I'm a long ways away from that even though my bird's nest needs pruned pretty badly. Hopefully I can hold off a year so I can get into a new house so I have room for a bigger tank. That'll let me have a frag tank too.

Started a 4 gallon water change with the Kent salt that arrived yesterday. I love this stuff already. It took no time what so ever to mix up. IO and reef crystals are out, I'm sold on this stuff. No more going back to dilute after accidentally mixing up above 28. 2 cups of this stuff gave me 26 on the dot, beautiful.

Still waiting on the other part of my order to show up, with Jullian's thing and other goodies. It'll be here today. So will the r2g order with pods that I'm trading my gbta for. I'll be happy to have that guy gone. He never opened up well and is in prime coral real estate.

Speaking of corals, it looks like all is well. Nothing really of note has changed with the exception of my plate coral. I have worried about it since I got it. The white just concerned me, and the pics on the internet showed it having a more blue or purple inside, though still white. I took a picture of it and it showed the center looking like that, so I wasn't overly concerned. I look back and compare it to today, it is actually getting this coloring as it adjusts to the tank. Can't wait for it to continue to color up.

Ya I've been sold on Kent for a year now. Wouldn't mind trying the higher end ones though like salinity, h20, or red sea coral pro.

Well, gbta is gone. Hopefully he moves off the rock so I can eat it back lol. Will put the pods in when I get home from work.

I started talking to a guy on Craigslist about a 90 gal with stand. Real good deal. That and it comes with a t5ho. My thought is if I get it to team up the radions and the t5ho together to get some better colors out of my corals. Give them some nice uv action.

Led and t5 hybrids look amazing from what I've seen. I'd pull out the old wavelength graph pics, but they wouldn't do much since it seems like you're already convinced lol.

i took these and related them to a high quality mh bulb.. because theyve been proven to give great results. if you want any more for a specific bulb just ask, im sure ill find it somewhere, i believe these are called spectrographs
