  1. I'm sure I'll rough a bunch if stuff up. Itll grow back. Hopefully. Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk
  2. It's made by inovative marine. I had used it as a skimmer stand on my last set up. It has adjustable feet. Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk

    Coral QT Tank?

    I'd like to set one up on my future build, but only if I can set up tied into my display. I'm still working out some details. My plan is to have my waste water from my auto water change dump into the coral qt. Then the extra water will overflow out of the qt tank. In order to do this I need to keep qt tank higher than the drain line. Right now the highest point on the line is about 57-58 inches. Once I get a sink installed it will be lower. I do not think I will be able to place the qt in the stand, but should have room in the closet. I'll still need lighting, flow, heater, but the parameters will taken care of by the water change. No extra testing needed. Just keep the display inline. Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk
  11. I'm in the planning process of a tank upgrade. I'm looking to upgrade sometime between May and August. I have time to work on the fish room. I'm looking for feedback others on things theys fid right what they would have done different. The room is roughly 9' x 11' with a 48" x 26" closet. The one thing I feel like I am missing most is a sink/ drain. When doing maintenance or cutting frags I'm constantly walking out of the room. My water change system pumps it through the wall but that only takes care of the water being pumped out of the sump. Any buckets or anything else I need to carry to the bathroom. I should be able to get a small sink in the closet. It shares the same wall as a half bath. It has a sink and toilet on same shared wall. I'll have to redo my water store vertically to fit the sink. I found 65 gallon reservoir that I should be able to stack that are 23" diameter, but will just run with the brutes for now. Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk

  13. The reasons normally given are redundancy and less wear on your Eb8. Especially when using outlet 4 or 8 4 and 8 use relay switch outlets. The click on and off and will eventually fail. Heater controllers will also eventually fail. When using a controller on your apex it is better have the heater controller to switch on and off and use the apex as the fail safe. It's cheaper to replace the heater controller than the eb8. As far as redundancy goes my heater saved me from my own stupidity. Had I had just the apex I would have fried my tank. I use enhiem heaters. While doing maintenance on my tank I moved my temp probe and never put it back in the water. It called for the heater on all night, but the heaters internal controller shut it off at around 82. At some point I would like to upgrade my heater run it through a controller( not just internal) into the apex and have the apex as a fail safe like mentioned above. Im not able to dial in the enhiem enough to do this. Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk
  14. Living out of a stock tank still. I did get a quote back last night for a tank. Still working out some details with that. Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk
  15. I've seen videos of people controlling apex through Alexa. Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk
