    Well it took some time, and a replacement order from reef kinetics (DHL lost the first one), but I have the Reefbot and I’m quite excited.

    How many stirrers are supposed to come with the reefbot? The instructions say to put a stirrer in the reagents vials, but there were only three that came with it.

    Ok, I’m an idiot ( you don’t have to agree so fast!). They’re in the vials, the three must be spares.

    Ok so I have a new question. I’ve read posts that you shouldn’t cut the lines. They mention attaching the 1 meter tubing, but the included tubing is 2 meters each. Should I cut them to 1 meter?

    You can use up to 2 meters on each line. Cut whatever you don’t need.

    Cheers,

    @drernesto I don't think I've seen this asked. Can you run 2 reefbot systems at the same time using the same account/app?

    You can connect as many ReefBots as you want to one account.

    @drernesto my unit will not connect to WiFi. Is there a reset or something I can do?

    I can find it on BT. I can see my network, and select it. It allows me to enter password, but it doesn’t connect. It did say it was successful twice, but the blue lights never stopped flashing and never showed as connected in the app.

    Ok so I figured out my issue. The reefbot will not connect to My router if I use a $ in the password. I haven’t checked any other special characters. Lol the reefbot is currently the only thing on my network at the moment.

    @drernesto Will this be fixed in the future?
