Order Placed! Trident NP coming


Recommended Posts

Release date was quoted as May 30th.  I was thinking it could be midnight +1min of May 29th.  And then decided to check BRS at midnight (EAST COAST) +1min.  ...  Yup.  Became available last night and got my order placed.  Whoot whoot.

Looks like it's out of stock this morning.

I’ll be curious to see your results.

Me too.   I'm convinced I don't have my N & P additions setup right - because I'm no longer willing to test NO3&PO4 daily.  (I tested daily for ~4months in late 2021)

I was hovering over it while it was in stock, but I requested one locally and have my fingers crossed they get their allotment so I can keep it local.

 

if not I may offer to tank sit for you evoer the weekend, just send me your address!

I would have LOVED to get mine local.   In the past, I've made a specific point of buying MAP price items local... because there's absolutely no diff in price, just better local support.    In this case, I didn't reach out to check... And I Really want to turn this machine on and get NP readings.

It's funny how far out of the loop I have become.  After years of being the defacto Neptune expert, I didn't even know this product was in the making since I'm no longer in the hobby.  I'm hoping Neptune has ramped up their documentation efforts instead of relying on independent reefers like me to create the needed in-depth documentation and tutorials for their products.

Did they say what a 6 mo refill will cost? 2 mo supply comes out to $1/test…so this is gonna cost $365/year to run instead of the $220 for standard trident which runs 4 tests a day for that price?

 

Seems like this hobby never stops going up in price…

No date nor price for 6mo reagent set.  I did your same math.  $/test.    It's a choice, clearly.

I may be incorrect, but I think they made it easier to change the interval on the NP, like thrice a week or something?  Still expensive, and this may be bad intel, but like all things, reef within your budget!

I have heard the same because they have a short shelf life.  I have also heard a 6mo kit will be coming eventually, so anyone's guess? 

 

Looks like his are good for 5 months, maybe they need to blow out the units they have been making for initial release and then can make more to bundle them into 6mo kits?  I imagine they have been ramping up for a while.
