About a year ago a gentleman in my area passed away and his wife decided to sell off all of her husband's aquarium equipment, but it was an all or nothing thing. She wanted it all gone. I had just contracted to build a house that was to be completed in 4 - 6 months so I decided to buy...

Currently I'm rocking a Maxspect Ethereal on my Nuvo 20, and while it's a pretty good light it does have a few issues that I don't think fit my long term goals for coral growth.
Here's a list of some of the problems I have with the light currently:
- Light spread is pretty limited, sort of...
I have a corner 55 tank. Currently I have a Kessil 360 on it. I want to add T5 to add some better lighting. I friend told me about t5 hybrid fixture you can get, although being a corner tank this setup appears to only be rectangle which would be to big.
So I'm currently building my Red Sea 750xxl and I'm pretty committed to running a Giesemann stellar plug in hybrid, however I'm not sure on how to size the fixture in relation to my tank since my tank is 72" long. I plan on using 4 Radion XR30 G4 Pros, but should I buy two 36" fixtures and put 2...
So I'm about to unbox my 6x39w hybrid ATI powermodule and install it. I've done a quick search online and i saw that some users recommended/used the Aquatic Life Universal Hanger (pictured below) to mount their hybrid T5/LED fixtures.
However, this hanger is rated for 10lbs on each...

Anyon have a 36" 4 bulb t5 over your reef and happen to have a par meter? I have one 8" over a 40b and was wondering w/o the investment what the #'s are. My rocks are pretty low so probably about 14" from the rocks to the light.
I've been trying to find a "combo light" that will allow me to have both T5s AND LEDs on the same light fixture.
I know about this one from BRS, but it has bad reviews because of the power cords coming out of both ends of the light fixture...
Decided to Shift some tension from breeding captive fish to growing frags. Pump a small 24x16x8 frag tank to my display. Would an $80 Hydro Plant 4 bulb t5ho Amazon fixture and 4 ATI bulb work or am I overlooking something obviously?
Besides cooling fans and better reflective...
After doing much digging and not being able to find a configuration for a Hydra 52 HD/ T5 Setup, I figured I would make my own and share it. I currently run 3 Hydra 52 HD's & the Aquatic Life LED/T5 60" Fixture. This lets me hold 4 T5 bulbs along with the Hydra's. I have a 72" tank but the 60"...
