Don't think I've said hello here yet.. I frequent the Denver forum usually but been more active here lately. I'm Renee and of course, I'm addicted to the reefing hobby. I've met lots of awesome people through this forum and the Denver forum. Always down for trades with coral and such. I have a 75g, 90g and 80g tanks. Just finished setting up a 120g for my mom. Going to be moving soon.. so until that's over I may not be around too much. Anyway, thought I would say hello here, finally. And forgive me if I try to "pimp" Valley Pets.. they are like family to us and always take care of anyone I send their way. :)

All the new additions seem to be liking their new homes out of the bags.. took a few pictures this morning. @Bush.. that gorgonian is beautiful.. once it settles, we'll get you a clipping. :) @coach.. Yup! I got a pink milli frag set aside for you. @Stacy.. it seems we're losing a lot of good fish stores. I was really sad to see Neptune's go out, too. =( Will post some pictures here in just a min. Uploading them now!

Here are my 3 tanks from a distance. I have metal halides over one, T5s over another, and LEDs over the last one. It's my own little personal experiment and makes having 3 tanks a little more interesting.

That pink spiny cucumber is sweet. Elegance coral looks great too.

Nice pictures, great tanks. Tell us a little about your observations and preferences between the three lighting types. This has been a topic of interest lately.

Awesome! I love those pink tail triggers! One day I'll have to get one...

My pinktail and sailfin are my favorites. So much personality. As for the lighting.. I'll have to type up more than a few sentences.. there's so much to say about it, since they all seem to have their pros and cons. When I've got more time and feeling less tired and lazy, I'll do something about my experiences with all 3. :) Thank you all for the compliments.. I was a freshwater person for so long.. then I dabbled in the saltwater and I'd never turn back. Nice to be around people who seem to share the same passion. :)

If they are indeed still there and not the awesome fish in my tank, I'd say you have amazing taste in fish. ;) Haha.
