Thank you! The system does get direct sunlight mornings. Depending on time of year it varies from about 1/2 hour to 2 hours. Primary lighting though is three custom ~250 watt LED fixtures mounted in the underside of the upper level balcony. Using °16 optics PAR at the water surface is 400 to 500 PAR.

Wow, that is awesome! Love that it’s not over stocked with fish or coral.

Thank you! Yeah, I'm kinda hesitant to really fill out a system. couple of the things I realized a long time ago was the heavier stocked a system is with corals and fish the faster it's likely to crash when there's a loss of power, AC or equipment failure. (It's pretty much a given in central Texas storms will take down part of the power grid somewhere every year and it can last days.) And adding fish is always a disruption to the social structure, add in changes in behavior as fish become sexually mature (which can take years) and the greater the density the greater the likelyhood of personality issues developing.
