Wow that’s a sweet setup! I would love a floor drain. CaRx will for sure be on my next tank too.Dont get me wrong it was worth every second of it. Expecially when I had all sps, but it's like having a dog. You can't really go away for too long, gotta be home by the end of the day to walk him, or in zeovit case, shake, measure and dose lol.
It's been nice since getting a calcium reactor running, now I'm using the kamoer peristalic pump to control return rate, the 4 part is automated and this will be automated (once I get a figure for what I want to dose and how often) honestly all I do Is test once a week and do a water change every 2 or 3 weeks. And my new sump actually has a water change chamber built in and drains right to my drain line. So that's a 15min job. It's been great. NOW IF I CAN JUST GET MY ACROS BACK ID BE HAPPY LOL!!!!
One thing about the reef energy though is I found them to be the most consistent if you shake them right before measuring, one of the components has a reef roid type particle that settles to the bottom that is intended to be suspended in the liquid. Some bottles smell different too which was always concerning to me. Some smelled like apple juice, some smelled like aquavitro fuel(amino smell), some didn’t smell like anything. Just an observation, lol. I like consistency.
