Well, long time no update!  The coffee pot hasn’t really changed. Sadly Raymond the hermit passed a couple months ago. I just did a water change today and finally cleaned the glass.

Thank you!  I just skimmed back through the thread, and I definitely have let things slide.  I'm going to try to get things all cleaned up again.

If they question I'll just say I'm growing plants and hope they don't know what coral is :lol:

You should do a coffee pot pico and actually use the built in heating element!   I hope the journal helps in some way

Hm, that would be tricky I think. I'd have to learn some electrical stuff. I assume there's some sort of controller I could set to regulate the temperature.

I'm sure I'll learn a lot by the time I've read through all 15 pages!

If the heating element has some sort of timer to turn it off, you'd want to bypass that.  Then you want to use a temperature controller to control power to the element.  More than likely, you'd want to set it a little lower, as the element will continue to supply some heat after power is cut.

I’m a couple weeks I may be making a run to some reef stores with my mom. If so, I’ll probably pick up some sort of shrimp or crab for the pico

 Thanks, I hope to keep it running for many more years!  It’s certainly easy enough to take care of 😆
