I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

As long as its a heavy duty can so it doesn't bow out from the water weight you're good. I got a brute. No wheels but it is double thickness.

It's a good half inch thick? First batch will be mixed In the tank, while empty...
From there, only need 5-10 gallons at a time?

Sooooo glad I was smart and got the wireless version, cos now I can just compound them later on when I need to. I will get another when I start corals for their tidal and reef crest modes.
Looks awesome!!

Thoughts on this fixture? Reef capable? Would an anemone do well under this when my system matures and is stable in the future?

Or this one? http://www.ebay.com/itm/36-Aquarium-...#ht_1244wt_689

I had a nem under those lights in my first 29g sw tank. he did ok, nothing too stellar. I ended up returning the nem so I don't know how he would have done in the end.

I do know I kept alot of corals under my odyssea fixture adn they all did very very well. At one point I managed to bleach a brain coral on the sandbed. So the power is there. BUT they arent made of the highest quality materials and it does show. But they work ok. If I needed a fixture again I 'might" out them on the list.

Have you tried fish need it;lights; food;Sponge

They have similar entry level fixtures that are a bit bette4r built with better reviews. Only thing is no moonlights. :-(

They have the same wattage...so I guess because I can get 3 white and 1 blue it's better??
