    Calvin, is the width or the height of those tanks 90cm?
    You seem determined to get into the propogation thing full time, and I commend you for it.
    Is ur prop setup indoors or outdoors?
    Do you have a ca reactor?

    Nice dimensions. From an economical point of view I would consider using t5's instead of halides. But seeing you have them already, just be very careful with having the lights too low. (obviously amy cost savings should be filtered down to us, your future customers)

    With that amount of sps heading ur way, you should really consider getting a calcium reactor.
