I went to the store today and the guy looked at me like I was nuts when I asked for 1 shrimp lol.

Im really starting to dislike my light and I want to upgrade. Now I gotta see what I can sell so I can afford one. So for this build has cost me $0. I'm actually still ahead $5 lol

I do like the look you have going on with the sides there. I gotta move mine because rock is too close to the ends and debris is staying there creating deadspots

I have the odyssea 4 bulb fixture and I love it. It is amazing. The bulbs do not need changed it dose not affect the corals they do fine. The fixture is great.

I like led or t5ho lights. I have t5s under mine. Led is expensive but low heat. MHs have high heat. I'd get a t5 setup. Check out aquatic life t5 fixtures. They have built in timers.

I think i'm going to go with the Odyssey fixture. Seems like the only people who negative reviews don't even own them and the people who own all say they love then.

The fixture I want is the t5ho 36" 4 bulb. Its only $80 with free shipping

Sounds like a good affordable setup. I'll check the odyssey out too.

You will be amazed at how bright it is. Its built pretty well as well. I heard the bad reviews as well but those were the ones from like '08. They have gotten alot better
