    Red Sea Reefer Deluxe XL 200 Build

    And they can be daisy chained. Notice the double ended short wire by the head? I had it up and running in a matter of 5 minutes. Most of that time was me trying to decide who long I wanted the tubing. App being already setup was a matter of long hold a button and change name.

    This month's tank delivery just showed up. Was not in the mood to calibrate the doser. I also have a rat's nest of cords I have to untangle.

    Red Sea Reefer Deluxe XL 200 Build

    That is what I have as my top solution. I was going to get a smaller surge protector and have the two dosers on just that outlet. Pull a total of 10 watts over the course of a week. lmfao

    Red Sea Reefer Deluxe XL 200 Build

    Ordered an additional dosing pump. Same brand and model as the other so that I can monitor both with the same app. This leads me to another obstacle, electric power. I need a new form of plugging things in. My surge protector is full as is the wall outlet it plugs into. Also ordered a supply of...

    Red Sea Reefer Deluxe XL 200 Build

    I stuck my kid's GoPro into my tank(after wiping it clean) Wasn't sure what the lens would pick up colorwise. I was considering getting one just for the tank since they are on sale for $100s off. This is completely stock settings. Maybe something could be adjusted.

    Things are staying good. Phosphates are hovering around .09, would like them lower but if I can get them to stay steady at the range of .07-.10 Might just call it a night. Will be doing another 30% waterchange this week. slow and steady. The photo below does not seem photorealistic. The colour...

    Red Sea Reefer Deluxe XL 200 Build

    After I finished the waterchange, I kicked the skimmer back on and watched what it did. It started "overflowing" I had spare saltwater so I just used the drain hose to let it overflow into a bucket. I probably produced 1 gallon of skimmate before it settled to normal amounts. The skimmer is...

    What lens kit are you using (smartphones)

    I went ahead and placed an order for a lens kit. Ended up going with IceCap because I'm a fangirl. Love their battery backups, and VHOs back in the day. It was within $5 of the Orphek and came with an additional lens. I'll be sure to post videos and photos soon.

    Final Water Change? Will this be the last water change to get the phosphates back in line where they should be? Not sure. Did a larger water change this time, took out about 3 extra gallons. Scrubbed a bit of algae off the back of the rock structure. Stirred the sang but did not syphon the sand...

    What lens kit are you using (smartphones)

    Looked up the brand and got a 404. Makes me think that most of these are similar. I see some that have cutouts for the phone lens. What would the purpose of that being?

    What lens kit are you using (smartphones)

    I have been using the Reefing Art gel filters, and I really liked them. I have had them for about a year now and the threads have stripped so I am no longer able to attach the Macro lens. This is a big bummer for me because I love Macro shots. Before I just go fork out more cash to buy the same...

    LF hanna phosphate regiments asap

    I have already crested the issue. Even running GFO my tank hit .24 before I was able to nail the culprit down. Water change yesterday put me at .08.

    Red Sea Reefer Deluxe XL 200 Build

    Starting another water change today. The first water change brought the Phosphates down to .08. Talk about a sigh of relief. I do about a 15 gallon water change which is around 25%. I also pulled all GFO out of the tank. Today I swapping back over to homemade frozen foods. I can't wait for my...

    I have some, how far are you from Alexandria? I have 10 left, I can spare 5 of those. Currently in the middle of a huge Phosphate issue due to bad RO/DI so I can't part with all of them.

    First waterchange with new filters. Phosphates reached .24 before I found out what was causing it. That is .24 while running GFO. Hopefully this should be a steady recovery.

    I received my new Return Pump [Sicce Syncra Silent 2.0 Pump (568 GPH)]. I will say it is a small pump. Looks like it fits the sump much better. If hold the Sicce in my hand it is like a meatball. I hold the VarioS-4 and it is like a meatloaf. lol I didn't take a photo of the return pump because...

    Red Sea Reefer Deluxe XL 200 Build

    I ordered a Hydor E-SK 600 DC skimmer. Hard pill to swallow knowing I dropped nearly $400 on the current skimmer. Anyone want a RSK 300? Be perfect for a 70-100 gallon. Way to big for a ~53 gallon. I also ordered Syncra SIlent 2.0 to replace the way to powerful VarioS-4. Anyone want a Varios-4...
