I have my lights set up and have started moving some things into the tank. My watchman goby seems to like his new home!

Rich, may I suggest you move the PH's up? It'll take a couple of days to clear, but it's looking good.

Meant power heads, but them being that low, I figured u would have that issue. If you look at my 90g build, you'll see how I had mine. Move them up and back. Face them toward the front glass. You will get ur pH up and have good flow.

Raising the power heads and pointing them towards the surface will give you better surface agitation, which will give you better gas exchange and help stabilize your PH levels. Removing the glass tops will help it even more, but that's your personal preference.

I don't have any experience with it, but Nova extreme pro is a good fixture. As long as the fixture has individual reflectors you should be good.

Do you have a link for this fixture? I'm looking to upgrade my lights and the only 8 bulb fixture I could find is the one made by aquatic life.
