Lovely set up and house, all around. Beautiful job, rbarn! I would love it if my husband wanted to build a setup like this!
btw, here in Seattle, we call those 'rain gardens' Mosquito larvae takes ~48 hours to hatch. If you plan your substrate and plantings to rid any standing water within 2 days, you can avoid mosquito problems.
Sorry for no updates guys. Tank is still dry and empty. Been focusing on other projects and hobbies this past year so that I have time to dedicate to the inside tank when water does go in. (buying lots of new furniture, finishing the bog garden, put a supercharger on my Ford Raptor, blah, blah)
Back on it and starting on mounting the lighting system now. Watch for some more updates now.
My new Koi pond is what kept me busy this past year, but it is finally stabilized and self sustaining. Just waiting on the Koi to grow up now, cant wait till they are 2-3' long.
7' deep outdoor aquarium that stays crystal clear and clean. Took some tinkering and a few algae blooms, but it seems to have settled in nicely now with very little weekly maintenance.
Been wiring up LED power supplies and trying to figure out how to make a custom sliding track mount for the 100W LED pendant lights this weekend. Think I have it figured out now. Going to use window curtain tracks. Tried track lighting tracks but they were too flimsy
Dude. I am so insanely jealous of you. No holds barred for expenses, a three hundred gallon tank, a koi pond, bog garden, and all that land? Can I come live with you?
I can only hope that one day i could have an eighth of what you have!
Subscribed. I'm impressed to say the least; I have to say that I'm pleased that you've decided to switch to the LED fixtures. Ever since I've switched to the ones for my 90P, I've been a convert and I've read a lot of great things about the ones you're using (I think Jeff Senske has used them?)...can't wait to see this bad boy filled, planted and stocked! Hope you're buying some really awesome couches and chairs to enjoy the fruits of your hard earned $$ for all of this!!!
