That's great! I have a 6 bulb 20" nova extreme pro that was awesome on my cube, trying to sell both, but now the cube is going to be a hyposalinity QT.

Carey, are you at HD buying supplies?

I made the rounds today, all corals for the pico though. LOL
Took me a few hours to find a fixture and HD was in the list. hehe

How much did you want for that 20" light? And that skimmer if you still have it?

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

Lol, I do have it. The light is new, I added 4 led bulbs to the metal reflector part (bought a kit, no diy electrical for me), so It was $275 all together, looking for $200 including shipping it. (165 ish for light and 25 ish for shipping). The skimmer I want $40 for, will ship for free with light otherwise, I think it is going to be $8 as it is about the size and weight of the other boxes I sent you. I used the light for two months, so the bulbs should be good for a while, I think someone said a year for T5HOs. Let me know if you want either.
