    I HIGHLY recommend this Oceanic 37 gallon cube aquarium.

    It would make a great reef tank and I saw the setup at petsmart for $149 for the tank and $89 for the cool cabinet with stereo-cabinet glass door. Got me thinking! ;D

    Well I was one step ahead of you :p. Thought it would be a great reef tank, with maybe 1 400W MH pendant. But alas up in Canada the tank and stand runs at $650.00 so I thought I really don't need another tank.
    I'll wait until I move and Get a 200G

    Ah, the Canada screw again. At least you have good health insurance! ;D

    400w is pretty extreme, I think my 150w halide would be fine on it for most things.

    Yeah an AWESOME clam tank!
    Sorry for being harsh, you could use a 400w I guess. But the heat and algae would be too much for me to keep up on.

    No worries Matt, 400 is extreme I was just throwing it out. After reading the dimentions 400W would be good if it was a pot light in the ceiling above the tank

    How do you like my new Avi. I shot that little guy at the Vancouver Aquarium

    Yeah I notice your avatar yesterday - very cool! 8)
    What the hell is it?

    We should do a poll on how many people used old aquarium halides for 'plants.' ;D
