I will go ahead and return the fugeray and probably stick with the stock light fixture. I may, however, change the 50/50 bulb out with this 6700k bulb if it fits:

I bought it for a low-light cory tank, and I like it. The 21" hidden LED that comes with it seems adequate for viewing, and maybe my low-light anubias and ferns. Just in case I have a desk lamp that...

Also, mbuna cichlids are herbavores. You didn't mention whether your fish were Tangs or Malawi, but it's something to keep in mind.

Well, I ended up moving momma and the RCS to an Aqueon mini-bow. I think the filter on the 16g was sucking up young despite the sponge (it didn't fit as well as I liked)

It appears that momma has...

Odd cherry shrimp behavior

My 3 female cherry shrimp have pretty much camped out on my stealth heater. The thermometer shows 74-76 degrees, so I don't think the water is terribly cold. However, I have noticed about a half...

I say "he" but I have no idea. I bought them as a pair, but for all I know I have 2M or 2F. I have seen articles on sexing them, but I would need a magnifying glass.
