It's a type of sea pen. Looks like it's called "obese sea fan"

Got it for $20. I think they're more expensive in other places, but we were in a shop in LA where all the wholesalers are so things tend to be cheaper.

Light strip came in from eBay today. It's pretty dim, but maybe it will work...

The fans work great! After only 12 hours the temp dropped 5 degrees (77-72 F). Turned it off for a night and the temp is now 76.

Here's a shot of the sump.

Are they waterproof? Id probaly rig a arm with a piece of trim to stick it too and put it on the rim of the sump. Right over the chaeto or whatever your gonna keep. You can always clear silicone over the leds to waterproof them.

Yeah they're waterproof. I think I might do that, but I wanted to keep mangroves and have it high enough where it wouldn't touch. Seems like an easy little DIY project.

Sad to say that last night Copper died b/c of the ich. I'll be taking out the blenny and putting it in my 70 g. He has no ich and I'll fw dip him before putting him in.

So my LFS said the seahorses were orangish yellow indicating they weren't very healthy (supposed to be a bright orangish red). I have to run the tank 8 weeks without fish anyway. This sets things back...
