    Very nice. I saw the intention in the gravel for the pad you refer to. That makes really good sense to me for the structure. I guess when I was referring to solar I was meaning something more like skylights or solar tubes. Keep up the good work it looks awesome. I can't wait to see this done.

    You just re-oriented my concept of a "large sump"

    Very cool, one thing I think you guys will definitely learn about me during the course of this thread, is that I like to keep things as absolutely simple as possible.:) This design serves a number of very specific purposes, but does so with very little effort or room for errors and quirks.

    As long as it's done and ready so I can get a grab bag in a few months when my tank is ready, quirks are fine!

    Make no mistake, I am not skipping a beat at all as far as running the show goes. There will be no latency or lags in coral availability at all, at any point. The transition will be swift and seamless. The only difference in my daily operations between now and when it's done, is that I won't be working inside a dark and humid dungeon, and I'll have lots more space to propagate! lol!

    In other words, if any of you want a battle box just say the word! :)

    At least you have your priorities straight!!!

    I need to get my invert/coral QT set up in the near future. I've been in a battle of wills with my DT that has made that lower priority. :confused:

    Can't wait to see what comes in my next box!
