I have been using mogul bulbs for over a decade now and never really considered the double-ended version. I don't think one is better than the other but rather just user preference.

Appreciate the photos and associated ID's. You have an amazing collection. Looking forward to the maturing of the tank in the years to come. The display will be incredible.

Hi Guys.

This seems to be a very promising reef tank. I do have a 350 Gallon reef savvy and I love the quality and how they make the tanks. quick question I cant see the pictures of your system, is it only me or anyone else have this problem?

Thank you

Tim, some amazing pictures of your pieces. I am switching my tank to SPS and might be interested in making a trip over to see you for frags if you have some to sell

Amazing build, I'm curious as to what you power requirements are to run this beast? Are you planning a backup generator?

Thanks again Corey for the very nice compliment and feel free to send me a PM when you are ready for some colorful sticks.

Thank you, JBarners! Not sure of the exact power requirements just yet but I have planned ahead so if I need to expand down the road, it should not be a problem. My wife handles the electric bill and if you ask her about the specifics, she will tell you our electric bill is high (emphasis added)! To date, I have added eight (8) 20 amp circuits dedicated to the display tank area and another five (5) 20 amp circuits installed for the separate grow-out system, with room to expand, if needed.

The final piece of the build will consist of adding a whole house generator as well.

Thank you very much for the nice compliment! It will be exciting watching my sticks grow out over time.

Oh yes, you need to bring out your sun glasses for that gem....It literally glows! The Glowstick is one of my favorites too! It is even more stunning to see in person.

I'm based in the UK and just set up a Red Sea 650 litre but yours is absolutely huge and way beyond my skill levels with all that kit you have. The tank looks stunning really stunning.

I wouldnt even now we're to start with that lot!

Looking forward to watching your thread.
