DSB by KurtG[_3_]

sponges by jthread
I have numerous sponges starting to grow in the 45. The 30 already has a bunch. Some survived when we bought the lr. The change since i removed the bio matter (fun to say), from the 45 gallon, is noteworthy.

Tank Temps by KurtG
I ordered some more slimline fans, but my temp still swings from 77 to 84 in a day. Is 7 degrees too much? I was hoping to wait till next month to buy a chiller, but it seems like I need to do something sooner. --Kurt

Tanks by NoSpam
5 or so years ago the glass manufactures made a low lead level glass that is just like acrylic, as far as clarity. Why hasn't this glass come down to fishtanks or if it has could you give me an address for shopping/comparing? Thanks.

In researching lights to set up a new tank, I can't find anything relating Fluorescent tube wattage and MH wattage to lumens, or a comparison to incandescent...like you always see on CF tubes for home lighting, i.e. 20W CF equals a 100W incandescent bulb. I'm wondering...
