    What are those again... 27" tall? If so, I still think you'd be fine with the 250w.
    I can grow sps on the sand bed. Actually, some like my ORA bird of paradise HAVE to go down on the sand bed to do well.
    You can also play with reflectors (if doing a retro, not a fixture)... some spread the light more and some focus the light more.

    In this picture you have what I believe are some filter feeders, the purple ones with the coiled like structure and tube that sticks up... I have them in my tank and they irritate me growing on frag plugs

    It looks good (as always)... Remember when you had just a little 46g bow front! I was surprised to see you went back to MH. The biggest shock... What is this Olympus Camera you speak of.... NIKON-4-ever!

    I am trying to get inspired! I really want to get my tank set up its currently in a garbage can (w/ heated SW) I moved a year ago and our new house has some 'power issues' I am hoping to have an electrician in the next few months. My wife (that happened) set up a planted FW tank but its not the same, lol and really not fun to take photos of. Leica, that seems better :)

    I am glad to see you are still up and running, a link to your 130g was just posted in a FB group I still look at. I had to hunt this page down a little.

    Woot! Congrats!
    There's some sweet tanks here, plenty of inspiration to get you going. ;)
    This tank has come down (we moved again too) but I'm already planning the next one.

    Wish I could have moved that fish room of yours to my house lol! That is my inspiration for the room I'm adding in to the house my wife and I are building.

    Man! I spent hours this weekend reading through this thread, making notes, comparing with my plan, and find out at the END that you have to rip it all apart? This is like one of those movies that you get to the end of and go what the heck? THAT'S how it ENDS? WTFFFFF! But man, what a tank, what a project, what a thread. I have learned so much just from this one thread, so thanks d2mini!. Hope you were able to sell and find a new house and start a new fishroom that I can be jealous over!
