Funny you mention the lightning thing.. I had actually tried to work out doing something like that for a friend with a 1200g tank lol
(We have a machine shop at our disposal and were thinking of a belt driven system with MHs that moved every quarter hr (extra distance beyond tank for dusk/dawn) as well as led's for the moon light on a similar setup.)
He has a controller so we could easily dim/shut off the light for phases and the odd occasional solar eclipse.

Our biggest problems were 1) heat 2) not catching his house on fire and 3) recessing the deal (more heat, more potentially burning of the house)

Fun to dream up tho

(and hey, I have ocean sounds playing very softly near my tank..if only to soothe the rock atm)

in the pool industry we measured pool salinity in PPM, the avereage salt water pool should be around 3200 ppm, the ocean I heard was wround 30000 ppm. What unit of measurement do you guys use in determing SG?

SW tanks are also measures in ppt. The ocean is around 35ppt which is roughly equal to 1.027
