I think that would be fine for soft coral. LPS too with a higher placement. Sounds like a perfect fit , and at the perfect price!
As long as tank is 24" in depth or under.

Yep!! 20" deep, so should be a nice interim! Thanks for the reassurance!

You know, 1 more of those fixtures and you could keep anything you want. But then you would be a slave to bulb replacement, like I am.
20-36" T5's, annually about $400... LED is def the way to go, looking into it myself.
What made you decide on Ecoxotic?

I like the modular design the most. Couple that with the new tank mount on the relatively new lighter weight fixtures and it gives a rimless tank a great look IMO.

I definitely want to go LED so that I won't be chained to bulb replacement, I'd rather spend that money on upgrading/adding modules.

Absolutely!!
There are just so many out there, my heads spinning. Wanted to know what made you chose the Eco's.
Good luck with your tank!

Interesting find today in the tank, a bristle worm. Why is that interesting? There is nothing that was "live" that was put in the aquarium. All dry base rock from BRS and dry sand. I actually enjoy the bristle worms being part of the clean up crew, just interesting to see...

Only thing I can figure is that it hitched a ride on either me or the turkey baster. About 6 inches. I was overcome with confusion yesterday!!

Alright, so I just got back with the freebie light fixture. Turns out its an Odyssea quad T5 HO fixture with a built in timer. Downfall, Odyssea. The positive, it was free!! Fixture is less than 6 months old and has new bulbs that were put in. I can't complain. So here's a couple of pictures showing the new fixture and the rock work.

It's really much whiter than the iPhone camera can detect. So I'm thinking about adding a bit more rock to the scape to try and break up the shelf in the middle and add a little bit more height. I still have a piece or two of Pukani left over and there's already about 45lbs in there as is. What do you guys think?
