  1. Hi all Just recently found this forum. Lots of good info here. My wife and I live up north of Seattle in Lynnwood. She is really the hobbyist in the family. After years of wanting to get going in saltwater she finally took the plunge. Now after 3 years we have several tanks set up - this hobby has a way of growing faster than Asterina starfish! We have a 90 gal reef tank with several fish and corals, a smaller 50 gal reef tank with fish and corals and a nano tank that currently is inhabited by a school of baby clowns - most of which are on their way to a local fish store this weeken

  3. I get bored of my corals after a few months. There really should be a subscription based coral rental service you keep them for a few months and then you return them and get new ones.

  6. I got this piece from @Gumbya few months ago and had to share how cool it is! I have it under a lot of blues (radions + T5) and it's developed orange-y polyps with the branches going from pink to dark magenta to bright blue He'll calling it Jimbo Mojo and you should definitely hit him up for a piece!

  7. I second these comments. Trident is a game changer for me. In fairness, I COULD test chemicals at least once a day... And I acknowledge I DONT. I just accept I don't fixate that much on it.

  8. The most common cause of salinity probe problems is air bubbles trapped inside the tube. I've had great success with my salinity probe by mounting it upside down so air bubbles just float up and out of the tube without being trapped. I also calibrate the probe upside down by placing the calibration solution and probe tip inside a probe storage bottle, then inverting it: https://www.bulkreefsupply.com/brs-ph-orp-probe-tip-soaker-bottle.html When using the John Guest fittings, did you cut off the tip of the DOS fitting conical section? If not, it obstructs the push-connect f

  10. I've been an Apex user since early 2018, and a Trident owner since the initial launch day. I've had great success with my entire Apex setup, including the Trident. If you're not aware, I'm the resident Apex guru and published many articles on Apex programming and usage: https://www.reef2reef.com/ams/authors/suncrestreef.93940/ I also have a detailed write-up of my Trident experience including Trident Controlled Dosing: https://www.reef2reef.com/threads/trident-hands-on.596716/ In my opinion, most of the negative reviews are due to user error or misunderstanding how to properl

  12. Now that I've gotten the Apex programming down, I was able to throttle back the speeds - and the sand is back in the right places.

  14. So I went through a long process this year with finding a tank and finally decided on the one I was looking at in the first place before I saw any dropoffs. Received the 112 lagoon 2 weeks ago and they rolled it right into my garage for me which was perfect because I had people scheduled to come help move it in because they say they won’t do that but no need! On the same pallet was my 20 gallon drop off tank and they both arrived in perfect condition. 20 gallon drop off: I had a 25 gallon lagoon set up in my living room area and decided that this tank could replace it for the time be

  16. This is actually quite simple using OSC with different leading/trailing delays: Scenario 1: MP40/MP60 pair 1: OSC 005:00/005:00/000:00 Then ON MP40/MP60 pair 2: OSC 000:00/005:00/005:00 Then ON Scenario 2: MP40/MP60 pair 1: OSC 007:00/005:00/000:00 Then ON MP40/MP60 pair 2: OSC 000:00/005:00/007:00 Then ON

  19. I gave Katrina a call last week and the best option seemed to be take the tank down and rehome the fish. The location she had a spot to have the tank was right next to their internet connection and was giving them issues. I have the tank cleaned up and ready for next use The 2 clowns are living it up in their new digs The tank could be stored here at my shop or an officer/BOD could get it if they wish

  24. Haha I suppose it’s all relative. My tank in general is pretty quiet by most standards. Also, when comparing it to other dosers like a DP4 or something that make basically no noise, it’s kind of startling how loud they are. I do accept it as it is going to be overall more accurate with the stepper motor than the little DC motors the cheaper dosers use, however, steppers are capable of running a lot quieter by varying the voltages (as you are probably familiar with). Trident makes its weird little R2D2/Printer/Scanner noises. Not super loud but it is something you get use to. Honest

  25. I’ve had my apex for about a year now. My two main complaints are: 1. Salinity Probe - these are a joke and mine only lasted a year before being unable to calibrate. At $125 per probe...I am no longer using that functionality. I have an ancient pinpoint salinity meter/probe that still works perfect and is right on the money in the calibration fluid. I attempted to buy a used salinity probe from another member and had the same issue. Seems that very few manage to get them and keep them running long term. I’m hopeful they come out with a more reliable probe in the future but honestly

  30. Success (using new virtual outlets)! A. Yes, the OSC command is working overall. The original OSC ... Then ON worked fine. (at 100% of sand moving MP strength). I confirm the oscillation with a flashlight. B. New Virtual Outlet + Profile programming works! MPvOSC_front: OSC 000:00/005:00/007:00 Then ON MPvOSC_back: OSC 007:00/005:00/000:00 Then ON MP60_Front & MP40_Front: Fallback OFF Set OFF If Output MPvOSC_front = ON Then MP-Front-Pr If FeedB 000 Then OFF MP60_Back & MP40_Back: Fallback OFF Set OFF If Output MPvOSC_back

  31. That seems about right, but I dunno! I run the 20s on an 8' frag tank but they are like 5 years old plus. On the 240 cube, I run a pair of 20s also, but also very old. They might be better / stronger these days!

  44. And ten days later, The tank is Full, correct salinity, has gravel, and Connected To the Main System. We are back to One Biological Loop! Water, Salt, Gravel, and Flow! Proof of Flow First Salt Multiple days of running RO John's Mixing Station Design sure made it easer to pump RO into tank, and eventually final salt water to top it up.

  45. Any reason you only want single polyps? Just for price reason? I have the following you can just have if you want: Mohawks pink and golds (Pandoras) - at least that’s what I think they are mind blowing palys they aren’t gonna be single polyps...but that’s usually a good thing haha
