Yep stock lighting with what the tank came with. 2 x PL 24W-10, 000K daylight/actinic bulbs and 2 blue LEDs. The fuge lighting is the white LED undercabinet fixtures you can buy at Home Depot. The tank just looks nice because there is stuff inside .

nietzsche, Thanks!

zhenjw, Nice good stuff.

So over the weekend my bro-in-law brought me some goodies...
I got some pink zoos and a nice cluster of hulk palys. Im gonna take some pics tomorrow and post em.

Also I noticed my red zoos not opening up and lookin like they were dying. I found this thread about dosing with vitamin c. I started dosing yesterday. Ill see what happens in the next few weeks and I'll update with some good results im hoping. So far looks good from what others have noticed...

http://reefcentral.com/forums/showth...readid=1252294

Also, Happy New Year!

So i checked my tank around 11pm last night to see if my vitamin c dosing was working and so far it looks pretty good. A few of my red (sunshine) zoos started opening up again and lookin pretty good. Ill post some pics later of all my new goodies and see whats going on. Im thinkin of takin my hulk palys back cuz they are a lil large... Also I think im going to take my tux urchin back since he is eating a lot of coraline algea... Maybe cuz I like him! haha

I noticed last night that my water flow wasnt as strong so I took the pump out and it was pretty clogged with crud. I cleaned it out and had all that good flow back. My zoos opened up a lot more. I think with the vit c and my flow back they are going to do just fine. Im going to the LFS to get me some filter floss cuz I didnt have any! Ill post some pics later after I get some stuff done.

So far tank has been running great. Got a hydro flo which works great and everything in there seems to like it. I havent seen my hi fin goby in a few days so I hope his not dead that would make me sad!

Next project is to put a lil refug in chamber 2 with some chaeto and some LRR too... Anyone have any suggestions on what to light the chaeto with and how long? Also, I am going to have my LEDs on a seperate plug thanks to theclearblue.
