  5. I went ahead and ordered the Reef Brite 175 watt Metal Halide/LED Hybrid. Also got the dimmer controls for the leds so I can have sunrise/sunset ramp up and down times on the tank.

  6. I have used Dr Tim’s a few times with good results. I’d imagine that most of them are pretty equivalent but you might do some reading on the “bigger ones. I flunked out of med school, and that makes me a doctor in New Jersey, so take my opinion as such.

  10. Amanda. I had amphidinium dinos before my switch to LED. It never got too out of control even when the tank was lit with only the LED. I did manage to get rid of it now. Not sure which nail it the coffin it was. Only thing I was strict about was bi-weekly water changes with sand bed siphon, and weekly microbactor 7 dosing (now bi-weekly)

  14. Burn out can happen. Sometimes breaks are warranted. I’ve had saltwater for 43 yrs. (Thats not a typo!). Literally, The inception of the hobby. Experienced burnout from time to time myself. Sometimes life becomes more complicated limiting the time with a system. The once enjoyment becomes something else to do, and then it turns into a job taking the fun out of it. Happened to me. I can’t see myself without a tank, but i have reinvented what i keep to ignite the spark. Have had macro algae tanks with mangroves and different livestock. A Caribbean biotope. I found reinventing and simplifying a system can help, however, breaks can be good to refocus until the next system.

  15. Hey all, As a follow-up to the meeting, here are the promised links to Dr. Randy Holmes-Farley's articles: His article listing on reefkeeping: http://reefkeeping.com/issues/author/rhf.php Dinos: http://reefkeeping.com/issues/2006-11/rhf/index.php Iodine: http://reefkeeping.com/issues/2007-04/rhf/index.php#17 Silica: http://reefkeeping.com/issues/2007-04/rhf/index.php#14 The last two links are just a portion of one article. I think the entire article is worth reading (it is about most of the things we "dose" in our tanks). Brian
