Quote: Will I ever get it right?????
About Yourself: I started with a 10 gal freshwater tank over 13yrs ago. I finally made my way up to a 125 gal. I never had the nerve to start a saltwater aquarium until a friend of mine started one. I started mine a few months later kept the 125 freshwater and made a 75g. salt tank. About 9 months later I took down my freshwater and made my 125 into a saltwater tank. I love my fish and stive to do better and learn as much as I can.


Really nice coral arrangement. Great looking tank... fish avatar
Very nice! fish avatar
Well I have aquaticlife T5 ho lights. on the 72" 420/460...4x39w. 10,000k...4x39w. 6 lunar led. I just took out my canister filter. I added a sump. I love it, have to get use to the noise but worth it! I have had my 125g salt tank for just over a year. I have recently noticed some red slime algae coming on. I did not know what was causing the problem...come to find out, it has to do with the airflow. My canister was was stopped up again. So Im hoping with all the flow going on now I will redude this problem. Do you have a sump? fish avatar
What lighting are you using as I have a similar set up and am in the middle of swapping my power compacts for t-5's i just bought. Interested in your experience. how many and what wattage do you have? fish avatar
