Marc suggest that I elaborate on the Controller I'm getting....

I ordered the Profilux EX pro kit. You can see it at

http://www.aqua-digital.com/index.ph...mart&Itemid=30

I hope its not a problem since they are a sponsor....

I also got the Expansion socket, WLan and the StimL LED flash stick. I love these controllers because they have so many options and the lightning effects are very cool.
Eventually if they get 39w Dimmable t5's I will switch to those.

haha, funny gabe3d. have ever thought of taking up a proffesion in comedy? nah im jusy playin'...
well aaron, lets put it like this. if you had ever seen mr last tank, you would know exactly what he was talking about. were talkin', the cheapest everything! from the 10g tank, to the in-tank counter current air stone driven skimmer, to the totally awsome "power sweep" power head!
i tell ya what, coming into this hobby, i definatly wasnt prepared! but in the 3 years i had that tank running, i not only grew both of my euphyllias large enough to frag and sell back the the lfs, but i also got my monti cap. to grow... slightly....
if i can dig up an old pic of that disaster ill send it to you. (if your interested?) just tell me where to send it. i dont want to ruin your thread with a pic of that mess

Too bad your not around anymore, would have loved to check out your system. How long ago did you move?

Since the MH are out what is making everything pop?

The URI vho's make everything pop. I hope the new T5's I am getting will have the same effect.

I moved about 3 years ago

If you do find a bulb equivalent to the VHO URI Actinic 03, let me know. I used to have VHO as well on my old setup and I now that I have T5 I'm having a hard time finding a bulb that has that purple tinge that makes some corals pop. There is the blue plus but it makes corals pop a little differently and of course the supposed actinic but it doesn't make anything pop really IME.

ah roseville. ive done alot of work in roseville. my aunt actually just bought a house in placer co. i lived in sac for a brief stint. right there on howe ave just off of us 50. the last place i lived before i moved to tx was vacaville. it never actually felt like home though. i spent the better part of 2o years in marin.
how you likin' texas then aaron?
yeah ill dig up some old pics of "that disaster" and send em to you. you'll get a kick out of it. it was such an eyesore sitting in my living room!
i cant understand how you guys can remember so much. by so much, i mean how you like a particular light, and are actualy able to remember how it looks.... i cant even remember yesterday! i would probably forget my own name if my wife wasnt always saying it! you can remember seeing a controller at macna? i remember almost nothing i saw at macna. i remember meeting marc, and falling asleep during sombodies presentation. im pretty sure i want to see him, but i was soo tired!
