Well I got my 175 W metal Halide and installed it. That thing is sooo sick....It's rediculous how much brighter it is. I'll get a pic up of it tomorrow because right now they are off.
I also built a new sump for it and installed that. It's a much better design that my other one and really utilizes all the space available in my stand. I was able to put my skimmer down there and shove a lot of live rock rubble down there. I really need a lot more...but it'shard to find LR
rubble around here. My local supplier has it for 99 cents a lb but she is out...I need about 20 lbs of it of more....I'll need about 50 lbs of it for my 125 and the 55 gallon sump I built for it.
Does anybody know anything about a diamond goby? I want to add one to aid in sand sifting. My sand has a lot of waste on it/in it.
Okay check it out, here are the pics with the old light...which was a 40 W 10,000 K
Here is a pic with the new light. It's a 175 W retro fit metal halide 14,000k. Everything is much happier...but I'm getting some more diatom growth. Although the purple and green coraline is taking off also.
Can you tell the difference? lol
