  1. I wish, we used to go up to houghton lake every year. They sold the place we were going to, and havent had much luck finding a new spot this year Sent from my SM-N986U using Tapatalk

    Apex Display

    Well initially i had some issues running the app on android and it wasnt working right. Those seem to be fixed now, but mostly it just seems to be smoother running it through my browser

    No display here. Just my phone. I dont even use the app i prefer the web browser and i keep one tab open on it
  6. I use them sometimes. They are great to help polish the water up, but lately theyve clogged so fast i was changing them every couple days. So im back to no socks. I toss them in my fish rooms slop sink when theyre dirty till they dry. I used to run 2 wash cycles on my old top loader, once with bleach and 2nd one just water, but the new front loaders use so little water i run 3. Once inside out once normal (with bleach) and last is just plain water. I see no visual difference in my tank except any snails that pass through might survive without the socks Sent from my SM-N986U using Tapata
  7. Well i have 1 fish that is big enough and in another year or 2 ill have 2 big enough. If there were no other options i would, but i would likely go raiding the neighbor that calls the city on me about my boat first. Sent from my SM-N986U using Tapatalk

    Top 10 Zoa's

    i like to have a mix of contrasting bright colors when it comes to zoas, so some of my faves that i currently have in the tank are king midas zoas, armor of gods, bambams, wwc aoi's and my orange hornets
  9. Sorry forgot to check back in on this thread. @Muttley000 answered it perfectly. But ill add the single drain will be maxed in flow and be noisy doing it. I am not a fan of 1" drain lines on any size tank, but we do the best we can with what we have. Sent from my SM-N986U using Tapatalk

  11. Id run both the drain and return as drains, plumb the return over the back and run a danner mag drive for your pump. Those things last forever and are near bulletproof. Theyre quite affordable too
  12. @Joe what vendors are you referring to? I was looking for one not too long ago before i bought my copperband butterfly
  13. I will also add that i was burning through membranes relatively quickly by not flushing enough. I got an auto flush solenoid valve that i think is helping there as well
  14. Well for example, when i rebooted the tank i changed all cartridges and membrane in my 5 stage. I just changed the di resin for the 1st time after 9-10 months. I use color changing mixed bed, and can see as it exhausts. Prior to replacing them i was replacing di every month or so. And i change the sediment filter when i replace di, and change carbon blocks every other time. I will also add that the di resin from airwaterice consistantly lasts me way longer than any other resin
