That's what I meant by voltage regulator, couldn't think of what they're normally called:P

Think the inTank media rack is worth it? People seem to really love it.. May order it today

My favorite thing on my biocube was my intank media baskets. lol Made life so much easier and let me run exactly what I needed or wanted to run. Definitely worth the money.

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

Spot has been cleared and she's in her new home!!

Gonna try and ger the sand washed and in the tank today before work! Also the Jury has ruled that the hood has to stay.. So I'll just have to see what the quad cf can do and see what it can support, then make a decisions about a retrofit.

The stock light will support most softies and zoa's It the LPS/SPS that are more light demanding And your going to want the tank mature a bit before adding them anyways

For starting off the stock lights will do fine. As you get more experience you may want to keep higher light corals and then i would look into a different lighting solution.

Well my 20 is almost all SPS, have an open brain, bicolor frogspawn, and some candy canes, other than that it's completely SPS dominate, I have reef breeders on that tank and love them.

That's what I was afraid of with the stock lights..

Well the inTank basket should be here Thursday, still need to order a new bulb. Is there any other retrofits other than rapidLED that y'all know of?

And we're making progress!!

Update!

Not much has happened, got a new bulb, took two weeks to get it since the first one I was sent didn't work.. Still waiting for the cycle to drop nitrites then I'm good to go. Not going to take the rocks out of the 5g bucket until the cycle is complete, much easier to change water in 5g than 28g lol.

LOVE the inTank basket!! Think it'd be worth it to run cheato in the bottom of the basket?

Also I've been thinking of stocking options.. I want something that's cool but not super common haha, any ideas on that?
