    WHAT? You want mt wife to divorce me or something? ;) thats_crazy

    BTW, my LFS suggested i run the lights for only 4 hours for the first couple weeks, he said that it is very probable that I'll get an algae bloom if i don't. What do you think? and BTW yesterday i added a small patch of green star polyps and a feather duster :thumbsup1:

    JPFish,
    She's a Beaut! :thumbsup: Love the rig! I think that is the route I will be taking with my tank as well! If I did it now, I'd be divorced now too ;) I will give it some time and save some $$ And the world will keep spinnin.

    Thanks for the pics and the info!

    Bad news on the Helios! My ballast just crapped out, only one of the switches will work! The other I have to switch on /off really fast for it to work and it will only once in a while :'(

    Now we'll see how good Hello lights customer service is! ???
