Congrats on the win!Well sometimes a blind squirrel finds a nut!!! I’ve been having miserable luck with sps easy ones and have been giving them a slow death under my t5s no matter how high and how strong the flow. Hell can’t even grow a birdsnest, could afford to ypgrade to bigger t4 or leds yet but did see a raffle on Coral House and took a chance and wouldn’t you know I won 2 XR15S!!! So I will be implementing a AL hybrid on my tank this weekend!!!
Going to start out with the same bulbs in my t5, set the radions on 10% to start and over the next couple months ramp the radions up to a suitable par. I’m ecstatic!
During this change over I will be keeping the same t5 lighting schedule but gradually reducing its run time to the middle of the cycle until I get the readings I want. I know this may make some of my inhabitants angry but I will make as little changes as possible to give them time to adapt.
This is for all the little sps coral skeletons that line my display case. Hopefully will not be adding to the “collection “ any time soon

That’s my “nori rock”. I put half sheet of green and half a sheet of purple and band it down for the tangs. They keep the tank so clean I figure I gotta keep them happy and fat. Plus they can’t shred it and make a mess.ps, what is under the elastic / rubber bands?
