    Hmm, looks like no update for my phone yet...

    Hmm, I'm on Android. It looks like there is an update this morning, perhaps something changed... The update is not showing on my phone yet though.

    I use a password manager, so I'm certain that it's the correct password. 😁

    Broken again, as of yesterday afternoon/evening. Same symptoms.
  6. Chaeto Reactors compared to Algae Scrubbers

    They already said it wouldn't be that type of comparison, but a write up on the concepts of each.
  7. MP10 wet side not staying put!

    As others have mentioned, this is designed for smaller tanks, and you probably wouldn't be that happy with it in your tank anyhow. This is a little different than the magnets in your pumps. Those just hold the pump in place, on the mp10 it has to hold it in place and spin the prop through the tank wall. Sent from my LG-H871 using Tapatalk
  8. MP10 wet side not staying put!

    I have an extra mp40 after my tank transfer if you're looking. I will be looking for an mp10 in the next month or so too, if you want to work something out. Sent from my LG-H871 using Tapatalk
  9. Chaeto Reactors compared to Algae Scrubbers

    Seems doubtful, based on the current rate of progress here... Sent from my LG-H871 using Tapatalk
  10. Heater broke, tank crashed

    For whatever reason those neotherm heaters require a lot more power per gallon than the jagers though. 300W neotherm is rated for 75g max (and is basically 2 150W heaters put together). 300W Jager is rated for 264g max. Assuming these are both accurate, you would need 3 neotherms to even come close, which would run you $420 instead of $30... They seem nice, but hard to justify.
  11. Heater broke, tank crashed

    They do require a controller in addition to the heater, which adds to the cost a bit. Still nice not to have glass tubes in the tank, especially as the only barrier between the electricity and the water. Sent from my LG-H871 using Tapatalk
  12. Buying a new house, need advice for moving tanks.

    I have to bow out of helping you. Hurt my back earlier this week, and can't really lift anything... Good luck! It will be worth it in the end. Sent from my LG-H871 using Tapatalk
  13. October 14th Frag Fest Trades

    I appreciate any tank donations for sure (except xenia/GSP)!
  14. October 14th Frag Fest Trades

    I like this one quite a bit. How much?
  15. October 14th Frag Fest Trades

    I'd love to trade, but my tank is new and bare, so I don't really have anything to offer... Sent from my LG-H871 using Tapatalk
  16. Whenever. I am usually up early.
  17. I'd love to help out, but I hurt my back a couple days ago and still healing. If you have something that could be done with limited range of motion and no real lifting, I could help.
  18. Getting out of the hobby

    Says Keizer on his profile page...
  19. Heater broke, tank crashed

    If you had a detector that would hook into an APEX breakout box, I think that would satisfy many people (just 2 bare wires, needs to close the circuit when tripped).
  20. Free Vertex Controller Upgrade

    Are you sure they don't? It seems doubtful that they literally wrote an OS for their controllers. Would be nice if it was a little more open though. Sent from my LG-H871 using Tapatalk
  21. Free Vertex Controller Upgrade

    I think this part is not a huge deal. There are still people using android phones that are 2+ versions behind. It's easy to target those platforms, and the tools will keep you within the frameworks that work on that version. There would be no huge reason to constantly upgrade.
  22. Free Vertex Controller Upgrade

    There is a pretty good effort going on to build a raspberry pi based controller. I think the biggest issue is that designing probes to be accurate and not interfere with each other is somewhat complicated and expensive. This is the biggest thing that APEX has going for it, IMO. I do wish I could use much more complex logic on the apex, but I can generally do whatever I need to do. The real downside is that you can only use pretty rudimentary 3rd party hardware (no analog signal, just an on/off from the breakout box).
  23. Free Vertex Controller Upgrade

    Weird logic...

    Put me on the list too!
