    Arnold, when Jeremy was at my house a couple weeks ago he told me it is a blue hammer.

    I had never heard that a blue hammer exists and always thought that it was a green hammer with not so much green in it :)

    What kind material did you use for your Lighting stand on your frag tank?
    What kind of lighting and how many watts on that frag tank?

    I used 3/4" PVC pipe, elbows, T's and end caps for the lighting stand and spray painted it black. The lighting on the frag tank is an Icecap ballast and pendant with a 250W DE 14k Phoenix Bulb

    nanocube-boy, the pendant is the light fixture with reflector that holds the bulb:

    Lyn, I bought this one about 8 years ago at a LFS in Los Angeles. It was more than double the size of what I have now when I upgrade to a 156g last year. I put some frags up on DBTC last year but had it marked as Green Hammer and I believe only one person was interested. A couple months ago I brought a piece with about 15 heads to Atlantis and did a trade.

    I sure hope you got the Blue hammer trade instead of the green hammer trade. :)

    Nope, at that time I had never even heard of the existence of a blue hammer so I told him I had a not so very green "green hammer"... :(
