Kk I suppose education is important. May I make a request and see if we can get a good quality pic maybe uploaded to photobucket or something like that. Attached pictures never really have the greatest resolution. I think we may share similar taste in lighting and I would really like to see how it looks in a higher def. If not oh well.

I will try my best
So far my homework looks kind of freaky studying next to the aquarium.
Funny that it looks so blue-ish while the room is white-ly illuminated

Ur assumption would be that he drove ALL the way from Virginia down to Florida just to check out my lights
doubt he wants to check out my "fixture" LOL

Ok, so here are some pictures for you guys
Sadly I dont have a good camera, only the one on my iphone... spending all my money on tank-stuff
In reallity the light is not blue like in those pics
also, i was unable to really play around with the fixture as one of my dogs had to play with one of the bulbs and broke it



here is the combo:
front
ATI Blue Plus
ATI Aqua blue special
ATI Blue plus
KZ Fiji Purple
GE Midday (6000K)
ATI Actinic
KZ Coral Light (10 000K)
ATI Blue Plus
back

It is crazy bright with a hint of blue and purple
Im kind of worried that my corals will get bleached, but there is no way of knowing yet... also I cant say anything about how the colors look bc nothing is inside besides LR... and the LR looks pretty cool white



here is a pic of the egg crate for coffeewitch to check out



full tank view, again: its not THAT blue, and the room looks like in a tanning salon where the tanning bed is open LOL



temperature wise it's not that bad. Got my heater on 77 and temp in tank reads 78-79... i can live with that

noise? what noise? My pistol shrimp that I got for my randall yesterday is louder than my ENTIRE tank



and I got two emerald crabs for the 30g


please let me know what ya think
also, what is your oppinion about the leaching-out corals with that setup?
I know Carey has a 12 bulb system with lots of blue in it... no bleaching?!?!?!

yeah well my phone doesnt show where people are from. so it truly was all assumption. my sweety pie is on this site, didnt know if yours was too.


and thank you for the pic of the egg crate. i never thought of leaving the middle open.

wonder if i would have problems with the eel. if i did left the middle open.

do you like how your tank looks?

i get that the pictures dont do the tank justice because my pictures dont really look like my tank. i remember you saying that you didnt want 80's porn blue. did you avoid that with this setup?
