WOOT Thanks everybody

Chris i guess this means yous Owns this Split....

"Nick, i feel real bad about this. Like i said before, the first day i went over the light on the 20L was off, and i figured you just shut it off for some reason. Less algae growth or for whatever reason. I never tried to turn it back on."


hold on Tim this is my total irresponsibility. if anything had happened it would have been 110% my fault period end of story. i ran that light with salt creep all over the electrics. I am a freaking moron.

you are the best tanksitter Evarrrrrr! no worries, i had 2 free corals in that tank and both are so used to low light they are still fine after 3 weeks

I am off to the Salty Critter to buy a used (thank you Dan) 250w HQI ballast ( i have an old ocean light pendant) to put over my 20long. this tank has pretty much no light for a year, the old light was a 2 year old 10k 65w Powercompact with an inch of salt on it..

so 65wpc to 310w MH 20k haha im going to start the bulbs 20 inches off the water

i will also buy corals to take pictures of for this thread.

I like the new light Nick, but I would see if it is possible to clean off the rust since it is in plain site.

Your PC fixture didn't have a plastic shield?

Is there an annoying amount of light that goes out into the room with it hanging that high? Nice job on the cleanup btw. Looks a lot nicer!
