New lights ordered and will pick them up tomorrow. I'm going with the pristige-led. Will ad photos tomorrow when on the tank. Went in to the store for a demo and liked the look. Going to be using ATI bulbs with the LEDs. Did.t care for the look with the blue and white LEDs that I am running now. So I will have the best of both worlds du.ing T5 and LEDs.

Okay picked up the lights today. (Prestige LED Gamma)


Two ATI coral plus and to blue plus.

Here is a look at how its packed




And the light side of the fixture before taking off the plastic in order to put the T5's in.



And a closer look.



Not to crazy about the legs.



They sit way to close to the water level. But look good inside the tank.

So got the lights in to the canopy and liking it so much better. I've got to find a way to get people interested again. Possibly the water changing system I'm about to make?

Wow, that's quite the lighting system you added in there. It looks great

So far I like it. Didn't like the look of the stand so hung it back in the canopy. Also got it higher than 4" of the water. I liked my T5s better than the LED's so now u have the best of both worlds

It's been a long time here. The tank is doing okay got some algae growing but not bad. Corals have some good growth but not the best color. Got a new shrimp to get rid of all of the star fish
