Well Apex is installed... turned out clean.. I really love having this little shelf system to hide my wiring 😎... this unit isnt a new apex with wifi so I had to buy a wifi adapter from amazon.. should be here quick and then I can get it back on my network.. for now I programmed it with it plugged into my router, but unplugged it and installed it on the tank.. currently it's not doing anything but safeguarding my tank from over heating.. 😎

Yea the doors and hinges are real nice . the rest of the stand is IKEA shit.  They do add a nice leveling pad in the sump and where the tank sits so that's cool.. but overall your right the stand leaves a lot to be desired...

So I was talking trash about this im probe holder I had to buy.. well I got it and man it's awesome!! Love it.. seems nice quality and is small enough for what I needed.. 😊😎

 

 

Shrooms are looking good today too.. kinda weird these look like the same ones but one of them has split and made 7 babys on my rock in less than 2 months... kinda worried about them taking over.. luckly it's on a rock that is removable from the main structure 😅...

So I got this little strawberry shortcake acro frag on the top of my tank. Never had any luck with sps.. this one is alive but no polyp extension.   Got this little cross flow pump on the top right. Kinda hard to see but wonder if it's too much flow. I'm running it low under 50 percent and it's not angled directly at it ..

 

What ya think ? Too much flow or why no polyp extension??🤔

Maybe just new to the tank? Generally, you should be fine as long as you have nothing directly blasting at it. Probably just being a typical moody acro.  Watch in the evening dusk hours or early morning, they’re at their fluffiest at those times for me.

This question is pretty hard to judge without knowing the rest of your parameters. 

 

Alk, Ca, Mg, NO3, PO4 please. 

 

For reference, my Gyres run at 100%.

Params are where I like to keep them, besides the po4 . I dose so they stay pretty consistent...

 

Alk 8.4

Ca 420

Mag -- it swings a little bc I dont dose for it daily.. but I keep it 1300ish.  Drops to 1230 ish when I dont pay attention..

Nitrates- 3-5 

Po4- undetectable on my salfert kit.m wanting to try another brand soon..
