Shading is a great problem to have! Amazing tank, and fantastic results! I am also focusing on stability these days, and redundancy like having dual return pumps.

Your par was quite a bit higher than I expected, but I see more and more people running levels like that when their tanks are as filled in as yours is. How long do you run that level of par per day?

Thank you!
