    Have tried a couple of light combinations and found Vertex the best but to big for the signature 900, so opted for the IT5080.

    Tried tmc illuminair 1200 but still feel the it5080 performs and looks better. Not modified the sump just put a bm curve 3.5 in the third chamber. The return is an ehiem not sure ratting but you dont need too much power or the overfolw wont cope.

    Skimmer seems to be working well, only had it for 10 days. All the new fish doing great, just a bit paranoid about buying anything now.
