The tank is setup, has some small corals including a star polyp living in  the tank that came with the rock,
and is doing good. So far so good. It has had the LEDs for 2 weeks now and counting. Ready to start
testing some thing soon. Pictures attached of tank with only LED's and then tank with only 2 25 watt
flourescents which I use for white light.

The tank is set up and is magnificent. The soft corals have shown hardy growth from fragments to larger
colonies in as little as two months, I have a large anemone that has been thriving under the light, being
predominantly photosynthetic, and there are no grotesque algal blooms in my tank. I have a nice number
of fish in my system, and everything is great. Corraline algae has proven to spread under the lights, with
the walls showing signs over covering as well as ceramic propagation plugs changing from white to a deep
purple.  I am trying something new today by adding my first piece of SPS coral to the mix. My tanks
parameters are great and it should really test if these lights can keep acropora species alive.

My teachers are very pleased with the results so far when I showed them the pictures. Also, the new SPS
tri -color acropora is doing fine, with its polyps fully extended as well as showing nice color. My teachers
and I were thinking about trying to take this a little further and start a small open top tank with only sand for
a more controlled experiment with coral, filters, and the LED lights. Sand may not even be used, but a thin
layer would mean I would have to change less water in the tank. However, the school lacks do to the
budget just being slashed in half and the economy, so they could not fund to start up such a tank. I may be
able to find some older parts, but it would still be difficult. Also, if I were to do this, I would probably need
more lights, since my tank right now is depending on them and they can't be removed. In this tank I would
most likely test a variety of SPS corals and maybe even try out a few clams, growing them out and fraging
them. I am not sure how well the SPS would do, but my acorpora seems very healthy, but it has only been
two days in my tank; only time will tell. The main thing I want to test is that the SPS corals do not bleach
under the LED light, which is the main problem with other LED products such as the Solaris. I showed
pictures to my local fish store and they are interested in the lights as well, consuming very little power, but
still keeping corals alive.

The SPS is taking well to the new system and is still alive, which is good. The thing I want to do is start
something at school. I want to start something really new and exciting for our fairly new marine biology
section with these lights. I want more people to see these rather than me at my home. My goal for this
experiment would not only be to test these lights, but hopefully create an environment that would supply
more and be a lasting reef for other students to gain an appreciation for marine life. This is difficult when
all you have as a visual is a algae grown tank and mud for sand in your class room! Reefs are important,
and through their display I want to get people not only aware of this delicate ecosystem, but an
appreciation for marine life which could lead to more experiments dealing with other related things.

Here is the tank when it first was set up 2 months ago, a picture of the green LTA with flash (anything with
flash gets rid of purple coloring), and a pair of blue mushrooms which split when added to the tank.
