I thought the sapphire was an out of tank skimmer?

Sapphire fits right in Chamber 2. It takes up the whole chamber but fits perfectly without any mods.

the 9002 will allow you a media rack... I'm going to be running chemi-pure and purigen...and possibly turning chamber 1 into a fuge somehow... lol

I have it mounted on the wall between chambers 2 and 3. It's a magnetic mount so you can adjust to wherever you keep your water level.

The light are 20" apart exact. They fit perfect for a 29gallon biocube. There are 6 bulbs on the light 3 actinic and 3 day light and each bulb has its own individual reflector. They work very good for pretty much any coral Hard, Soft, Mushrooms, Zoos, and clams.

 

I bough the light from aquabuys.com

 

The light was 234.99 with free shipping

 

 

As for T5 lighting. If each bulb does not have its own individual reflector they wont be any better than power compacts. So u want to have very good reflectors.

 

I would highly recommend The Nova Extreme Pro...That's what I have.

 

Let me know if u have any more questions.

That light is a metal halide. They are good but they give off lots of heat. I live in Florida so I didnt want to take the chance with lots of heat. Metal halides also use more energy to use. T5's are more energy eficient.

 

As for protein skimmers. Im getting one next week. Its a Tunze 9002. If you don't have a protein skimmer I would do bigger water changes. Right now I dont have one so I do about 5 or 10 gallon water changes.
