Incredible. Very clean and well thought out. Can you explain how you plumbed everything? I am particularly curious about the frag (QT?) tank?

Gotcha. I also go from obsessive in this hobby to dormant for 6+months at a time. Its weird but feel like we all do. I was curious what the height was of your metal stand?

2 bulbs from 2-9, 6 bulbs from 3-8, LEDs 8-11. I have been playing around with the schedule the last couple months. Reducing it.
