    Marvin,

    where did you find a DE version of the 20K Radium bulb? I was under the misguided assumption that they only made the single end variety.

    Thanks in advance,

    Aaron

    Thank you... :)

    Aaron... Radium makes 150w DE bulbs... you should be able to find 'em in most bigger e-tailers... good luck... :)

    I forgot to post these in here... pics when the Picasso's/Snowcasso's when they arrive... should be cool to track the growth on these guys... I hope I can get 'em to develop some nice black to contrast with the white... I missed one coz he's camera shy... LoLz... :)

    Shame on you for forgetting the focal point of the tank. Those guys are awesome.

    Marvin, any advice on getting the Z's and P's to not only color up but keep their colors? I am finding out that most of mine have lost their color and become more brown no matter where in the tank i put them. You have some crazy looking ones in those pics and i figured you might have a secret or two!!

    what I would recommend is pickin' up z's and p's that are proven to keep their colors in captivity... most of the wild caught ones will change overtime in captive setting... actually, even some of the ones that have been kept in captivity can change depending on tank conditions... good luck with your z's and p's... I hope they color back up for you... :)
