    The BLV 14k is still an "unknown" except that some say that it is a pure white and brighter than the 10k. I dunno. I get it now with the 150s. Well, it's ambitious. I don't like the AB T5 fixture, but that's quibbling honestly. I think that with you're setup you are definitely gonna have heat issues when the lights are on. If you've got that accounted for, it sounds intriguing...

    LOL yeah it will be tight, but after seeing those Japanese tanks, im sure I can squeeze them in!

    Well the 250w ABs, from what i understand, are only about 11x11" wide.

    The other three 150wers take hardly any space, as they are at an angel to the tank, they sort of “hang over” the edge, and shine in. If possible I would like to add some more T5 or overdriven NOs later too. Between these Pendants later.

    Again, sorry for the crappy paint work!


    What 250w bulbs should I run? I want, one light blue, and the other perfect white. Would the BLV 14k be better than the 10K? (pure white?)

    Thanks

    Can you really get that many pendants over a tank of that size???

    It looks really neat. I can't wait to see it competed.

    New Lighting for my tank

    Gday, My tank NEEDS a lighting upgrade!

    I also plan to rearrange all of my corals, i want a "sloped" theme, with the right side full of SPS, near the surface, bright white light (shallow).

    Going left, a slope downwards, to the sand bed. following the downward slope, bluer light, suggesting deeper water. On the left, mostly softies and LPS and clams.

    Here is a rough idea:

    The tank is 72x 18x 20 with the overflow and CLs on the right, along with a WB when i can.

    Im looking for any suggestions/problems you guys see.
    Cheers
Working...
