    55 Gallon Reef - T5 Lighting Help!

    So I've been searching the forum pages for simple answers and keep getting poor results. Also, the forum has been a bit buggy searching lately. I currently have a 36" Coralife Aqualight Pro with 1-150W MH 10k and 2-64W PC Actinics. I've had the tank up and running since late 2006 and had this...

    I just screwed my tank up!

    First question I have is, what type of sand did you add to your tank? Was it live sand or salt water tank sand from your LFS? I used to clean fresh water tanks for Dr. offices. I moved a 75 gallon tank for one of the doctors because he had it in front of a window which was causing the Acrylic...

    Best hight for lights 2", 4", 6", 8" ???

    Is there a benefit to having the lights closer or are they better further away? Were only talking about 4 to 8 inches of difference. Is it going to change things that much?
