OVER ALL I AM JUST NOT HAPPY WITH IT. It makes a lot noise. Like it gets out of sync. I have had it up and running since last December, cleaned it regularly with vinegar which may be bad, but I have never seen any magnet/plastic bulging.

After keeping the Foxface Rabbit fish in the UV QT for about a month, I did the modified TTM using first formalin dip and then using H2O2 dip. Mr. Foxface tolerated the H2O2 dip with flying colors. No signs of distress at all.

I got 5 spiny star astea snails from a nice local fish store I recently found. I also picked up a nice moderatley sized purple cabbage coral - sinularia dura. Simple cheap and easy! It is one of my favorite leather corals.

#honestyinreefing just an update that pouring bleach over a piece of LR will indeed kill a lot of pods. I just wanted to share that either the bleach or ammonia spike did more than shock a lot of pods. There were many dead pods later in that bucket. :(

@Brew12 I finally remembered to read your article on ground probes. Nice article. Is there is one you recommend?

And to check my skimmer pump...
Use a bucket of water, the ground probe in the water with the pump and then plug in the skimmer pump. If the GFCI trips the pump is bad?
