So the consensus was NOT to use the floodlight or does it work? By what I read at reefcentral it did work? Also wheres the best place to buy a cheap PC setup for a fuge? I need one as well as I have a 40 gallon long sump/fuge...
Thanks

Hey Fishman...the one I got was a Coralife dual actinic/10000K daylight reflector, single bulb, and I ordered it from BigAlsOnline for around $40. A dam site better than what my LFS was asking for the same thing.

Mine is finally set up. I just need to dump the LS in, add some LR and then splice it into the main tank once it has completely cycled.

You'll love the fuge! It's well worth the trouble. My nitrates are 0 and it's been that way for months (since I started it). Good luck, sounds like a nice fuge your setting up.

Hey, thanks! Well, I read about them in Aquarium Fish Mag a couple months back and of course I had to have one! Like I said, I didn't want a HOB kind, so I dreamed up my own. I'm getting real excited about how it might benefit the big tank. Nitrates and phosphates are the areas I'm having (minor) issues with, so I'm hoping this will complete the "perfect" environment.
