  1. I have a used RKL for sale. I am the second owner. I have been using the RKL in this condition with no problems. Asking 75$ shipped PayPal only. Please note below Photo 1: Everything included Photo 2: You can see the RKL display is cracked underneath the plastic. Does not affect function. Photo 3: The SL2 PH and Salinity ports are corroded from being over the previous owners sump. The temp and two switch ports still function 100%. Photo 4: The clip on the itemp temp probe is broken. The itemp probe still functions 100% when plugged in. Photo 5: The dual switch ato bracket and plugs that come with it. I had to cut the wire to get it out of my stand but rewire is extremely simple.

    Finally got the light and diy mesh top. I brought the tank back out of the closet yesterday and set it up. While it was broken down I cut and stained/sealed a 4x12x1/2" thick board and screwed it to the stand to mount the light to. I just dont like mounting on thin glass.
  3. With fans you're using alot more rodi water for topoff so there is cost there.. although not sure how comparable to ac cost. I run a portable 8000btu haier ac unit in 1000sqft and I havent noticed more than a 15$ a month increase.. I run it mostly 24/7 with it hooked up to a drain. If its 95 outside its 75 inside. The only other viable option would be a chiller. They sell Ice probe nano chillers that have good reviews and well as others of course depending on your need.
  4. Portable ac unit in the room is how I keep my tank cool. Never goes above 80. But I keep my reef at 76.8. Could be worth thinking about.

    Picked up a half inch sheet of wood for the door. Added magnets to it. It's been awhile since I've been in the hobby and I stupidly bought Florida crushed coral and put it in my salt water. Anyway I am draining the tank and cleaning it all out this week. I have caribsea Fiji pink live sand coming and I'll mix new water two days before that arrives. A custom acrylic company Is making me a 9x12.5x19" tall ato resevoir. I'll be doing a small amount of kalk in the resevoir tower with the pump on an eggcrate stand.

    Its it's not as bad with a light over it thankfully but i'll most likely slide a black acrylic shade against the inside of that chamber wall.

    Yeah was a real bummer when I saw it. Its glass to so i cant even glue an acrylic L shelf to the back for the rock scape I was planning. I may make some sort of [ or C shape under the substrate to create the floating look but nothing is looking aesthetically promising. Still working it out in my mind.

    Ordered the pump and strainer to make a mini pellet reactor out of a clear small travel bottle. Modified an eggcrate rack to replace the filter sock and made a float switch bracket.

    I cut the screw mount off the gyre controller and used velcro for all the electronic mounts cleaning up the cords as i go. All my systems have run off two wall plugs total. One plug for the PC4 on the RKL and the other plug for the PC100A Switchboard. Everything will be ran off them. With the lack of bio pellet reactor I may not do as many sps as i was planning. We will see. I just need to get all the hardware up before thinking about livestock.

    Had to rearrange the filtration. There simply isnt enough room. I should have purchased a sump and display but I cheaped out. I can already see a display upgrade in the future, hopefully I can get a few years out of this first. I really dislike the transparent back wall. I removed one of the heaters. I may in the future install a smaller 50w for a emergency backup if there is enough room. As much as I'd like and find this a crucial part of reefing I am not going to be able to fit a bio pellet reactor.. Used velcro for the pc4 and screw mounted the pc100A switchboard. Made a stand for the skimmer.

    I like the skimmer i purchased but the support magnet is too thick to use between my baffle and there is no where else to mount it. Are these reef safe under water? Anyone have any recommendations for a thin reef safe magnet? I may have to raise it with an eggcrate rack instead. Put a tyvek sheet under the stand and screwed the 4 corners to the floor through the carpet as an anchor (needs to be replaced anyway). Also made sure it was level both ways by leveling, sanding and resealing the bottom of the stand. Will be doing the rest of the stand modifications (filling holes, drilling magnet holes, and adding the door inside). Took out the stock filter sock and out two two heaters where that was. There is no other place to put them once I get a pellet reactor. To replace the sock I'll have to build an eggcrate rack around the heaters and run a filter pad / bagged chemipure elite in a very small eggcrate section above them. I cut down the plastic white heater rings and kept them on them for protection. One heater set to 78f to run on the reef keeper at 76.8f the other set to 75f to run on a plug as a backup incase the temp ever drops. Going to get rodi water tomorrow. Currently bleaching my containers overnight. Salt comes Monday. https://www.amazon.com/Unbreakable-Plastic-Coated-Neodymium-Revitalizaire-Polypropylene/dp/B06XXPJLBF

    Thanks! Their minimax desktop pellet reactor looks to be exactly what I'm looking for. Unfortunately they are expensive so the reactor might have to wait till after water hits the system but that's no big deal.
