 bulbs(one on each...

    Hi, a family member has recently given me a light fixture for my 20 gallon long which is currently just a plain fowlr. This fixture is a T5ho Quad 30" 6500K and gives off 96 total watts.

    I have a 75 gallon tank which I JUST started. It has around 100lb of live rock in the tank, and the cycling is underway. Currently I have a custom built lighting system with 6 t5s, 2 blue, 4 white. Not configurable, so I'm getting rid of it. Question is, with my 75 gallon tank I've decided 48"...

    I have been running DIY LED's on my 40 breeder for about a year now, but I am having an issue that others have where corals grow but lose color or fade.

    I am new to the saltwater thing. I ended up going with a LED light for my 40 gallon breeder tank. I have heard some people say that some corals prefer and thrive better with the T5. Which corals would do best for a LED?

    I've got 36 inch T5's on my ten gallon tank(standard dimension). Clearly the lights are designed for a bigger tank, but I got the t5 ballast for an absolute steal, so what can you do. I can hang ballast, but right now I'm just using the "little spacer legs" and the legs are resting on the top...

    So, as our name states, we are broke college students with an unfortunate obsession with this expensive hobby. We're relatively new to it... Lots of experience with fresh/brackish water aquariums, but this is obviously a lot different. Anyhoo... New tank. It's been running since July and it's...
