    I have been debating the ATS vs. CHAETO refugium. I have watched videos, read several thread on each, and got some advise on a light for a refugium that does not cost $300. I am leaning towards a refugium with this light. Thank you crabs mcjones. lol. love your avatar.

    Is it silly to keep thanking people for the likes? :) I am not afraid to say I love 'em though, so thank you Crab.

    What looks like a wire coil on a drum will soon be the electrical outlets controlled by switches.

    All done. The top row of plugs are constant power and the bottom row are controlled by the switches.

    IMG_2959.JPG IMG_2960.JPG My QT electrical got an upgrade too. I now have enough plugs without looking like the A Christmas Story outlet and even got a bonus split plug with an on off switch.
    Still a few more things to finish in the fishroom but the big stuff is all done!

    thank you tom01.
    Thank you for following. These upgrades to the fishroom are the results of wishes I made over the last almost 8 years. you know..."wish I had this----wish I had done that---" :)

    Highs and lows in this hobby, but perseverance really counts! Been reefing for longer than id guess many R2R folks have been alive LOL and I have made it through two massive tank crashes and lots of setbacks. Had neomeris one time too ..... what a massive pain. Came back from X-mas to find three fish in QT, that had looked great, dead as proverbial door nails. No clue why.
