Discussion in 'Neptune Systems' started by Terence, Aug 31, 2017.
I personally apologize- shill was definitely too strong a word - and I didn't mean it to be insulting to you or Russ. I mentioned in my post that he is invaluable on the Neptune forum as well - and I meant it. I was making the point that people that are being 'paid' by a company should disclose that (not just yours but everyone's) when they post opinions on a message board. Similar to when the authors of scientific articles disclose financial interest in products used in the study for example.
IMHO, Russ' handle on the Neptune systems board suggests (but doesn't say) that he is independent of Neptune. I have my opinions on this - certainly nothing personal against him or you - and again I apologize for using the word 'shill'
So no Apex Jr on these joints ? Will I really have to upgrade? Sorry I’m late
Yep. You can order just base unit, or the Apex EL. Either of those will do it
2 questions if I may...
How complex is the replacing of reagents?
I think i understood that we will be replacing alk reag monthly and the other 2 every 2 months?
And on the video it was stated that Apex can overdose up to a predetermined value to keep the desired parameters. Will it ALERT us that this is happening so we can adjust the daily dose to match the new
Consumption rate? And can Apex shut off our DOS if something caused a quick rise in a tested value (DKh primarily) in case some stressor caused consumption to decrease??
I asked just in case anything had changed I’m still in disbelief lol dang it imma have to upgrade
@Terence , sorry if it was mentioned earlier, I didnt see it if it was, but how is the Trident calibrated?
By the way, the Apex u sent me is awesome!!!
Actually I found your post about calibration.
Are there any plans for mounting options? I have the perfect place to sit it in my stand but in the video it was stated the Trident needed to be mounted above the sump. Thanks in advance!!!
You could have it at the same level as the sump. The reason why they would like you to put the Trident higher than the sump is for safety reasons. The main one is limiting siphon issues. If the tubing became disconnected at the back of the Trident the water in sump would be sucked out and drain out through the tubing. Having the Trident above the sump makes that a non issue. Also if the Trident is at sump level that means your Aquabus or 1Link connection is lower than the sumps waterline. Splashes or drips can send water into those back ports directly along the wiring.
Changing reagents is as simple as unscrewing the bottle caps and replacing the bottles.
I wonder how hard it will be for the trident to be made to test other elements once the initial 3 are perfected. I’m hoping one that test nitrate , phos and something else be so cool and nice to have. I dose lanthanum chloride so an automated phosphate test would be sweet. This is what’s going to set trident above the rest if it works right. It should be fairly straight forward to develope other test seeing how it’s done through tritation and not done using a ph probe.
Well, $599 IS less than $600 …..
I was literally having this same conversation with another reefer 2 nights ago. Hoping the technology can me adapted
That is pretty cool …. I just hope it's consistently accurate.
Hysterical!!! LOL RUSS....
It would be nice if that tile , with the Big 3, had a time/date stamp under each value which said as of "10:00 Am" or 3 hours old.
How long does it take Trident to perform these tests .
Is there some sort of filter on the intake of the unit? I could see dirt getting sucked in causing problems
