    New Halide Installed

    So as you all know i have been running duel 250 watt 20k halides.. NOW its a 6 foot tank and i have been meaning to install a 3rd halide But have not had the cash for another 250 unit..

    And with all the reading on Par ratings and growth rates and such i decided to take the 175 watt 10k Ushio i had kicking around and installed it in the center of my tank.. Looking to get alittle more growth as well as brighten up things abit!

    So here we go..

    This is just running the 10k 175 watt .. Not too bad Spread over the 6 foot tank..


    Here we go with the 175 running, along with the 250 watt 20ks... I did not adjust any White Balance here.. As you can see it brightens up the center of the tank a bit more.


    And then finally, I used the white balance.. to bring out the correct colors in the tank.. and as you can see it looks not so bad just brighter in the center of the tank. Looks much better in person

    Hoping with the increase of the Par i will get the growth from the 10k, Thinking i will run the 175 watt from 12pm - 6 pm and then continue running only the 20ks until 10pm as I'm home and in the room from 6pm -10pm .. So i get too see the tank in the best color.. while the tank is getting the benefits of the higher Par from the 10k running for the first 6 hours.



    I will have some more pictures to come !

    Thanks
    Michael,

    Sorry not fraggin anything yet.. Need to wait till i get more live rock in there, and get it filled up, and see what it all looks like,

    I just picked up 60 pounds of old dried up live rock ( from an old system ) and 30 pounds of Tonga branch.. they are curing in a Tank together.. hoping in about 2-3 months there will be good growth on the new stuff.. Then i can add it all to the tank!
