    Trident in need of frequent calibration

    Yes and No. I think Neptune suggests you recalibrate every time you change reagents, ( this is why they include a bottle of calibration fluid with every box of reagents). But, I have gotten away from not having to do this. I usually only calibrate the unit if I am suspicious of the readings I...

    New Member Here Hello Everyone!

    oh man… Aquarium Concepts. Brings back many memories. They were a great fish store for many years in my area. Can you count on one hand how many times they had to move. If i recall, i think they moved 4 or 5 times over their existence.

In order to get a Magnesium solution to dose, you need to mix this Magnesium Sulfate + Magnesium Chloride + water to get your solution. You will NEED the second half of the mixture (or you might have...

    FYI trident service backlog

    I only wonder how much “in house/ home grown” talent chose to leave the company once the relocation was presented to them. Speaking for myself, it would be a very hard sell for me to pick up my whole life & family to move them across the country to follow my job. Paid relocation or not.

    FYI trident service backlog

    oh i forgot to mention, please don’t flame the messenger, ( me) i’m just relaying what I’ve heard on the street. I could be totally wrong! I have zero facts on my statements. Who thinks the move has anything to do with the acquisition of Neptune system by Aperture pet?

    FYI trident service backlog

    I’ve heard Neptune systems is in the process of moving from Gilroy to Pennsylvania. And basically everything that was being done “in house” is on hold. If you try and buy anything Apex from their store, they are sold out of almost everything.

    Bounce mushrooms after 6 years

    very nice. In another thread we were just discussing how mushrooms can get really big under very low flow and low light conditions.

    Want to grow super big mushrooms ?

    I’ve also experienced this with shrooms. Super low flow and low light makes them expand out like crazy. I think they are trying to capture as much light as possible (because it’s so dim) so they open up huge, & with no flow it’s easy for them to do.

    2nd Nero 3 died within 3 years- how long yours last?

    this is a first for me. I’ve been running a nero5 since they were first introduced to the market. running 24/7 minimal cleanings ( maybe cleaned 3 times). and have never had a problem other than the app losing its “time” settings. I switched it off the AI app, and put it on Mobius and the...

    Need temporary home for coral

    imo you should try and pick up or borrow one of those rubber made stock bins. It will make the whole tank transfer easier. Just drain the tank right into the stock bin, move over all your livestock, temporarily “rig” up some light and flow on the bin. That should buy you enough time to switch...
