Thanks Cheryl, it worked out better than I had hoped.

Good Grief John.....this is an amazing looking tank. It almost makes me want to give up my reef and do a planted tank.
Thanks, I actually spend more time on this tank than the reef with the faster growth. I don't have a sump or an ATO so I spend more time there also. I started off my recent round of aquariums with this planted tank. It was low tech, PC lighting and no pressurized CO2, for a couple of years then I went high tech.
I think it's amazing. I'm sure you don't have an issue with algae growth in that tank!
Very little, I get dust and spot algae on the glass and have some cyano where the cleaning fish can't get to it.
That's crazy. Hmmmmm I have 2 175 watt MH's I'm not using. I got the lighting, now I need to find a tank.
And a good CO2 register, a CO2 tank and a reactor. Plus you will need to dose iron, potassium and a micro nutrient mix at a minimum or you will be growing more hair algae than plants.
That tank is so beautiful, John... I'm in awe every time I see it.
Thank you, now to get the reef looking and growing like this tank. Well the looking part any way.
