Love the glass idea you used for the plastic lid. Have you had any melting of the plastic?
No melting so far. Someone on another forum did tell me that they have had their plexiglass lids bow some over time.

My new light over my 55g stopped working yesterday. Going to switch out the bulb and balast to see if it's that. If not, I'm going to write the company and see what they'll do about it.
check the starter as well.

It seems some of the plants in bin 1 are drying out a bit. I think the bin is still quite humid. There is condensation all over the sides and top. The only thing that has changed is the light has been lowered onto the lid instead of hanging a few inches above. Is it possible for the light to dry out the plants while it is still very humid inside?
