So Illuminating!

The theme of the day is lights.

But first, a tip: if you would like your already-high-profile project to become even more high profile, have it get stuck in a loop where it sends a few hundred people email every thirty minutes. That'll do it.

Anyhow Jeff and I (and by that, I mean Jeff) finally finished putting everything together for my reef tank LED lighting. I just switched the canopy in for the first time a few minutes ago, and it is sweet! The greens of the coral really pop out now. I'm hoping that everything will grow better. I'm also hoping I don't burn the coral before it acclimates, because even with all the LEDs turned down almost all the way, it still looks brighter to me than it did with the fluorescent lights.

Pictures will have to wait until this weekend when I will have a chance to clean the glass, but take my word for it -- it looks awesome!

Even if all the coral dies, you'll have a pretty cool, expensive, and artsy room light.

Well, yes, but I'd rather have the coral. On the other hand, I would never have to change the bulb in the kitchen light again...
