I love the LEDS!!!

I'm going to be building a shield for my sump. The drain line causes a lot of foam and I'm getting salt creep on everything. I have enough acrylic to create a nice shield to keep everything in the tank.

Now to find some weldon...

Nitrites are down to 0 again and the Nitrates are up to about 20...It's time for the first PWC....I've already made the new SW for that PWC and am just waiting for a day or two to do it.

I'll be ready for some live stock this weekend I believe...

Nice! I love Chromis, they are active and bright colored! Great choice. Are you getting blue greens or blue reefs etc.?

Yeah, I would like to try LEDS on a future nano setup. I really like those A1 Sols, I think they are called. I saw them on a frag tank at a LFS On Sunday.

I also really like the shimmer look LEDS give off.

Ziggy, which LEDs are you using? Thanks!

Algae doesn't just occur...you have to introduce it somehow...
