The spread is there considering how my light is just a narrow line of LEDs down the middle, though I dont keep SPS there as the PAR does drop off. With LED ive found its about coral placement, you have to be clever with scaping to make sure there are no shadow spots from other corals.

Thanks Steve, I think though with T5 or MH it would look better with more colors showing up...cant wait for the violet pads from vertex to bring out some more reds hopefully!

I like the tank but am I the only one that thinks most of the acros look pail? Like they are getting too much light or not enough nutrients?

Im struggling to get nutrients up, I test my PO4 on a full size hana and a friends egg and get 0 to 0.01

just increased fish load so hope that helps.

im pumping in the zeo xtra, k balance, b balance and AA too to try bring nutrients up...might try turning the skimmer off for a few hours a day

any upcoming updates? Your tank is absolutely stunning and is making me indecisive on whether or not to switch to LEDS from T5s. Any pros overall since you've switched to LEDs?

i had the vertex illumina, wanted to try something new. I pre-order in Australia where im from so not sure where you can order them in singapore.

I do like LEDs, though T5 ive found will give you better color. I have my old ATI PM on my tank now while i wait for the GHL's, and my colors have improved after a week. its the subtle colors that show more, reds pinks purples which dont look too good under LEDs with w;b;rb colors only...thats why i want to play with the GHL as it has more colors in the unit to play with.

Cleaned the back glass and soaked the pumps....such a big difference in flow after cleaning the pumps my sand blew everywhere!

illumina is sold so my old ATI is back on until the GHL Mitras arrive.

here is a current pick

true believer in T5's, my tank gives me no opportunity for that type of lighting, and the common sense thing to do in my case would be to go led... Not sold, still rocking the 150 halide with phoenix 14k bulb... Your tank is amazing, regardless of lighting, your plan is succesfull inherintly... Great Job!

Phoneix 14k is still my favourite light source, my old tank had 2 250w and wow loved that color!
