    Finally, I did it!

    Got all the lights installed! .. and Running!

    Here you can see the VHOS ( 4x 110 watts installed ) they are older bulbs came with the tank..
    Consisting of 2x Aquasun, 1x URI Actinic, 1x URI Actinic white. With a 175 watt 10k Ushio Metal Halide.



    And then here we go with them Running!

    Just the Metal Halide:


    And then ... All the lights running :



    Now im seriously Concidering maybe running 2x 175s.. I really think that 250s would be too much for this canopy!

    Thats Andy from Sudbury... that guy has an awesome tank... If I'm ever in the area I will definately be giving him a call...

    The color your lights are awesome Tooolound!!! but I agree with you... 2x250(or 400) would do a ton of good.

    Tooloud

    all depends on what clams your talking about. Clams like Maximas love tons of light! while Deresa can live with VHO.
    250w would not be over kill on your tank and you could keep almost anything then. I use 2x 250w with VHO on my 90g no heat issues at all.

    Im not worried about the light overload.. Just the canopy itself.. becouse its so low and i dont want to work on modifing it..

    Andy's tank is AMAZING!

    I have a Coreca.. and its looking good.

    Ahhh- this is what I want to do, Tooloud! I'm going to put my MH in the middle so I have one really bright area, and the rest with VHO's. Looks good!

    I think I better take my canopyto the next meeting so someone with some know how can hook it up for me.
