I've read that a flame hawk should be avoided around small gobies and blennies as well so not sure if THAT would be another issue....

Having alot of tanks is kinda fun usually but then you have situations like this LOL
LOL. Maybe the Blenny wouldn't be as aggressive to the Bream and Red Coris since they were there first.....but I understand what you are talking about with the Hawk.....

Hey Carey, I heard from fort that you have a taotronics led fixture. Is it controller compatible? Is yours dimmable? How do/did you like it?

Mine is not dimmable or useable with a controller. Wish it was! LOL But for less than $200 it's a great deal in my opinion.

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

True. I'm really hoping the dimmable one is able to be used with a controller. Its definitely the cheapest high quality fixture on the market.

I would have to agree. Almost sorry I have the one I do and not the dimmable one. Do you have a link for the dimmable ones by chance?

I have a group buy going for dimmable LEDs that are controllable from Apex or Reef Keeper. The price per fixture is $250. Let me know if you are interested and I can get you details. But, you would have to move quick.
