    Couldn't get myself to spend so much but sams is very charming and the wife said we can't afford not to take it so I forced myself to pack it into the car under duress obviously under protest''lol

    led

    Hard to qualify the worth of it as the corals looked fine close to top of water line with standard lighting now they deeper and looking the same maybe even better but I've experienced once corals settle in and a person stoops fiddlingntyhe corals usually thrive provided the fundamental chemistry remains in spec obviously!-------just love the water changes with these tanks what I can say is I love the arm I can get to corals that fall in the shadows of what is above them and it makes a difference in the point source type lighting

    very very nice tank bru, smart, and your sps look really good, also looked at this light at Sams, but refused to fork out the cash,lol. flippin nice light though.

    maybe get a plug in digital timer, about R150 at builders warehouse, so you dont have to switch the light on and off every single day.
    actually, i have a spare manual plug in timer,you can have it if you want, they are cheaper, cost like R60 or so, maybe bring me a little frag and you have the timer, dont worry about frag if you dont have also, timer is yours.
