    Today, we assembeled th ligthing and the canopy is basicly done. All we need to do is install the trims and order the doors. (we're not going to make those because of time and the plywood is always slightly bent so its hard to make the doors not curve.

    The canopy looks a little bit high, but it'll look fine when we install the sight cabinets. It will look like the one in the drawing, but no speakers and there will be three cabinets. One is flush with the stand, another one will be with the tank and the last one will flush with the canopy.

    The fixture does look a little low, but thats the best we could do. We measured the fixture and put like an inch gap for assembly, but we forgot about the wires . So its a tight fit. When we were seembling it, the sides of the canopy kind of popped out so we had to screw it back in.

    The stand is covered with the stained poplar and is complete. With the exception of the top and bottoms....also the doors

    The two side cabinets's skeleton are completed. Next step is to make the shelfs and install/stain the wood that will be covering it.

    Left Side:
    bottom-Calcium Reactor
    middle-controllers and wiring
    top-storage

    Right Side:
    bottom-ATO
    middle-storage
    top-storage

    193.
    194. ]
    195.

    (the door is not black. That was the door that came with it, but I'm not using it)

    a few weeks ago, I noticed some of my corals started to loose color. Checked my parameters and everything was as usual. A few days ago, my corals started to bleach and again, everything was in check. Until I felt that the water was a bit warm. I don't really check my temperature until summer, but I guess I should now. It was 88 degrees. (no problem with heater btw)

    I started to put ice cubes in bags into the water, but it only camedown a couple of degrees after about an hour with the lights off. Today, I took off my canopy and the temperature dropped pretty fast. I decided to re design the top It won't be a full canopy, but only a place to hang the MH and a few spotlights for various affects.

    My new design. There will be a piece of wooden beam across the two side cabinets. The wooden beam is supported by a metal rod like thing for extra support to hang the MH. On the four corners, there will be 4 small lights for a little thing I'm thinking about.
