    Nice looking tank! I like your scaping

    Is that a red scooter Blenny you have? Do you have enough life in the tank to support it long term?

    im not sure if its red scooter but it changes colour when its on different surfaces in my tank! my tank is +- 9 months old now. my lfs said there should be enough in my tank for him to live happily.... he is happy swims around and very active and eats red blood worms twice to three times a week.

    Looks Good man.
    Some colorful zoas would be really cool in there.:)
    Will be nice when those polyps in the centre spread out a bit.

    Think snails are the best CUC, specially a mix of them. Some hermits can be quite mean so just check that they don't nationalise the snails houses.

    hi guys could you tell me does each globe unit have its own ballast in the hood? which means if i add another light would i have to add a another ballast or could i put in a bigger one(ballast) for all 3 globes? do you get stronger globes than the PL-24W for the boyu tl550

    Im not sure about adding another ballast but I opened mine to put in some leds, and there are two seperate ballasts one for each tube. I suppose if you found a ballast that supports two tubes and moved the globes over slightly you it could work. or maybe even add a third small ballast there is quite a bit of space in there.
