  1. I made a seperate alias on my network (not password protected) and got the light back on. Havent tried to switch back, but would like to understand whats going on? Thanks everyone!
  2. Nanobox Duo M Plus light - has been working, but after coming home from a few days away, light is out, and red light blinks 1 long red, 3 short red. (joining network.) No network changes have happened.. I reset wireless settings on controller 3 times, and tried to rejoin a couple of times too.. Nothing seems to work.. When I eject and re-insert the imp card, the light does come on (for 1/10 of a second)
  3. Solved.. The extra piece(s) were if you wanted to use it as a surface skimmer.
  4. I am struggling here.... My lack of mechanical skill combined with having never even seen a protein skimmer before, coupled with the barely-english instructions from Tunze= I have no damn idea what all these pieces are for.. Might as well be a box of dead hooker parts. Does anyone know of a good video of assembly?
  5. So for anyone trying this.... See below on how NOT TO DO IT. The grey base you see below adds too much thickness, the skimmer will not fit. Take a hacksaw or dremel, and remove the black magnet from the grey plastic base, and it will fit., IGNORE THE FOLLOWING IMAGE (How Can I remove from post)?
  6. I think I have found my problem. I tested a new batch of water; 0 phosphates, so that rules out bad source water. I had a bag of chemipure elite and a seperate carbon bag in my media basket (been there a month;) the carbon must be leaching P04 - the only rationale explanation. I just did a 2/3 water change and retested @ .47 in tank so I am going to do another large water change again tomorrow- try to get my baseline under .2 or so. Then I will monitor daily, adding chemipure elite (only) once it stable. I will report back to confirm.
  7. Long time lurker, first time poster. Getting ready to move into a new tank, and have spent some time trying top get my stuff together.. Tested for phosphates for the 1st time, and am really confused.. See below for details. Have a 14G Biocube that has been running for a couple of years. Other than some red slime issues when I started it - everything has been stable and looks good. I'd like to start a new Innovative Marine 25g lagoon tank with some SPS in addition to my current zoas. I have really never spent much time testing water other than nitrates, but in anticipation of the SPS, I decided to get some "Advanced" test kits, one of which is the Low Range Hanna 713 Phosphate checker. Needless to say, I was very surprised by the results. Tank Setup 14g Biocube, Intank media basket, filter floss, chemipure-elite, Nanobox duo +m light Ecotech MP10 powerhead (25%-75% power) MJ1200 return pump RO water, 50% water change 2 weeks ago. All top of water= RO 2 clownfish, a cleaner shrimp, various snails and other CuC. Various zoas and an obnoxious mushroom coral Red Sea Coral Pro Salt 1.024 Minimal "bad" algae; sand is clean/white (purple in picture is from camera white balance being off I guess) Thin sand bed, 1" at thickest point, 1/3 of tank is bare bottom Tank Parameters Temp - 79F Nitrates 5 ppm ph 8.2 Alkalinity 195 ppm / 11.0 dKH Calcium 432 mg/l Phosphates 1.5 ppm (WTF) I tested twice, and got similar results. Again, have not done a water change in two weeks, so would expect parameters to be as bad as they would ever be (just surprised how bad,) because it sounds like my phosphates are 300X higher than what I need to maintain SPS corals? I don't think so, but am I missing some sort of calculation conversion? Otherwise, what in the hell? Jeff Bridges
