Nice comparison pics. The Kessil does seem a bit brighter (better detail in the foreground substrate) and there seem to be much less spill light. Hope you can get the fan quiet. Fan noise will rot...

They like caves and flat rocks.

I agree w/ prototyp3. Somethings not right here. If they actually do test them (big if here), why would they use a tank with livestock in it? Any organic material that got into the filter would get...

Wasserpest,
Happened upon this old thread.
So, what did you do? Are you a member of the solar panel pimp club?

Not sure what kind of wire frame would support 2000 lbs. I'm sure it would not be cheaper. The heavy duty shelves at HD are more than $100. The wood for this will be about $75. It's not all about the...

Just goes to show, there is one wacko in every crowd. :red_mouth
