New lights!

Just bought these on E-bay for $75 each. Hope I like them. Will sell either the blue/white ones I have with my 75 gallon reef or these if I dont like them. Figured I would give the full spectrum a try. We will see!

That's an incredible price. Can't wait to see how these work out for you! I've thought about getting full spectrum next light purchase.

So, the tank is doing great! All fish are healthy and happy. The new lights I didn't like so I sold them with the 75 gallon. Didn't seem as bright as the blue/white ones and you could see the different colors in the streams of light in the tank. Stuck to the old TaoTronics blue/whites. Will post some pics later today. Have a couple new additions also!

So glad everything is doing well, and I'm excited to see the new additions! Congrats!

Got home too late to get pictures tonight.
My stock list is now:

1 - black saddleback clown
1 - Yellow Tang
1 - Tomini Tang
1 - Hippo Tang
1 - Chromis
1 - Coral Beauty
1 - Mandarin
1 - Melanarus Wrasse
1 - Leopard Wrasse

All are getting along well and eating and healthy. When and what should I add for inverts and cleanup crew? I know its early. Would like to put a couple shrimp in there. I do have corals, so they will have to be reef safe. I know snails will have to wait until the tank is more established and there is stuff for them to eat. I will take some pics and post them tomorrow.
