  1. I like auto renewals. I know a couple people complained last time, but I think their complaints are unfounded. Everything is on auto these days and it's the most seamless way to do it. People should be capable of cancelling their own subscriptions. When I sign up for Pandora, do I complain to them when they take out my next payment even though I was "planning" on cancelling before the payment was due? Thanks for all the work, Chief!

  2. Man, you're a beast with that printer! Good work. Sent from my SM-G975U using Tapatalk
  3. Was it just me or was the guy making the video kind of obnoxious? I felt like he kept interrupting the guy and getting his own knowledge of the production out there whenever possible. I kept thinking, Hey man, that dude is the mastermind. Let him talk, not you. That's definitely a solid point. Although BRS sells their pumps for like $100, right? And those things seem to always be a go-to item. Dropping a little more flow to do everything these do doesn't seem that unreasonable if you're spending $100 on the BRS pumps.

  4. The new Ecotech Versa looks amazing. I think I'll look to get one to use with my calcium reactor. My only hesitation is overall sound. It's tough to gauge though because the phone is right next to pump. It doesn't seem too loud unless it's pumping high ml per minute. The software on this thing is impressive to say the least!

  5. Oh yeah. That thing is ripping! You definitely don't need it that high. Depending on your effluent rate, I'd be surprised if you need anything close to that. I'm certainly not one to get caught up in bubble rates or anything, but just throwing out that I've never seen a calcium reactor running so high you couldn't even count them.

  6. Apex aside, I would reduce the CO2 output rate so that it's closer to what you actually need. The fact that it's flipping on and off so much is evidence that your CO2 is set to a bubble rate that's too much. If you reduce your gas rate to something closer to what your reactor actually needs to keep a desired pH, you can naturally keep the pH you want. Then the Apex just serves as a guide from time to time. Basically, if the desired pH is a ball, make it more like a bowling bowl between bumpers, rather than a pong ball getting batted back and forth. Hope that analogy makes sense [emoji16][emoji16] Sent from my SM-G975U using Tapatalk
  7. Cuttlefish and Coral. 100%! Sent from my SM-G975U using Tapatalk
  8. Great to hear! @CuttleFishandCoral, when you putting in your first order?! Sent from my SM-G975U using Tapatalk
  9. You can also use baking soda to raise your alkalinity. Depending on your pH you may want to bake it first. Google and then read thoroughly, Randy Holmes-Farley Two Part dosing article. Any understanding of dosing key parameters should start there. Sent from my SM-G975U using Tapatalk
  10. Tim is a good guy that works for the same company as me. He's pretty new to the hobby, but his tank is coming along great. I know y'all get anemones floating around somewhere. Sent from my SM-G975U using Tapatalk
  11. Dang, that's crazy! Sorry to hear about that man. Best of luck as you get everything handled. Sent from my SM-G975U using Tapatalk
  12. That picture is about 8 months old, too. Although to be fair, by now I've probably sold off a third of it to Jeff. My work (where the tank is located) is out in NE Portland, on Airport Way. If you want to make it out there I could sell you some. Sent from my SM-G975U using Tapatalk
  13. Glad to see you going to battle. Horrible little things! Sent from my SM-G975U using Tapatalk
  14. Something like this?? Sent from my SM-G975U using Tapatalk
  15. Blue jaw trigger went for a jump the other morning. Luckily my wife was home and she heard it flopping around on the floor. She was able to grab it and rescue it. Unfortunately, for whatever reason, after she went to work that day, it jumped again... This time it was not rescued [emoji26] Crazy that it jumped twice in the same day.
