Starting to look like a reef tank again. ORP is creeping back up into the 400s.

For healthier SPS. Some of the colonies are big enough to shadow themselves.. which is the downfall of LED lighting. Ultimately I値l run a combo of sorts but for now I値l experiment with T5 only for a while.

Are you worry about heat once summer hits? I stuck my 150W halide over the 20L I think it will do ok tell summer hits.

Yep. 4x54w. I only run 2 bulbs at a time on each fixture. One channel runs 9am to 4pm, the other from 4pm to 7pm. Running all 4 bulbs is way too much light.
