    Guaging interest in 40B

    :thumbsup: I couldn't figure out why my zoas seemed to always wither away. Decided to pull my emerald crab out just in case. A week later my zoas started coming back... steady growth ever since.

    Solar tubes

    If you live in arizona or socal it's a guarantee, but in NorCal you need to plan it right. Figure it just like you would solar panels. find the side of your house that gets the most sunlight and plan your tank and solatubes around that. If you can manage at least 6hrs of direct sun on a spot on...

    I looked into these like crazy. Seemed like a good way to go, but would want to supplement with blue an royal blue LEDS.

    Yikes! Tank cracked!

    I'll be praying for you (if you dont mind). I know how a little water on the floor can cause some major stress.
