How many temperate tanks do you have?


I have a combined 325 gallon system.

200 gallon main display.

110 gallon lobster tank display/sump.

15 gallon flow through octopus tank.

I'm setting up a 30ish gallon tank soon for inside my house.

I've been telling him to start charging admission for months. ;)

Glad he's getting used to you. Sounds fascinating.

You are going to auction him? Make sure to get pics of the buyer's tank with him/her standing next to it, plus testing info, how long it has been set up, temperature/ params, etc.

Programming needed? Ask me for free!

Now with Eagle PCB design skills. See a good led driver IC?

 

Typhon reprogrammed- bell curve dimming!

Touchscreen LED Controller

Cree 4 channel MCPCB

I tell you these Mexicans work very hard for cheap

If they are willing to drop the coin necessary to buy this guy, I'd bet they will have done their research :D

That would be the best :) I have a list of all the public aquariums in the United States, I haven't started calling them yet but it's part of list of things to do.

Btw, I took the liberty of emailing a friend who works in the NYC Aquarium a link to the aquabid listing. He works at the exhibits.
