    granted...I havent been here much (or at all)either...but looking at the last couple months of threads here, there has been very little activity. Whats up with that?? The BB tank fad must be over eh????

    Just interested to see what people are running here. I run a PFO mini pendant with a 250w coralvue electronic ballast. Currently have an xm 10k but am thinking about switching to phoenix 14k eventually. I used to supplement with 2x75w vho actinics along with my halide, but got rid of those...

    hey guys where do you take your cf bulbs for disposal? I wanna do the right thing and dispose of them properly rather than pollute our ground water. Not just my cf's on my nano but T5 and halide bulbs too.
  5. For Sale /Trade or Buy
    Ok, the time has come and I can't hold on to these tanks I love any longer if I'm going to get moved to Canada. I'm going to start with selling the LR, then the fish and critters ('cause I can't catch them with the rock in the way and I don't have a large container to move anything into)...

    We are looking at new bulbs for our aquarium. We have 4-36 watt compact flourescent (2 actinic, 2 daylight, all came with the fixture) and 2-48" VHO actinics in a 72 gallon bowfront tank. The VHOs are only 3 months old so shouldn't need replacement yet, but the others are hitting a bit over 8...

    If anyone out there has 2 extra VHO actinic bulbs and endcaps they wouldn't mind loaning out for a test, please let me know. I'm trying to see if I have enough room in my canopy for VHO actinics along side of my MH's, or if I'm going to have to get 2 T5HO actinic bulbs instead. If anyone...

    Hello, I am in the process of researching metal halide lighting options for my 75 gallon that has a canopy. I was wondering if anyone has a similiar size aquarium and canopy if they send a picture so that I can see how you set it up (lights, fans, etc.) And what kind of lighting you have. I...

    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...

    January 25, 26, 27, 28, all day, every day. Everything inside this tank must go. Fish, hermits, rocks (LOTS of life on the rocks!), starfish, shrimp, sand, sump rocks and sand, AND the skimmer. The skimmer is a 41" Beckett. It has ports for two becketts, I only have one running. Works...

    So... With the halide fixture I am purchasing from Joe, how much of an increase in my energy bill should I expect to see? This is the 48" aqualight this has two 250 watt bulbs and one 150 watt. Currently I am running a 36" Nova Extreme T-5 using 4X39W

    58G or a 120G - Looking at total maintenance and upkeep? Besides the fact that the 120G would be more water/salt how much harder/easier would it be over the 58G. I still have not sold my 58G and really dont want to buy the new tank without selling the old one first but before I dump the...
  20. General Reef Discussion
    The lights are on the way and should be in next week. I went with a four bulb 36" Tek Light. My question for all of you is.... what combination of bulbs should I go with? I've never run T5's.
