You might want to acclimate them to the light slowly so that they dont get stressed out from the change.

Cool. I like how you have the light hanging! Did it come with the stand or did you build it yourself?

my dad built the stand and I just drilled it in to the stand and sprayed it black. It also has a swivle on it to so I can turn the lights to left, center or right.

Looks sweet...I just set up a 37 gal, and the lighting system is hanging for that tank, and the tank is topless!

Is that just 14k or do you have any actinics?

What type of skimmer is that?
