I recently, last week, upgraded the lights to RapidLed's retrofit. The lights are great, but it didn't help as much with the heat as I'd hoped. My tank runs, with no powerhead at 90.1 - 91 degrees. So far no losses because of it, oh well, maybe the urchin - only made it two weeks... Ate like a pig though.

With the LED's I'm down to 85... Far from good, but I swear everything is growing like mad, especially the macro algae in the display.

I so do not want to buy a chiller, but alas, I have run out of options I think.

Here are some pics:
Your tank and angler look beautiful! Thank you do much for the update! Im glad to see he is doing well despite the temperature issues.

Digital kitchen probe thermometer. I don't trust glass floaters.

Been trying to decide what coral to put on the sandbed in the middle of the tank, been looking around for a nice fungia or other plates, checked out favias, and brains galore.

I finally saw something unique, so I grabbed it. Called a King Midas Brain. It's yellow thorns surrounding a bluish center mouth. Really nice coral, but it's got a long stalk do it sticks up a bit more than I'd like above the sand.

Still thinking about adding a rock nem or a plate too. I'm looking for yellow zoos and a sun coral for inside the cave. Add a few small acans and palys and I'm set.

I also did something terrible again. I decided to just see what putting an MP-10 in the tank would be like... It's going to stay, so I need to order another for the 54 tank know :/

Here's the only shot I snapped today.
