I have an amazon knockoff. It shoots 4k and was like 90 bucks. I can't afford a 500 gopro. The knock off ones are great. I was messing with time lapse mode and forgot to turn off. I went fishing and got a baby turtle on it underwater swimming around, go to review the footage and my 30 sec video ended up being a sec. I was so pissed lol. 

If you happen to catch sea turtles under water that will be so awesome and you'll have to post those. I'm living vicariously through you 😏

My cousin was in the service and got stationed there and never left. He is guaranteeing me a run in with sea turtles.. he sounds pretty dam confident in this lmaooooo

So got back from vacation and the tank didnt crash!! Huge bonus.. actually the tank even stayed clean and ato reservoir only burned through half of the water . Not bad for being gone 7 days. Skimmer didnt do much when I was gone, could have been adjusted a little .. that's the one complaint i have about this curve 5 bubble magnus,  it has to be adjusted once a week.. I only payed 100 bucks for it though so I cant complain . Here is a early morning dirty tank photo.   😉

Surprising It wasnt bad. I'm totally a little bitch when it comes to flying.. I hate it, but this flight was great. Helps when you leave maui airport though. Everyone is super nice and helpful. Way smaller than LAX🤣..

 

 

Just realized the tank had a couple hiccups.. I know my tank has been consuming more two part but didnt want to up the dosage right before trip. Alks been running at 9 and dropped to 8.1 over 7 days but I have almost all lps so life is good .

 

Oh and the damn fail safe for my heater took a shit too!! On inkbird controller the temperature readout had drifted about 4 degrees so caled it. No big deal right .. WRONG. It did it again and this time by 11 degrees so it thought the tank was way hot and killed power to the heaters.. luckly I have enough equipment to keep the water temp at about 73 degrees.. corals look better than ever though 🤣.

 

Guess it's time to upgrade to an apex. I just want something simple to control temp and monitor ph.  Oh and send notifications when either gets out of wack.

Yup no flying for me. It was probably 10 years ago the last time I flew. My inkbird shit the bed not too long ago. It was off about the same, I wish I knew about the replaceable probe one, but whatever..when this one dies I'll grab that one instead. I was surprised that everything was fine for a couple days at 68 degrees. They went on like nothing happened.

Just think Monday you'll be back in the work grind 😏 I'll bet you're super excited lol.

Yea I doubt its the probe ..the probe most likely a thermocouple literally it's two different wires soldered together at one end.. hard for that to fail and when they do they dont go off they fail to max scale .. 

 

Yea not super excited to go back to work but all is good there. My guys kicked ass for me and I even talked my pops out of retirement for a week to cover for the difficult stuff!!! Best part is his old ass actually made it to work 4/5 days.😂HAHA. He kept up on my invoicing too, so I will have minimal paperwork to do come Monday.. LIFE IS GOOD🤙😎

Well that was great of him to help out at least, good man 🙂. At least you won't walk into a shit show so that's a plus.

No shit?? Those are gosh damn pricey too. That was going to be the dream skimmer.. so I've been into the salty side for 15 plus years and just got back into the reefing side .. I've never had a good skimmer. Lol.. this one works awesome but I have to adjust it weekly .. so maybe not so awesome haha
