    Great coral! Just curious, what’s your lighting? I see some LEDs in the reflection. Any supplemental lighting or LED only?

    Good ol 8 bulb ati sunpower. They do all the heavy lifting.

    I do have 3 ai primes running too. They don’t grow much but make the tank look pretty in mornings and evenings when I’m home

    I had initially hooked up 3 Hydra 26's which deliver some good par, but they were too heavy and tipping the while 80/20 rig over, and even my light cover wouldnt close all the way. Had to switch the primes. They are good but lack in par.

    if i were to do it again, i'd go with 6 bulb ATI and leave enough room for the Hydra 26's
