thats a steal for a 55g. everyone around me asks top dollar for a used tank. oh a fun little fyi. a 40 breeder has a larger foot print than a 55g. im not sure of the measurements of a 60 but i think its the best of both. its got the volume and square inches.

Craigslist is one of my closet friends.

Oh yeah, sounds like you were set up nice with the water, rock and sand. Thats something I will have to do.

Did you build your own led or buy a set? I want to get leds but 2k for lights is way out of my price range.

I use ecoray 60D. I have 3 units. Total cost for the three were 1050$. The PAR ratings are excellent on these.

Thats a good price. Since you have them and they look good to me I will look into them. My supplier suggested the new ecotechs at 680 each and I would need three. I think my truck is worth around that much.

I love the Eco rays. When only the blues are on my tank looks electric. And their ratings are outstanding.

Kinda sad. But I'm not really into material things, except for this hobby. I will drive my truck until its not fixable. This hobby is great, but it is addictive. You can spend several thousands and still lose fish and coral.
