Most of these shots are taken late in the evening...I'll get one mid day as well.

I have'nt run the halides over the vats except just to look a few minutes at night, in over a month
I will however run the 400 over the glass tank 12 hrs per day.

hey coastal
I have been renovating a farm house built in 1907 complete with a farm field on a main highway, I should be done and moved in a few months and will be building a new system.

This system worked very well but the new one should be better.

btw yours is lookin great !

hi all , been a while since I been here. Just thought I'd update.

I have moved and renovated a 100 year old farm house, now for coral farming not corn LOL. I will bee starting a new greenhouse detached. Also I am looking into opening a brick and morter store front.

Corals grew like crazy in the old greenhouse, so the design worked well, I learned alot and will make a better one this time :)
