    My ballast just died and I think I'd rather upgrade instead of buying replacement parts. ANy suggestions? Anyone got any used equipment? I was looking at the sundial t5s and are leaning towards this fixture more then anything else I have seen.

    my tank now has a ratio of 10.4 watts per gallon. Im going to start off all of my corals on the bottom and keep the shrooms and zoas semi covered by rocks in my tank then slowly work up the corals. As long as I keep my zoas and shrooms in a semi shaded area on the bottom could I be able to maintain both sps and softies? Well im going to try...

    Yep, you can keep both in a mixed reef tank. Just keep the low-light corals on the bottom and along the sides.
