Well not really i was on here for a while and just fell off for a while but im back and with a new tank bigger than ever it was a 120 that i used for salt for about 3 months and it got to be to high to maintain but i have always had luck with my cichlid babys i love 'em so much But so im back hopefully after a week or two it will be back up with minor fish in place... here is the tank specs :

48" odyssea lighting setup here is the specs for it i love it i took it to my work and used it on our planted tanks up there for a while but here are the specs let me know what you think it really kicked but at my store on the 120 up there: LIGHT SPECIFICATIONS
