LED aren't expensive, you've been lied to =]

Posted 04/07/2010 at 07:02 PM by Mmckibben

hi, so we all know that the half decant led fixtures go for around $400-$600, we also Know that they cover only 12 to 18 inches. Who would buy such an expensive thing! Well, problem solved. This website sells pre wired led kits for $20 that include 4 cree xpg cool white leds, and 3 cree xpg royal blue leds. The best part is they only cost $22 each! Buy 4 of theses, and you have the same amount of light out put as the popular Aqua illuminmation system thats goes for $450! Once you gat a driver, you...

I treated the tank with a reef safe medication, and did the copper treatment on each fish. That did nothing!

Sand Questions

Posted 12/01/2009 at 04:33 PM by Mmckibben

Hi, I heard that in reef tanks you should have your sand blowing around enough so that it slowly forms hills and valleys that change all the time. I have 4 in of very fine sand mixed with crushed coral sand. I can't seem to get it to move around right. It either just moves around in one spot until all you see is glass, or it doesn't move at all. All I have are three 300 gph pumps (one is hooked up to a SCWD). I do plan to get a Vortech mp-10 for my sps corals. I just want to know how your get the...
