    I ended up moving this tank down to the LFS I work at, Elite Reef in Denver, Colorado.

    A couple of things bleaches out after the move but seem to be recovering well. If you're in the area, stop by and check it out at our brand new shop!

    Testing out a new light over this tank. Very interesting innovation.

    This guy stated what I say all the time. Crap happens, No reason to cry " I'm out", "done". A loss of a coral or corals or having algae problems is no reason to quit.

    Now! For a more interesting thing. I hope this guy chimes in. What was the water temp on this set up having the lights on non stop for a week? I get there probably is a chiller, open top which means evap. must have been crazy and a chiller can only keep up for so long having the condensor and coil right next to each other. They'd start to cancel each other out I would think running for so long which would add heat to the tank too.

    But what does this say about the hardiness of coral? Light 24/7? Does this or can it disprove global warming impact on the reefs? After all this is a closed system not accessible to billions of gallons of surrounding water nor the cooling effect of night time. Just thoughts.

    This system uses a controller to run a heater or fan which doesn't allow it to deviate from 78 degrees by more than half a degree. If it had been a halide however, it may have been a different story. Kessil doesn't really throw much heat.

    For the record though, I'm friends with someone who was on the chasing coral film crew and am definitely a believer in heat bleaching after what I've seen through him.
