I've been waiting on this thread for a while now, be good to see how it's all worked out in one place and show others something different.
Always a good idea to buy extra’s with PVC if you’re a plonker
:lol: I remember when you sent me this photo a while back, it's so easy to make errors so plonker or not I don't think it matters - order some spares. ;)

@Siege has invited me over to hang his solar RGB lights for him @Jayefc1

I bet he shouts out “thank you peasant” as he kicks me aside once the holy illumination is setup to his satisfaction!

“Three times solar RGB... So... Relaxing...”

Alas... My children see to every last penny in the meantime :lol:

Anyway, surprise surprise everything grows very well and quickly:

Not very interesting in and of itself.

Started to plant other things now such as H’ra on the left and Aragauia in the gaps in the Millennium Stone.

The ONF Flat One is running at 80% in a tank that is less than a foot depth to substrate. Things are looking promising and there’s plenty of opportunity to have a play. It’s a pretty stable system.

So far the fertiliser regime has been played with and a transition from RO to full tap water has been implemented. Will give some feedback in due time.

@Geoffrey Rea @Jayefc1

Alright peasants, the Excellent Geoff came round and installed the Lights with me (I drunk beer and he used the complicated tools!)

It was easy for him to get in as the drawbridge has malfunctioned and is stuck in the down position :)

It only cost me 2 crates of beer and about a hundred quids worth of Dominoes, abosulute bargain. I even let him sleep in the servant quarters!

Picture of finished lights and the aftermath of a tradesman :lol:

A whirly thing only the king of light could have such witch craft

When you say he offered was there a little preasure on him with say a rack or bucket of slowly dripping water and a wet cloth maybe covering his face

Cheers

Ha ha !

No, the dog just growled at him and it was a done deal!

Geoff wanted to do it last night but we were about 6 beers in, so we didn’t think it was a good idea! :)

Apologies in advance. About to cover the lot in Pinnatifida.

Do love the Millennium Stone though but ultimately this is a test tank. Looking to play with plant forms under differing conditions.

To be fair the rock was only ever positioned to anchor plants on but it has been nice having a simple Iwagumi style for a while.

Turned off the Co2 for today. Not advising anyone else do this unless you fancy some potential drama.

Wanted to see just off visually looking at the drop checker how much Co2 is being gassed off in a 24hr period (plus what is up-taken by the plants in one photo period).

Still green at lights off at 8pm tonight (24 hours later) but not too shabby.
