    MH Questions

    I've found that the 20k xm's are great mixed with 10k 55 watt pc's. I get really good growth with this and I really like the blue from the MH's. The white from the PC's is plenty and the color on my corals improved greatly over the 10k AB's I first had. I built my own hood, I bought reflectors...

    magnesium test?

    Based on your coral load it isn't really an issue. If you want to keep sps corals then you should test for magnesium otherwise the calcium is unusable by your corals. Softies on the other hand don't have skeletal structure and have no need for calcium. A good way to know if you have the...

    FT 1/3 HP Aquametrics Chiller in Atlanta

I would be willing to trade for a smaller unit possible a 1/4 hp or 1/5 hp that would fit behind my stand or sell...

    FS: (2) 250watt halide, reflectors & ballast

    Perhaps just the ballast and moguls. I really don't need the bulbs. How about 110.0 plus shipping for the ballast assuming that shipping isn't more than 25. If you don't want to part out I can understand. Rob

    Hello lights?

    Hello lights?

    I've bought all my bulbs from them. As for pc's I've run their 10k's and actinics. The actinics suck but I'm betting they suck for all PC's. The 10k's are great. Rob

    reef ready tank?

    For a 75 you will only need 1. The lfs is being a bit excessive by telling you 2. The additional overflow provides more flow. So, you could get a larger pump in your sump. Generally the 75 and 90 overlfows handle 600 gph. So a mag 9.5 is a good size pump for that tank and very reasonable...
