    I just used one. Hopefully it will take hold and spread. Your setup looks awesome. I have a feeling I will be upgrading to the L1 :)

    I also decided to ditch the apex and will be running a Profilux 4. Picked up a SA GHL 2.0 Doser yesterday. I like that it comes with four heads for the four Triton bottles.

    Patiently waiting on UPS and FedEx to deliver more goods. Why does it always seem to take so long. Don't they understand I'm in the middle of my build. :)

    Mounted the 4 60" t5 lights and canopy over aquarium. Will check par levels tomorrow with my seneye and then decide on which led lights to add.

    Also UPS destroyed a set of t5 light reflectors so I will be ordering another set from BRS.

    Also on tomorrow's list. Time to upgrade my skimmer with this Reef Octopus Classic 200INT. This thing is a beast compared to what I'm running now. :)

    I plan on running a skimmate locker with an automatic neck cleaner probably from Avast so I don't have to smell it. That stuff makes me gag, haha.

    So a size comparison to my current sca-302. That is a 12 ounce can in front, ha. I decided to upgrade since I am feeding heavily now. At least twice a day with frozen food. My fish are loving it.

    I drive for UPS and have been there 30+ years. Don't worry about the time delay, rather hold your breath that the **** arrives in tact and not busted up or lost!! :)

    Sorry to be laughing on my end but this is too dang funny!! :):)

    I swear to you I didn't read this post before I made my previous comment about working for UPS and hoping your stuff isn't broken or lost. And after I replied I went back into your thread where I left off and barely scroll down and come across this gem.
    Company is a flat out mess and embarrassment.

    Here is what the reflector looked like. I'm thinking maybe it fell off the truck along the highway and was run over by an 18 wheeler. Then someone came along and noticed it on the side of the road later in the week and decided to drop it off out of generosity.

    What is really sad is they charged the seller $58 to pack and ship it. Yes, this was packed by the ups store. I don't understand why they didn't put this in a tube. I have 60" t5 bulbs delivered in tubes no problem.

    Maybe you can advise #dburt520 on how to recover his losses.

    UPS Stores aren't technically owned by the company and you mainly have a bunch of clowns working there.

    The only advice I can give the other guy to avoid future loss is not to make the same mistake twice......request another carrier. ;)

    Company will more than likely try to have you provide the original packaging it arrived in, and if it isn't up to par they'll deny any claim submitted.
    Although the company doesn't handle things the way they need to, I see on a daily basis customers just throwing stuff in a box all loose......reusing boxes 10 times over and all softened up.......etc......and they think it's gonna arrive in one piece.
    People are too lazy and sloppy on both ends of the deal.
