As soon as I get my lights set up this weekend I will add some sps and maybe we can trade in a few months. My lighting is 2x175 watt metal halides 10k and 4x75 watt vho actinic. I hope to get some good color out of the sps with the 4 vho actinics. I got the ballasts bulbs and everything just got to build the canopy. All these hurricanes keep delaying things so hopefully i'll find time this weekend to build it but then again we got ivan coming.
My dad has like a week off starting friday so he's gonna help me build it. Thanks for the offer though. I can't wait to get some sps frags next week, I'll be adding the coral from my old 20g. reef this weekend to.
Well my dad found this place where he was working in auburndale called nollens. He got an elagance coral and he got like 30lbs of cured figi liverock that is loaded with mushrooms and other polips and one piece has an anenome the size of a golf ball. It was only $6 a pound. He went back there again the next week because he was still working over there and got me and him each a 20lb. piece of a rock. My 20 pounder has a pagoda cup growing on it and his 20 pounder had some polips and both pieces were loaded with small orange sponges. He says they have mostly coral and a a average selection of fish. He says they have probably have 10-15 times more coral they most other stores. He said they got a lot of other stuff to like lights, tanks, filters, protein skimmers, and just piled full of other goodies. He said the manager drives up to their suppliers each wedsnday and hand picks all the fish, coral, liverock, and inverts. So pretty much everything there is good.
