So do you guys think I can skip on the skimmer since I have a hob one already?

And what about the new bulbs...$240 just for bulbs puts me at $540 just for the lights...eeekk

well they could be old. don't know. I have alot of corals that will be going under them so I was worried that I might lose some if the lights not the same as what i run now. the bulbs are current ones, which means they are the original bulbs which concerns me.

I would use them and just be prepares to replace them as they go. I don't see why that would be an issue, just keep an eye on them and if you see one summing or burned go replace it.

I was also planning on the high end bulbs which total $240. i can get "current" brand ones for about $160, just won't have the same blue hues that I like with the ATI bulbs. LOL I just know if I don't do it now I won't have money when the time comes. Plus, I got a top of the line light, I'd hate to put crap bulbs in it. I'm pretty much building this tank around the great lights I bought. hehe
