    do you check their site semi frequently? I saw they had a v2+ 24" open box return not too long ago for like $100 off, I was tempted.. but I already had 1 AI Prime so just went with a 2nd one

    Mine just jumped as well when I was gone - must've missed you. Do you have a lid for your tank? Ive avoided getting one until a couple recent horrible mishaps. I just ordered a custom lid from clearview lids. Should be here any day - I've seen them at the LFS -they are well constructed, etc and not too pricey. they do all custom measures.

    Is there a par meter rental for supporting members? I didnt know their were extra perks. You know, besides the wealth of information and people willing to go out of their way to help.

    IMHO - if its redsea - I would return it - I know - I love redsea - But it was a horrible product (the only one from them that I would complain about)

    The video clearly showed that the red sea diy screen top is better than the BRS diy screen top
    Sorry, just relaying the information from the video.

    If you just lost 400$ on fish another top that didnt have adequate weight - you might not agree :). I know - I love the brand I bought - but it just didnt work for large fish....

    true, but when you have a 50 gallon cube with your largest fish being a flame angel.. :D

    do they custom make those things? i feel like i'd pay $100 and then my powerhead cords would have nowhere to go
