Your bioload may be high with all those fish. I'm sure the tang police will chime in.

If the color of your skimmate is really light then you are probably skimming too wet meaning you are mainly collecting foam that breaks into water. If you can pull out dark and smelly stuff then you...

I have had great experience with the radium 20k bulb. It's not blue like all the other 20k bulbs.

I second that. If you are going the 175 rout I would skip it and go for the 150 HQI. The 150 actually is a little brighter than the 175. I would go with 2 bulbs.

you will get the best growth with the 10k as opposed to the 20k. The 20k however will give you better colors. I personally prefer the 20k

I float for about 10-15 minutes to get the temp stable. I add about the equivalent of half of the bag's water from my tank and let it sit for 15 minutes. Then I dump all the water into a bucket. Add...

Wait a little while. The reefkeeper elite is coming out and will blow all the other controllers out of the water. I have the reefkeeper 2 and I'm extremely happy with it. Super easy to setup and use.

I have the deltec mce300 and by far one of the best purchases I've made for my tank. It is very quiet (the remora is not). Deltecs blow away any other HOB skimmers.
