GoVols, why don't you regenerate used Purigen? Your tank and insight is wonderful.
Thanks for the complements.
I used to re-charge Purigen but it's not like you get it back to 100% and it's just not worth the trouble but (lol) that's JMO
Going back to the AquaMaxx reactor. It holds in the Purigen a lot better than the Reef Octopus's chamber.
Thanks for taking time to read the build and...

"Many Ways to Skin a Cat"
But no matter how u skin them they will always look weird
Whats the deal with the new camera and tank picture setup?!
Having just dissected cats for anatomy, can confirm.
Still using ole cell phone
Cain't take inside the reef pictures worth a pooh
Well if you care you could give the AquariuClip a chance it's basic but does the job
Saw this at Rap NY it’s pretty cool
GoVols... Random (S-400) shots of the day
1) As you can see the AquaMaxx (Bio-Maxx reactor) is back online, suspending the Purigen
2) Coralline is taking back over the BB, foor
3) 1 shot shows that we still have the Arco crab
4) Started pushing two Giesemann (super-actinic's) with the two Red Sea 22k t5's, awhile back
Apex's ph graph for a calcium reactor
I did lower the Apex ph from 7.3 on and 7.2 off to 7.25 on to 7.15 off...
Because when I tested the ph on Thursday Evening the first test came in at 8.6 dkh and tested again and it tested at 8.7 dkh.
Then I tested the ph again right before Friday evenings water change and it came in at 8.6 dkh.
So, I lowered the melting point a tad and we'll see how it plays out.
Any who, onto the the Apex's ph graph.
First shot when we were just letting the Apex do all the work at two Co2 bubbles per second.
Second shot after lowering the Co2 bubble to one bubble per second.
Now the Apex is still monitoring the reactor's ph but it's not having to turn on and off the Apex switch or the GLA's solenoid / that leads to less wear and tear over the long haul.
Well I don’t think it gets much straiter then that
If @hybridazn (Hybird) does not love that flat line... _________, then I must be doing something wrong
And... Just got in Reef 2 Reef's 2018 "Partner Member"... Swag
GoVols: Cal Reactor Update
In one weeks time we have dropped .1 in dkh / cal and mag are still staying in balance.
That's good enough for myself and staying with the Apex's ph (reactor) settings as they are.
Still using the ole Red Sea "Blue Bucket" and just dosing up the alk with Seachem "Reef Builder" during the S-400's weekly water changes.
Reef still looking good...
Congratulation on the steady numbers and the system being happy.
Been a lucky reefer for 2017
From the looks of you sump area engineering, luck was not involved destiny
Luck favors the prepared
I always thought it was the harder you work the luckier you get
My wife wants u to explain this
I guess She still doesn’t understand that there are still nice people in the world
