Well I decided to bite the bullet and change out my terrible lights for some LEDs. My lfs
was having a nice sale on Hydra52s. So I went ahead and started to buy them. Right now I have two out of the three I need, just trying to save some money for the last. Now I can really see how bad my lights were in the first place, and understand why all my corals, Nems, and even fish hated it. Since adding the new lights the corals have opened and grown, and the fish have become more lively, (both nems were returned before lights were purchased). Anyway I'll keep you all updated when I get the third but here are some pictures so far.
The difference is mind boggling!
