Not sure now if I'm drooling over the project or the pasties, scones with clotted cream and Jam...

I think its probably the food... I'm just a little jealous of the project..!!!!

Bit of progress today.
Things are started to come together now...Finally
Racks are in and bolted down and have fitted the 25mm Polystyrene.
added extra plastic trunking and all the waterproof connection boxes can be seen,These are ip65 rated 100x100x50mm Gewiss boxes,All wires enter and exit via waterproof glands.
All boxes can take up to 6/8 connections,2 tanks share each box,smaller tanks have 1 box for 4 tanks









And i have connected the heaters,Need to shorten the wires,seemed to work ok,Was quite warm in there at 28 degrees.Heaters are 2 x4ft greenhouse heaters,each one is 240w
Polystyrene on the floor is 50mm

quick update.

Plastic end caps added to the stand legs.



I have added some 60mm wide pieces of galvanised steel,under the polystyrene,this is to stick the led lights to.This is only on the plec rack.





Brackets added to the non plec racks.these bolt on and hold the lights for the top tanks.
Will be adding a strip of stainless to bolt the link lights on to.
