Here’s pic of rodi during flush out. It’s a bit tidier now but sure is nice having permanent mount and new pump. New pump capable 25 feet head height and new position of set up has it only going up about 11 foot so I’m filling up top off in a hurry now. Also have Alexa controlling the outlets do rodi on its pumping upstairs say booster on for making more water. I have auto Shut off floats but still go fish to check not 100% confident……
Newest addition to tank from God knows where as I haven’t added anything in 12 months of so but got baby star

Time to retire the apex lite from duty. New apex along with a trident and DOS arrived today. Now just figuring out a step by step how I will make the swap for minimal impact on tank.
Also new lighting solution in bound. I love the t5’s the spread is awesome and shadows minimal but I need lazier lights. The need to burn in new bulbs to use the dimming feature is a hassle without building a separate station to fo so. Solution lazy man is going back to led’s. No no Chinese cheapies like the beginning three years ago going with Hydra 32 HD’s. Like the numbers have been crunched and tested to death giving me all info I need to mount for best coverage and tbh I missed the shimmer. The 1 reefbrite added to my t5’s wasn’t enough to over come t5’s and give a bit of shimmer.
Stay salty put your best into everything you love even if your best isn’t what it used to be.

Oh and Simon another record filter bleeping filter female attacked me taking suction cups off glass under 15 minutes lol.
It's OK so missed seeing the interaction thought bonded pair might be little less of psycho but surprise I'm wrong again lol.
