Thanks Bill. How are your CRS doing? I am working on these culls at the moment. I have enough to keep them in their own tank. Will see what they throw out.



I've managed to increase the quality of what I've started with a year ago after lots of culling

gorgeous Van. i still cannot believe you are not a "shrimp guy"...LOL

my crs? i can confirm 2 in the tank....lol still rather small, so they must be the littlest ones you gave me. on the upside, it looks like i have 1 m and 1 f this is my last go around with crs. i think i am going to wait and get an ro unit before i try again. but that won't be for quite some time.

Thanks for offering me those fish Rob. Thank god I didn't take them cuz my male and female blue rams were cleaning a spot off on the substrate today. Pretty sure they're getting ready to spawn. What did you wind up doing with them?

That's unfortunate. RO does make it easy. Even a discus only person can do it with RO water. When you are ready to tray again, I may be culling PRL. I'll have to re-arrange the tank to get some pictures of them.

Phew my life has been one terrible thing after another - been so busy, I need to catch up on this forum! Where's the guy I promised some shrimp and snails to? Pm me!

Also, anyone selling a set up? I'm looking to upgrade to a bigger tank, currently have a 29gal.

So I tried out the 2 36" Finnex Ray II LED fixtures for my 150. Honestly, just by how they look to my eyes, they aren't any brighter than a single tgho unit that spanned the 6 feet. However, since I got them to supplement my 3 80 watt T5 HO lights and allow me to get more light spread, I'm satisfied.

When all is said and done, the fact that I don't have to replace the bulbs every 12 months justifies the $260 or so i paid for both lights.

On their own, it would definately be low light on a 6 foot 150 gallon tank.
