  1. Sounds good. I'll get something done this weekend. Will probably take a photo of the wife's tank and list par values in different areas, listing distance from light, etc. Should give you a good general idea and starting point.
  2. I don't know if it would help, but I have a par meter and an ai prime (on the wife's tank). Could take some measurements based on what percentages you guys want to run and give you an idea of what kind of par the light is putting out.
  3. Very nice. The doser is definitely going to come in handy once everything starts growing. Any idea what two part you are going to use?
  4. As others have mentioned, order of aggression can help. I have the same tank and put my two clowns in first. I later added the six line. Tried a tailspot blenny last and it didn't work out. The six line was going after it. I removed the blenny and it now resides happily in my wife's tank. Some say you can try rearranging your aquascape to break up established territory. I'm content with my 3 fish and the six line has probably helped my tank more than the blenny would have....in regards to pest management.
  5. He means 30l as in IM Nuvo 30 long. It's a 30 gallon tank...3 feet long.
  6. I also like no cords in the tank, but the cord for the nero is very thin. It's nowhere close to the thickness of the mp10s cord that goes from dry side to controller. Both are great pumps and I use both. In terms of pushing water though, nero beats mp10. Nero can also be angled slightly.
  7. Yeah, I was thinking the same thing. I have it set to a constant 15% for night time and that's what it's reading...but based on the 3000 gph max 1200 should be in the 40% range. Looks like I have some troubleshooting to do.
  8. Yes, you can turn it down to 1%. It will actually give you a read out of the flow as well. Mine is currently running at 15% and says the flow is 1240 gph
  9. Just replaced one of my mp10s with a nero in my 30l. As stated above, larger footprint and more powerful. I'm loving it so far.
  10. Very cool. Love my 6 line. It's been great so far.
  11. No kidding. It was very easy to set up, moves a ton of water....so far I'm happy with it.
  12. Mine is normally 8 to 8.1. My tank didn't really start taking off until the 10 month mark. I would just let your tank stabilize for a while. Could try the Co2 scrubber but not sure how effective it is in a small tank/small skimmer.
  13. Well, went ahead and purchased a nero 5 since they were on sale. Going to replace one of the two mp10s in my tank with this and see what happens.
  14. Does the tank have any visible signs of low pH or do you know it's low because of the Apex? The only reason I ask is because sometimes we start chasing numbers even if there isn't anything wrong. I'll be honest, I never check pH in my tank and the SPS corals are growing pretty fast. If your tank is doing well, I'd let it ride for a while and see what happens.
