    I have two fixtures that take Coralife Model #2080 FT65W 21" Dual Daylight fluorescent tubes (really two 0.75" diameter by ~19" tubes side-by-side mounted to one plastic base), one by Coralife (single light) and one by JBJ (two lights). I think these fixtures were old when I got them used maybe...

    I am setting up a new 75. I need some advice concerning my lighting. I have a Coralife with two bulbs that I was using on my 55g and it was good. Can I get away with it for my 75g? I'm wanting to keep the plants simple but I might want some substrate covering at some point. I attached two...

    Welcome to my newest project: A divided Biocube 8. My intention is to have my two male bettas in one tank by dividing the tank with craft mesh and covering the top of the display area so the bettas cannot jump between the two halves. So far I've siliconed in the my divider and have fitted the...

    Hi, everyone! Bad news, I dropped half of my Coralife Aqualight T5 fixture in my tank while doing a water change. I should of put the light on the ground away from the tank but I was being lazy....anyways, so as soon it went in the tank(after cursing a few times)I took it out and I'm not sure if...

    I have a Coralife Aqualight T5NO on my 55 gallon. A couple months back.... when I would go to turn on the lights they would flicker once then turn off. If I tried to turn them on immediately after they would not even flicker, they would just stay off. So, I would wait a while and after a...

    Hi, I am currently using CFL bulbs in my 35G planted hex. I am not happy with the color of the fish but happy with the plant growth. Recently a friend told me about Coralife Colormax bulbs. I am looking at maybe using the two different bulbs the Regular Colormax Mini and the 50/50 Mini. I was...

    Hi all, I have a 29g tall (30x12x18 I believe) planted tank. Recently I found a great deal on a 30in Coralife fixture with 2x65 watt PCF bulbs at 6700k each. I was wondering if this TOO much light for the tank. Should I just run one of the bulbs at a time? The tank also has pressurized CO2 and...

    Hi, I'm new to the forum. Anyway, I was wondering if anyone could give me advice on which lamp pairings work best. For example, a 10,000k w/a 6,700k. I have a 24" Coralife t5ho dual lamp on a 20g high. If you know of any previous posts that discuss the matter I would greatly appreciate it if you...

    Is thread algae (green strings extending up to a few inches, sometimes forming clumps where they get caught around a plant or driftwood) a common occurence in new tanks or am I likely doing something incorrect? The tank is three weeks old and running higher than 30 ppm CO2 (though I am lowering...

    I have been wanting to start a thread on my tank for a while - it is just another 29 but I know when I first started I scoured these threads for ideas and I want to put what I have done out there. It is a work in progress; a work in progress by someone with no budget as I am in internship for...

    So it's come time to start filling the 20 gallon long that has been sitting empty since I transferred its inhabitants into my new 90G community. Because of my hard, alkaline tap water, it would be easy and appealing to do something African, like a shelldweller tank. But I have some equipment...

    I was minding my own business when my POS Coralife fixture made a sound like a dying goose swallowing a firecracker. (Yeah, yeah, it came with the used tank.) Once it's apart, I find the 6700k tube blown apart, the last third of it splintered and smoked black. The bottom of the broken piece...
