All your base,

First off, I want to say your name gave me a good chuckle. I'm from the generation where that saying was one of the big deals. Love it!

Secondly, that's one hell of a system. I normally don't like a lot of DIY in an aquarium, but wow, what a sleek and well designed entire system. Well done!

Lastly, before I go back to read the thread , I once had a boss (reef hobbyist) at an aquatics shop who said "Reef tanks are the neon signs of the aquatics highway and planted tanks are the rest stops." after seeing what I did with the planted displays in the store. Your initial post about the "in your face-ness" of reefs reminded me of that.

Now, to go read both (RC and TPT) build threads.

I've never regretted over engineering a system, but often regretted under engineering one.
