  1. NEW Par Meter Booking Thread

    Can you add me on for the USB model please? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Do you need to do an ammonia test or does that show up on TDS? I haven't changed my di resin in a long time but my TDS meter on the unit still reads zero off the di. I even bought a little hand held TDS meter to check to make sure it was functioning correctly. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. Magnetic panels, that's a good idea! Why have hinged doors when you can pop the whole panel off?! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. Couple of dt shots

    Steve was nice enough to meet up with me last week and really hooked me up too. That mad mikes tricolor acro is insane! Steve certainly can grow some healthy and vibrant corals. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  6. Me and the fam had a real good time. Great food, hosts, conversation, and raffle items! Badxgillen's commentary is also awesome! You could get a job being an NBA color commentator! I sure do miss Mike Rice. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. Last of the equipment grab bag of all

    Sure! Yea, can't ever have enough spare pumps or heaters. Can really bail you out of a bind.
  8. Last of the equipment grab bag of all

    Hey Frank, Trevor here. I'll take these random pieces of aquarium greatness. I could use some extra pumps and heaters from time to time. I see some dosing tube holders and a corner frag rack in there too! I'll pick up when I grab the hydras. Sound good?
  9. Tapatalk status

    I had this same issue, but googled "PNWMAS Tapatalk" and it brought up a random thread. From there it let me follow the forum that was not visible by going straight to Tapatalk. Some kind of weird bat door!
  10. Seems like this is the cats meow of regulators, but definitely could use some input if anyone has experience with it. http://www.bulkreefsupply.com/carbondoser-electronic-co2-regulator-aquarium-plant-life.html?gclid=Cj0KCQjw--DLBRCNARIsAFIwR26AxYDRMJzFoqkUkTbYJOvR0eKbIIGR4xEELvTv6B1JUr5B5u219X4aAjQhEALw_wcB
  11. How about a Geo calcium reactor or a CarbonDoser electronic CO2 regulator.......?
  12. Cornbread Rainbow Infusion Zoa For Sale

    I made a visit to Steve's last month and boy was I happy when I left. His system is top notch and he's very generous with frags. You won't be disappointed! Plus, he's a great guy and very knowledgeable. I'm sure I'll be back soon!
  13. Tapatalk Issues?

    Yep, after the site went down last week, my Tapatalk wouldn't work either. Deleted the app and reloaded, now I can't find PNWMAS on there.
  14. Is dKH drop linear?

    Thanks everyone! This forum is great! I use Kent and this was my next variable to rule out! I'll switch to Fritz and Jeff stocks it at a good price at CC. I doubt I'll do a big water change, rather just switch with my normal water changes. So the effects will be slow. I'll report back if I have a major breakthrough. Thanks again! Trevor
  15. Is dKH drop linear?

    Nicely said Ken, that was exactly what I was getting at. I've just struggled to maintain high alkalinity and just settled for the 7-8 range. Corals seemed to be happy and growing, so just rolled with it. But I always wonder how folks keep it above 9 and thought I might have to crank up my dosing since the consumption rate was going up at higher alk levels. I keep my Mg in check and calcium balanced with the alk, but even so, levels always settle back and maintain in the 7-8 range. I once tried upping the dosing and plastered all of my equipment and rear overflow compartment of an AIO with precipitation. It was like chipping ice off your car! Don't want to repeat that! I'm getting close to hitting equilibrium with ESV Bionic in my new setup and may try to push it a bit, but will closely keep an eye on precipitation. My last tank was small and heavily stocked and the high pH of carbonate I think was pushing the precipitation. When I switched to good ole Arm and Hammer bicarbonate, the problem went away. The new tank has more stable pH and I'm dosing in small increments directly over the return nozzle, so this should do the trick. But I'm up to 60 ml/day, which seems high for a 50 gallon frag tank that is reasonably full. But if it's not precipitating out, must be getting sucked up by tank inhabitants!
