    Flashlight AND magnifying glass! If I need to get up close and want to have use of both hands, I have a flood light that I can position just so!

    Yep, thats what I do also. I keep a red LED flashlight by my reef tank so I can look around. Amazing what you see at night. Sometimes, in the late summer, I see bio-luminescent algae or dinoflaggelates or something that glows an eery blue...it glows more if you disturb the substrate.
    And yes, I do look at the plants in the indoor greenhouse at night. I am contemplating putting one of my old flourescent reef tank lights in there so I wouldn't need a flashlight.

    I'm in the habit of checking in on them 2-3 times a day, at the lab, with my trusty maginifying glass.

    I usually don't get out of work until midnight and atleast once a week I stop by the greenhouse after work. And yes I have used a flashlight. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_n_32.gif[/img]

    Guilty. I prefer looking at them with my UV light though, it's pretty darn neat to see how the colours and patterns are so different!

    Look at 'em shoot I took this picture at night. Kinda a cool effect I think. In the summer months I have to do most the work on them at night as water will last longer overnight, and it's cooler a more enjoyable. Also alot of my flowers are in prime pollinating mode at night, so I'll go out armed with a few paint brushes. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]

    Great picture, Zak. You guys always catch your cp's "in the act."

    Tell me, saltwater folks...is it any easier to maintain a saltwater tank today than say, 20 years ago? I've always wanted one...but it always seemed like way too much work. AprilH
