150w over a 75P (around 40g). Not at all noticeable due to the size of the bill already. That's not to say that they don't draw a ton of power, I realize how inefficient they are.

If you still have diatoms, you have to continue with your water changes. On a slightly different note, an entire scape of mine was once ruined by diatoms. I would do 50% WC's daily and it only...
