I second that--very well deserved. I was wondering when you would get TOTM.

Great tank, see what happens when you change to 20k's? TOM.
but seriously, from your webpage I see you have the premium aquatics lighthouse controller, yet you made no mention of it in the tank write up. Do you like it?

Question for Sunnyx, you said you swithched from 10k to 20k. Were the 10k's also 400 watts? how high are the bulbs off the water and if you did use 400 watt 10k's, did you have any corals lighten up under them?

So how old is your orange cap? What are the approximate dimensions of that bad boy.

Congrats Sunny. I had a feeling it was coming.

By the way, you didn't mention how you cooled your system. Your site displays live tank stats and it's always nice and cool.

Weird as Skipper's post has July 2nd as the date but I've been checking for the new TOTM every 8 hours or more in the last 2 days.

Sunny, I see you're another Lugol's user. I never really contemplated dosing Iodine - do you really consider it necessary?

And the 20k XMs look super sweet. Do you think you'll get growth out of them? 10k XMs have a lot of par which might have contributed to your groth. But wow, they look great. I run 400w 14k's but when they go off and the tank is just lit by 4x96w PC, it sure does look pretty!
