    Arrow Really liking what i see...



    I really like the look of this tank, the dude is using 36" T5 (4x39w / 156w) Tek-Light hood.

    where can i get this light or something similar to for a good price. Keeping in mind that i would need 48".

    AND...

    can you name some the corals in this tank because i really like the colors.

    THx

    Ivan might be selling them here on Aquaria, I don't know.

    Stephane at Reef Solution sells 48" T5s.

    http://www.reefsolution.com/catalog/

    In the tank, it's mostly brains, buttone, mushrooms, Ricordia, various LPS, and a few SPS.
    Oh..., and lots of cyano on the sand!!!

    Toutouche, is the cyano on the sand the same as what's growing in the sand that is pressed up against the glass? Are the two the same thing?
    thanks.

    I ordered T-5 from Reefsolution, but hes out of stock. And told me he had problems with the plug n play versions of the T-5 and would not re-order them for now.

    In all honesty, I'm not sure. But suffice to say that it is very common to have the various reds, burgandys and greens along the glass in the sand. This is usually a way of seeing when the sand is finally functioning..., apparantly. I personally have never referred to this however. The cyano on top of the sand should not be there. In a tank that has matured, has good flow and is stable, you shouldn't have cyano on top of the sand.

    I readed that if you use the icecap 660 ballast and t5's, they will over drive the light to 80watts each giving you a total of 320 watts. I'm currently overdriving my NO actinic bulbs from 40 to 80 watts big difference in light. If i find the magazine i will post story.
