So I recently set up a maxspect gyre XF250 which came with controller for my 180, question is does anyone know if the controller would work on an XF230 as well? I know it can control 2 units but I’m unaware of there are any difference with the 230 and 250’s. Reason I’m wondering is because even with the 250 I’ve noticed a couple areas that aren’t getting much flow and started noticing cyano growth.
I can't decide, so I need your help.
Maxspect Gyre XF 250 with controller and second pump $500
Neptune System Apex WAVs with 1Link $500
This would be for a SPS heavy mixed reef tank, 120 gallons.
Circulation, appearance, control? Is the second pump really needed?
I am babysitting allot of coral. As a result, keeping allot closer eye on the tank.
The calcium reactor feed pump stopped pumping any amount of volume, and dkh dropped.
After troubleshooting I could see the feed pump was barely a trickle.
Fired up the APEX flow monitor. It is not rated for CR low flow rate, but it seems to work. Holding steady and keeps a history! Pretty cool way to monitor that cricital calcium reactor variable, flow... I have no alarms setup for it yet but if reliable definitely will...
Selling the following. All is in good working condition.
1. Reeflo Dart/Snapper hybrid. Has both impellers $75.
2. Eheim heaters. I have (4) 250w. $10 each, or all 4 for $35.
3. Lumenmax Elite 250w MH fixtures. HQI. I have (2). One has a broken socket, but otherwise good. Both are free of rust and in great condition. I also have at least 6 bulbs with about 6 months of use. Also have the cords. $100 for all of it.
