Pulled the trig on a pulsing Xenia, and I installed the mj1200, Temp raised slightly. I think the b/w clown might host the torch. He seems to stay near it and one time I saw him brush up against it. I'm hoping he decides to host the torch. I am ordering my tunze skimmer tomorrow and my media baskets

I'm out of town but my wife said I have a small amount of brownish algae. Added some snails to my CUC. About 10 margarita snails, and 5 hermits. I found a used 150watt metal halide with t5 actinic lights and led moon lights at a lfs for 150. Is that a better deal than the 20led heat sink?

For lighting I say yes, but for efficiency, no. the LEDs kill that set up all the way around. I have Halides myself, but would love LEDs, they just haven't gotten that good yet for my size of tank. But, they will definately keep your tank corals happy.

So should I get the led setup? This is one of those things I just want it already lol. The led retro kit is on back order and this is in town. I'd plan to add better fans though

LED's are jsut more efficient than the Halides, and create less heat. Its really up to you. The Halides will work. If you've got the cash for them, I'd say yea, they would be a better choice.

I have the cash but like I said I don't wanna wait. The my apparently came off a similar nano setup, but a Phoenix brand?? He said it's a few years old but pretty much everything works. It has individual switches for my, actinic, and led moons. I think for now it's a good buy and eventually Ill debate upgrading. I don't plan on having it for years anyway so it's not a Long term buy, ill have my 90g sometime next year.
