** Saturday Update on my @MarineDepot control panels **
First, I have to paint my cabinet area white today and I am going to be planning on finishing up the two @MarineDepot panels that I sourced. They are not cheap but they are worth every single penny. You can feel free to try to source the material elsewhere but in the end, you will pay more than what I PAID for these at MD panels.
MD PANEL1 Dexlue Version for all of my #Apex Gear: 2 FMM Mods / #WXM mod to control my MP40QWD's and my #Avast Marine break outbox
2Nd MD panel is for all of my pumps, skimmer controller and all of my power supplies.
I will most likely be buying a 2nd Neptune 832bar and mount that where the Kill-A-Watt power supply is located.
Got my #apex programmed and mounted today. Second slide is my water change station. 90 gallons of water ready to go. 30 RO, 30 salt, and 30 ATO. not as neat as I want it, but it’s functional. Cycle is going well. Ammonia is just about zero, now just waiting on nitrites to fall. #reef #sca50cube #spstank
@lbacha - Picked up my new Auto Top Off kit for my new build!! Instead of going with an Avast ATO set up, I Got the #Apex ATK module so everything will be fully integrated.
I just need one more #Apex module to control my #EcoTechMarine #MP40QWD's, which is there WXM module. Next, I will be adding another MD Panel for all of my EcoTech Marine Controllers, Tunze Controllers, Reef Octo Controller, and a few others!
** New Update **
Since I have decided to go with all Neptune Apex gear to controller everything, I have picked up some more #Apex goodies. I got the Neptune #ATK Auto Top Off module, 2 Low Profile Leak Detectors, and 2 Neptune OS-1 Optical Level Sensor w/ Mounts.
I bought the 2 extra Optical sensors to install in my Synergy 10-gallon matching Reservoir to alert me for high and low levels.. Ones, It hits the low sensors, my ATO will automatically start filling up my Synergy 10-gallon reservoir.
Ones it hits the top sensor will automatically shut off my RODI, so there will be no salt creep. I still have to get my WXM module to control my pair of Ecotech Marine MP40QWDS.
Sorry for not updating, but as you may have heard, I just received a knee replacement and I’m now in rehab. My tank is still up but not maintained perfectly, still a lot to do. I’m excited that when I get back, I’ll work some more on it and I already received more equipment from #Apex, so that will be fun!
Tahda Auto water change is up and running. Since all you slackers did not answer my #Apex questions no video for you!!
I am looking to write a conductivity statement for the DOS, if the salinity is above 33.2 the new saltwater stops dosing and the old saltwater keep with drawing water so that the ATO brings the conductivity back in line. @Fudsey this will answer your question to why I would like my conductivity reading to read correct
I am also looking for a statement for timed intervals for my powerhead/stirrer in the new AWC reservoir to cycle twice a day for 30 minutes.
@Chrisfish Mama was on the Mac all day no video
Let me know your thoughts if I am eliminating Dinoflagellates the proper way in my 120 display? See below on the pictures I have below: I have few LPS frags and a few soft corals the and the rest are fish! The Dino is just starting to grow on my rocks within the last 2 weeks or but it's not getting any better, so here are the steps I will be doing to properly get a handle on this stuff. Currently, my PH is very low READING @ on my #Apex Controller @ 8.17 and I am in the process of moving it up to 8.4 ish! I added a Peri Pump from BRS that's connected to my Avast Kalk Stirrer and the pump pushes out 50mls per minute of kalk water to stabilize my Cal, Alk, Mag and my PH.. I just hooked up and its been running for about week now and I still haven't been able to hit that sweet spot yet. I just ordered two float switches so when my Peri pump gets to a certain level in my ATO storage container, my Apex Breakout box will cut the pump off instead of it running off a timer. The float switches will be able to turn the pump on & off ones it gets to whatever level I set at which will be right above my TUNZE ATO.. My plan of attack is the following - cut back on my feeding to a 1/2 of a cube instead of a full cube per day, weekly 10-gallon water changes & change out my GFO & carbon every other week or until it's exhausted. If you happen to have any other ideas on how to deal with this stuff before it takes over the entire, please advise?
