  1. Two Hydra 52's. Great lights once you get them dialed in for your tank. I have the non HD's that are controlled through apex.
  2. Are you wanting sell the sump separately? Any pictures?

    Dosing ATI

    Thanks @Muttley000. That makes me feel better. I have a couple months left so I wanted to get a something lined up before I ran out. I'll have an extra channel on my dosing pump then. This is giving me some new ideas LOL.

    Dosing ATI

    I just mixed the last of the 3 part ATI I had. They have switched to a 2 part that is supposed to have everything in it. Anyone made the switch and have any comments good or bad?

    Fritz Salt

    I noticed it takes less. I will mix 15 gallons for my water changes. Takes 12 cups of RC and 10 cups of Fritz. I forget the exact alk number but i believe it was 9.8 and RC is always 12 plus. I like the lower alk number because its closer to what I normally keep my tank so less swing during water changes. Overall I'm happy with it.

    Looking for a sump. I'm setting up a 75 gallon tank. Something about 30-36 inches should do.
  7. I'm interested in the Maroons. Location?
  8. I agree with @Dr.Fraggenstien, fresh mixed RC is 11-12 in my experience as well and to have calcium and alk moving in opposite directions makes me wonder if you have a bad test kit. I switched to Hanna testers and found them very accurate and repeatable. I used to run a 28 gallon nano cube and I didn't dose and did water changes every 10-14 day and never had alk drop that low.

    Bristle worm growth is related to available food. My question is, did they grow that large in your system? And if so maybe you are over feeding?

    Yes but you have to deep fry them
  11. I've had two over the years and currently use one in a small tank that I don't have a controller set up on. BRS has a video where they tested temp control on several heaters and the cobalt was the best even beating out a non thermostatically control heater controlled by an Apex. The video is worth checking out. With that said heaters fail and I had a cobalt fail after about 2 years and it did fail in the off mode. IMO if you are using a controller like Apex it's not worth the money but if you don't have one I would spend the extra money. So what kind of tank are you planning? Don't be holding out on us LOL.
