An update on Paul's 240-gallon SPS Reef Tank

I think this is part IV? I thought I'd give everyone a quick update on Paul's tank. After a lot of thought, he decided to change from the five Aquaillumination Vegas to an ATI power module which is a combination of T5 fluorescents and LED's.

Please let us know what is going on with the tank.
Any updates?
What bulbs are you guys using and what changes you had to do?
Are you using the True Actinic ATI bulb? How many?
Please tell us the combination of T5 bulbs and your observations.
Thanks!!!

Do you have a review of how this light has performed since it was added? I am really interested in knowing how the corals reacted and what the quality of the unit has been.

I took the 1, 2 and 3 video of Paul's tank as an inspiration for my own tank. Oke, i used an steel frame and Orphek led's but changed yesterday to ati hybrid! Funny to see this video today, haven't seen this one earlier! Are there any updates about the tank since Paul is running the Ati, how die the tank respons to the orther lighting?

Superb video, really a big fan of your series.
When are we going to see an update? I'd love to find out how the corals are doing under the fixture.
Also, if Paul ever wants an AquaticLog Pro account - just let me know.

Sounds funny to an old t5 guy like me. I'm still holding onto my t5s because of cost in covering a 6ft tank will good intensity and coverage. Had This system improved since then?

I've been looking into and saving for an ATI PM 48" 8 bulb. I've been on the fence but your review and description of the 60" secured my thoughts of buying. Your videos are awesome Than keep up the good work!

Thanks for the Videos Than.

I watch all of them Including the Ones on your other YouTube Channel (Tidal Gardens).

Can't wait for an Update on the T5 Videos (Much Much better Choice for SPS than LED for sure).

Great update! Bit surprised to see this tank changing to T5's tbh after all the hype of LEDs. There is no doubt in my mind that the new fixture will give awesome results, however I think after the initial cost of the LEDs I would of stuck with them.

Look forward to seeing the difference the t5's make as I'm still a fan of t5's and halides myself.

500 PAR at the bottom??? OMG!!! You can cover the whole tank with SPS with all this light! The only problem is the eletricity bill...

Awwsome video update. Dont know what to say about the led light cause I don't have AI's But I do have 6 t5's 5th each from giesmen on a tek lighting system and I have no complaints to say yet. Hope it all works out! It all looks great, those t5's look aaamazing.

I am running Vegas' as well and my coral have been doing great. My only complaint would be that they don't have the spread but my corals that are not directly under them are growing nicely

Took me months of fiddling with my Vegas' height and brightness. They've been dialed in for a year and couldn't be happier with the results. Hope the T5s work out.

Do you plan on removing the tusk? I know its a daunting task but a floor full of zoas would be so worth it.
