    Pre-packaged Seawater

    It works great although it can get pricey... I just drive my boat out into the gulf a few miles and fill up a few buckets and my corals seam to react so awesome to it after a water chage to it.. I/m just afraid that one of these days I'm gonna scopp up some red tide or parasites..

    Too Much Light??

    Go the vho route with uri super actinics they have a built in reflector.. As for aclimation, cut a piece of eggcrate to fit the top of your tank and put about 5-8 layers of screen over it and remove one layer every 3 days.

    Too Much Light??

    400's are gonna be a little heavy on the electric bill.. You really don't need 400 watters either on a 24'' tall tank.. I'd run 4 240 watt hqi metal halides in pfo mini pendants with pfo hqi ballasts and 14k pheonix bulbs..

    Purple up

    I don't believe in those products, I think there a waste of money. I'd rather spend the time and money on kalkwasser to keep my cal-alk-ph levels stable. Once I started dripping kalk my coraline went nuts know I have to scrape it off the front glass almost every week.

    Holy $$$$ Coral!!!!

    I can not see spending $50 a polyp for a color that has rather dull colors and is tiny... I think shrooms are nicer they any acan lord. If they were cheap like $30 for a small colony no one would buy them because of there dull colors. The only reason why people buy them really is to brag about...
