55 Gal Mixed Reef.

Changed up my build. Went for a 55 for a few months until I get my 120. Here are some photos of some recent purchases.

Ya i cant wait...also cant wait to order new bulbs...in the new year that is. Picked up an 8 lamp nova for real cheap...might be overkill for the tank but oh well. Couldnt pass on the price.

Guy was selling one near me for $250, I wanted to buy it just cause it was such a great price lol.

You should start looking at bulbs now, they can be really really expensive, especially if you're gonna need 8 of them. lol ATI's are around $20 each from my shopping experiences.

Bulk reef supply gives discounts of about a buck or so per bulb if you buy in quantity so check them out for sure. We will probably be doing another group buy with them in maybe february or march and the price drops another buck or then. So keep an eye out for that thread when i start it. lol

I know!! When I got the email I was like DANG! LOL

I can't complain, I replaced the bulbs in my 12 bulb lights through a group buy and won that week!! So I got $173 refunded to me and my bulbs for free. I never win anything either so it was sweet

Thanks Carey...I'm hoping that they open up soon as they are really pretty when they are fully open.
