So I'm in Maine right now as straight bored out of my mind. There is nothing to do here at all. So I will be posting alot.

So I just purchased a Nove extreme 24" 10x28 T5 unit. I plan on putting it on my Petco 30gln tank . Is that a overkill?
I will be using the tank as a Frag tank plumbed of the 180. I really have just a ton of LPS so I figured it should work. I got the lights as followed

5x 10k
5x 460mn actinics

I'm thinking to start I will use two of each and see what happens.

Where'd you get a 10 Bulb 28 watt setup for a 24". I don't see that on there site? I bet that would definently work for you!

I'm thinking it's a way overkill. But so what. It's a seller I met awile back on e-bay. The only thing is that I have to buy seperate reflectors to get a fair pair reading.

I'll post pics in the next month or so when I get back into town

Huhhhhh

Hey Gomojoe it's nice to see another Pusifer fan out there. Their new song The Mission is one bad *** song.

If it dosn't have individual reflectors then you may want to consider putting in UVL lamps with built in reflectors. They arn't as good as actual reflectors but still better than a single reflector and way cheaper than paying $25 per reflector. Seascapes can order them in for almost the same price as ordering off the net, I had them get me two for the nano last week. Anyway you can get almost all their lamps with internal reflectors in 22" size.

Here is a MD link to the T5 HO with reflecors.

Great idea! Plus, I would run all 10 and see what happens. I think you might get great results.

That is a good idea maybe the way to go. I won't see the lamps for atleast a couple weeks and will have to get some pics for you guys

No band herself that I know of. She is just friends with Maynard James Keenan who put her on one of his songs! Maybe she should start her own band though, her voice sounds good on that song!
