Thanks! No, I'm actually using one of the 150w 14k phoenix fixtures from my 75. It's just a temp setup until we can get something better worked out. Probably a 30 breeder.

Good to know you can get that much growth with using 14k. I remember reading your a big fan of the Phoenix 14K bulbs.

We are moving over some corals from the 75 that we are selling and trying to clear out before we move also.



What a sweet little setup. I love all the colors; let's see some closeups.

Yea, I don't know how the growth rate compares to 10ks and other bulbs, I just know for me I like the color and the way it makes our corals look. All of our corals have grown well under them.. but we don't keep SPS or anything that's very difficult to grow.

Nice! I haven't been to Centerville Aquarium either. I guess we will just have to make a day of it today. I have been to Annandale Super Pets several times. I'm not crazy about this weather we are having but I guess it could be a lot worse!

"Looks exactly that color in person." lol, funny you should put it that way. unfortunately, any kind of display device (especially PC monitor) looks vastly different on different systems. ie, what you see isn't what I see even if we view the same image.

We got our Epoxy in the mail today. Now we can start trying to see how it works on our base rock so we can get things going finally!

Well NG we just got back from a world-wide-LFS tour. We started out at Centreville aquarium (not impressed) then went to Super Pets (been there before) they had some nice stuff today. Then we went to Wally's, decent fish selection but not that great on corals. While we were there they had the 180s standing on end and there was a 210 next to one of the 180s and so we have decided to upgrade our upgrade to a 210 just to get that extra height. Then of course on our way back home we went to Blue Ribbon Koi and picked up a beautiful lavender monti cap. (my wife picked it out) I also got some prices on the 210 and I will be getting it from BRK they beat the price of everyone else!!!! So it has been a long day and I'm acclimating the monti while I'm typing this. I'll get a pic of it posted.

Aww.. sorry to hear you didn't like CA. Did you look at their second store where all the tanks are? I thought they had a real nice selection.

BRK has a lot of corals for sure. I didn't even know they sold tanks. Nice find I'm glad you got a good deal on it =)

Monti sounds beautiful.

Blue Ribbon Koi - $14.95

cut equal amounts of the green and the purple and kneed them together until the color is consistant. I dry off the frag (on disk) or rock where I'm putting the epoxy and work it onto the area making sure it is nicely bonded. When you put the rock or frag in place in the tank try to clean the area a little if you can and then just press it in place. I usually take a little extra and work it in the area where I put the two pieces together just to make sure it is going to hold. After a day or two the stuff is rock hard.

Awesome product!!
