Thanks guys. Appreciate the comments.

So the Nothing on the Apex side gets hot except for the the Brain. I am going to order some 24v fans and run them off the One Link. Should keep things happy. I’ve been playing with the idea of adding LEDs behind the panels but it’s going to be a real pain in the butt. So I’m going to put a pin in that one.

I’m fighting some turf algae so that’s more important than LEDs lol!

Awesome build. You're equipment area has given me some great ideas for my next build. I'll be upgrading from a 90 to a 150 after the holidays. Semi convinced the wife that it is better to move into a bigger tank now rather than shock established corals, lol. The new tank arrived on Wednesday and I'm planning the stand and cabinetry now.

That’s great, make sure you share you progress here. I might get some ideas from you also. Planning it out on paper helps a lot. I killed a whole binder of graph paper. Lol

Was a busy weekend of maitenance. I added a Apex to my water mixing station. Tested it out today and took me 17min to do a 30g water change. Cleaned both the return pumps. Picked up 60gph more flow by doing so. Topped off my ATO. Cleaned my Sulfur Denitrator and added Kalk to my Stirrer. Rewired my Apex cooling fans to their own 24v line off the EB832. They are coming on 5 min every 20 min for now. Still need to clean the glass and change out two of my DI resins. Think I’ll do that on New Year’s Day lolE13FDAF5-5BC9-4839-BE5A-72C4DEFC0CA8.jpegEFDD94EF-D191-4DE2-974B-3751F2C083BA.jpeg4900E280-5166-4A1E-A569-BF960E073422.jpeg411F08D1-23C1-453F-A2CC-C5C1670AA725.jpeg820882EE-B22A-4561-A531-FF142CDE7F5F.jpeg301965AC-FE2A-47FB-A5B6-2273E6035F52.jpeg98387334-74C1-4538-AF7E-063D203AFEC1.jpeg

Lol, WELL....I was about to throw it as far as I could because the bottom came off when I first started it up. It was my fault for not checking the bottom before turning it on. New toy and all I was excited. Lucky I have some buttons hooked to my Break out box and could kill the system before it spread any farther than that chamber.

After cleaning my sump up I tested it again and after dialing it in I love it. Does not need much flow to work. Using it for GFO right now and working great. 608A39F7-C3E9-4195-8A9E-6ABB46F767B2.jpeg

Ugh that stinks. At least you caught it before it went everywhere. Glad you figured it out and it's working well now.
