Just had mine coverted from Planted to Saltwater set up last week.
Just started the cycling process with cured live rock and 50/50 live sand/dry sand mix to start a minireef.

niiice is that the stock lighting ?
Nope, that lighting in that picture was just:

x2 Blue led strip
x2 MR11 12V 10 SMD LED
x1 Coralife Mini Compact Fluorescent 50/50 Bulb

On other news though, I finally finshed my LED mod using 4/4 CREE XP-E RB/CREE XP-G CW. Time to finally stock this baby with some coral. :smokin:

Here is an old pic of the light mod I did for better coverage on the edge

Right now I added more blues in the light mix.

Had some LED issues so I'm now running a Nova Extreme T5 setup on my Edge. Also added on a Koralia Nano 240.

Bulbs are a 460nm actinic and I believe a 12000K daylight (TruLumen). The frags I have (Paly, Zoa, GSP) seem to be liking it so far.

I kinda lost the stock look of the tank but that's not a huge deal - I'll get it back once I try the LED route again :)

Just a cellphone pic, I'll get some better pics with my DSLR later.

Anyone know of a good solution to handle the water splash? Or any know a good filter system to swap out the power filter for this tank? I am tempted to set up one along side my 2G picos but the salt creep creeps me out.

@yah-the submariner - as for cycling I did mine fishless and just live rock and sand plus cocktailshrimp. Mine cycled for about 3 weeks since I got live rock and sand.
As for lighting, There are MR 11 LEDs you can use and just add those blue strip lights for a cheap fix but will probably be not strong enough for corals.
You can add the coralife 50/50 bulb for better light. Coverage though is not that good with a stock hood.

@Bryce&mandy - Those are 5050 car dome leds from ebay.
I'm getting rid of the led fixture that is placed outside the hood if you are interested since I did another light fixture using powerbrites.

Got the itch again for a light fixture remodel since i got a good deal on powerbrites.
This model is the white and blue mix strip over the edge and my DIY acrylic arm from some scraps I bought at an acrylic store.
I also attached 2 PC fans to be put in use in the summer months to cool the tank down.
Without further ado, here are the pics of the new light set up...
