Hi ....new here!

Got an email stating I should say hi and explained my tanks so here I go..

180 gallon used to be reef tank a year ago ,you will be able to tell from set up!

Light system---

3 x 150 watt HQI
Two 1 watt Lunar Blue-Moon-Glow 470nm LED lamps
Built in cooling fan
10,000K HQI Lamp included
True Actinic 03 Blue Power compact lamps

Filter----

400 sump with bio balls
Marineland canister 100 gallon

Pump
Turbo 1250

Just started turning it into a planted tank,plan on adding co2 system as soon as I figure out best one to buy and how to use them properly...
So there you have it...also have a 40 gallon corner tank nothing exciting besides its in a wall and has glow fish set up for the kids my kids....

Welcome to AA! 180g planted tank sounds nice... post a journal/pics in the Planted Tanks sub forum

BTW, are you going to change out the actinic lighting to something more plant friendly (closer to 6500K)?

Probably not since I'm running 3x 150 watt metal halides with it I'm sure that's more then enough light!!! And I like the blue at night for about an hour before lunar lights go one!!!
