    I just wanted to chime in and let you know that if you are buying it off the BAy from some guy named Elvis, out of NOrthern California (San Fran area) you should take heed. The price was right. However, the unit sucks! It was a 48" 2x 250 watt MH + 4 x55 PC, + moonlights. He advertised the...

    Drilling LR

    I did a lot of drilling into my live rock because i built a big rock wall, using eggcrate, lockties and live rock. I had the most luck with a dremel. The pieces of rock were small, but the dremmel really did a good job.
