:-bd nice

But, why have it setup outside ? We usually do it inside our rooms to avoid the sudden fluctuatons that occur. Do the factors remain within suitable limits and thus not a matter of concern ?

Lol, the Mrs got p*ssed at me that's how it ended up on the balcony, it's worked for the better. I spend more time on the balcony than in the flat, I have a quite large sump area of over 250 litres, water changes and maintenance are easier as spillage is not such an issue. The downside is lots of flying insects, possible monkeys, snakes, frogs, lizards and rats, mosquitoes can be rampant at dusk.
Temperature not an issue, hopefully I'll get the chiller running soon.

Hey what's up. Wondering how far your tank has progressed.

The tank is up and running, been up for a few months, doing ok.

Right now battling algae, only got one fish in the tank, I had a clown but it jumped during a thunderstorm two weeks back, hoping to get three more fishes in quarantine this week.

The controller not running yet, unfortunately my laptop stopped working, replacement motherboard was faulty, so hopefully I'll finish up soon.

Got the chiller working a long time back, works very well. I got some new connectors for the lights to be installed, those cheapo dB connectors suck. Thinking about making my lights a t5ho hybrid.

Will update once everything is set up and running properly.
