Carey, check walmarts bathroom/cleaning section, should find a stainless steel, extendable scrubbed wand for about 5 bucks. I use one on my tank and it does wonders, also reaches bottom without getting your hands wet

thats what I got , fist or baseball sizes in there. Busted up a new piece of base rock and threw some of my live rock rubble I had in the cube into mine. i also added a thing of reef pods whenI first started it, not like I needed to. It's scary how many I have and they all seem so big and gross at nite. lol

I'm gonna go have a looksie and see what going on in there. make sure my seahare isnt in danger though I think he knows better by now.

maybe unpack one, throw the bulbs in and just see what your working with then take the bulbs out and repack the fixture. dont know if you saw my pictures or if a person could even tell the difference. but mr_x gave me a light combo that worked really well for our tank.
