Thanks for all the feedback on the UVs. I too run a Turbo Twist.
How about a little input on light cylces. How long are the lights on? Are you running moonlights? Any feed back would be appreciated .

I'm running PCs:

ON - 5:00am - 1x65w Ultra Actinic
ON - 6:30am - 1x65w 10000k Daylight
ON - 7:00am - 1x55w Actinic & Daylight Combo

OFF - 5:00pm - 1x55w Actinic & Daylight Combo
OFF - 6:30pm - 1x65w 10000k Daylight
OFF - 7:30pm - 1x65w Ultra Actinic

Additionally between 9:00am - 12:OOpm, I get strong reflected sunlight into the tank. Natural MH!

I would like to tag along on this one, as this was about to be my next question to the group!

We're about to upgrade to MH, and I need to figure out a moonlight solution as well. I'd love to hear other light cycles...
