The online torch craze (I don't know how every torch manages to have a name) had pretty much raised ALL euphyllia prices, no matter how run-of-the-mill they might be.  As more and more indo torches are coming in, you'd think the pricing will come down, but nope, it stays sky high.  sigh.  

 

 

ngl. this is one thing i hate about this hobby.

someones SPS looks a little different than another and boom it has some lame name and price goes up.

Man, I cannot for the life of me choose between this one in the EXT or the 50 Lagoon EXT?!?!?!  Love the look of this one for sure.  Looking forward to watching your mature!

I love the dimensions of the 75ext, I technically ordered that one, but an INT ended up at my door.

It really is a tossup between the two. I nearly got the 50.

I am incredibly disappointed with the GHL Profilux4. The set up guides are horrible, the user interface is borderline impossible to understand, it’s impossible to get help anywhere, there’s no resource guides basically except for YouTube videos that rarely are relevant to your scenario, and overall I think it’s drastically overpriced for what it is. If you really want to controller don’t even consider getting a GHL. 
 

expect a classified ad soon. 

 

Past Roger, yer dumb.

 

Basically I was combining two functions when I didn't need to. So it basically doubled the programming needed and making it almost impossible to work.

I stripped all the code broke it down to do what I needed at the minimum and it works perfectly.

 

I'm annoyed at how easy it is to mess this thing up and the lack of simple presets, but if you keep it simple, it actually works just fine.

Alk: 8.5

ca: 470

mg: 1480

sg: 1.026

temp: 78.8 

 

dosing all for reef, so that’s the big three all in one. Curious on your opinions on those numbers. 
TM pro salt mixes way lower than that so I correct after it mixes.

these look pretty good, the flesh looks a little tight on them, hopefully they puffed up a bit since.

Anyone know of white macro algae reactor that does not have an attached pump to it? Planning on using my manifold for the supply.

Tunze, but it's black and purple.  I like it so far.

 

Pax Bellum is white

You can buy a Tunze Eco Chic light

 

And just make your own on the cheap

 

Use a TLF Phosban 550 reactor

 

Get white stick on vinyl from Amazon

 

Any clear reactor, really

 

You can even put white sticky vinyl on the Tunze, if you don't like the purple and black.  It doesn't look as bad as it looks, really. It comes with a weak 200 gph pump, and about $50 worth of silicone tubing

ya boy got the coronavirus. This week has been rough in two ways:

1. I feel like trash

2. I've spent too much money being home all day.

 

anyways, pics.

I'll grab a FTS when I'm not coughing like mad.

 

recent additions to the dosing regimen:

sponge power

brightwell AA (porobably gonna drop acropower, doesn't seem to be doing much for me, and at it's price point that's not gonna fly.

bit of an algae bloom at the moment, likely from over feeding since it looked so sterile for so long. I hooked up a carbon/gfo reactor to the manifold and ordered a clean up crew.

 

I'm in dire need of LPS (torches, hammer, bubble, goni) but oh my god why tf are they so expensive now. $350 for a 2 headed torch? when did the LPS price jump?

of any one has any they'd be willing to sell/ship me, I'd be very grateful. cause i'm not about to spend $350 on a torch that would have been worth $50 a few years ago.

algae seems to be slowly receding thanks to a new CUC, GFO, and some manual labor.

 

Ordered more from top shelf aquatics too. (TSA Sabertooth Mille, Paletta Pink tip, TSA candle light stag, TSA bali blue slimer). I'm also running TSA's radion schedule and it's very very very  blue.

Just put an order in at LA for a indo torch, ORA red goni, and ORA skyline granulosa).

 

Pics tonight, if I'm motivated enough lol
