  1. That seems like a pretty rapid increase in alk.

    Yet another T5 4 bulb combo question

    Yeah, get a Ge6500; they're cheap as heck anyways. Another T5 to check out would be the Giesemann Midday as it's literally the definition of "full spectrum".

    Yet another T5 4 bulb combo question

    It all depends on how blue you want your tank to run! 2x B+ and 2x GE6500 is pretty darned white, almost yellowish FYI. I haven't had the chance to run 3x B+ and 1x GE6500 yet. A standard option is always 2x B+ and 2x C+.

    Show off you Stax scapes !!!

    My entire scape was made from approximately 25lb of the Stax + some extra old live rock to seed.

    Ninja's Red Sea Reefer 350 -New Year Update

    Yess! Less is sometimes better on a more mature reef tank!

    Awesome Jackie! Any new maintenance changes to the tank to turn it around?

    Coral Kingdom Of Thras ~ Power Outage

    You'll do great with that PAR range. That's actually what I have slowly transitioned my corals to over the past couple of months (from 3-500 PAR previously) in both my display and frag tanks. I've noticed that my growth and coloration are better.
  8. Thanks Ninja. The SPS have hit a stride in my tank.
  9. Sorry I've taken so long to get back to you. I actually really like the Orphek Atlantik. It puts out a ton of PAR and really even lighting, but the only downside is there's noticeable discoing with moderate-heavy water surface agitation. I like it much better than the Radions I've used in the past. Here's a series of video updates of my tank. Everything continues to plug away and color up slowly!

    Choosing T5 bulbs for Nanobox Hybrid

    My montis are doing fine under 250-300 PAR!

  12. Thanks Chris! Here's that top down shot of the frag tank. It's hard to take photos of due to the light reflecting back up, so I took the picture at a slight angle.
  13. Been a while! Tank is still plugging away. Made some additions and removals to the tank. More prominently, I swapped out the MH for LED due to heat issues. My fish tank room is really small, and it felt like a sauna every time I would enter the room. I'm now running the ATI/NBR Hybrid over the display and an Orphek Atlantik over the frag tank. Enjoy. I also had a good friend of mine give me some hot acropora, including an Acrolandia frag.
