That is really upsetting about your wifes' situation. Truely sorry you are dealing with that on top of the current global crisis.

Nice work on the recirculation addition and video. If u ever needed to (fingers crossed) use it for the display in a pinch I would be simple.enough to cut it out and replace.

Glad things are going well. As far as the mention of the flow and pocillapora growth, did u change something and notice a difference? Or just a.general.statement about you being happy with your current flow pattern/intensity?

Just a statement to reenforces the effects of flow and growth. No changes.

Yes the crap she's been through is astonishing. She's been home now for a month. Quiting the job at the hospital was a good move with all that's going on now.

The tank does look awesome.
Thank you Victoria!

Whites came on just awhile ago. Water is exceptionally clear this afternoon (morning to me with work)

Going to mix some water today.

I was doing a water change last night and got distracted by one of the granddaughters and over shot how much I took out by ten gallons! I didn't have enough water to fill the system back up. Had to run the RO/DI overnight and now I need to make 10 gallons and fill the rest up before going to work!

Mistakes happen! Lol

Hi, Don.
I'm about ready to install my Mars Aqua lights. Couldn't replace any of the leds since they are smd. So I have the standard layout.
Wanting to remove the lenses.
Question is what would you recommend which lenses i should keep on?
I have (8) 12000k, (6) 7500k and (6) 3500k.

I have my lights installed. They are 10" above the water and 3" apart and from end of tank. Tank is 26" tall.
What would you recommend to setup the whites and blues percentage?
I don't have a par meter to setup with.

Thanks
I'd start out at 50% blue, 20% white and go from there.
