    I really like them better than the originals. These are the +. They have the different color choices and I like that they are remote so they all change at the same time. The hardest thing is the programming of the remotes.
    I think they put out a great amount of light.

    I think I have 10 of them so far. I need a lot more of them. LOL
    I like the way my tank color looks with them.

    Wow, I haven't posted since August.
    Sorry, I have sort of lost interest over the last few months. I have been maintaining
    the room and fish but not much work has been done and I have not collected any fry in a while.

    So time for an update.

    I guess that was not exactly right since I did build that stand. LOL

    The next thing I really need to work on is the top row. I need to move and install a bunch of 10's. I need them to separate more males for the BFD. I only about 30 colored up so far. Need the 10's set up to get them out of the grow out tanks

    There are a bunch of old tanks on the other side of the room that I need to get rid of.

    I think there are
    6 55gallon tanks. (one has frame split on top)
    2 40gallon long
    2 33 gallon long
    1 30 gallon
    possibly a 20 high or two
    possibly a 40 breeder


    Now these tanks are used, old and painted. They are not drilled.
    They are not clean and are not show tanks.......

    I want to empty this area out soon.
    They are free.
    You must help get them out of basement and you must come and get them.

    In about 3 weeks, what is left will be delivered to the landfill.

    I live in Forest Hill Maryland
    About 30 minutes North East of Baltimore.

    The 2 33gal are gone.
    I have someone else coming for a bunch but with the cold weather I put them on hold. Did not want someone to go through the trouble of coming all the way up here, only to have them shrink in the back of the truck due to single digit temperatures. I’m sure that would cause a leak.
    So all are on hold for another week until they come up and get what they want.
    I will then put it up again.

    In the mean time I am taking a bunch of the new tanks back down and trying to seal up the bulkheads better. I keep getting puddles.
    I am then moving them to their final spot and filling with either holding females or colored males for the BFD.
