Looks nice! I would switch out the purple+ for another actinic or coral+. I run 3 blue+ and a coral+ with a Phoenix 150wMH. When my halide shuts off, the 4 t5s in that configuration look nice to my eye.

I run a purple plus and a coral plus and ditching them for 3 blue plus and one attinic.

 

New combo is 5 blue plus and one attinic. The LEDS will be plenty for whites......

I run the same combo and I like it enough that I chose the same for the frag tank. All personal preference I guess ????

That combo would look nice but it won't work with my ramping led.  I set yy led ramping up at 11:00 and hit max 100% at 12:30.  By 12:30 the 4 bulbs in the center turn on.  Would be too much par (shock) for the corals if i run 3 blue plus in the center.

Done with the initial cycle for a while.  I've been babying these two beauty and trying to get them to eat. Thanks Jeff at Cuttlefish and Corals for these beautiful pair.

I am very jealous. One day I will own a big boy tank. Until then I will just have to live with my tiny tank and tiny fish, I love my fire fish, gobys and my Napoleon Wrasse. I will stick with my little tiny fish for now.

 

Someday though, someday
