So I was due for new bulbs.... How badly, I didn't realize until I put them in Smile I replaced the 2 175W MH XM10ks and the 2 65W PC TruActinic 03's.

As a result, I'm now seeing that my corals were lacking the correct spectrum of light - they're really popping more now.. (the PC's were SO, SO old....)

So consider this a starting point for coral color. With my calc reactor dialed in and the new lights - I'm expecting the 6 month from now mark to be a LOT more colorful. And with that:


And a shot of the left:


And the right.

Umm...Aren't you the one who made the rule about no posting that reef stuff here in the cage?


Beautiful by the way!

Dang, now I have to come out of the cage to post.
Oh, wait, I have done that before, just not that often.

ya, but i think your tank still has room for 3 more corals, so it's still junior to Kips, who has to beat his corals back into the tank. Razz

Oh no doubt the tank is junior... It's also less than half the size.

That - and quite a few of the corals in it are from frags of his Smile

When my tank grows up it want's to be like Kips... Smile

It pained me to do so Smile

Oh - and the back glass... Never.. Smile

Tuxedo urchin may become a necessity pretty soon. My coralline is getting out of control.

come to the meeting on the 26th Smile

It's at Timmy's house. I can bring you some stuff. No acros - unless you want redbugs:(
or you could treat them first... Either way.

I'll dig out the list of what I have - I keep referring to them as "blue mille" or "pink prostrata" but they have like Northstar and ORA names for them... Got them written down somewhere. I need to get more organized and label them like kip does Wink
