    Help me get my zoas color back!

    I bought these two months back and this is what they looked like at first. This is what they look like now. I really like how they looked when I first got them. Do you think they need more or less light? Does flow have anything to do with it? My fixture is a 150w 10k bulb with T5 actinics...

    70W Metal Halide Sunpod (Union, NJ)

    This fixture comes with the mounting legs and the glass top for the 12g aquapod if you need it. It is 16.5 inches long but the legs may be able to go another inch out.

    calfo overflow questions

    I'm building a 30 x 15 x 13 tank and need to decide on an overflow. What's the minimal size the calfo can be? Also, I don't mind it spanning across the length of the tank but rather not. What size and how many bulkheads would you suggest? Any other overflows that would be clean and look nice...

    Are SPS under a 70W sunpod fine?

    Right now I have a birdsnest frag on the top half of my tank which seems to be doing great. I mean growth isnt the best but its growing and its polyps seem to be out. I just got a tyree birdsnest and im wondering if placing it in the middle of the tank if that would be enough light for it. Thanks

    Is stacking LR on the back wall of aquapod a good idea?

    So im thinking of changing my aquascape and would like the most room in the front. Is there any bad reasoning why i shouldnt stack the Live rock on the back wall of my aquapod? Im thinking it would also make my fish and inverts be in the front of the tank more often too.
