    Everywhere. Many times it’s other hobbyists for great deals or connections I’ve made over the years who always know someone selling something rare. There’s no 1 place for these types of things unless you have a fortune to spend.

    Beautiful tank! And you have quite the collection of corals! I was wondering how you added those T5 bulbs? We often get this question and there is no one way to do it. Props on the DIY back of tank mount! We are looking to add an OEM one shortly.

    Thanks!
    Giesseman Razer retro fixture. It has screws on the top of the fixture that slide right into the T-Channel mount. It’s pretty slick because it appears to be just floating there since no hardware is exposed.

    Following, I'm hoping to start a 200g tank and this one is beautiful and gives me lots of ideas!

    Cool! Any way you can do a close up for me? I am curious to see how it attaches. I might order one myself and see how it installs.

    Man thats almost the perfect dimensions of my dream tank. By the way how do you like the 6000 return pump? Do you think its enough?

    Return pump is plenty strong for my needs. I run slow flow through the sump so no need for a monster return pump. I have it at level 2 which is around 700gph I think? Fairly slow for good contact time with chaeto and skimmer. Slow sump flow has worked for me for many years.

    Only reason i'm asking is because i'm setting up a 120 with the 6000 also
