    You know you can't grow coral under those things, right? The spectrum isn't controllable enough and they give off too much heat. ;):p

    I think you just need to keep posting more and more different pics of the entire room, will never get bored no matter how many times and different ways I see this room.

    I’m still running 400w Halides over my display along with T5 and some XHO led strips. My growth is off the charts and my colors are pretty great too.

    Now I know you are fibbing. Next, you will probably claim to have measurable phosphates and nitrates, too! :eek::D

    Adam,

    After reading this entire thread it's become clear you have no idea what you're doing and don't care at all about the health of your corals. That last picture with the used light you picked up from some random garage sale 10 years ago proves it.

    I'd expect someone in your line of work to know old technology is failed technology. :rolleyes:

    Jumping off the led band wagon myself. While I can't put a Iwasaki in this;) I'm still super excited I found this reflector ink my basement!

    Lumenarc Mini Stealth, complete with a Reeflux 12k hqi:)

    Not sure how long a bulb is good for while sitting in a box to be honest. I did put a note in the box with this bulb saying it was used less than 3 months. What are the chances this bulb is still usable, lol. Really looking forward to putting this back above my reef! Really miss halides to be honest!

    Nice! The DE 12k is/was a solid bulb for sure. Better than the SE. The par the moguls is/was dismal but the color was really nice. jeez i feel like I'm back on RC circa 2006 or so lol

    Come on rbtm - don't tell me you don't miss those days talking about PAR and color spectrum of different halide bulbs when fitted in lemenmax vs lumenarc vs lumenbright reflectors and age old fights between m80 and electronic ballasts :p

    You can't deny those blues coming out of a reeflux 10K SE bulb ! Makes you feel like its jumping of the water

    Okay newbie to Reefs and Reef2Reef, and since I can't post on the Vendor forum yet, and I would love to see an update from Adam, I thought I'd just post here. My first EVER purchase was Adam was a great success and I'm officially hooked!! Adam was quick to answer my noob questions and far exceeded my expectations with regards to my frags. Unfortunately, I now understand what 1" frag means lol. Frags arrived in PERFECT condition and happily sitting in the large frag tank at my LFS, Iconic in NJ. Just some poor quality cell phone pics of my new kids. From top left to right: Mr Tyree Pacman, Lemon Peel, Purple Pillie and from Bottom left to right: Skinny Love and Amanaman. Great corals and great service, and couldn't ask for a nicer guy to deal with!! Thanks Adam!!

    I don't even have a tank yet, and I'm already thinking I need a frag tank. How is anyone happy with just a few Acros? I'm just lucky that my LFS is willing to help grow out my frags while my custom tank is getting built. Can't wait!! Just got these frags on Wednesday and I'll already looking into my next order with Adam.
