I just wrote the app for my specific application.
I'm a software architect by trade, so its simple enough.

I also have no background.
by keeping the back room dark I give the illusion of depth. looks like the fish just float in darkness.

OK refugium is working and my nitrates are 0
I have not done a water change in 3 weeks, I just add water.




now that proof on concept is done, time to switch out the plumbing to pvc.
this time I think I will spray paint it black so it does not stand out.

This tank is beautiful. I love the rock work around the frame. Seeing this tank has inspired me to get an in-wall aquarium once I own a house.

thanks guys, it was hard work getting it set up but now the tank takes care of itself. almost maintenance free, lol

just have to add water.

I just found a hundred or so snails in the refugium today, have no idea where they came from, probably was on the plants. hopefully they won't cause me a problem. I don't need an army of snails taking over my DT !!!!!
