Your tank is amazing, could you tell me what your magnesium and alkalinity levels are at in your tank.

Mag is between 1300 and 1400. I don't keep a close eye on it.

Alk is 8.5

I'm in the process of switching my lights from T5's to LED's. I bought the Vertex Lumina 260 which I have turned the white lights down to 30%. I've also added a reefbrite blue XHO LED stripe. A friend of mine is running this system on a mixed tank, 50% are acans and they just pop, the color is terrific. I will post pic's soon. Any thoughts about this set up?

These are awesome acans, I always have bad luck with them after 4-5 months. Just up and disappear one day.

What techniques are people using to frag acans. I've seen videos of snippets, dremels and bandsaws. Just have snippers, but have not mustered up the courage to frag one yet.

The Best Way is with a Frag Saw.

It is alot easier, faster, and less stressful on coral.

You can cut around the polyps of coral very easily so they are less likely to die.

Darrell, i have probably asked before but what T5 tubes are you running at present as i know you changed the combo a while back? I am about to purchase a unit and not sure on tube choice. My current Eco-Lamps KRV5 is run on uv and blues only so id like to emulate that on the T5 setup. Not sure about height, it would come with legs as i cannot hang a unit from the wall or ceiling. I have an 8x24w ati power module but cannot hang it. Worried a little about par from 6 t5 tubes vs my led which is around 208W but i only run that at 40% blues... How high is yours on that smaller tank?

And by the way, your pieces are looking awesome as always!

Cheers,

I picked up a 4 bulb LED powermodule. Can anyone suggest what bulbs I should get for the T5 to enhance color? I only got the 4 bulb because I have a 30L.

thanks all.
