75 is less than half price. It still works great it is currently pulling out some nasty gunk out of my 120.

that is how I had mine pointing. but I had k3's and they would blow the sand around if I pointed them down. The k3's work great in my 120 so if you are eventually going to upgrade then go with them. you just have to work a little harder on placement. what you are looking for is no dead spots and the top of the water rippled to help O2 exchange.

Should be ready this week. Your in Nebraska? Cornhuskers look good this year. they may be contenders.

Probably 2/3 of the way down pointed toward the top center of the front of the tank. you really must experiment. every setup is different because of LR setup.

I will also have an aquatic life 48" 2 bulb fixture for sale for around the same price if you are interested. It lit my 55 well

Even better. The only thing standing between you and the BCS bowl is Ohio state. you guys are UNBEATABLE at home so....

Have you bought anything yet? aquacave has the sunlight supply retrofit kit for the cheapest price I have seen (and free shipping). Coupon code - CM241 for 5% off.

same price....different bulb setup. The Giesemann laps are worth the extra 6 buck each one actinic + and one aquablue + should give you a very nice 20-22k blue.

Lights bought. Thanks for the tip. Much cheaper than what I was looking into.
