 Ok  trigger  (I  like  triggers  so  I'll  call  you  that  Chuckle  )
 one  observation-your  skimmer  should  be  in  the  pre-filteration  stage  -  not  post  filteration  (atleast  that  is  what  I  figured  from  the  pic.)
 let's  see  if  I  can  explain  this  IMUO  the  assembly  should  be  -
 tank-overflow-skimmer-baffles-refugia-sump-chiller-tank
 Please  let  me  know  of  what  lights  are  put  to  use  in  your  beautiful  looking  tank?
 Oops!  I  forgot  I  also  want  to  see  your  overflow  Very Happy

 My  tank  consists  of  :  -
 
 2  Actinic  Blue  (  2  feet  )  and  3  Philips  (  6500  K  Each  )  True  lite.  
 
 Regarding  the  Protein  Skimmer  i  have  understod  what  you  want  to  say  and  i  will  do  the  necessary  changes.  I  am  not  a  electrical  guy  and  so  doesnt  have  a  good  knowledge  on  the  lighting  part.
 
 Any  advise  on  the  electical  part  is  most  welcome.

 Wether  the  info  posted  is  true  or  not  that  is  not  for  us  to  know  but  we  do  know  that  if  your  marine  tank  is  not  more  than  4-5  months  old  PLEASE  do  to  not  introduce  higher  and  expensive  forms  of  live  stock  because  
 
 1.  Your  tank  is  not  ready  to  house  them
 
 2.  You  are  on  a  learning  curve.
 
 By  buying  expensive  Livestock  you  are  not  only  killing  the  poor  things  but  also  creating  scarcity  in  the  market  therby  affecting  the  price.

 Very  nice  tank  and  setup,  dude.
 Only  problem  is  I  can't  the  fish  at  all.  I  ll  I  can  see  are  little  blobs  of  colour.
 
 Edit  :  Just  noticed  that  your  two  powerheads  are  opposing  eact  other  albeit  at  different  levels.  Wouldn't  it  be  a  waste  to  do  that  as  you  are  just  having  the  flow  cancel  out?

 The  picture  was  taken  when  the  fishes  went  out  into  hiding.  If  you  people  drop  in  personally.  I  will  be  able  to  show  you  the  fishes.  Regarding  the  Powerhead  i  am  still  a  newbie  and  dont  have  much  knowledge  about  the  currents  and  lighting  parts.  Maybe  on  sunday  I,  rajeev  and  apurva  will  be  meeting  and  we  willl  definately  talk  on  this  and  make  changes  accordingly.    
 
 Acquascape  i  will  buy  the  PI  lights  (  10000K  )  and  change  it  accordingly>  i  Hope  in  a  months  time  my  tank  will  be  in  a  sparkling  condition.
 
 Regarding  the  algae  formation  all  the  precautions  will  be  taken  careof.  
 
 Hey  acquascape  i  hope  you  will  arrange  to  send  me  the  micro  algae.

 Nauzer,  your  lighting  suggestions  are  welcome  and  are  ideal  too.  But  practically  if  you  see,  most  of  the  LRs  are  collected  from  the  Bay  of  Bengal  at  the  gulf  of  Munnar  and  a  very  few  at  the  Gulf  of  Kutch.  If  you  compare  the  rocks  from  India  and  the  Fiji  Reefs,  lighting  requirements  for  the  latter  need  to  be  closer  to  ideal,  as  the  rocks  there,  are  used  to  live  in  crystal  clear  waters  and  hence  better  light  penetration.  Indian  waters  are  far  more  opaque  in  comparision  and  the  depth  of  collection  varies  from  5  ft  to  15  ft.  Taking  10ft  as  an  approx  depth,  its  only  a  nominal  light  what  the  indian  LRs  recieve  and  those  have  adapted  to  live  in  these  conditions.
 
 I  have  seen  tanks  with  LRs  that  are  running  for  2+  years  under  pretty  ordinary  'Hitachi'  aquarium  lamps,  but  with  reflectors.  May  be  the  reflectors  do  the  trick!

 LP,  that  analysis  is  pretty  deep.
 
 Aqua  looking  forward  to  your  thoughts  on  that.
 
 Tigger  :  I  think  by  putting  the  right  spectrum  of  light  ...it  will  also  discourage  the  growth  of  bad  algae  and  will  promote  a  much  more  healthy  algae  bloom.
