You could accomplish the same thing using programmable logic combining humidity sensors or top off with storm. So if you had 4 storms a day you could have it rain to increase humidity or control a mister or both during a storm.
I've wanted to do up a palidarium for years where the profilux could control rain, fog, lighting, etc.
I have enough parts I could actually do that now, just need a tank.
I think I just talked myself into building one, uh oh.

Your tank is quite the inspiration for figuring out some neat automation stuff.

Have it rain in the early evening would have to be a great way to oxygenate the water.

|GDominy||I actually used to have a sprinkler system that would "rain" over one of my reef tanks. It looked cool, but in the end I scrapped it because it made too much of a mess.|

|kwheeler91||Man that is awesome! Neat to see how the fish instinctively headed for the bottom of the tank during the "storm". All you need now is to T off of your return and put a sprinkler in there|

It's just your common dwarf aquatic frog. The fish pretty much ignore them (I have two).
I feed frozen foods twice a day every day so they always have food to eat. If I think they are getting thin I spot feed them for a few days. I haven't had to do that for a long time though. They know when it's feeding time and come out looking for food.
I feed frozen blood worms, mysis shrimp, cyclopeeze, glass worms, live mosquito larvae (during warmer months) and spirulina enriched brine shrimp.

Really nice tank, good videos too.
I noticed you have a froggy!! Can you tell me about him, what type is it and how does it do with the fish, rams ever give it trouble. I really want to add one to the community tank but read they can starve really easily and spot feeding in a 125 would be wicked hard I think.

Thanks :-) I dabbled in aquarium services for a while but I really didn't enjoy doing the maintenance for other peoples tanks. I've also managed a couple of fish stores in the past but have moved on to another career. This is just for fun now!
Shot another video tonight, this time I included a thunderstorm at about the minute 2:40 mark

|Vepr||Incredible tank. You should hire out for high tech aquarium designs. You could probably package that setup.|
