    Halide Q & A

    I've looked everywhere for the XM 10K with no luck. I think I am going to try the Hamilton 10K or 14K in about a month. I will post my results then.

    The firefish are gone now. I haven't lost any chromis yet, we'll see how long they last. Acclimation box sounds like a good idea. I will have to look into one.

    Please help me color up my SPS corals, pictures attached
