    Great tank and cool video as well....

    Tank turnover......baffled

    Looks good..... as suggested above drop some food pellets in and you will get a better idea of the flow rate. Also when your water level drops due to evaporation the flow rate over the weirs will be more obvious.

    Back at it... RSR 170

    I was never a controller fan but enjoying learning the ins and outs of mine as well.... still trying to figure out a layout for my control panel seems to be the trickiest part.

    Back at it... RSR 170

    Running Apex package... the problem I had is my resevoir (when full) would create a siphon. When I first set it up I used the anti siphon fitting they provided and the standard programming. The anti siphon fitting reduced the pump input so drastically that the standard 5:00 minutes on pump mode was not enough to keep up with my evaporation over a day. Changed my ato input into tank so there is no siphon, increased the 5:00 on to minutes to 15:00 minutes on and seems good to go. Working on setting up high/low resovoir notifications now.

    I’m getting my Apex ATO rolling now. Had some issues getting the programming dialed but seems to be working well after a few weeks of tweeking the programming and set-up. I like it but was not “plug and play” as some say. We’ll see how it performs long term.

    Time to part with tank

    If you end up parting out I would be interested in the carpet..... Goodluck with the sale!

    getting clown to eat..

    As said above live black worms... world of Wet Pets in Beaverton used to carry but I have not been there in some time. They also carry live brine shrimp. Mix the live in with frozen to get his attention.

    What do you do?

    I’m am a precast concrete project consultant with a focus on railway and bridge structures. If you need a bridge I can help you out. Otherwise I’m probably of not much use. I can share my random mistakes that I’ve made over the years reefing with hopes that they are not repeated by others.......

    Radion SPS AB+

    Running on my g4 but setup is only 3 months old and just threw first spa frags in last week. So no constructive input from me.....

    280g Barrel of monkeys build

    This is a great set-up. Having remote sump is awesome. Love the skimmer. This will be fun to follow.

    Red Sea Reefer Overflow Valves

    Did it always fluctuate or did it get worse over time? I have had my reefer running about 4 weeks now but have not had to adjust since I set it up. The mod looks great!

    WTB 4x2x2 Stand

    Upscales has a nice used stand/canopy for 4x2.....
  13. This is a great set-up..... I thought hard about buying this tank at Upscales but just would not fit the space in my home. Can’t wait to see what you do with it.

    Live Brine Shrimp

    I would check World of Wet Pets in Beaverton. Have not been there in a few months but usually carry live brine.
