Last night added an inch (10lbs) of miracle mud to my fuge.. Well see if I believe the hype in a few months but at least it got a whole lotta trace elements in it and not risky like a DSB can be sometimes

I know the fish I want now..but what about corals? 4bulb aquatic life(individual reflectors).. I was thinking different zoas all on the bottom, some LPS 11" up and maybe 1 or 2 monti or acro 6"from the top... My light is directly over my rock work if that helps

You may want to hold off on the sps as they do best under MH. They only survive under LEDs.

Zoas are all different in requirements. So you may see them happy in other places of the tank. Also- there are a lot of LPS that thrive on the sand bed.

this is not true with quality led fixtures you can get growth way better than any mh. just look at mr.x. build.. there its plenty of information in that build about LED lighting. a little research can go a long way

Idk if I'll ever go MH b/c of heat and bulb cost but LED, eventually. I will probably convert or supplement sometime next year... Until then I may try one cheap piece of lower light SPS to see if it will live after I replace my bulbs with ATI ones.
