    Brink's new 215g

    Finally got the lights up and bulbs in... got a used Aquatic Life T5/LED hybrid fixture, and may I say that this fixture... was a PAIN IN THE A$$$ to hang up. You definitely need at least 2 people and it took hours to get it leveled right LOL. The 6 fish are hiding, think I blinded them when I...

    Still have some rock to add and more playing around with the scape, but everything is hooked up and running as of last night as well as started the bacteria.

    Brink's new 215g

    Finally got stand and tank in the house. It's not pushed back to its final resting place yet, and we still need a couple of bulk heads and hose clamps, but everything else is set up. I plan on using the right third of the open stand space for ATO and controller station. No, it's not fancy, but...

    Tank and stand were delivered to my LFS yesterday, WOOHOO!!! Stopped by today to check them out and they are BEAUTIFUL! Can't wait to get it set up. While there, we grabbed a couple fish to keep in quarantine while they await their new home , I love these clowns so much.

    Brink's new 215g

    A couple clowns, a Hippo, foxface, couple wrasse, couple basslet and maybe some anthia and firefish, a flame angel, yellow tang, maybe a Picasso trigger (even though our last one ate all our cleanup crew) they're just so pretty, and this time we'd like to try a naso tang. List is still a work in...

    Thanks, I am super excited to get anther tank going, I have missed it so much! This def won't be a fancy "build", since we really don't know how to do all that, we just keep it simple LOL.

    Ok, so I may be starting this a bit early, but I wanted to at least start the thread before I forget to do it later. We've been out of the hobby for 4 years while living overseas, and while that doesn't sound like a long time, it's long enough to feel like you've forgotten everything you need to...

    Aquatic Life T5 hybrid question

    I think I'd rather just have 1 fixture, fewer things to look after lol. It's a good suggestion though. I'm thinking that the gap won't be that noticeable especially once the led's are added in

    Aquatic Life T5 hybrid question

    I was honestly thinking about the Kessil's also. It would have to be something we add a little bit later, maybe few months down the road because of $, but they seem to have very good reviews/results and decent price from what I've researched so far.

    Aquatic Life T5 hybrid question

    We are trying to figure out lighting for the new tank (hopefully coming soon :P), and it's a bit overwhelming with brands, prices, stats, etc.. The lights we had on our previous 210g tank a few years ago were 2 cheap chinese led's off of ebay, and honestly did a good job of growing the corals...
