  1. Define "Pacific". That could range from cold waters in Alaska to warm waters in Baja. Even if you acclimate them, I can't imagine a species expecting 50 F water temps to survive in a 78 F aquarium.
  2. Nice setup, and great colors! I like your cabinet idea.
  3. Unfortunately the Trident water sample tube is only 5 feet long and cannot be extended. The length of the tube impacts testing results.
  4. I just recorded a video to show each of the DOS speeds so you can get an idea of the noise levels:
  5. One of my non-reefing friends pointed me to this: https://www.newsweek.com/sea-urchin-hats-saltwater-aquarium-cowboy-viking-top-hat-3d-printing-1500500
  6. 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

  8. Since you've made some significant Apex programming changes, don't forget to save a new backup of your configuration. Instructions here: https://www.reef2reef.com/threads/apex-users-public-service-announcement.622847/
  9. Or returns them infested with red bugs??? (guilty...)
  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
  11. Wow, it all seemed so simple when you first posted the question. I still have no idea why the OSC directly on the WXM outputs won't work properly, but glad to hear it works with the virtual outputs. Unfortunately I don't have a WXM or MP's to further test and investigate on my own.
  12. Yes, I've seen this error several times today. Usually I just reload the page and that works.
  13. Do you know for sure if the OSC commands are functioning at all, or are they just leaving the powerheads on at all times? You could try moving the OSC into a virtual output, then control the MPs by the virtual output state: [vFront] OSC 000:00/005:00/007:00 Then ON [vBack] OSC 007:00/005:00/000:00 Then ON [MP60_FRONT] Set OFF If Output vFront = ON Then MP-Constant [MP60_BACK] Set OFF If Output vBack = ON Then MP-Constant
  14. OK, I'm stumped. I'd recommend rebooting your Apex because something just doesn't seem right.
  15. This should NOT make any difference, but since the situation doesn't make sense, humor me... Change the graphical schedule to only run from 00:00 to 00:01. The OSC should always override the schedule, but that's the only possible reason I can think of for your issue.
