Just so you know though, a fish would have to be pretty weak to get stuck on a mj1200. He was probably sick, or suffering from a really bad after acclimation.

I agree, scarlet hermits are the least aggressive. Blues are just about the worst.

If your looking at a 75g, also look at 90g as well. They have the same footprint, and you should be able to get it for about the same price. Sounds like your off to a good start!

Yes, the nova extremes are a very inefficient light. The reason t5 is as powerful as it is, is due to the individual reflectors for each bulb. The nova doesnt have that feature. You might as well...

I agree, bakpaks arnt very good, but its better than nothing, and at least its adding some extra flow. As for the powerhead. I would point it so it reflects off the glass, and if you get another...

Your not trying to keep these at the very top are you? If so try moving them close to the bottom.

Marco rocks, or Eco Rocks

I would like to hear from people who have tried both. Which would you buy again? Also, how is the spagetti rock from twopartsolution?

Looks great so far! I mustsay though that a150w mh ona 10g tank is plenty of light even for demanding sps and clams. Incandecent bulbs are very inefficient for reef lighting. At most if you could...

Sounds like its time to catch that damsel to me. And catch it at all costs even if it means pulling out the rockwork. I had to do it before, It wasnt that tough. Just have a few rubbermaids ready....

I think outgrow a 125 is an understatement. Unless you have at least a round 500g dont even think about it!

Again nothing that is anywhere near appropriate for a nano. Put a tang in your tank and the tang police on this board will come to your house and lock you in a closet till you agree to remove it. ;)

Those reflectors will hit a 3ft square each, and 250w is plenty of light for a 25in deep tank. I would do 2 of those with 2 or 4x54w t5 as said above. Btw... Before the boogeyman goes to sleep, he...

I wouldnt see why not. Hermits can live outside of water for plenty of time to superglue it on. Ive thought about doing it myself with a mushroom or a few zoos. How about a gsp hermit!
