I LOVE this one! I could just see it now with all the corals and such... I think it's nice to leave room for the fish to swim...

Thanks =) That was kinda the idea... ledges/shelf for the corals, and holes for the fish to swim in. And increased flow.

Ok NG here is an action shot I think you will be hard pressed to beat. This pic makes all the time, blood sweat and tears (nevermind the money) worth it. This is my life!

Okay... so I'm thinking of maybe using a SunPod on my 120 Tech tank... I like that it's a one piece unit... which would help in trying to figure out how to mount my lights to make it look good.

The 48" 250w model has remote electronic ballasts.. the 150w has internal and I think non-magnetic ballasts. They come with moon lights which I like.

So? What do you think? Any good? Would I need 250w if I'm not doing SPS? I don't need T5 or PC actinic lighting.. I want to run just phoenix bulbs on this system.... I am assuming you can run the phoenix bulbs on them right?

the reflectors in the sunpod are crap compared to what you have now.

Did you think about using good T5 like a Aquactinitics Solar Flare or Constellation? I was thinking about that one for a 120TT.

Not if we don't do the in-wall. I am thinking we will start with the 120 outside that room, and when we can afford it get the 240 for the tangs and turn that room into the fish room. That will give us time to finish the room and seal it properly if we want to go that route.

Sorry if I'm covering old ground I have been out of town for a few weeks.

I thought there were some beautiful tanks without canopies in that Japanese reef tank thread that was up earlier today. Good luck!
