Do the Pc's do any good, I was just wondering, if you can tell the difference when they are on or off?
IMO they do. the 20ks cause a great deal of flouresence, however the 03s really draw out the color that the 20Ks can't. Its subtle, but the difference is there.

Is the color in the pic representative of the color of the tank? What bulbs are you using MH and Actinic?

I had to adjust the saturation a tab, but I think I captured it to about 90% of true color in that full tank shot. The detail is missing, and the live rock is washed out from the white balance, but the overall color capture is probablly the most accurate I have to date. I am using coralvue 20ks 2X400W and 2X96W Coralife 03s (420nm)

I went back to the 03s, I liked the 50/50s, but felt the 03s looked better in the end. Oh, and BTW Darin, thanks again for all your help getting me setup with this new system, I am happy beyond words with everything!

Yep it was $ right around $750. I am also now selling the CoralVue Hoods which have electonic ballasts and are a touch cheaper! PM or E-mail me if you want anymore info!
