Depends on what brand they are I guess... way back when I had the FNI T5s and moved to the ATI bulbs I was converted to a brand name bulb buyer for life. There is a huuuge difference between the two lol

Thanks! I wish I could take credit for it but coastie put it together. I just sat there and handed him the rock lol. This may be the first tank I never re-scape though lol!


If I don't like the 20k bulbs that come with it I will be ordering some Phoenix 14Ks... definitely first choice.

Me too. That's why I think a 14k w/ more blue LEDs would be a cool combo... I really like the 20k look!

He assisted, we had discussions about where to place the rock. I was a lot of just sorta tossing this rock here and this rock there, not very technical.

When you think about it, the two island look may be the easiest in terms of actually throwing it together lol.

Think of how happy she is in the 90 she went to though!

They are probably my favorite wrasses lol. I would have kept her in a heartbeat if she wasnt going to get so big.

I want the island look for the openness look of it as well as isolating an RBTA for the clowns

TBH I like the "box of rocks" look, but wanted to give this a shot. I'm thinking of putting something in the middle but IDK what

If you could find the right rock a bridge with an acan garden in just the foreground of it might be cool.

I been finding good pieces of lace rock for a bridge but it don't flow with my Fiji. Acan gardens are sweet.

Haha, we'll see what happens. I think a montipora and acan only tank would be cool, for some reason I like montis more than Acros.
