Really interested to hear your impressions on the trident and if you feel it's worth the price overall.

Right now.... it seems very cool. Results match my Hanna checker. It is $40 for 2 months of reagent, testing 4 times per day. Lets say it takes me 7 minutes to manually test Alk/Ca/Mg. Even if we compare at testing once per day.... thats 7 hours of manual testing in 2 months.  At $40, its a no brainer! (Assuming ones time is worth more than $6 an hour) 

 

(Not to mention the increased stability via active dosing adjustment)

Seems so bad ass. Could really be a game changer.. I'm wondering how well it will hold up.. I do a lot of work with HIGH dollar automation for testing water and in my experience all of said instruments become maintenance whores and the companies go back to having operators hand test their water..

 

Hope it works out!!! Would love to have one of them if they can hold up..

Soooooo a few updates:

 

Trident is awesome. Results match Hanna checker 100%, and now it’s adjusting the dose (up to 15% adjustment from my set point) to maintain what I want. 

 

Added a Yellow SCOPA Tang. Not a yellow tang- a scopa. 

 

There was a bit of minor aggression at the beginning, so I put up a mirror. But now everyone is getting along 🙂

The tank is looking nice.  Quite mature for how young it is.  The fish look great too.  Good job, and yay Live Aquaria.

most of the frags don't even look like frags any more!!  This tank is moving along great, can't wait to see it in 4-6 months.  

 

oh and the fish are nice too 😛

Correct. Well I did lose a mandarin, I think. Or at least I haven’t seen it in a while. But all the fish from LiveAquaria Divers Den have been excellent.

Just ordered this from LiveAquaria. The value you get for $150 is insane; free shipping too. I’m such a fan of getting 6” colonies for the same price as a 1/2” stub.

I already have a Sohol Tang here, and you definitely can’t get two. Way too aggressive! But thanks 🙂

Nice score!  I love browsing on DD, still haven't made any purchase from them yet, but getting close.  Altho, I could go for a special @HarryPotter's frag pack soon (if available)!

Everything going excellent! Did coralline scraping today so I figured I would snap a photo for followers. Apex trident has been awesome too. Super nice.

I know, seems like a waste, doesn't it.  I must pour down the drain more a quart of phyto each week.
