Thats just a theoretical spread though, obviously like any light there will be a lot more power in the center directly under the light and it will fade as it gets to the extent of the angle. I'll dig up all the links I used tomorrow and send them to you.

You can use any size fan you want, computer fans are pretty common at 80mm and 120mm. I would still go for both sets, but you should post a FTS to show what you are trying to fill in.

Ugh. I hate you for this...again.

Still here. I've been reading a few of those LED threads but i don't know as much about them as Jimbo. I need someone to organize a coral market around here. All my LFS are very ... average at best. Can't wait to see what good stuff you pick up. If i'm ever out in CA i'm going to sneak in and raid your tank of good frags. You will just some home and notice a few branches are snipper. Forget cat burglar i am a coral thief. : )

Impressive build - amazing tank. Recently bought a Desjardini Sailfin and noticed that you had one too. Has quickly become my favorite fish - just beautiful with lots of personality. Looking forward to more photos of your setup.

Thank you very much. The Desjardini's are very neat looking fish, especially when you look at the closely and up close. It is also always cool when they put their dorasal fin up. I have to admit though, my wife was the one who said, I can pick anything I want in the tank as long as there is a Sailfin Tang. I decided on the Desjardini since they are not as common.
I have a couple more pictures I can post soon of new additions of coral I picked up last week.
