Make sure they're HO T5 and not NO T5.

Quick update on the aiptasia: I may have won a few battles, but I might lose the war. I mentioned earlier that I initially saw just one, today I found three babies. Plus, the original one almost doubled in size in just a few days. So I went to the LFS and got a bottle of Joe's Juice. When I killed the large one, it felt kinda good. Does that make me a bad person? Tonight, I'm going to take a flashlight and cover every possible square inch of the tank. Unfortunately, there might be some aiptsia still hiding in some holes of my Fiji LR. I'm hoping for the best, but expecting the worst.

It should feel good. I felt pretty good after I killed like 6 of them at least....

a good lamp is compact flourescant with metal halides and led's. led's for night time, compact flourescant for general lighting, and corals, and metal halides especially for the corals. get one lamp that has 3 in one, you will love it. look for one with a timer for all 3. that is a plus!

While I've been establishing my tank, I've been researching some acceptable corals for the various lighting I'm looking at. I'm going to keep the pc lights, but I know that I'll need to supplement the lights. My mind says MH so that I could get any type of coral, but my wallet says otherwise. I figure that I have a little bit of time, but I want to make my purchase before I get any corals.

For now, you should be able to keep softies like zoas and mushrooms easily. While keeping them, save up for MH. Try ebay and craigslist for cheap deals.
