Obviously more room for corals, more choice of fish with a bigger tank, water is easier to keep at stable parameters.... That the science.... Opinion.... Just more awesome... If you can why not?

I will be upgrading at the end of March a 180 is what I want but don't know it lf I want the extra expense. I know I like LED's but don't like the look of the single units hanging above the tank. I am thinking if the aquaticlife T5HID fixture what do you guys think

I started with a (4) bulb aquatic life T5 and I really liked it. When I upgraded to A radion, I couldn't believe how bulky it made the T5 look, but all in all it is a great fixture. Been on my 54 reef, and frag tank with great results. I did upgrade bulbs with ATI's. that made a huge difference.

Yeah I remember talking to you about them. I did upgrade to the ATI bulbs a couple of months ago and got the bulbs you recommended. I am ready for my up grade. I have a spot that will be perfect for a 180. The best part is that there is a closet that I can run plumbing in to and have everything in there like sump RODI a sink fresh tank and a mixing station. Only problem is that I have got to get the wife to buy in to me taking over that closet
