On my 75g, I tried using T5 light system but was not happy with the color of light or the lack of control (specifically dimming). Will try again in the future.

Disasters & Regrets

Huge infestation of Xenia and GSP - treated tank with fenbendasole in Nov. 15, 2015. Treatment worked - all Xenia and GSP gone. Lost 2 big birdnest coral heads: green and green/purple. Only a few frags survived from each. No other corals impacted.

New Year's day, 2015 - Woke up to a cycled tank. Lost 70% of all the corals and fish over the next two weeks. Happy New Year.
