    So, I think I always knew that when the lights were on, the PH would rise and with them off, the PH would fall. I sort of also pictured it in my mind that as the lights were more intense, then the PH would rise and then fall as the intensity ramped down. However after really tracking this data over the last 5 months (that I have), that is not 100% the case.

    My lights come on at 10 am and ramp in intensity over 4.5 hours, have 1 hour of Peak light then ramp down over 4.5 hours to just a faint moon light. that goes completely black at midnight. Moonlight comes on a 1% at 6 am as I kind of like to see it when I am getting ready for work. it is already light at home anyways.
    it is neat to overlay these graphs ( pardon the change in the intensity, I had moved the light when we moved so I had to lower it for a period.

    Your stuff is looking top notch my friend, can't wait to see what you add next. And congrats on downsizing to something that is easier to enjoy. I used to have 100+ Gal tanks and I love my little 40 reef that I have now. Way less stress ;)

    Not to thread jack but sc aquarium, your skimmer is amazing. Looking great pickup, can't wait to go bare bottom.
