  1. Ive had lots of cuts and stabs. I don't know if you guys count it but when I was taking apart my 300 to reseal, I cut my index finger down to the bone. I was going to superglue it, but the wife said no, made me go to the urgent care. Turns out that was almost what they did anyways. The skin was so thick they kept bending the needle before they could get it through. In the end the trip was worth it, because my wife learned that even the pros will glue a wound shut
  2. Not that hinge specifically, but that style hinge is becoming quite common now and you can buy them at home depot. shouldn't be any big deal to use another similar one, since they are hidden inside
  3. Make the kids sit on the floor. big tank > kids comfort lol
  4. These are fantastic lights, I have 6 of them over my 300. and I agree that 4 would be sufficient. Id be buying these for over my frag tank if I didn't have like 10 other things im trying to buy right now. These also have no visible difference in light output loss on a 2 year old light vs brand new. (unlike china black boxes)
  5. That was just because you need a bigger tank!
  6. Thanks anyways guys! If any of you have small shops near by that you might be willing to inquire at for me i would appreciate it. Sent from my SM-G965U using Tapatalk
  7. Not sure, but it says they are found in shallow waters, and other areas that indicate warmer water Sent from my SM-G965U using Tapatalk
  8. So im trying to find one of these. Official name is Hermissenda crassicornis. They are supposedly plentiful all the way from Mexico through Alaska......and they eat hydroids. If anyone finds one has a lead please let me know!
  9. I will go if I can. We are being forced to work Saturdays and Sundays just about every weekend. I wasn't able to go the last trip, so I hope I can wiggle out of work
  10. Crap, no, sure didnt. Sent from my SM-G965U using Tapatalk
  11. Orrrrrr your favorite local hobbyist with a big ass tank But I think I would pick an octopus, or one of the big angels...specifically a queen, but I like most of them
  12. Yeah it seems your correct. they worded it oddly, making it seem like it was only an option if it was less than 30 days old. They clarified for me, and so with a $300 deposit they will ship a refurb and keep mine then subtract the cost from the deposit and return the rest. Sounds like i keep the refurb though Sent from my SM-G965U using Tapatalk
  13. @Muttley000 Thankyou anyways, Suki doesn't have any apex equipment hes stubborn about doing things the old fashioned way. Neptune actually just responded to me again but im not sure im reading what they wrote correctly. It sounds like they may (with a deposit) cross ship another unit to me, while I send mine to them. So now waiting on clarification.
  14. So I came home from work yesterday, went into my frag tank room to open the valve to refill my ato buckets, and the lights on that tank were off. I look down at the energy bar and find the light flashing. Panicked I ran back to my display tank and look underneath to check the status of the brain and its cycling through an entire rainbow of colors. I tried to unplug it and let it reboot, with the same result. So I contacted Neptune and asked about it, they got back to me this morning and said to try a 12v powersupply with the energy bars unhooked, if it did the same I would have to send it in to them for diagnostics. Of course with my luck, after scavenging for 2 hours for a 12v 500ma + power supply that would work, the apex still did not. Basically my apex is trying to boot up, faults and starts the process over infinitely. so my tanks are currently running on minimal circulation and no lights for the frag tank, no ato for either tank. Does anyone have experience with a similar issue? Has anyone had to send their apex in for service? If so what was their turn around time? Ive adapted enough over to Neptune equipment that im sort of stuck limping things right now and im not sure it can handle a long wait
