    why did my raspberry milli turn green?

    I bought a red mille a while back that seemed to turn green almost overnight after I acclimated it. But I gave it some time and it now looks like this 3 mos. later, I didnt move it up or down or anything I just left it alone

    New Colonies arrives @ 62 degrees?? What to do?

    Hey balnkenship, They look really stressed, but I would not worry at all, cold is alot better than hot. BTW the other one is not a pocilopora its a millepora and the color doesn't look half as good as it did when I sent it, the stupid fedex guy could'nt find your house so he just didn't bother...

At that time only 6.45% of voters used T5 lighting and 49.82% used MH lighting (the other 44% belonging to several other types). I thought it might be interesting to see how the...

    T5 VS. Metal Halide

    Avatar71, No it does not. Most people think that when the T5 "gurus" say that T5s use less power than Mhs they mean that 400w of MHs use more power than 400w of T5s, but this is not true. Watts IS power consumption, so 400w of light consumes 400w of power whether it be MH,T5 or an shop light in...

    T5 VS. Metal Halide

    johnjr, If all that info was accurate you would have a pretty strong case , but it's not. You say that you would need 15 54w t5s to equal that of a 2x400w MH set-up, but where you slip up is assuming that wattage=light output. When you look on a vendor site they give you the wattage of a light...
