Love your videos. Very entertaining
Can you fill us in on your substrate? What exactly is all that's circled in red?
Most tanks I see have dirt capped with gravel/sand then plants. Yours is like nothing I have seen. It looks like the bottom of a river bed.

Clean tanks around the 8:30 mark.

|ReluctantHippy||Quite a bit. He's a voracious eater and goes after anything that enters his cube - including my fingers. This last cleaning I got away without any shocks but the week before my arm was tingling for 15 minutes after he hit me twice. I've been feeding him night-crawlers; around two a week. I'm sure he'd gladly eat daily but I'm in no hurry for an enormous dangerous cat and he's keeping nice and fat as is. I must say he's very lazy.|

Rescaped the 40g a bit today. Tried to give it some of the depth it's lost in the past year. Touched up the 100g as well. Almost have a full carpet of glosso.

New Electric Catfish - I had been babying this guy for weeks at the shop and just had to take him home with me. I have plenty of larger tanks for him to transition to.
This is my other recent adoption from the shop. Great eater and no one wanted him. I call him my Half Dome Angelfish

|ReluctantHippy||Thank you. I'll try and get some stills up in the next few days.|

I purchased mine from VVME. They have a local warehouse and a 1 year guarantee which in my experience with cheaper Chinese LED wares is priceless.
They are doing a great job for me; those quoted in the picture above are only 10w units over ~10g cubes so I consider it low light and have planted up with mostly crypts in those tank, but they are growing out pennywort fine as well as some small swords.
I have very similar larger arrays over my 100g and they work great for plants - I built my panels for high light terrestrial plants and they worked wonders. I have tested the spectrum and they check out pretty well: (tested with an RGB biased camera)

Slowly and steadily coming together. I've been having a terrible time keeping my temps up on the system. I'm running ~1100w of heater between the three tanks and sump and have been barely maintaining 74f. A couple of times I've tripped the GFIs at night drastically dropping temps as well. Today's task will be to insulate each tank in foam on three sides. Not the best picture but shows some progress:
