    I have halides 2- 250ws over a 75 g. tank. I think that is plenty of light to keep things going, but I'd like to add some lights for actinic supplementation & for sun rise/set cycle. Anyway, what's your vote & why - PC, VHO or T5... Just really going for the best look here... Thanks!

    This is part 2 of the "Clownfish friend or foe" The other thread was getting too large and could potentially cause issues with server performance. Glad to see you here! Post away. :D Whiskey
  4. Substrate Free Tank Husbandry (Bare bottomed)
    My issue is as follows: Most of my SPSs are very lightly colored (popular!), BUT, I have to clean my glass from diatoms every couple/few days, and recently, it has gotten so bad that diatoms are now growing on my very faded monti. caps. So: what is wrong? If I had dark corals, I'd know too...
  5. Reef Build-Off 2007
    Figured I would jump on this as well since I just started to set up another tank. This is going to be a 140 gallon in wall display in my basement. At this point all I have done is biult the stud wall where the tank will be. I will post a pic tonight of the location. Mike

    Well, it was that time of year again to replace the bulbs. The system is a 6' Hamilton Technologies hood running 3 175w SE bulbs and two VHO's. I had run Ushio 10k in the past, but last year used Aqualine 10k. Between the two, there seemed to be very little differance in growth of my softy tank...

    I am thinking about getting a used 75gal. I intend it to be a reef tank. The only thing stopping me is the lighting. I really want to do some Ice Cap VHO's, but I don't want that purple look. Does anybody have any pics of a system using VHO's that doesn't have that purple look to it?

    I'm going to be setting up a 120 for discus in the near future (blasphemer, I know!) In order to use my old reef tank, I would have to remove the overflow (my preference) and cap off a couple holes. Since the tank is already reef ready, I figured I'd see if anyone was interested in it before I...
