Thanks for the compliments. I love the light so far. People are starting to put their lighting schemes on different forums and you can download them to your radion and see which ones you like best. It's pretty amazing what these lights can do. I only have a green tip torch coral and a pumping xenia, so the light isn't being tested yet but both are doing well. Haven't been able to play with the light too much, they aren't MAC compatible yet so I've had to borrow a laptop. Ibrahim, I bought the light for $650 but I was also starting an aquarium from the ground up and purchased most of my supplies through them and they gave me a discount!

I also was looking into the AI sol but including the controller it wasn't that big of a difference in price for what you got.

Hope my little bit of knowledge helps.

Did I tell anyone it's 75 degrees in Cali!

Just about everyone is going to PCM drivers on their LED panels, which allow for the great versatility of being able to run lighting programs.
With the new multi-segment LEDs coming into the market at up to 100 watts per LED, the game is rapidly favoring LED. I love mine and I went the unfancy cheap way.

At the moment it's 53* and sunny in Las Vegas, where I'm visiting, but in about (2) hours I'm flying back to Michigan where it's 27* and snowing...

As for lights, I think I'll hold off for a bit. When I get home, I'm gonna focus on the skimmer / fuge situation.

Finally home... And wow, what a mess. It looks as though my power went out because one of my powerheads was running in reverse, which it does every other power cycle. Also my return pump was unplugged... Not sure about that one yet. My tank is covered in micro-algae on the front glass. Several corals are out of position, BUT my serpent star was out hunting... So that's nice. Gonna be a long morning when I get up! Sheesh!

Rob:

Not too sure on skimmer, still looking at either octo or the ASM-G that you recommended before. I suppose it all depends on what exactly I do. Haven't really been thinking about it much.

I find out whether into to Japan for 1+ year(s) in a couple weeks, so I'm holding off until then. That will change a lot of things...
