    I do a 10 to 5 percent water change every week.If also use a 200 micron filter sock which I think helps a lot.I'm also making use of a uv light.Skimmer is a reef octopus 3000int...filtration bio balls reactor/ozone sometimes if the redox requires me to use ozone.Then Im having orca cubes in a reactor.

    Lights would be 4x t5 54w, 2x actinic and 2x 12000k bulbs

    For calcium and alk levels Im using a calsium reactor.

    Thanks for the info

    Does your hood not get hot inside - running fans?

    I have the same style 5ft tank that I am now converting to marine - just wondering about the heat...

    Am going to go 6 T5 54w...

    If got fans at the back, without the fans it does get very hot inside the hood.Six lights would work well :thumbup:
