I have another led pendant that will become the center led cluster on the 7 footer. It will have 12 cool white, 12 royal blue, 6 red, 4 green leds. The current long led strip will be mounted end to end on either side of the center pendant. The current pendants on the left and right will be moved in front of the strip.
This new layout will have 3 really intense areas but still have a nice blend of rgb across the 7 foot length.
It is going to take a considerable amount of time to build the stand and save what I can for the new tank.
This tank journal will continue for quite some time as the tank will be running during the 7 foot build.

Wow is all i can say. i feel so unintelligent reading some of these SUPER high tech journals. i have NO idea where to even start with this kind of stuff. it almost feels like something you would have to go to school and learn how to do some of this stuff!
Nice to see a fellow Brittish Columbian on the forum! i Live in Kamloops, but i am actually moving to Nanaimo as soon as i can find a house i like enough to purchase! thanks for mentioning where you got your Tank, hopefully i can remember when i move to the Island and get them to build my dream tank, 250-300 gallons.
i am rarely blown away, but you have done it. i will never understand how some people are so good at the electrical and plumming in this hobby, ive only been in the hobby a year, maybe its something you pick up as you go along! one day i would love to have such an amazing tank, well done.

Well some big news, we just bought a house! This aquarium has to be dismantled and set up again in a month.
The wife gave me the go ahead to replace it with a 7 x 2 X2 foot tank though. So over the coming months this tank is getting a huge upgrade

Can you recommend a video editing program for a beginner? I have a canon 600d dsrl. Thanks.

|samee||Amazing. How much time during the week do you spend on scaping?|

|GDominy||I hit the tank hard with gluteraldehyde for 2 weeks, scrubbed it off the wood, stopped messing with my kh and let it settle down to about 2 degrees, increased my iron and ca/mg dosing. The algae has been going away on its own after that.|

Wow! I knew at the start of this thread that you were going to have jungle on your hands with how bright and powerful those LED's are. Such colors and lushness. The side shot really emphasizes the amount of plant mass you've got. Quite impressive.
I'm also battling BBA in a fully developed tank, tell me, did you have to manually remove some or did you manage to make it recede with increased/stable c02, nutrient levels, etc?
