    Well I can only say that as a reefer ,who believes that marines can be MUCH MUCH more affordable than what they are,you have my full support in this.I hope you are absolutely successful at it.And WHEN you are I will be there to buy some really reasonably priced corals:thumbup:

    nice post thanks Dallas

    As an aside, have you noticed how many of the threads on the overseas forums go political like WAY fast???

    And I thought SA politics was bad ;)

    mnd123: they are far worse than us, but they have the numbers to fight, unlike the few hundred here :)

    One truly amazing thing about that thread is that all of that is done with T5's.... makes one think...

    I am very happy with T5's personally, but it is nice to see the glorious colours that this chap gets with T5's

    Just to update this thread, was going to post a link to this thread on reef central but I saw it has already been posted. There are some updated pictures on the last page of the thread. If you haven't seen or followed this thread it is a great read.

    Agree , I've read that whole thread....some awesome insight as to what can be achieved by planting a single polyp. I've tried this on some corals as well....just be prepared to wait a long time though.

    The most amazing thing is that everything is done with T5's and not metal halides. I'm really starting to think metal halides are a waste of time for sps. All the zeovit and reef central tanks that have amazing colours and growth are all using T5's. Anyone interested in a 250W MH pendant :whistling:

    thats why im getting a t5 unit! i only have one or two SPS and mostly LPS and softies.the colour you get from t5's is amazing.i have looked at lots of tanks on other forums and Masa,the tanks with t5's look so much better than the Mh tanks.
    just my opinion though:)

    I used to love MH but I'm quickly changing my mind. Think I'm going to go with 10X39W T5's instead of my 250W MH. Should look cool and I change the colours of the globes seperately to change the look of my tank.
