Welcome Aquaman... are you Jakes buddy with the Tattoo Shop? If so then you bought my skimmer =). If not then wrong guy lol... Anyhow welcome to the site.

If only someone would be looking to sell off a 36" T-5 setup... Seems everyone only sells 48" setups. I wonder if I could just cut 12" off the bulbs and call it good hehe.

Since I bought the 30" literally 2 weeks ago from today and I have only run it for about 10hrs I would like around $130 for it. I purchased it for $200 up in Roch at Exotic world of fish. There is nothing wrong with it. Perfect working condition and I still have the box!! Let me know.

Haha, yea idk if sawing it off would work?!? haha....anyway. I am purchasing the skimmer/sump from a guy named Josh who is located in LaCrosse.

I'm with you on that one Aaron... If it's that new they might be willing to just take it back. Call them and see if they can work something out with you. Who knows it surely can't hurt to try.

The price would be more but it is a better solution.

Hi how much for the t-5 48 " setup

Tim
I am asking $180 for the T5's. It is an awesome light. I just want to go to metal halides. The light cost me $300 at the store. It's 1.5 months old. So there is still a lot of time left on the bulbs!! Let me know what you think.


Thanks,

Matt Golden

On the T-5 fixture when you say "true actinic" are you talking the actinic 03 420nm or the actinic 03 460nm bulbs? The 460 nm bulbs are way blue'r than that of the 420 nm bulbs but, the 420 bulbs are more of a typical option unless requested. The reason I'm asking is because even though it's too long I might be tempted to put this over my 70 gallon unit as I want to make it into a frag tank and obviously standard pc 2 bulb fixture will not make that happen.

What are you going to use for a sump now that the model 2 will be gone?

He has either a 55 gallon or a 75 gallon tank (can't remember which it was) that he already had that Matt and I talked him into using in place of the acrylic thing he was going to use due to the chance of a power outage overflowing the unit.

Speaking of sumps though... Josh did you ever put any baffles into the sump or are you going to try to run it the same way I run mine w/out anything in there. I had baffles origonally but, removed them when I found them to be more of a hastle than a benefit.

Yeah 75 gallon tank will be moved downstairs as the sump. No baffles yet Jason, I figured I would try without first to see how it goes.

Matt, I sent ya a PM about the other stuff but I thought $175 for everything?

Josh....so what are you going to have for sale in the next week? I will be in lacrosse picking up my stand next weekend. If I have enough money I will prolly contact you to see what you have on hand and what you are willing to part with. Let me know when it will be available though. $100 for the smaller sump and $175 for the larger setup??

My tank is cloudy!! I checked my levels and my nitrate was high, so I did a water change. I exchanged 15 gallons and used RO water to do so. I've been reading and came across 'algone'. Should I look into that? Wait it out? What should I do? Tank has been up and running for a few months now.
