    Reefwave 45 ‘no connectivity'

    I've had the unit for a few weeks and it has been working over Wi-Fi without issue. I've modified the setup a few times without issue. This morning I got a notification that connectivity was lost. I rebooted the unit and my router and the lights on the unit seem happy, as if it's connected...

    starting to get over-run by algae

    I have a brown algae that's starting to take over the tank (see attachment). I do have a refugium with chaeto that I suspect is making it into the main tank. I have to clean it by hand and it's getting tiresome and I'm loosing the battle. Plus, it just doesn't look good and it's hard to get...

    Reef Octopus Regal 200 SSS FS cable question (and problem)

    Hi all, I think some of these are massive 50A connectors, we're talking about a lot less power needed and something lot less bulky. For example, have a look at the power connector into the VarioS controller, it's far more robust, easy to connect/disconnect. I first need to understand the...

    AI Hydra 52's were OFF this morning

    Lunar was on between 10P and 7A, maybe this is the secret. I have disabled it, thanks. I wouldn't have expected it to be completely off, however :)

    AI Hydra 52's were OFF this morning

    Hi all, I've had a HYDRA-52 system running with an AI director for years. I've gone through one director and two power supplies for the HYDRAs but other than that things have been smooth. This morning, when I went to the tank, both lights were completely off, yet powered on with green...

    Reef Octopus Regal 200 SSS FS cable question (and problem)

    Hi all, I have a relatively new Regal 200 SSS. It has a float sensor attached to the lid of the collection cup which connects to the VarioS 4-S controller via a 2-wire connection. I love this feature, as it prevents skimmer overflow which seems inevitable once in a while. Like all of...

    Xp2000-sss water depth range

    I finally got rid of the xp2000sss super reef octopus skimmer. There are a few problems with it: 1. I cannot provide 6 inches of water depth in my setup. I tried to make this work for too long, I kept getting overflows at 7.5 inches. This is probably my fault from the beginning. 2. The seal...

    Ai director range?

    That's not good. Isn't the director supposed to be able to control multiple tanks? If assume they would be located more than 15 feet apart. I really don't want to go with a wifi connection, but if the connection to the lights from the director is that bad then I guess I won't have a choice...

    Ai director range?

    Hi all, Does anyone use the director in a large house and can comment on the range? Also curious if it's connected via Ethernet or wifi. Thanks.

    Picture of pacific sun fixture on a tank mounted with spider legs?

    That's good. But, still, my concerns are around what happens if it breaks. Will you get any reasonable support? How long will it take for the unit to be sent it for repair and returned back. That's what would really concern me. But, at the end of the day, it's obviously a personal...

    Picture of pacific sun fixture on a tank mounted with spider legs?

    I agree. The purchase price is just too big to deal with that sort of stuff. Frankly, if I waited a month and a half (like the other member) for initial delivery, and it came without the mount and had a wrong (or incorrectly stitched together) power cord, I'd just call them up and ask for an...

    Flame angel lying on sand bed

    I woke up this morning to find that the hermit crabs had gotten him... so I promptly removed him. I hope it's not a problem that will re-appear. Thanks for you help.

    I understand, please don't take it that way. Your reply just added to my already formed opinions. It's sort of comical that they wouldn't ship an American power plug. And that they forgot the mounts. My primary concern is if it takes that long to get a new set and that's what you get (wrong...

    Hi Sorry about that. However it makes you feel better your grief has finally cemented my decision to not go with pacific sun. It just strengthened my concerns and aligns with other feedback. I hope it works out for you. Mike
