LEDs and reef tanks

saw that quite a few of you were into saltwater tanks and wanted to share some pics from when I was running a 55gal reef tank w/ two 120W LED fixtures and a 36" t5

Ive been thinking real hard about starting up a nano tank again... but ill stick to one wallet-crippling hobby at a time

yeah, the B&W maxi was definitely a prized addition. I used to manage the invertebrate husbandry dept for a major importer that had its base in los angeles, so I had access to some SERIOUSLY cherry pieces. The Australian fungia alone... God, I really didnt know how good I had it, but they paid me like sh*t, so I left :rolleyes:

Ill upload some more pics tomorrow, and some vids of the old dwarf lionfish I had in a small 30gal

PS
that mantis shrimp was a jerk :p
