Yep right now im in the research phase, its a 36" long tank, which is perfect in my opinion for what it will be used for. This tank will house strictly young corals in growth, waiting for next year when my 360g can be built.
So far I've researched everything from T5HO to MH
, to LED
, and Im leaning towards starting with a 36" 6 bulb t5ho setup, then as the corals i do aquire begin to start growing I think the next lighting purchase will be the 36" Aqua Illumination LED
setup. Those lights alone are retail 1699.00. Im hoping that I can start picking those lights up at wholesale pricing, I've got an application in with AI, so we'll see what they think. I dont currently own an LFS
but as funding becomes more available, and my experience in the hobby becomes more useful I will be working towards expanding my current business (Retail Computer Sales and Repair store) to add a Saltwater reef store adjacent to my current building.
Im getting more and more disgusted with the retail computer business every day, my products aren't moving like they were 2 years ago, or 15 years ago. I still make money on repairs, and my yearly service contracts, but income has substantially declined since the economy took a nose dive back in late 2009 early 2010.
