Changing Bulbs

Posted 04/08/2013 at 08:19 PM by Stolireef

I created a thread a couple of days ago indicating that I was 'angry with my tank'. The last several months have been very frustrating, to say the least. One of the responses questioned my lighting. While I'm sure I have plenty of 'watts per gallon', it did get me thinking.

When I first set up the tank, I used Radion LED's. I really didn't like the color or growth under them. As a result, I sold them to a fellow reefer (who loves them BTW) and purchased a Hamilton Belize with...

Tank blew a seal

Posted 04/07/2013 at 09:48 PM by ACBlinky

As I noted in my first blog entry, I've had my share of ups and downs in this hobby. Someone one described me as a builder rather than a custodian (in the caretaker rather than janitor usage). I think many of us in the hobby fall into my category. In my experience, the result is that we struggle to keep our hands out of the tank. We fiddle, we tweak, we adjust, etc. with few if any noticeable benefits.

I was thinking about my second successful reef tank this week as I was looking...
