45P Outdoor Infiniti Tank

My friend and I are doing a small experiment and using his 45P as an outdoor grow tank because we have so much explosive growth that we needed a mechanism to foster cuttings somewhere else to maintain the integrity of our main pieces.

We mounted the tank on top of his carnivorous gardens which his brother recently ruined, and it's a pretty cool look because you can see the San Francisco city and trees skyline through the back of the tank. Lots, lots, lots of natural lighting.

We are using EI dosing and harnessing the sun's power to evaporate the tank water so no water changes are necessary. We are not using any filtration system, just running a six inch air stone 24/7.

We are excited to see how the experiment turns out. If birds become a problem we may install a solar powered motion sensor and have a misting system to make them go away, or possibly a catapult that fires pudding if larger avian species like seagulls become a problem.

Thoughts and criticisms welcome.

Definitely the pudding catapult.
Skip the other two, they won't work.
