After a year away from this hobby I decided to start up an old tank. Now that LEDs have become much more retail friendly, i wanted to integrate them into my system. Read along and enjoy the birth of my reef.

Looking good. Make sure to keep those GSP separated from the other rocks, unless you want them taking over. This would solve the problem of the firefish jumping...
