    Updated pics of my tank

    Well, as some of you may know, I just switched out my 400 watt radiums and replaced them with 4 250 watt 20K Giesemann double ended bulbs. I'm running them in Reef Optix III pendants and driving them with Maxkor electronic ballasts. I've had the new setup going now for about 5 days and am very pleased with the look of the new bulbs. I'm hoping my sps will respond favourably to the new lights. Some of the stags and tables are showing much nicer colouration under this bulb. I've noticed significantly less heat as my chiller is running much less frequently. Here are a couple of pics of the setup as it looks now. I yanked out a number of overgrown acro colonies a couple of months ago so the tank doesn't look as full as it used to.

    Cheers.

    Thanks. For those interested and with some patience, I've captured a short video of my tank as it looked last night. The video takes about 90 seconds to upload with DSL and requires Quick Time on your computer.
