    Great. My 60 rimless holding my corals has been acting funking lately. Finally put my hand in it after a few days, felt hot as hell, and the temp is 84. The heater was set at 75 after a few days ago I felt it was hot. When I felt the heater just now, it was actively working despite the tank being 84 degrees. Hope the toll on my corals isn't too much. Switched the heater out for a spare that I have.

    My large build will have four heaters designed to hold 25% of the load each to avoid this problem. I'm not losing a butt ton of corals over some inexpensive heaters (I have always used eheim jagers and never had a problem before right now) and outlet space.

    I use these cheap thermometers to cross check heater and controller temp.

    I have historically used a lab grade thermometer to measure temperature. I got a Hanna ph checker at the Christmas party, and come to find out, the ph measuring part is useless. However, the built-in thermometer is spot in with laboratory grade equipment, so I have that digital read. It's bad when you put your hand in the tank and think the water is too hot to swim in though. Either way, I will have the four heaters, in addition to a nice digital readout that gives me live time feeds in the future. I have a really nice Jason fox papa Smurf frag, and a very nicely encrusted blue Oregon tort shedding skin right now. Just those two frags set me back $100. Not good.

    On a more positive note, I don't want to spoil the layout just yet, but I picked up two 48x12x12 tanks today from urban aquatics. They're from David's old shop but are in great condition. The design that I have planned should be very nice. They're going to be on semi-floating shelves, so they should have a real clean look.

    Nice! You can create something fun with two 4ft tanks.

    I should have followed d2mini's advice and just paid someone to do the drywall. I'm realizing how out of shape I am. My chest and shoulders are getting rocked from the sanding!
