  1. Water quality is excellent. Unfortunately I don't have any extra tanks to do a treatment like that.
  2. https://jwp.io/s/8I0FiZob This might be hard to see in this video, but I've got a couple of Naked clowns. One of them looks like it's struggling. This ones skin looks like it's getting burned. Another person came over and thought the way it was swaying back and forth looked like it might be on its last leg. It's been looking like this for the last month. Anything I can do? I've had them for about four years now.
  3. I bought a bunch of frags a while back and never really got a proper ID on them. If anyone can help me out I'd really appreciate it. 01 - ? 02 - I think this is some kind of Favia frag? 03 - Not sure 04 - I know these are Zoa's but any idea which ones? 05 - A few of these have popped up on a rock, are these just common sponges? 06 - Are these mushrooms or Ricordea? 07 - I know this is SPS and it's encrusting on a couple of my rocks. Is this Montipora? 08 - No idea? 09 - I know these are Candy Cane but are these Kryptonite? Someone came over and told me that when I was selling some frags.
  4. My Neptune probe, even when it was brand new and after calibration always seems to read low. Like 31 PPT when the tank is showing 35 using my Milwaukee Digital meter. I have made the mistake of assuming my tank salinity has been way low all this time so I got the tank up to 35 on the Apex. In doing that I don't think I've harmed anything and I'm trying to bring it back down slowly, but my old standard glass/light refractometer, and my LFS confirmed that my salinity is showing 40 PPT even though the Apex is reading 35. What am I doing wrong? Is there a way to manually offset the probe on the Apex. I know it's time for a new probe, but like I said... It's been low the entire time I've had it.
  5. I just pulled mine out of the tank to exchange for a new elite II.
  6. I just installed mine in the tank tonight. I'll give an update tomorrow. First impressions are pretty good.
  7. Just curious what your market audience was for this update. Do you see the elite 2 as an upgrade for people that already own the elite 1? Can we expect to see that much of a difference with the new design in either ease of use or performance? Or do you see the elite 2 as more for people who are in the market for a new skimmer in general? Does that make sense?
  8. I bet you can find one or two people that will sell you their original elite that are upgrading to the elite 2.
  9. Have there been any reviews on the new skimmers yet? I’ve got the original Elite and would like to see if the upgrade is worth it.
  10. I have a Bulk Reef Supply 5 Stage RO/DI unit and I'm trying to figure out if I'm using the flush valve properly... You open it up to let water flow over the membrane and and flush out the sediment, then close it back up after a few minutes to start making more water correct? But my understanding was that when you open up the flush valve the pressure should go up a little bit. And when you close it to start making water again, the pressure should drop down to normal. As of right now when mine is closed and making water the PSI is about 60. And when open it drops down to 50 PSI when going over the membrane. Is this correct or is my valve installed backwards or something? Water always comes out of the DI line in either case, usually when the valve is open it's just a little bit less. Is this normal? Open flushing the membrane at 50 PSI. Closed making water at 60 PSI. And here's just one of the valve in the closed making water position.
  11. Well I only feed pellet, so that's all that will go in the apex but my dad only feeds flake for his fresh. I think his will mainly only be used when they take trips so hopefully it will be okay. They are going on a week long cruise so they didn't want to ask people to come over every other day. But he's going to test it out before they leave so I will let you know.
  12. Thank you all... I bought the neptune auto feeder for my tank but I bought my dad the fish mate for his freshwater tank.
