    You're totally right tangster...but it makes me sad when you tell someone useful info and they get mad and disregard it.

    I have a maxima under the same lighting, and it's doing perfectly ok...i wouldn't worry.

    I just got my new maxima yesterday, and I have it under my 70W HQI 14000K and 48W T5 actincs. The guy at zoanuts said it should be good, start him at the bottom of the tank in case it's too much. I picked up some powder turbo strontium too. :)
