this tank sucks... took a leak in it one night when he was asleep.... bad choice though as the coral looooved it. jk, but def one of the the better biocubes ive seen. havent seen a spike in anything yet, nitrates at 5 (from all those snails that came in the sand?) and everything else at 0, ph at 8.3, dkh at 9, and dont know the salinity cause i need to borrow your refracto again (so much easier when i lived there). gonna hook the sump up sunday, so may need help troubleshooting. so if nothing changes within the next 2 or 3 weeks you can dump the niger off on me whenever you feel hes getting to be too much for your tank.

 

oh yeah you should make lxsbnz get you a dslr for xmas.... thatd be a kick ass present

asstastic, I just installed my barebones kit and WAS able to keep both of my new UVL PC-Rs as well. But I honestly cant tell a huge difference when the T5s are on with the PC-Rs. To me they just arent that bright. Suggestions?

i think my main thing is the actinic pc bulb i run with it off i get a 10kish look with a pink hue. when i turn on the pc bulb i get around a 14k look. im trying to find someone locally with a par meter so i can see what im getting

 

PS. keep this on the DL but im think of ADDING leds to this set up

 

 

 

only somewhere between 12- 20 of 3 watt CREES tho omgomgomg

Nice!!! I would love to see some led's in there. I honestly thought about that too, but just adding one ecoxotic strip. Are you using the Workhorse 5 ballast? Like I said I am not that impressed with the light output so far.

man thats a tough one, LEDS would be nice but I think a real bedia basket and maybe the aqualife skimmer would be the best. Thats my next purchase, skimmer and basket!!

well its pretty much the same price. either 12 LED retro kit and heat sink. or a skimmer and media basket BOTH. or a 20" cube thats 30 gallons with built in overflow and stand build by advance acrylics with euro brace for $100 and some of my armor of god zoa...... decisions decisions

i wouldnt put any more $$ into lighting, its getting cwazy. else id go all LED with 1 PC-R UVL Acitinic.

 

I would choose baskets/skimmer/fuge light for water quality imporvement. the 115 is badass.
