The heads are detachable and can go any of the 4 directions. They snap in.

They fit standard doser tubing which exists because we can't have nice things or standard sizes.
There may be another reason too though, like smaller tubing makes it easier for the pump to draw, or easier to dose small amounts.

Not dumb at all. This is the "mini" version of what your looking at. Advance to 2:27 and they show the head positions. It's like this on all of the pumps. But with the 5 head I would only recommend up or down because the lines may get pinched. Full transparency, the only drawback is the size of the tubing. It's not standard airline tube size but smaller. And the little nozzles are tiny and hard to source if you loose them. I have been looking for barb fitting to be able to use airline tubing and haven't found them, yet.
I find the drip irrigation fittings are really good for airline application because they have such prominent barbs and are about the same size.
Plus they’re available at garden centers!

JF Solar Flare Mille
Strawberry Shortcake Acro
BC Bubblebath Unicorn
Ruby Red Xenia (office tank)
Purple Gorg (office tank)
Unk Tenuis ($5 grab)
Purple starburst staghorn
Clean up crew

I am on the fence with getting a 3 piece mystery pack from @Camaro Show Corals. Not really into Zoas much though. Also debating grabbing a JF Fox flame (Mheh) and Blue Cespitularia (office).
Are there any cool pieces I should be on the look out for that you all love and would recommend grabbing if I see one? I dont have a torch yet but they dont do too much for me same thing with trachy;s. Maybe a cool bubble coral but im not sure i have the room for one of those.

Yes sir. I will see you there for sure. Not a big zoa junkie and looking for more "low end" options. I will probably roll the dice on those mystery boxes you have posted.

You're killing me smalls. I just happen to have some that have gone explosion mode since starting the shine. I need to start fragging stuff myself. Sorry for the super blues

That's the dream! Getting all those zoas growing together in nice patches. I've always had one paly or zoa that takes over all the real estate.

I just go to catch up and hang out with buddies. We usually go up a day or 2 before hand and get hotels. Drink, eat, and be merry. Some of them vendor, others buy, others just socialize. Never really know! Haha

I hate to throw this up there but I just need a confirmation. #Cronies is this brook? I think yes. No other fish presenting and this just showed up last night. Oldest fish in the tank. Eating fine swimming fine. If so pull and do a fw dip? Thanks all. Will order meds and transfer to the 29 if needed.
