Nice tank Vinny

how come he runs Vortechs without screens:))) Also, i see you stated 12 t5s, is he running 2 units>? What size tank?.. reason i am asking cause my tank is 34 " deep and i think my ATI hybrid doesn't cover it..

Hi Mike,

Good eye! He says he gets even wider flow without the covers.

He's running the 12 bulb ATI Powermodule with led lights fitted in there and from the picture it looks like it's working well for him. :)

The tank is 170gal and looks to be almost 3ft deep.

Hi Vinny
Wow, interesting... Indeed wider flow but he can kill all his fish:)))

As far as ATI.. there is no units that fitted in 12 tubes... well, i never heard of it:) I remember FM use to make 10 bulbs units:)

Does that torch sting other SPS's & vice-versa? I always wondered about packed systems like this, how is it that more corals are not stinging each other & RTN'ing. I had a 75g & corals would sting each other all the time.
