Bleehhh. TONS of homework lately. Have barely had time to get on the boards. I need to finish framing up the stand. Tank is still sitting on my counter, not plumbed so the water circulation is quite poor. No losses so far, but the algae fgot out of control last week and killed half of my Verde. I need to find the time to get it all together....

Oh man, I know what you mean about too much HW! Got engineering tests and everything. My tanks have got the filmy dusty algae thing going on like no ones business!

Got to find some time to get them cleaned up. Still doing the PWC though. Go get yourself a new coral...Thats what motivates me to clean the place up! Ive got some new corals on the way in a trade im doing. Im trading 9 Red People Eaters for some Armour Of God and Purple Deaths...

Matt

Jim, how do you like the color combo with 1:1 white/blue? I'm about to order my LEDs 2:1 blue over white to get more of a 20k look but I will lose a lot of lumens that way. So now I am thinking
12x xp-g white and 12x xr-e blue in one 6x12 heatsink

I like it, but i never really run them at full power next to each other. I have pots on both strings and I dim each to achieve the color temp I like. I would start with 1:1 since its hard to predict how they will look next to your other lights. Just place them so that at a later time you have the option to stick a few more on there. Thats another great advantage of LEDS, as long as your power supply can take it.


I proooommmmissse I will have an update soon, I am still lurking quite often. It's hard because I have to manage everything with my team and we are travelling a lot, go to practice, hours of homework, and put together a portfolio and interview for jobs. Needless to say its crazy around here. As soon as I grab some wood to cut up and finish the stand, I will have pictures.

Stay strong Matt! no one said it was easy to carry this hobby at our age, lol.

Do hermit crabs eat coral frags?
