    power outage - APEX

    +1 on the heartbeat but other products are generally faster. As much as reef beat sucks it’s pretty damn quick with notifications like that. And like @H2OPlayar said - nest is probably the fastest but not for everyone.

    How many suction cups for 48"x30"x20" tank?

    The delivery folks have never flinched when I’ve asked them to scoot it into the garage. I just tip em afterwards and they’re always cool about it

    Nothing exciting besides 3 InkBirds (1 BRS model, 2, I think, 306a model)

    Neptune DOS is 20% off at BRS

    Glad I was able to put mine in the garage for the new tank for this exact reason!

    Neptune DOS is 20% off at BRS

    SKY is 25% off too - gave 2s of thought to getting one for a hypothetical coral QT I might setup some day.

    Alrighty - the booster pump has earned its keep. Previously making 15g of RODI took me about 105 minutes. Now with the booster running @ 85psi its down to 77 minutes... almost 30% faster. Not bad! I went ahead and updated my ATO and NSW auto-fill programming with updated time values (force...

    ya, exactly; just snip the end and dump it into the cuvette. maybe the foil lining thing isn't possible or too expensive in a straw shape? seems like an obvious thing to do

    Well, the fallow period is pretty boring but I've been taking advantage of the fishless situation to do a few things: first and foremost I bought some coral :) figured I might as well use the fallow period to serve as a coral QT (against fish parasites) I also replaced the return nozzles on the...

    What do you do after a water change?

    My auto water change dumps outside, on the side yard where the garbage cans live. Manual water changes I just dump down the driveway. I wish it didn't kill plants but, like you, I have no idea how to repurpose the water.

    Ya nest for sure has home/away assist. I have mine set to eco mode when we’re out. My eco temp “high” is 80. So worst case the AC goes on when it’s 80 in the hallway. The room the tanks in is dramatically cooler so I should be fine.

    Fallow reset if I add dead/dry rock (like marco rocks)?

    Nope. Dead, dry, unused marco rock should be fine.

    Might as well have some fun while fallow. Radion #6 is up & running thanks to @jhuynh Yes… I leveled it after I took the picture.

    Rich's home tank

    Put it in a bucket with an LLS ;) I’m 99.36% joking but it would work. You’d need an ATO and I assume it’ll rust too

    How do you use a Python water change system?

    I had a 20g brute on wheels that I’d siphon old water into. Then had another 20g brute with a sicce ultra zero connected to a python for filling. Once in a while I’d use the sicce & python to drain my whole sump if I wanted a bigger water change.
