He didn't mention when he was listing but I do know he just got them in.

I love my new lights! It's kinda weird though, there are 3 whites and 3 blues on each side but one of the blues is on the switch for the whites. So the switches control 4 bulbs and two bulbs. The websites I've been looking at this fixture on don't mention this. I tend to like a bluer tank anyways so it should be ok for me.

Thanks guys!

I'm hoping for a next to nothing cycle since I'll be moving my 55g over.

I am now looking at power heads. i was liking the koralia 1400's. Would 2 of those and my 2 750's be enough circulation?

I'm just gathering what i can so far. the lights were a BIG item but at least I got them out of the way. Just need sand, some more base rock I think, a filter and some powerheads.

Am I missing anything? lol

I found this sump on ebay. it looks like what I want. I'm also gonna start emptying the tank soon. I have faith that it's gonna keep holding. Plus once it's empty I'm gonna fill in the crack completely with that epoxy. It looks like it will hold if I can fill it level.

it would probably be easier to fill when its on its side. if its runny it'll just pool in the chip/crack

that sump works also, its not the biggest but its not a bad size and i'm sure will house your skimmer a allow for a good ammount of chaeto.

are you goign to be using a DSB in the DT?

I wasn't planning on it. I was thinking about 150 lbs of sand. Gonna go with pool filter sand this time around.

What's your opinion on the dsb? Do you run with one? Any benefits?
