    Thanks. Getting a hang of it. Could use few lens extension rings and decent stand.

    Same here. To catch up and fulfill obligations (including your boss) more airplanes are dispatched including rental planes and crews. Last big push of the season. 🙏🏻💪

    Skip to next paragraph for quick update as this might bore you. First impressions and thoughts about Neptune System. So I was sold on Neptune’ ease of use and features, well..... It turns out there is a lot to learn, bunch of things you can screw up if you don’t know what you’re doing and a long initial setup process. I wouldn’t call it either user friendly or confirm claims that anyone could set this up within 15min out of the box. I do have to say that Neptune’ support is very responsive and helpful. They troubleshoot my unit remotely and held my hand while trying to pinpoint issues I had with initial setup and DOS dosing unit. Overall, I believe there is a potential and benefits that come with Neptun system. But I would be cautious to trust your livestock, investment and hard work with automation and convenience that this product is capable of. Failing technology is less common than say... human error but it sure could happened. With that in mind, I plan on slowely integrating Neptune to my system so I can learn how to use it safely without overcomplicating things unnecessary. What will I use it for........? Those who follow this build and know a bit about my approach to reefing should know that I neglect water changes (once every month or two 3-4g). Second most neglected is testing water chemistry (Testing only for Alk, Salinity daily). Ammonia, Phosphates, Nitrites, Nitrates? I have no clue. I haven’t test those in this tank EVER. And lastly, my goal is to achieve stability with minimum amount of effort and maintenance. So I am hoping that Neptune can fill the void in my shortcomings. Dosing 2part to achieve basic stable chemistry, automatic water changes, monitoring, critical alerts and possibly, remote access in case of an emergency. Never really cared what my PH was and now I see it all the time 😞 Update: Kessil 360X is growing on me. I might have to write a short review to go a bit more in depth. Set at %65 intensity and between %5-25 color. Purple at %70 peak, red at %20peak, green at %8 peak. Additional A160 unites are set to %70 peak and %15-20 color. Replaced ChemiPure, carbon and rinse off bio-spheres. Moved few corals to Q-tank to reduce clutter in the main tank. Q-tank had some flatworms problem. It was addressed and I am happy to report that flatworms seem to be gone. Q-tank became kind of a dump for frags that didn’t make it and less favorite corals. Surprisingly, some of those “dead” frags came back to life. Q-tank needs a bit of TLC. I haven’t change water or clean it since I have set it up. Coralline and GSP are slowely taking over that tank. Return pump/line needs some vinegar bath as I noticed significant reduction in flow. No new corals, fish or inverts. Also, no new disasters, pests or issues. So far so good.
  4. Can I get an elf with Neptun setup skills. This thing is pissing me off big time. 😡

    Almost any book will do. Dont kill her interest in books with what you think is cool. It almost never works.

    Sorry didn’t see your reply. Wasn’t a lot off the mark then. Thanks.

    Thanks. That’s what I was thinking. I was planing to use DOS Neptun for WC and possibly dkh replenishing. However, my dkh drops around 0.4-0.6 daily so minimum 3g daily WC with Red Sea Pro salt water would have been necessary to compensate. Not sure if that makes it easier or just more work lol.

    What is this setup for exactly? I think I missed the big memo.

    If I add 2g of water of 12dkh to 26g of water at 8dkh, what will my dkh be? I was thinking about 0.3dkh increase? I’m probably just guessing as I can’t come up with formula to make this work. Any ideas.....

    You and I both know that’s a bunch of BS.

    I do like IPA from time to time but this might need some getting used to tho. It tastes a little better with every sip I guess. Haven’t touch the bourbon yet. Drink of choice has always been Johnny and Jameson Black Barrel. I’ll let ya know tommorow.

    I don’t know how can you drink that @Sancho. Also, anyone good in math on here?
  15. Breakn your balls buddy. I like it. Better then my old Hanna. Flatworm exit seems to do the job. I totally disregarded precautionary steps b4/&after and used as much as I felt at the time. Nothing died except the flatworms. But I am too old to freak out about silly worms and they didn’t really bothered me. But I am glad that they are gone. Haven't had a chance to try the rest of the Sancho package yet.
