Tank looks amazing. How long have you had your frogspawn?

What type of lighting are you running? If t5ho, what is the bulb combo you are using?

Thanks. I have 3 different varities of frogspawn, got them all around the same time (1 1/2 years ago). They grow fast, I frag them every 2-3 months.

For lighting I don't have anything really special, just a cheapo 6x54w T5 setup, however I do use good bulbs.

Here's my bulb combo from front to back:

ATI Blue+
ATI Aquablue Special
UVL Super Actinic
ATI Blue+
KZ Fiji Purple (this is a great bulb, the colors pop like crazy)
ATI Blue+

Hey man I am in love with your tank. Really grate stuff!
If I like your color, what light set up would you recommend for an 8 bulb T5HO? Also it seems like most of your bulbs are Blue or blue'is; I dont see that much blue in your pictures though or the pictures and the actual look of your aquarium is diff ? Also if you dont mind could you take a straight front shot of your tank ? Thank you.

Thanks, actually I only run 4 of the 6 bulbs most of the day. All my pics were taken with 4 bulbs on (2xBlue+, 1xAquablue Special and 1xFiji purple)...When I take pics with all 6 bulbs I get a bluer look which I don't care for too much in pics. None of the pics were edited, just reduced/cropped in size so I can upload them to this site. There is a straight-front pic somewere in the ones I posted.

Correction: sorry, I thought I posted a straight tank shot...I'll post one soon.

As you requested, here's a front view of the tank. With the 4-bulbs I use most of the day, the tank look exactly as the pics. For an 8-bulb T5HO, it all depends on your setup. If it's exposed I would recommend a fixture, if it's in-hood or in-wall I would recommend a retro kit. Some of the top rated fixtures are the Constellations and ATI's which is what I was planning to get. But I purchased a cheapo from Catellina aquarium for $250 (they were using WorkHorse5 electronic balasts at the time) in the beginning and swapped out the cheap bulbs, the plan was the upgrade the fixture later but since I got good results I decided to save myself the ~$600-$800. If I was going all SPS I would get one of the fixtures I mentioned above.
