    How long should I leave the lights on?

    I have 2 165w LED fixtures over a 55 gal. They are about 8" above the water. How long should I leave them on for LPS and SPS corals?

    SMS 122 Question

    My controller isn't kicking on when I change the dial. I can run it from one end to the other and my tester shows no voltage when the plug is plugged in. The cord from my solenoid was worn and I'm thinking it may have shorted the power plug. Is it possible to get a replacement power plug(or...

    T-5 over a 55 gal question

    I'm a little embarrassed to be asking this. I'm being forced to downsize. I'm going from a 150 gal to a 55 gal. Will I need a quad bulb fixture to support SPS like monti's or will a dual bulb be enough? I have MH and T-5's over my 150 but they're going with the tank. I know I'll need to...

    Is there a cheaper alternative for a sandbed?

    I want to redo my tank including the sand bed. Is there a cheaper sand alternative than loading the car up with bags from the fish store? You used to be able to get stuff from Home Depot but they don't sell it anymore.

    Today really, really sucks

    Thank you for all the kind words and thoughts. My other dog misses her as well. He has really bad seperation anxiety and ate my plantation shutters. I came home to a pile of splinters. I don't know what set him off but it must of been something else. I felt so miserable Wednesday night I didn't...

    Today really, really sucks

    I had to put my greyhound CSI down today. She ran into the patio door the day before yesterday and started howling in pain. I took her to the vet and x-rays showed her leg broken. It looked like someone snapped a toothpick. When the surgeon looked at the pictures he said that the reason it broke...

    Want to buy a 250w or 150w MH ballast and light

    I miss the look of my MH lights. With my current set up my 400w's are too strong and I'd like to go back to a 250 or even a 150. I'd likea HQI setup depending on price. I'll also take just the ballast, I can wire the light myself.

    Can I vent?

    IT reminds me of when you watch a show like Pawnstars. They have the expert come in and say something is worth $1000. Then they ask "Well, how much do you want for it?" "He said it was worth $1000 so $1000." From a pawnshop? Gimme a break! I'm having a cluster of small benign tumors removed...

    Can I vent?

    I'm getting really frustrated. I used a mag 5 to run my calc reactor and it cratered. Now I'm going into the hospital next week(the stress maybe making me a little sensitive) and I'll be down a while so my money is tight. I was looking on ebay and Amazon for a cheaper used one. People are...
