  1. There's a ton of confusion and a lot of misinformation on the Hawaii "ban"

    What they have done is pulled permits for small mesh nets, which means the collection of things like Wrasses and such will be difficult to catch. Net's with openings 2" or bigger are still allowed. There are people still collecting in Hawaii and shipping fish, the divers have tried to improvise and have found some new techniques. So as of now Hawaii collection isn't shut down. Now what the future holds is yet to be seen...

  2. I thought you'd like the name lol... Sfilogoi made amazing fixtures and built in Italy! Sadly they don't make their halide fixture anymore and finding a used one is nearly impossible since very few ever made it to the states in the first place. It was the only other fixture on my list.

    I just got to the point of chasing the look of Radium's why not just got back to them and be done. They grow everything and everything looks as it should with great color. It's really a no brainer and the power consumption really isn't that much more than what I'm already using. We'll see what next summer brings as far as tank temps are concerned.

  3. The powermodule has always worked fantastic, grows corals anywhere and pulls great color rendition but I've always felt there was just a little something missing. I tried supplementing with leds and it still wasn't quite there. I've always chased the look I used to have with halides and T5.

    So back to Radiums with T5 supplementation. I bought a Giesemann Spectra, the only good looking fixture that houses single ended halides.

  4. The prices you've been quoted sound about spot on to me... The $3700 quote actually seems cheap.

     The dimensions are going to cost you some but it's that rimless part that makes the price jack up so much higher because of the necessary glass thickness and the lower euro bracing. You'll just have to bite the bullet if that's what you really want.

    Personally I don't know I'd want to own a rimless tank that size. Mine still gives me nightmares every now and then thinking about a few small strips of silicone holding that thing together from a total disaster.

  5. I'm going to be selling my ATI Powermodules, these are the early version that are T5 only NOT the LED hybrid Powermodule but MUCH nicer and better built than the Sunpower!

    I have an 8x54w unit and a 6x54w

    I should have theme ready to go end of next week once my new fixture arrives.

    Both will come loaded with bulbs that are less than 2mo old. May be able to offer some extra bulbs as well since most of you know I keep about 20 extra bulbs around at all times lol.

    $450 for the 8x54w

    $300 for the 6x54w

    Prices are firm.

    PM me for more information.

  6. Take it all $100!

    Lots of great pieces, almost everything is shelf rock that's been drilled and assembled with acrylic rods. Well over 100 pounds.

    All or nothing, just pulled from the tank needs to go asap!
