Finally got new lights installed.

I got all my new lights installed and WOW they are bright. I went from mogul base retro kits to sun replicator pendants. I also added another 500 watts of MH and 224 watts of antic and moonlights. The 14k DE bulbs do not have any of the blue hue the 14k moguls did. I wish I had some of the blue back. I may go with 20k bulbs next time unless the corals do really well with these bulbs. You should see the power meter spin now. 8O

I was just about to say that power meter might come flying out like a frisbee. But you should have good results

I wonder if cutting a hole in your roof would work for corals? You would save alot of money on the electric bill and replacement bulbs.
