    The Money Pit: How much are you willing to spend on livestock?

    I’ve spent over $1 on fish a couple times. One of them was DOA and ended up turning into store credit (vendor was cool about it). Haven’t spent too much on coral tho as I’ve been mostly focused on “finishing” stocking my fish. My confidence at keeping an expensive fish alive is much higher...

    Neptune Trident NP and new DOS!

    More fun. Today's NP's nitrate reading jumped about 20ppm from yesterday. Salifert says between 10 & 25 :D

    Neptune Trident NP and new DOS!

    ya I totally agree. ill get another one eventually. The 774 hasn't been available w/ Prime on amazon - buying from the online reef retailers takes longer than waiting for a weekend trip to AC

    Neptune Trident NP and new DOS!

    Neptune Trident NP and new DOS!

    My Hanna is busted - I did Hanna & Salifert tests AND took a sample to Aquatic Collection to use their AquaSpin. The Salifert was close to Aquaspin (roughly 0.03-ish) and my Hanna was reading something insane like 0.3 Trying to avoid buying another $70 Hanna checker if the NP can get working...

    Neptune Trident NP and new DOS!

    Nope lol working with Neptune support now; submitted a bunch of debug logs etc yesterday and waiting for their engineers to diagnose what might be happening. Since the last update: I've done 3 or 4 water changes to bring nitrates down. Salifert is reading about 20 now where the Trident is...

    Nyos Torq & GFO

    Hey folks, I’ve been trying to use my nyos torq reactor with BRS gfo with pretty bad results. Long story short the gfo keeps escaping the reactor and causes a mess in the sump. I’ve used their mesh, filter floss & random sponges to try & keep the gfo in with poor results. Anyone have...

    What Coral / Fish do you consider to be a must - have and why?

    I just like watching them interact. Plus my tanks a 180 so there’s a lot of cleaning to be done

    What Coral / Fish do you consider to be a must - have and why?

    Bella Goby. I have a pair now and 2 is cooler than one. They’re pretty, clean the sand and don’t make too big of a mess.

    Neptune Trident NP and new DOS!

    ok bought salifert kits and ... drumroll. Salifert agrees with Trident NP. So TLDR - seems like my Hanna checkers are busted and the Trident is fine

    Neptune Trident NP and new DOS!

    Hopefully I sort mine out. It initially had the po4 “correct” but then magically decided to set it at 0 lol Still calibrating. Hoping it’s all set later today. In the mean time I’ll play video games

    Neptune Trident NP and new DOS!

    So far so good LOL As the image shows, I'm currently calibrating the NP & hopefully that gets things, more or less, in line (ran about 5 tests over the last 2 days) If not I'll go buy some Salifert kits to further troubleshoot... but, hopefully all I have to do is calibrate

    Neptune Trident NP and new DOS!

    OK so it's just like the regular trident in so much as it seats 3 reagents in the drawer. The reagent package comes with 2 extra bottles: the mini bottle... this is reagent 3b. You need to add the contents of 3b to reagent 3a (normal reagent bottle) a forth "normal" sized bottle with powder in...

    Neptune Trident NP and new DOS!
