I know my current light is not the best, does anyone know if it will grow soft corals at the very least?

I'm pretty sure those lights can grow soft corals and maybe some low light lps

Thanks for the reply. I know they are pretty bright since they are only 12" from the sand bed. But they are only 1w each which worries me

I just picked up a few turbo snails to help with the cycle. I added bio-spira a few days ago and everything is testing right. I'm going to wait a while for fish though.

So I just bought a rapid led light someone sold on eBay for $150. I'm just wondering what people think about the color combination.

 

LED's setup is as follows:

 

(8) 5 Watt Cool White Cree XP-G2 LEDs w/ 6,000K color temperature

(11) 5 Watt Royal Blue Cree XT-E LEDs w/450-465nm wavelength

(1) 3 Watt Violet UV LED w/ 410-420nm wavelength

(1) 3 Watt Red Cree XP-E LED w/ 620-630nm wavelength

(1) 3 Watt Green Cree XP-E LED w/ 520-535nm wavelength

 

Im also wondering about the height at which I should hang this thing?

Any thoughts or replies would be greatly appreciated!

I love the tank. I got it from marine depot for $450. The tank, the minimax reactor, and the ghost skimmer all came in a package deal. It also has the mesh screen, stock pump and leveling mat. I was worried about shipping this tank, but it all came in just fine and fortunately there was no problem with any of the silicone. I love the tank!

Thanks! I just finished setting up my ATO. I found a nice jug at an auto store while I was picking up some paint for my mesh screen(thanks for the Idea B hope you don't mind)! But here's the jug I filled it up with some fresh ro/di water and it's running great!

Thanks! I just got off work and checked my tank out and it seems as though I've got some algae growing on my dry rock, it looked like small red spots that are spread out, but after switching the lights spectrum around I realized its brown. I'm just glad to know my piece of live rock is seeding the tank!

How's your skimmer doing so far? I can't get mine to stop spitting out micro bubbles.

 

Also, be cautious with your scape it seems like there's a lot of rocks that could prevent good flow.

The flow seem to be fine I place a shrimp in the front and it has traveled around the whole aquarium. If I have any problems later I'll move it around. And I don't have it running right now I'm trying to get the tank to cycle first. Between the mp10 and the maxi jet my only problem has been to much flow. Also my rock is lifted off the sand by PVC. It touches in a lot of places but for the most part it's raised.

So I decided to build a temporary rail to hang my light on. It turned out pretty good and only cost about 15 dollars.

Review on the skimmer I heard its loud

Review on the skimmer I heard its loud
The MP 10 is louder, the skimmer is not loud at all. I started using it two days ago so it's still breaking in. The micro bubbles are a pain, they are everywhere. The manual says it takes around two weeks to break in and that the micro bubbles should stop. Only time will tell. I'll post when they stop.

 

FedEx has lost my new light in the mail. Now I have to wait until Tuesday to get it, that is if they find it! Such a disappointment

So I'm wondering if I should go with one clown or two. I do plan on getting a purple fire fish and a shrimp and goby pair. I'm just not sure if the bio-load will be too much. I will have some assorted corals, lps and soft mainly. Any thoughts? I'm fine with keeping just one clown but from what I have read they might be better off in a pair. Any suggestions will be appreciated.

You should be fine with a pair.
