Nice. I'll probably check my levels sometime this week. Hopefully the nitrates will be low. I should probably get another T-5 4bulb before I transfer my coral though.

Ahh gotcha.. yeah im not sure what I'm gonna be using for lighting when I get my tank going.. or if I'm gonna have a lid or not, depends on where were living and whether I can keep my cat outta the room with the tank lol
