    The lights does a good job but the spread over the tank isn't even (hot spot in the middle). Since it's a sps tank that is an issue as I want acro in the middle and edges (right now everything is in the center)

    I've been considering different options that will give better coverage but it's tricky with such a shallow tank

    Old school. On the 300g run 2x 400w metal halide radium bulbs on luminarcs. Center run 2 reef breeders. Sides 2 VHO superblues. On the 30 drag run an aquatinics 5 bulb t5 and a photon led. On the 75 a simple 4 bulb t5. Mainly softies in that one.

    You could organize tours and charge admission. Are you in CT?

    4 Hydra 26 HD's over DT and Kessil A160WE.. I would really like to go back to Halides (call me old school) or add more supplemental lighting maybe with T-5's but the LED's are holding there own
