Ha, I don't think they claim to be any better than the other ATI bulbs, just different. The see people like me and see dollar signs. haha.

My corals are all still doing well. I have several new polyps on my zoas already, and while I haven't seen any noticeable growth on my milli's, I definitely *think* they look healthy.

Just looked at my tank this morning, the hair algae is starting to turn white. Guess that's a good sign that something is going right. Refugium should be set up today, tomorrow at the latest. I have my plumbing ready to put on (gotta love unions), and the tank is drilled, so I'm just waiting on my bulkhead.

it works the same way as it did before. It just finishes draining. A bit higher in the sump, but only about 1/2" higher. I knew it wouldn't flood because I filled the refugium to the point where it started to overflow, then turned the pump on, then filled the return section high enough to kick off the ATO... then once it ran for a few, I turned off the pump, let it all drain down then turned it back on... worked perfect.

I think I forgot to mention that I picked up a lawnmower blenny. It was a deal I could not pass up. So, here's another terrible video. Please excuse the water stains on the glass. I have yet to clean it since finishing my stand build haha. Once I get feeling better, I'll do that... hopefully tomorrow.

Oh... and the video quality sucks.. sorry.

Very nice Blenny. It looks like he is posing for the camera!
