    If you do, try and get the HQI model, or if you're good at DIY, retrofit some LEDs in there. It'll help a lot :p

    Thank you sir! :)

    Yeah, that's why I retrofit some LEDs in there. Thinking about getting one of these LEDs and removing the hood on it.

    Update: (This is all stuff I just noticed, but I've had most of this stuff for a while)

    My Duncan has three new heads starting on it!

    Also, my Hammers/Torches/Frogspawns are all starting to split heads! Anywhere from 2-5 heads on each! :)

    My Pink Zoos have a few small new polyps!

    Kenya Trees are firmly attached to the LR rubble now (Still in a plastic cup in the tank though lol)

    And, my Snowflakes are hosting the crap out of my GBTA :) (The GBTA is starting to get it's bubbles back :^::bounce::^:)

    Sweet, this weekend I think I'm going to either order the light in the link, or a bunch of corals from liveaquaria.com. Haven't decided which yet! :dunno::dunno:

    Picked up some Fire and Ice Zoas the other day. While I was there, I noticed a small red mushroom floating around the rock, so I asked the guy how much for it. He turned, looked both ways, then scooped it in the bag with the Zoas. He then looked at me and said, "How much for what". Some people are just awesome. :)
