    Is this cyano?

    If you have a microscope - even a kid's version - you can spot the difference, and identify, very easily. It's also just fun to take a bit of sand and water and look at it - so many little moving bits/bacteria/etc. Really interesting stuff.

    Freshwater peeps?

    I’ve got a 200 Malawi hap/peacock tank and a 180 with a group of wild kitumba frontosa that I’m trying to get breeding.

    APEX - Fallback Question

    Very true - woke up this morning to a heartbeat notice because my modem went offline. Super handy to have. I don't think I could have a tank set up with an APEX. So spoiled.

    Where to buy Python type tubing?

    Yeah Python tubing is the best - don't know why but the other stuff you can buy is so stiff. Anyway - I have a lot of this tubing and I found that the difference in price isn't really that much. You'll probably save 15 buying regular tubing vs. just buying an extension for the python....which in the long run isn't that much to worry about if it's the better tubing.

    APEX - Fallback Question

    Hey thanks for the response. I also got some info from Neptune and it's interesting. I'm running the APEX Jr. They say that the outlets on the junior will fail if the circuit board fails. They don't go to 'FALLBACK' positions if the whole things dies. Their suggestion was to have any vital outlets running on the EB8, which will work regardless of what the brain is doing.
  7. I was working downstairs the other morning and suddenly all of my tank lights turned off. My apex was flashing yellow - and all of the modules had lost connection. I rebooted and things seem to be OK - but quick question. I understand how "Fallback" works - but that just if the modules lose connection to the brain. What happens if the brain just completely dies? Will the power blocks (EB4,EB8) turn into regular energy bars at that point? But set with your fallback options on each outlet? So if the APEX brain completely bites the dust, but you have heaters and pumps on "FALLBACK ON' will they continue to receive power? I'm heading out of town and I don't really care if my lights go off for a bit, but I just want to make sure that if the APEX goes on the fritz at least the pumps/heaters are going to function.

    LF: Apex PM1 and Auto Feeder

    Feeder has been found!
  9. Anybody got an extra Apex PM1 or auto feeder laying around? I need 'em. Thanks.
  10. Yeah just picked up a 25ft cord for like 8 bucks. Way better than the $30 they want for the apex brand. Thanks for help all.
  11. Whoa seriously? I thought they were something special. So any usb cable will work?? That’s great. Thanks all.
  12. Hey everyone - I'm looking for a few more feet of aquabus cable for an Apex. I could use a 9ft cable, a 15ft cable or a 30ft cable. Hit me up with what you got! Thanks.
  13. Bump for lower price: $270
  14. I'll give ti a bit more time to see if anybody needs the full unit then hit you up. Thanks. To that end - y'all shoot me an offer on it if the 350 is too high.
  15. I've been holding onto this thinking I'd start up another salt tank, but I just set up a new 180 fresh so there's no going back for me anytime soon. So - for sale: Spectrapure MaxPure 4-stage RODI. Booster Pump In-Line TDS meter All new filters in the unit. (RO filters have a few months on them) 4 Unopened filters (First stage and an unopened DI) Everything: $350. Pick up in NE Portland. I also have two unopened bags of salt I'll throw in - those Kent bags that come in a box. I'll also toss in a box of odds and ends.
