    Hello fellow Reefers. I am looking for some lighting suggestion for a 120gal 48x24x24 mixed reef. I plan on keeping softies and LPS. I might add a few SPS down the road. I currently run 4 T12 VHO super Actinic bulbs but I'm thinking about switching to 4-T5 bulbs. If I go with T5's do I...

    T5 hybrid vs Kessil AP9X

    Hi, I am in the process of buying all the gear for my first tank (neptunian m150 so nearly 5 ft long around 130g) and I can’t decide whether to go t5 hybrid or just get enough decent LEDs.

    Kessil owners - how do you do it?

    Any examples of LEDs in the front lighting row, facing in?

    Like many other setups, my kessils are on top of the tank, right smack in the middle. This means half the light is at an angle towards the front of the tank and the the acros either need to be in the rear half or their color and growth will be facing away from the display glass panel. Kessil...
