Yep, the light available to the corals. Mr X did the par readings on his leds so i figured I'd get some numbers for other folks too.

If it's not too much of a bother I will even do the 10g with the stock light and the 90g with the ATI bulbs. Will be great to see what the differences are between crap bulbs and good bulbs as well. LOL

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

Actually Scott that yellow fish is a citron goby, I still havent' moved the yellow and green clown gobies over to the tank yet. lol The citron is really cool though, we call him dopey goby cause he's so big and well dopey. hehe...

I didn't get to use the par meter by the way guys, they couldnt find it that day but she promised to come by soon with it. So I wait.

BUT in the meantime I got some goodies today. And picked up 2 corals, a nice ultra acan and a sunset montipora, a tiny frag.

Here is the new gear I got today!!! I need advice on which side to place it though. I have a frag rack on the right side and the left side has the overflow. SOoooo not sure what to do. LOL Suggestions are very welcome, I'm dawdling putting it in cause not sure which side to put it on.

Congrats on the new corals!

I am thinking maybe putting it on the side with the frag rack, seems like it may reach more rock area there, then again the frags wouldn't get much flow......

That was my original intention, the right side of the tank that has more open glass space. Maybe I should just move the frag rack to the left side? it will get flow that way and the vortech can reach the whole rockscape. Just nervous playing with such an expensive power head, don't wanna break it. lol I'm spazzy like that so it's always a valid concern with me. hehe Just wanna have the big picture in my head before i start putting on the sticky mounts and everything.
