    Wow quite the difference between the 6500K NO's and the Aquasuns. What ballast are you using to drive them?

    They are being run off 2 Workhorse 7 Ballast!

    As you can see in the first shot is mainly VHO actinics.. becouse of the lack of power comming from the NO's!

    The Aquasuns, I really dont like becouse of the pinkish coloration to them.. But they are great for Coral growth!

    Pink was killing me!

    Alright so the pink was killing me.. Does not look so bad in the pic but in real life.. its HORRID! ..

    So took out the Aquasuns.. and replaced them with 65k Phillip Normal outputs and overdriving Then now!

    You can see the difference !
