    Daylights had already gone out...here's actinics only. I will take a shot tomorrow night before the lights go out.

    Yes...thanks for the gasket. It's still not dialed in yet though...had a pH drop after running it at 50ml/minute effluent with 30 BPM CO2 as recommended as the start rate in the instructions, so, I've dropped back a little. I don't have a controller yet, because I'm waiting on some information about a solenoid (I have a regulator without one and will have to add one for control).

    3-4 months ago, maybe...I have had them in a 10G tank for a while, as I was setting up the 120.

    54W T5 -- 8 bulbs. 2 UVL Super Actinics, 1 D&D AquaBlue (11000K), 1 GE Daylight (6500K), 4 D&D BluePlus (actinic 03 and blue spectrum -- two spectral peaks). It gives the tank close to, I'd say, a 14K look.

    Well I certainly love the coloration. How close it the picture of the cap from me to the actual color in your tank? It looks deep red in the photo, but I know it's orange. I like it though!!

    Here's a non-macro shot of it. I agree it looked a little more red in the macro than it does in person, and in this shot. It's more of a red-orange under my lights.

    Is that the frag I gave you of the Aquatic piece? It looks good, you should come see the mother colony! Tank is looking good, love those zoos you have.

    Sean,

    Yes, that's the frag. It was looking really deep green until I moved it to the top of the tank, and then it turned yellowish green, so I moved it back down to the sandbed again. Hopefully, it'll get its color back. Here's another zoanthid pic -- makes me think of a sunflower.
