    Nice, how much was it? I have a emperor 18w I used to run on the 180. I might put it on again.

    I would have gotten the 55 watt except that it was an inch and a half too long for the location I had left under my stand lol. That one is $78

    Crappy cell phone pic time! Lol

    So my tank temps have been hitting 81 degrees lately with the metal halides. That's not too terrible but I still felt like I needed to knock it down a couple degrees.

    So I put these on

    After one day that have def done the job. My tank never went above 80 degrees. From the front they don't look bad either, but I'll update that with a better pic later.

    The fans are plugged into the apex and are programmed to come on and run as long as the halides are on. I'll most likely modify this in the winter time to be on a degree control.

    So I got this yesterday...

    I love me some pint/pilzner glasses for some reason. Pretty stoked to add this one to the collection from @Bulk Reef Supply

    Oh yea, I got this stuff too lol

    The BRS rodi water saver (100gpd), red sea energy a & b and some phosphate checker reagent.

    Installation of the water saver was super easy, it took a matter of minutes to install.

    There it is on my vertex 100gpd rodi. For the price I feel this is a upgrade that is worth doing if you can. If you have higher tds from the tap it's not recommended to run this. Being that my tap tds is at 80 it will work fine for me.

    Hybird,
    It looks great. :)

    What's the lit up meter do, that's above the tds meter?
    Is it for the pump?

    Thanks, Freddie

    That's the vertex tds meter. I put the other one on as a backup.

    That's some low tap tds! You could add another tds meter for before membrane and after membrane before Di. Nice to know rejection rate and membrane life

    That's a good idea, I think I have a dual inline tds laying around somewhere. If I find it I'll hook it up

    It's a 2nd membrane that the reject water from the first membrane goes thru before going thru the waste water line. The kit came with a inline 2 to 1 fitting so all rodi water from both membranes goes thru the di together.

    Hybird,
    Are you going to keep dosing the KZ Coral Snow for water clarity?

    Thanks, Freddie

    Yes I am, I'm actually getting ready to order a new bottle or make my own with the DIY recipe for it. I might try the latter since it is cheaper lol

    Welp,
    Going to follow you and Micheal's lead on that product.

    Thanks for your incite and I'll start it slow and see how the lps and zoa's react to the KZ snow.
    As long as it does not strip out all the water columns nutrients, like too much ROX, then all should be good.

    I heard the kz coral snow has a chance of killing vertimid snails so I ordered up 100ml of it if it (brs 10x points )works out I will be continuing with the make my own version
