There is a small pet store that in my town that has some really cool people working that are very honest and I trust them however don't always agree with them. The only problem is they don't stock a whole lot of anything for Saltwater. So I end up using the internet for purchases. I Love the Lunar light look at night its a cool effect but thats all it is really an effect.

I agree with Kurt. I had a LFS in town, the owner didn't know much about SW fish and would ask me questions while I was visiting (if I didn't know the answer, I would post here) and let him know when I went back in. They went under because they wouldn't sell to people if they didn't think the critter would be cared for (kinda my fault). It's such a shame that folks can be so uncaring. Fish/critters are no different than dogs, cats, birds, I can go on....sigh...Sorry for the rant. I think we have had an influx of folks that just don't want to listen....
OK, off my soapbox....

Age is relative, you are only as old as you act....of course, this works in reverse....

Questions loved, heeded advice greatly appreciated!

Well for what its worth I have lunar lights on my tank and have since the first drop of water hit the bottom of the tank. Mine stay on 24/7. You can't tell it during the day when the MHs are on but at night it give a nice effect and I like it. I'll have them on the 210 when I upgrade as well.

It is a personal choice and has nothing to do with algae growth.

Cool, I believe I just caught the wrong guy at the wrong time. I was also talking to a fellow customer and salesman that same day, they praised the lunar lights and mentioned nothing about the algea problems. You all are right, collectively, this is the best source for information out there. I have started reading the articles on this site and browsing the BB for interesting bits of information. Thanks for all the help and information.
