Just finished reading through the whole thread, your tank is amazing!! . If you don't mind answering
How much frozen and nori do you go through in a day, like 2 sheets etc?
I might of missed it but what are the dimentions of the tank?
Are you going to be adding more lights once you add corals?
Do you think you could maintain this without your staff / team?

Ok. Nori we feed 2 sheets per clip 2x per day. Have 12 clips. 48 narrow sheets a day.
Frozen we measured about 1.5 lbs per day. Light we added more. Need to do another par dive and see now. Have room for two more easy. No. This needs someone full time plus me. Or 2 people in staff too

I have been following this thread for a while! What an amazing system, i applaud the scale and attention to details. Thank you for sharing!

I would love to see this system added to your set up:
It's a cool coral spawning and propogation system created by a few molecular biologists :)

Just want to say I love seeing pictures of your system and the videos I see you post on some Facebook groups. I always have to stop and watch them all. Thanks for taking so much time to share your amazing setup with the rest of the community. I love how your tank is so large that the fish seem to swim around in slow motion compared to a more modest sized tank. very mesmerizing
