Yep. Found the guy on CL. I've been trying to trade him for days. $300 brand new condition. Hopefully I won't have to buy new bubs right away. My next stop is sump or wet/dry. The latter is gonna be so much cheaper but I don't see it being long term.

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

yep she did

what kind of bulbs are you goign to get for it? i've been looking at the ATI purple plus and true actinics but that might be to much blue

as for the sump i still say go wit hthe sump/fuge specially if you are goign to keep it for a while, you can always have just a fuge and hang your remora off the side of it

I use the ati aquablue plus and the actinics on my 55g. It gives it a more blue/warmish hue. Much better than straight 10k's. I would probably go with with ATI's again. Maybe go with 2 UVL bulbs, 4 aquablue specials for the whites and 4 420 and 2 460's on the blues. I think that will give me a nice deep consistent color.

I used him as leverage to get a guy with the same fixture in Tampa down to 250. I told him I was closer to Orlando then Tampa, but I would drive further if he would come down. I live WAY closer to Tampa then Apopka, lol.

I know, I tried. I tried to use the guy in Tampa as leverage when he went to 250. HAHA that guy was stiff. I just wouldn't go 300, I will never pay list on something because it means they will take less 90% of the time.
