Outdated Semi FTS... Yes, I do run my tank more on the blue side.. I personally enjoy the blue a ton more then the white look.... So please do not ask me for "daylight" pictures!

Hm nice and simple, I like it!
Thanks :splitspin
Sure is! A lot of people like the white look but its not for me! Tank is a lot more enjoyable with the blue and I still get ridiculous growth, mind you I use to run 2 GE 6500k bulbs (can you say WHITE!!) in that fixture so I am well aware of the "daylight" scenerio!!

I have 10k reeflux's and super actinic VHO's running on my reef and I cant stand the crazy white anymore! I really got into LPS over the past few weeks, so when I get some money I think I am going to set up a simple tank probably a 40b in my room with a canopy with a retrofit of 4 ATI blue + bulbs and individual reflectors and something like a HOB octopus skimmer and maybe go with black sand to really show off the colors of the LPS.

Sounds good!!! I would just becareful with the black sand, I believe I have heard it washes out after awhile, please correct me if I am wrong....

With an LPS tank the blue side is your best bet to get the most extreme colors out of your LPS no doubt!!!!!

Night time for me! Will update more tomorrow!!! gnite reefers!!
