 I  wanted  to  correct  the  light  directions  in  my  tank  called  Incomparable,  before  I  trim  the  plants.  I  had  recently  changed  the  bulbs  and  also  disrupted  some  of  the  wiring  because  they  go  through  another  tank  I  am  constructing  (The  GLMT).  So  I  have  to  set  everything  back,  and  so  I  am  repositioning  the  MH  lights.  I  had  built  this  seating  arrangement  so  that  I  could  stay  above  the  aquarium  water  and  work  inside  the  top.  The  position  is  as  cramped  as  if  you  were  under  a  car,  but  you  could  still  work.

 /offtopic  -
 
 Think  this  is  the  first  time  im  seeing  your  tank.  Never  seen  you  posting  any  tank  shots.  The  plant  growth  looks  superb.  Very  nice  tank.  
 
 And  ofcourse,  always  a  fan  of  your  DIY  stuff.

 I  thank  all  of  you  for  your  comments;  they  were  like  icings  on  the  cake.  The  cake  (tank)  keeps  me  young  and  going,  and  this  Icing  will  make  me  bake  a  few  more.
 
 Let  me  get  this  tank  back  on  foot,  and  working  again  (not  a  reset  but  a  restoration)  and  I  promise  to  share  it  with  you  all  by  starting  a  weekly  picture  journal.
 
 Now;  see  yesterday's  achievement.

 Nice  set  up,  what  is  the  total  wattage  with  MHs.
 
 How  will  you  dissipate  the  heat  ?  Are  you  going  to  employ  exhuast  fans  ?
 
 Would  love  to  see  your  set  up!
 
 Regards

 Other  than  the  5  X  150W  MH,  I  shall  also  employ  the  5  X  36W  T8.  The  T8  will  be  supplied  through  an  Inverter,  this  becomes  necessary  for  the  frequent  power  outage  we  face.  MH  bulbs  take  time  to  light  up  when  the  Genset  comes  on  but  we  need  some  light  inbetween  (like  the  sun  going  behind  a  cloud).
 
 I  have  rewired  the  T8  and  made  a  new  panel  for  their  ballast.  The  work  is  still  pending  and  I  will  complete  it  today,  along  with  the  re-wiring  of  the  heaters  and  filters.
 
 You  observe  3  circular  holes  on  the  lower  end  of  the  panel.  These  are  there  for  air  to  be  blown  into  the  tank.  Actually  the  panel,  you  see,  separates  this  tank  from  the  GLMT  tank  that  I  am  building  and  writting  about  in  a  different  thread.  The  panel  itself  is  dual  faced  and  the  other  side  becomes  the  panel  for  the  fixtures  in  the  GLMT.  I  have  installed  a  normal  220V  exhaust  which  will  blow  the  air  from  the  sump  cabinet  into  the  GLMT.  This  air  exits  the  GLMT  through  the  3  circular  holes  you  see.  I  have  a  ventilator  in  this  tank  from  where  the  hot  air  will  exit.
 
 I  hope  I  have  answered  all  the  questions  raised.

 Cramped  position,  myriads  of  wires  to  be  threaded  through  holes  in  the  walls,  and  single  handed  -  finally  the  tank  is  restored  to  some  semblance  of  normal  working.  The  final  work  was  re-connection  of  the  CO2  supply.  Now  I  have  to  trim  the  plants  in  the  tank  and  do  a  water  change  and  apply  fertilisers  and  CO2  over  the  coming  days.

 Great  work  so  far.  However,  from  the  pics  it  loks  like  none  of  the  MH  are  pointing  towards  the  foreground.  It  loks  like  they  are  pointing  from  top  front  to  bottom  back.  How  are  you  planning  on  dealing  with  this  or  does  enough  light  spread  to  the  foreground  anyway  ?
