Just wanted to share my interaction with Vivid, Antonio, and the RFG.

So I have a small 29 gallon BioCube, and after having the tank for a few months, knew I wanted the RFG, especially since I don't have any other pumps in the tank. I ordered it, got it in a few days, and loved it right off the bat!

Fast forward about 3 weeks or so, and I began noticing while looking at my tank the nozzle was moving up and down about 1/8"-1/4" as the water was switching directions through the RFG. I thought this might be the way it's supposed to work, to keep the flow random, but since I wasn't sure, I gave Antonio a quick call at Vivid. I ended up having a nice 10-15 minute chat with him about all things reef, and he told me that since the parts are 3D printed, every now and again there is a little tolerance difference that can cause something like this to happen. As we're talking on the phone he tells me that he already has my new packing slip in hand, and would get me out the new parts right away. And since he wasn't sure which part was off, he sent a new slip fitting, and a new RFG.

Can't say enough about how great their customer service is. I hands down love the flow out of this little guy, and know that I'll continue to put them on any tanks I have in the future...if all goes well on this tank, I hope a 120+ will be in my not too distant future!

Keep up the great work guys!
