    Replacement cap Avast Swabbie skimmer neck cleaner

    I remember wandering around looking for Raspberry Pi places. I came to a Worker-Space in Tacoma, Washington called the FabLab, where you can rent time to build practically anything. CNC's for metal and wood, Industrial 3D-Printers 3.5 ft x 3.5 ft, smaller Makerbots, other tools to build stuff, such as a jigsaw T-Rex. The guy that worked there used to go to Goodwill's to find old TV frames to pull it out and build retro-framed monitors or displays with the Raspberry Pi. At the time, he was the top 10 submitters on Thingiverse. He said, go to the HackerSpace in Seattle called Metrix. I wandered up there and down in a basement of a Capitol Hill building. They designed some of the first 3D printers there and have circuit board etchers. They have vending machines of circuit boards and other random tech-items. It was chill and honestly, great/safe places for children to be. Edit: Changed links

    SPS changes reveal chemistry imbalance

    This is what I did before I moved and even after I moved, did it less, which works well. Dose: 1 - Calcium Chloride (CaCl2) : https://www.lesliespool.com/Leslies-Hardness-Plus-Pool-Chemical/Hardness-Plus.htm 2 - Sodium Carbonate (Na2CO3) : Soda Ash made from baking soda in a 450 degree oven until dry Just a certain weight into a 5 gallon container. I made sure the correct concentration was present by testing the old and new solutions. Did this every six months. 20% water change once a week, which after I moved, got cut back to every three weeks. Tried vinegar, ethanol, carbon etc. Felt it was easier to keep it simple. Amino's helped, but were expensive. Chemiclean when I saw cyano.

    The Redfield Ratio also has temperature, depth, and irradiance variance. Huge standard deviations, latitude, etc. Vinegar works, but then, you are adding Potassium Nitrate, which makes it more complicated. I think the process could be simpler.

    75-gallon-display-60-gallon-lagoon - 10% Off

    Had to move my flight. It's likely not going to go lower any time soon. I added all this up its $2435. Maybe I'm aquarium ill, but I think my previous price is negotiable. The rock says cured because there is Aptasia.
