So the road block was with chiller fittings. Apparently we don’t get Hailea spare parts here in India. I’ve contacted many distributors and store owners of the hobby. It’s just buy the whole thing kind of a deal...

I over Tightened the clamp by the chiller and tube. It broke. So in trying to find the fitting it took me 3 weeks and I GOT WHAT I WANT..

Backup fitting of a canister filter is not my chiller input. Used canister filter hose. Much more reliable.

After all this, just when I was about it test my RO system, leaks and there was no purification happening.

So now what?? Well some issue with my booster pump wiring and high pressure switch. Plus Flow restriction wasn’t there on the waste water line. Yatayatayata...

So all that fixing took me 3 more days and here were are end of August, and off I went for my BUSINESS trip for 8 days.

sorry about all the road blocks sometimes its a patience game. but glad you stuck it out tanks looks amazing. hopefully you can figure out the chiller issue. I bet you need one in Hyderabad.

Update Time -

Since the road blocks, I've been able to get everything up and running including the chiller fittings. Now my tank is maintained at 27.5 Deg consistently.


I added sand and started by cycle, then 10 days in I decided to go BB. So again a redo by removing sand. But nevertheless, cycling is done. Added my first pair of clowns. Platinum and Picasso. YaY

Do you think buying and selling coral is similar to playing the stock market?
