I know you worked hard suggested by your modern decor! I'm in high school so funds are minimal. 75 hours a week is crazy!

Any new progress?

I think that pond needs an ADA sticker!

I like the jungley look of the 60p. I don't k now why but a densely planted tank has always appealed more to me. Though don't get me wrong iwugami is beautiful! So is the 120.

Yeah, being on here sucks because everyone is like, oh yeah I guess I will throw in a solar light or sonething. It would take me so long to even buy one. I do manage to get a decent tank going with limited funds though.

ill give you a quik hint, a 150w MH by fishneedit @ less than $120 puts out more par than an ADA 150 MH light, however there is such thing as too much light. While i like the ADA stuff, there are other methods that are just as sucessfull.

remember i Honda Civic goes into the shop less than a Ferreri

I would never even consider buying one of ADA's light to tell you the truth, maybe the Aquasky, but as you said they are over priced, or I you can find better. I am going to try to build an LED fixture that is inspired by the solar series, not sure how close it will be, it will at least be based off the solar series though.

I did not say they are overpriced, what I said is that the Fishneedit fixture puts out more light, which I. This case is not necessarily better. I h
I personally will continue to buy Ada lights along with ATI

Well, I think they are overpriced They are nice, just expensive. I love the look of them, just would never buy something that costs so much! That may change if I get a job....

Hows the 120?
