I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

Don't fret about how long it will take you. I'm building my 55 on about $50 a month, and it's slow and frustrating at times, but I've also found each purchase means more and I value it more than if I just plunked down a couple of grand and gotten the dream tank all at once. It also gives you more time to learn, and change plans without wasting money!

Oh i definately agree with you, i spend most of my day sneaking in a few pages of learning on different pieces of hardware or learning about a new coral. Im hopefully gonna limit myself to one major purchase every two weeks or so.

Cool. Look forward to reading it. Are you getting the fixture or the modules?

Awesome, I will definately be subscribing to view the progress on that. I am really interested to see which lights work.

Still kinda partial to the first fixture Mr. X showed me due to the price and the color he got out of his corals.

I just got one module for now to see how it works and I'm hoping the color will come out good, I got wh,bl,wh,bl..., I'm a big fan of nice blue color and I bought it for $105 with tax at my lfs and I was prepared to pay $190 so I'm pretty happy with the price...as long as they work well lol
