    Hmm... looks like it is made by a company called Monolith Marine Monsters. Not much of a web presence and cannot find a manual. :confused:

    Thanks all, I think I'm gonna pick up a new one from MD. This one was used and came as a freebie in a trade. I had checked it to be working as the solenoid, but didn't anticipate the leak issue. I definitely don't wanna blow up anything. :D

    Wait Daniel, you're in Atlanta, I live in Georgia, and you didn't even bother to let ANYBODY know you were headed this way? I see how it is...

    Haha! It's a conference, and unfortunately, there's ZERO downtime. :( However, I'll be coming back again next month (more training), so hopefully that time will have more availability. You live near Atlanta?

    I'd be down, but the company that is paying for us to be out here has about 5 of us in 1 vehicle...which creates issues with me taking the car. Haha. I'll check to see what the details will be for when we come again next month. If I can work it out, I'd be glad to get together.

    Yeah no worries man, I'm just giving you a hard time because that's what I do. If we can possibly make it work, it would be fun as I have yet to meet another fellow reefer from R2R. Besides I was in the Navy, I can have food and a drink with almost anybody :p

    Good news: My blue line flasher wrasse is out and swimming around again. Seems like everyone is ignoring him. I'm glad that turned out a success story. :)

    Bad news: My SPS looks like someone pooped on it. :( It appears @Rakie's curse is holding. Hoping to do some major work on the tank, but it seems like with everything else I have going, it's just impossible to catch more than a few minutes at a time. I'm starting to see why some people pay maintenance companies...

    Yep. The curse is strong. You'll get through it, just bug someone near you to help setup your calcium reactor

    Only bc the tank looks REALLY BAD right now... :oops::oops::oops: I am pretty sure I know what caused the issue, but when things went downhill, it became a domino effect...it also hit that place where it hurts me to look at it, so that just makes it even worse... ;Eggonface ;Facepalm ;Blackeye At this point, this is gonna be pretty close to starting over for my SPS.

    I need to do a few basic things (like FINALLY set up my Cal Rx) before I try to bring it back from it's severe case of uglies. I plan to restock...but not until I can get it fixed.

    On the bright side, my fish and LPS all look good...so maybe I'll just take pics of the bottom of the tank for a while. :rolleyes:
