    Yeah a little pricey but they have 50 000 hours and moonlighting so no replacement bulbs.....at the end of their life they have more than paid for themselves.

    Also my tank is 850 deep so I need the powerful light to get to the bottom or my coral will suffer......not to mention the cool shimmer effect :)

    Thanks I am pretty happy with where my tank is at the moment.......would take a photo of my sump but it is a little embarrassing at the moment.

    that looks like a nice start to a tank :)

    i was curious as to how old the tank is though as its looks younge judging by the live rock and sand, which concerns me seeing as there is a sleeper goby which needs a mature sand bed to thrive.

    Thanks.....it is young, a couple of months old. He eats the frozen food that I put in the tank and doesnt blow it out his gills. I am keeping an eye on him though.

    Edit: It didn't look that good before I got him though.
