Hi everyone. I haven't done much. Its starting to go downhill. I've been so out of it that I feed, add water and turn the lights on and off. My lights all need replacing, corals are all starting to close up because of that. I gotta get it back up there, can barely see through the glass. It is just a struggle to do anything anymore....most of the time. Well I made it back to the forum finally and now to get some bulbs or switch to led ASAP. Suggestions? All 6 bulbs need replacing BAD. Fixture is 6 bulb crap, I am at work and I forgot what my light fixture is lol. Par for the course these days. Oh Nova Extreme I think.

I'd say either get your local fish store to take care of the tank if they do that, or take it down. If its too much, it's too much. Sorry if that sounds harsh, it's not supposed to be.

Nope, but thanks for suggestion.

48" tank = What does everybody suggest for led's at a decent price? Nothing outrageous.

Got these, should be here betweenv16th and 23rd. How high should I place these above 21" deep tank?

Now to figure out how to rig my pully system to hold these, look nice and not drill anymore holes in my ceiling.

How long is it? My 3ft tank needed them 12" above it so it didn't fry everything even with it dimmed and for even exposure. Mine is 16" deep.

I dealt with the same problem, just say you like the industrial look

Also, make sure you transition them slowly. This will add a ton of light to the tank, make sure to slowly raise the dimmer over the course of a month. Nobody wants photo inhibition.
