Where to start! oh yes!
Ok, so I went out and got a sump/skimmer/pump for sump and skimmer/and 3 light settings...for 125$....all used, but in excellent condition.
So now I'm "stuck". The lights are all 96 Watt Coral Life 50/50'sa, and measure out to be 15 inches (I dont know if you include prongs.) I'm going to make my own canopy (I have fans) and hang it from the ceiling over the tank ... with caution.
What I want to know is... what would fit in these as far as replacements go, I would say i have roughly 6 months left of good life on these bulbs. Also would 3 of these sets at 96 watts each be enough to keep life rock...living, and maybe enough for corals/other inverts?
WHILE TYPING THIS I HAVE MADE DISCOVERIES! http://www.hellolights.com/96watquad100.html
That is what I have x2! But those measure out to be about an inch longer.. odd.
Anyways - any help would be awesome.
