Lol yes, my 4 year old son is obsessed with scooby, he will mumble the words for every episode, if you look at my last pic, in the bottom left is my face lol.

On a more fish related topic, my 96w square-pin cf bulbs are 53 bucks a piece at my lfs.....pleeeaseee help me in finding a reputable online store that I can get them cheaper...I'm running on 1 10k white and 1 actinic right now

why not upgrade from PC to T5s, you can find great deals on e bay for them and just buy quality lamps from marinedepot or something

I'm def gonna upgrade, there's no question about that, but I'm gonna use my current fixture and simply gut it out and buy some t5 retrofit kits, would love to run 8 bulb setup but don't think I can fit that many in this hood...what would you recommend for low-mid light corals?? I may go led, but haven't decided, I love diy projects so if I go the led route, I'd be buying the diy led kits and fabricating a hood
