    John, i really like your sanke, the body on it is what i really like. This is 1 of the top 3 in the group imo. I hope you keep yours in the intex for the GO, it will give me some comparison since I'll keep mine in my qt during the whole GO.

    Thanks Ryan...That's the plan for now. I don't think I'll be moving it to the main pond this year.

    Just added some of the lighting to the QT. I'm not sure if I will add more in the future, but I added two 4' full spectrum 6500k fluorescent grow lights and placed them about 12" above the water line.

    I apologize in advance for the lighting....there was a ridiculous glare so I had to go to the less lighted side of the tank for the video.....

    It's been pretty steady at 74 degrees. I haven't seen much fluctuation at all.
