Once it's fully operational we might do a meeting/tour smile.gif
No plans on refitting the retail side of things in the short-mid term, although eventually it's on the cards (the time and money cost of a refit this size is pretty crazy...)

More than heating/cooling, the main savings will be in:
Pump power consumption - we have cut the power usage by around 5kw constant load by switching everything except the marine system to air driven
Maintainence wages - once fully set up there will be almost zero maitainence on over 300 tanks, which saves a lot
Catching wages - with single species per tank and no substrate or filters/airstones in the tanks to catch the net on, catching times for wholesale orders etc should be halved.
FIsh health/quality - Being able to increase the filtration immensely and have constant water changes will allow use to feed a lot heavier and maintain higher water quality

Cheers
Pacco
