Yea they do! Welcome to Maryland. Haha. I received 4 quotes back - and decided that Steve of Great Lakes Aquariums will be the builders. They will be building the tank, stand, sump, and frag tank and refugium. It will be 1/2inch glass and closed loop. I'll be using the same principle d2mini did with his cube routing the lighting wires through the overflow . With a herbie drain. Who wants to buy my vortechs and starphire 25 lol

Thanks man! Yea that room with the bay window(second pic) will be the walk around cube room. I reverted back to my need for a big cube after convincing Brit it would look amazing and showing her the cubes below posted in hypes thread. Other then that - one purple rain died. Other other is in the pistol/goby hole.

6x6 would cost another 2500 in LED lighting adding another 36sqft of surface area to be lit.

 

The tank would cost 3-4k more and it would be an 8500~ upgrade for just tank and lighting vs 3700....

No shimmer, no sunrise/sunset. I like LEDs and they're ability to he controlled and I can change the color tempurature throughout the day for growth and viewing. The cost will eventually pay for itself as this won't be a temporary set up. It will be the tank I'll keep till I'm old and wrinkly.

hype went back to t5

tron is still led

medred went t5/mh

 

 

Im still led cause I get awesome growth and coloration. have I thought about switching? yes. Have I thought about combo's? yes. But I will always have LED. If you guys remember I had one of the first "full spectrum" builds on the site less then a couple months after the radion came out. I still have the broadest selection of diodes on my build and love everything about leds, its just the science of ratios is a little difficult.

 

also its hard to pay for another lighting system when larger tanks like that are already set up....you know...so it is what it is

I considering doing an LED/T5 combo on my tank. Recently I took a 2 bulb T5 fixture with a 10k and antinic bulb, and I put it over my tank and mixed and matched with my LEDs. I was ultimately not impressed. The T5 color was so washed out. I went back to all LEDs and I'm very happy.
