I'm not sure I trust the ceiling to hold the weight either lol. I'm going to home depot with a thoughtful and open mind at first opportunity.Wow! I was actually going to ask you what mounts you were using because from talking to Logan the bots don't support the extra kind as weight of the lumens. He did say he was testing it with the new ones he's putting out but no idea an eta on that.
Do you have a way to hang them
Absolutely the reefer gods at work. The timer had turned off the lumenbars, which was the only bit actually in the water. I had NO reason to go check on it again. Plus, I initially lifted it out of the water like a dummy before checking the power situation.Looks super clean. Thank reefer gods everything worked out and you caught it on time.
Crazy man. I had a similar situation happen with my t5 hybrid. Hung from ceiling. Plugged in up on aluminum ladder. All I wanted to do was raise the clips on chain. Forgot to tighten the set screw in middle and the front right side slid forward and stopped right above water line. Was relieved it didn't hit corner of tank then I realized my hand was in water under the corner. Was pretty sketchy to say the least.Absolutely the reefer gods at work.

Even more, my now-second-trimester-from-IVF-after-5-years-trying wife (huzzah) was absolutely passed out way upstairs and I hadn't turned the lights in the room on, and my cell phone was on 2%. There was definitely a moment there in the pitch black holding the lights up on my own and uncertain what to do from there where I wondered why I got a reef tank again.
But in the end, other than a lost afternoon and a good reminder at the freshly minted age of 40 to keep staying fit and healthy for future such situations, the only real consequence was a much cleaner and sturdier lighting situation.
The gods of reefing luck indeed.
Same reason I went Cade, also read quite a few horror stories regarding shipping malfunctions with waterbox right around the time I was finally deciding on which to order.I was going waterbox, but settled on cade due to the algae Barn deal and features like gravity ATO
It was interesting to see the waterbox offered on a proper CADE like stand (or did WB do it first?), and CADE comes with a more advanced control center with the in-built power banks IMO.Dimensions on both (lx 230 and cade 1500) tanks are same if i remember correctly. The only difference is sump and ato.
So I have a guest shower that's literally never been used in the basement, about 25 feet of corners away from the CADE. That's where my mixing and RO/DI bins are Once a week in dry seasons, once every 10 days in humid ones, I walk a 30 foot hose from the RODI bucket to the ATO, clamp it in, turn on the pump, and in 3-4 minutes turn it off and walk it back. Takes less than five minutes of my life.Is there a big deal to refill Ato?
