I think, if you read the link for the LED lighting system, that one, I believe has a built in timer. The unit I linked did not. I bought this outdoor timer from HD....actually it is not that exact unit, mine had 6 outlets. I got that one because my lighting cords are under my tank, and it is water proof. I also bought a similar weather proof outlet protector, but I can't find it on the HD web site.

Age is relative, you are only as old as you act....of course, this works in reverse....

Questions loved, heeded advice greatly appreciated!

and then with those lights, if someone wouldnt mind throwing me out a quick list of what we can/can't keep, it would be greatly appreciated because you all are the best.

thanks again for the help.[/quote]

At 6.6 wpg with MH, you could keep even the most light hungry species including clams. You'll have to be careful going the other way, ie exposing lower light corals to too much light and bleaching them--but if you keep 'em near the bottom of the tank they should acclimate. Also, you might want to read the article on acclimating your tank to new, more intense lighting. It could help keep 'em from bleaching also. congrats on the new light! This is the one I've been wanting for some time also--let us know how big a difference it makes.

wow, I just found this on ebay....hopefully you haven't bought your light yet....check it out:

okay, so the decision is finally made. that is the model im going with.

Dr. Nate, thanks for that link to ebay, I had looked at that early, but somehow missed that seller. I think we are going to be buying from him.

at the moment, we dont have any corals so we dont need to worry about acclimating...but i will definately keep it in mind for the future.

Roka, I think you are right - I was looking at a different model. And thanks again for the suggestion, smart choice. I'll definately look into it.

we should be making the purchase in the next week or two, so I will let everyone know how things go a little while down the road. Thanks again!
