    Calvin, when you say gear does that Reflector come with it's own ballast, or is that a seperate purchase ?

    Does it have a "max" rating?

    the trouble with big tanks - everything else you need is also huge(and expensive) i have a phosphate reactor (deltec) cost me £100 (at todays exchange rate R1450) when i look at it, it is a large pipe with a small pipe inside it and two lids, one with a tap connector on it - honestly what the hell are we paying for?

    Most aquarium equipment is just acrylic tubes and some pipes and pumps connected a bit differently. If you're into DIY with acrylic it's great cos if you can make one thing you can probably make most...

    If you can buy just the amout of tube you need it will be OK, looked at it the other day, but they will only sell p/m.
