i wonder how many plasma lights it would take to light a 20g? And I wonder about the par value as well. Who knows, they may be the next thing to come along in aquaria.

So, general consensus is a wrasse will be ok without a lid in my 125g? Are there any wrasses that have higher jump rates than others? I was looking at the exquisite wrasse and a few other colorful ones.

I'm gonna add slowly and methodically for now on, at least I hope I can keep to that. LOL

I figure getting another fish this week or next and going the qt route again. I will only buy multiple fish if I go for a schooling type, like the blue reef chromis which I have to add all at once. BUT! if I order online then I will be forced to order more fish as to save on the $35 shipping they jack you with.

I know I want a midas blenny, 3 of the chromis, maybe a kole tang (can get him locally but would prefer to have the guarantee) a wrasse and maybe another fish. I'm still in love with the anthias. I think I would get another squareback and I for sure would have to order that online.

Putting m,ultiple fish into qt worries me though, if just one fish has something then ALL the fish will have something. I also have 2 10g tanks I could use and theres always the 55g in the garage I could set up, but it gets awful hot in there. lol

What do you guys think?

Sweet. Being in the electrical contracting bus for 30+ years we are just starting to see LED in practice but not very often because of the price. Usually on lon LEED projects where they want to show the world how "Green" they are. Hadn't Heard of the plasma technology.

I'm still trying to figure out LED's LOL. I think I am gonna move/sell a tank so I have the wall space to put my rimless tank and hang the leds'.

i wonder how much a plasma bulb would be...maybe it would work as a spotlight application.
