Thanks Evan, me either! LOL we took apart all the previous lighting in the canopy but still need a few things from the hardware store, so hopefully soon.

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

Keep doing your PWC's (think cal. mag. ect.) add the M7 it wont hurt Just keep on eye on your coral i shocked mine when i put the reactor on my tank It made the water to clean. Thats why i suggest using half of the recommended amount of pellets to start

LOL, guess you cant beat what works. Not to mention they were losing some of the market for lighting so they are getting in on the action. Mayeb i was lucky but I never had any issue with their t5's, I still have a couple in service.

Thanks Red, i am soo relieved he started eating. Was starting to really worry me.

Just did some water tests and they are still 0 across the board, even pH is looking good. I figured I might have a slight spike with the 11 fish going in on tuesday but it seems to be holding strong. woot!

Gonna head to lowes in a little bit and see what the price would be to hang the leds on a closet pole, you know, the thing that you hang your hangers on. They are like 6 feet and wont require any drilling really, just the end caps and a center support piece.

Mr.X, if youre still on, does that idea seem to be workable do you think? Instead of drilling a hook for each harness to attach to?

Thanks!

I suppose that would work ok, as long as you find studs. Does the closet pole bracket stick out far enough though? You know what I put in my closet, that I'm looking at now and think would work well? Go in the closet isle and they have those modular shelving kits....You would end up with a shelf above your tank, but i don't see how that could be a bad thing...
Something like this...(just the shelf with hangar, not the rest of the junk...)

I will be installing it under the canopy so a shelf while nice, would be lost on me. lol

I was thinking those old school wood ones, kinda like a 6 foot dowel.

A pole under the canopy? Are you going to shorten the hanging hardware?
