  • I wanna your opinion about making lighting system

    Hi~ all~

    I have plan to make cube tank. (100x100x50cm LxWxH)

    and do lighting system BLV 250W 10K 2~3ea, 2 T5,2 VHO....

    and I wanna..

    1. make topless tank (for being able to see corals in upper side)...
    2. no canopy (I will hang my pfo pendant)

    and the problem is..How can I install my T5s and VHOs.. :crap:

    I was thinking all day in yesterday and searching various forums. but I did

    not find the solution

    I wanna your DIY expert guys' ideas in zeovit forum...

    Could you help me?

    If I can not have solution, I should change the lighting plan
    from MH+ T5s and VHOs to only MH (2~3 Phoenix only or blv+phoenix. or blv+20K)

            I dont have any pics due to i never built one but it shouldnt be hard at all if your handy and if your not handy worse case of scenerio its like building a box same and mount the t5's and MH's to the top and have walls all 4 sides enough to cover the lights and reflectors

              You're right, combo pendant fixtures that are nice enough to hang out in the open aren't cheap.

              Other units to look at are Aqua Medic and Arcadia.. they'll be a little cheaper but not by very much.
