Thanks for the input guys. Yup no test kit what so ever. There are a lot of things that I didn't do right that's the reason I want to start again the right way. I would test my nitrates/nitrites at the LFS
tho. I wouldn't do water changes that often either. Maybe once every other month. I know, I know... I have learned a lot from here tho.
Even tho I did pretty much every thing wrong i was able to maintain a some what nice tank but fish/coral wouldn't last more than 6 months. Here's a picture of it from like 4 years ago...
I have been wanting to upgrade to get T5's but don't really know where to start. I've heard that they get real hot and may break the tank. I currently have a canopy and the lights sit like 8 inches from the acrylic top. I'll take a picture of the set up and hopefully you guys and give me some input.
Thanks again every one!
