i have whites at 55% and blue @ 75% royal blue at 78%. so i guess on my previous light setup i had my MH high enough and the fans pointed to a point where water evap was not altered by them. currently with the LEDs im still topping off at the same rate. this is important because i use a kalk reactor to control my level especially PH, as it runs low on my system. currently alk is at 8.9 and cal at 438 with hanna checkers.
colors are still looking great, so far im happy with my choice.....

so i decided to plunge into the world of LED. i was a long time anti-LED guy as i came from the old school of MH and T5.
i will be running a 4 foot vertex sr260, as of now im running as is with just white, blue, royal blue leds. i plan on buying the multi color add on pucks later. at the moment i have it 50% white and 60%blue and 65% royal blue. i am running cloud simulator and lightning also on random.
the light is a BEAST very powerful and the build quality is the best ive seen and

So my girlfriend Emily loves boxfish. we have had a couple tries at it with longest lasting six months. i really do not like the fish because how hard they are to get eating. Well i broke down after seeing this guy come in where i work on ocasion. he was eating fine and had been in a system with copper for a week, so pulled the trigger. he was very timid the first three days but going about picking at the rocks and staying out of the other fish way. then he finally starting eating, he now has a
