My opinion is the same. I don't think the coralife fixture even compares to the catalina. I am very happy I went to the t5 catalina fixture.:proud:

I can imagine. Spirogyra made me take out all my plants and throw them away. Looks very similar to clado.

Wow. I dosed my tank with 15ml per gallon of H2o2 and it all melted within an hour or two. Although I'm sure what I had was Spirogyra. This will also kill BBA.

Hi 'B',

I'm perfectly happy with the 67k bulbs that I requested them to send with the fixture instead of the ones they normally use. They'll substitute at no additional cost.:)

I would say that this could vary greatly depending on lighting(photo period length), co2, plant mass.


This does sound like a nitrogen deficiency. I assume your dosing phosphates regularly?

I think I agree with this advice. Manzanita always looks best when it appears to be originating from one point. Then just fill in around it.

By the way, the tank is looking good. :)
