Pray it is what? So you are saying that with whites only I am in trouble? It has been three days now I guess I need to get off my butt and get a light?

I'd hope it is ok, but I dont know much about that unit. I'd want to replace it ASAP.

So it has been two months and the light has nit been replaced. Corals are loosing color and starting to lose interest in the tank. It has been very disappointing to say the lest. Going to. It a good light but will not have the money till March. Thinking of breaking it down and starting over with all new rock and spending time on the aquascape. As well as building a new stand so it will be taller.

I wonder is anyone is still following this thread? So it has been a long time with one bad light but soon it will be replaced. Corals are still ok there colors are not all that good but still growing. Mid March I will order a new light for the tank. At this point I am leaning towards the 300w maxspect 16000k led. Any opinions on that light? All of the research I have done looks like this will be my best option. I don't want to go with another one that I will have problems with and not get any help from the manufacturer. I am also going to be making my new water changing station. Right now I am using a Rubbermaid trash can. I will bet buying some water storage containers one for fresh water and one for mixing. The one for mixing will have wheels and all plumbed up to be able to wheel up and pump back to the tank. It's all planned out I will add photos when I'm building it. Anyway thanks for reading and happy reefing!
