    Hi there i have a RSM S650 175g mixed reef and included with it are 4 AI HYDRA 26. Was just wondering what are your settings to maximize the lighting on your mixed reef.

    I have a toadstool leather, bubble coral, bubble tip anemone, gorgonia, pompom xenia, chalice, duncan corals.

    Im just starting with corals and was just wondering what’s the best setting for them. Thanks

    Currently using David Saxby’s setting which is on from 9am to 12mn.

    Okay parts are ordered to plumb the pump. Now I am looking a thing two things.

    1) lighting I am looking at the A360x think of using 4 of them. Any reviews or input on these lights. Also I don't want the goose neck mounts I want something sleeker.

    2) the skimmer I am looking at the Reef Octopus Regal 200INT any input on this?

    Ok so i am done with the cycling process and the tank is still empty but just liverock and sand. Is it normal for the skimmer not to make bubbles? It just fills the canister with clear water. The toggle is on the operating mode and all connections are placed.

    It is working but no bubbles like how i am used to with other skimmers.

    Thanks for the help.

    Does anyone know how the auto top of works?

    Been trying to figure the floater valve or the toggle on top but it seems that it makes my reservoir go so fast.
