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

I wish there were some good lfs in my area. There is one here in town but I wouldn't trust them to buy anything. Their tanks seem to be less than desirable in quality and maintainance. The best stores that are close tome are 1-1.5 hours away. :'( so I can't go as often as I would like, especially with my work schedule.

I have changed my lighting for this tank.

Just pikced up a jbj viper 2 metal halide clip on. 150w with a 14k bulb.

Looks ok, surprised its not much brighter though and not as blue as I thought.

I'm thinking of buying a 20k bulb for it.

Any thoughts?

I was thinking of adding one of these

R2 Solutions Moonlight 11000 MC

But I;m worried about attaching it to the metal halide fixture as it gets UBER hot. Unless I put it on the part that holds it to the the tank.

That moonlight would Probly look good and they're located in Orlando so maybe you could take a trip over there instead of waiting for It to be shipped, but yea about where to put it, just set up that fixture you bought and I'm sure you'll see some place to put it lol

Just placed a nice size order from marine depot! woohoo. Decided on two koralia 425's in the end over the 550's.

Also ordered some fragging equipment and some regeants for my phosphate electronic tester and a new backup aqualifter pump for my 125g's overflow.

Hopefully the stuff gets here quick They say they ship the same day as long as its before 6pm EST.

Woot, I love ordering new stuff!

Still not satisfied with the new halide fixture....I;m not sur what it is about it but it just seems so dim...
