    190 lighting cycle

    East to West West to East. I have the Aquacontroller set up that way but it's hard for me to take pictures in the morning so just used the same ones. I have a real bad glare on the tank from the windows parallel to the tank. I have to wait until the sun goes sun to take full tank shots. I...

    Lepard wrasses

    There could be a fight but with the color difference you might be OK. I have added wrasses that were completely different color and the existing wrasses started fighting but ended up being fine. It's all about territory.

    Mystery Wrasse

    Well I guess they aren't shrimp friendly. I just added some Peppermint Shrimp and he found them. I watched him eat this one.

    Metal Halides....HERE WE COME !!

    Another thing you can do is run the MHs the normal time you run your lights but have them about 3' above the tank and then every week lower it a little. This way you bring it in slow and not burn your corals. You even do this when you change out the bulbs. This is what I do and I haven't had...

    I ran 400s on a 25" deep tank and they were just fine. The main thing is heat factor. These bulbs throw out a lot more heat then a 250.

    Clam question...

    I had a maxima and a crocea under 330 watts of PCs on a 55 gal but never got growth like how my clams grow under MHs. I have a Gigga thats has grown about 2" in about 6 months.

    My 190 inwall

    I can't wait for it to fill in. I started with all frags except 2 colonies of acros. I went threw the wonderful acro eating flatworms in the old tank and I don't want those again. I just recently did the redbug treatment and now my stuff is pest free. YEAH!

    2-legged starfish hitchhiker

    They're not really a nuisance but the can multiply very fast and take over. They multiply by dropping arms so the more you have the faster they multiply. My opinion is to take it out.
