    Ecotech MP10QD design issue

    Maybe if you've had them 5 years they are older models of a different design. I know they have upgraded since then. As far as cleaning goes nothing special. Just take them out, soak in 50/50 vinegar mix, brush them off and reassemble.

    Ecotech MP10QD design issue

    Very frustrated with my MP10. An otherwise great pump with one design flaw, the ceramic shaft in the wet side breaks continuously, and when it does it becomes very noisy. I have seen a youtube video regarding using heatshrink tubing to repair. Has anybody else done this with success? What tubing...

    Triton method with Carbon dosing questions

    ""...If your SPS are doing well, why grow more bacteria..."" To out compete the algae for reduced algae growth. ""...You will have a bacteria soup with nothing to eat it..." The protein skimmer will "eat it", that's what carbon dosing is all about, the bacteria take up the nutrients and the...

    Triton method with Carbon dosing questions

    A rather large portion of what corals feed on is bacterioplankton no? So my thinking is Carbon dosing creates more free floating bacteria, more bacteria for corals to eat. If I had to state my "goal" as you say, it would be algae removal, and prevention of it growing back. My tank is already...

    Are LEDs killing my corals?

    I would keep an eye out that it is not the clowns irritating the hammer. Hammers weren't really meant for hosts, and ive heard on forums here before of clowns being too rough with euphyllia corals and making them not open up much any more.

    Maxspect Gyre controllability

    See this video on BRS tv, from the 8:30 to 9 minute mark. I want to basically do what they did there. Is there a controller I can get that can do that? BRS tells me the maxspect controller cant do that. What good is a controller if you can't program, and have to pick from preset controls? Is...

    Triton method with Carbon dosing questions

    Background: I am interested in Triton method, interested in not doing water changes and agree with methodology that WC's are to remove waste, and to add elements that have been used up, and that we have other ways to do this besides water changes. I do not have room for a refugium nor do I...

    Searching for cont. monitor of pH SG and temp

    Alright thanks. I was kinda hoping for an all in one where you could buy the “box” and only buy the plugs in and probes that you wanted to monitor. I do like the pinpoint set up though it is exactly what I want besides being all in one. I’ll probably go that route. Dang they have a continuous...

    Searching for cont. monitor of pH SG and temp

    Can anybody quickly point me to a device that can monitor pH, SG, and Temp continuously? I know there's things like the Apex but I really don't even need all the live updates to computer or phone. Just a box even with a little screen with the real time numbers on it, something that also had Alk...
