It's very sad to see the end of this epic tank but in a way a bit of relief that the strapping held all that length of time. I know you were confident but I bet I wasn't the only one who winced a little everytime you updated.

On to the next one.

As a straight up noob I sat and read this from the start to finish admittingly skimming some of the stuff that went over my head. What a roller coaster ride.

How did those flood lights do? Were they the 6500k RGB rated ones peopel use as house lights you pick up for $40sh on amazon? I can't even remember what wattage you used were they 40s?

would a single one work for a low tech 22" deep tank 17"x19"?

Id suggest you asked this question in the lighting section of the forum, but yeah 1 of them lights might do just fine.

Mine are 50w, and I wish I went with warm white (they are cool white)

Ahh Filip, it’s always a wrench when a scape is torn down especially one such as “The High Tech Beast”. But what an epic journey. Thank you very much for sharing. Like everyone else I’m a little sad but definitely looking forward to whatever you choose to share next…

Thanks Tim
As Im typing this, Im looking at the empty tank and my motivation to do anything with it is fleeing me.

Might be a while before my motivation comes back, Ive quite a few other priorities at the moment which are 3 kids (including one special needs) and going self employed.
Perhaps when things get rolling my motivation will come back, or maybe its the pressure of half term that is supressing it. No idea 🤣

For now, the tank is sitting patiently.
I shall keep you guys updated whatever happens!
