Of course, the anemone commits suicide the night before my 3d printed mp10 guard is supposed to show up.

 

 

Le sigh.

I you can build one, I'd say build it yourself so you can program it the way you want it. I know how you IT guys are, you buy the Apex and bitch about how this should be different. 😄 Do it the way you want.

I ended up not buying the apex. It had to much wrong with it to justify the price tag.

 

However, with the rising cost of corals. And lack of new selections. Ive been debating switching to freshwater. With all my equipment and frags. I could easily set up a cichlid tank, or even mostly fund a planted tank.

Tank has been chugging along nicely. Despite my last post, I was over ruled. Lucy (age 4) does not want freshwater fishies. She wants to keep them till they grow old.

 

That means 14g water change today. Current parameters to follow shortly

Fiasco of a w/c:

 

didnt have the extra 10 minutes to test water parameters.

 

clown got stuck in the siphon tube (so i had to cut it out)

 

spilled atleast a gallon of dirty tank water on the floor

 

and the skimmer decided to foam to high holy hell.

 

But, the change is completed

Monticap has almost completely encrusted the 1.5" plug.
