    New Light Help

    If it were me, I would get the large heatsink for the NC24, 12 royal blues and 12 cool white crees....24 thermal pads , and two of the dimmable meanwell drivers, and you would be set. You would be able to keep any type of coral, and have the ability to control the lighting color to your liking...

    SWC replacement pump??

    The sicce psk 2500 is a very good upgrade. You have to modify the body and input a bit to put it on , but it is well worth the effort. Marine Solutions still sells the upgrade kit, I believe.

    Does anyone dip their corals?

    Or you can go to walmart and get about 20x the amount for a tenth of the price. I buy iodine at walmart and dip every coral I get for about 5 -10 minutes in the solution. Just mix it up so that is about the color of iced tea and you will be amazed at the crap that comes out of some corals.

    Looking for Acrylic Sheets

    unless you can find a sheet locally, I have used estreetplastics and freckleface in the past and they are both reasonable and have smaller sheets which will ship ups or fedex.
