Aquarium Related Classifieds : 6 New ATI T5 Bulbs for Sale or Trade

Subject: 6 New ATI T5 Bulbs for Sale or Trade
Posted: April 10 2019 at 3:33pm

I bought 6 new T5 bulbs for a 48" fixture to eventually replace my old set but then got divorced and NEVER used them other than to plug them in to make sure they worked after I received them from the supplier. I ended up selling my big tank and have finally decided to let go of these since they're too big for my 30 gallon. 
I paid exactly $128.70 for these. They are still in their original packing. If someone buys them all together, I'll take either $75 cash, corals, or a combo of cash and corals of relative value. I'm most interested in nice zoas and LPS (frogspawn, blastos, brains, scolymia, etc).
Here is what I have. This was the best combination the supplier suggested:   (2) ATI 54W Aquablue Special T5 HO Flourescents (these were $21.95 each)   (3) ATI 54W Blue Plus T5 HO Flourescents (these were $20.95 each)   (1) ATI 54W Purple Plus T5 HO Flourescent (this was $21.95)


Please let me know if you're interested.

Pity I just deleted and re-uploaded the video and changed the name before I saw your comment. I had to remove the annoying whirring sounds in the background.

Hello everyone! David here. The live food culture I mentioned in my intoduction post is making a lot of progress!
I have a cheap digital microscope that I've used to take photos and videos to document the first culture tank's development.
First off, can anyone help me identify this cute shrimpy denizen hiding in my live rock?


Next, copepods swarming in detritus:

I'll be in the Cottonwood Heights area tonight (Wed., 4/10) to pick up some fish from bur01014 and I REALLY need some chaeto for my tank. Does anyone fairly close to that area have some I could pick up while I'm in the valley, and if so, will you please let me know?

One of the first things I've read to do if a tank has a terrible algae problem is to switch to RO water, so that was a big reason I stopped using tap water.

I'm in Riverton and tried using tap water in my kitchen nano tank.    I started with rock, sand and water from my larger tank.  Over the course of a few months, algae took over worse than I've ever dealt with.  Switched back to RODI and haven't had a single algae issue since.  I am a firm believer in the use of RODI.

I used tap water when i got started and swtiched for the peace of mind that we know what is going into our tank. The further the water has to go to get to you, the more likely it has contaminates. City requirements for clean water does not always match what we would like for our tanks. Clean drinking water can still have ammonia, nitrate or other elements in it and that can cause problems in the tank. Did I have problems with it? no, but do I want to risk it. Nope

The cost of buying a rodi unit is well worth the piece of mind for me, I have thousands of dollars of corals and fish invested, so for under 200.00 it was an easy choice.

Depends what comes through your tap water. Adam Blundell used to use it with no problems.

With the amount of money in my tank, using rodi, just makes me feel safer.
