    Pissed off at PG&E

    Just need to vent. They shut off power last night at 10 pm and won’t restore it until tomorrow at noon. I’m doing my best to keep things warm and oxygenated but it’s going to be difficult. I have a whole house generator on the way but it’ll be weeks before they install it. PG&E needs to be...

    Manual soda ash dosing

    For my 55g I need to increase the alkalinity about 3 dKh. I don’t have a dosing system for that tank an yesterday, when I poured 10ml of soda ash solution, there were a lot of white particles. Is there a way to do some kind of siphon drip that will do about 60 ml slowly over 3-4 days?

    If my return pump is slowly getting dirty over time and pushing less water - is that a condition that the Apex will detect via power monitoring? Will the pump start to use more power as it gets dirty?

    Trimming SPS

    This is something I’ve never done but I have a birds nest that’s about to touch a purple stylo. Removing the rocks is not an option. How do you do it? Do you just go in there with the rusty bone cutters and hope for the best?

    Coral QT help

    I got a big piece of pipe organ coral from Live Aquaria because we started out with one a year ago but ended up killing it with an overly aggressive dip and I wanted to try again. But...after looking at it, I’m afraid to put it in my mostly pest-free tank and I don’t have a tank setup to...

    Acro PE before lights on

    New to acros but I’m noticing their polyps are extended more in the morning before the lights come on. Especially the top ones - at the end of their “tubes”. Is that a thing?

    Apex after power loss

    When the power comes back on after a power loss, the water level in the sump is high and my skimmer overflows immediately. I’m wondering if the Apex has a notion of this and I can program it to defer turning on the skimmer. As a work around, I can turn it off when the ATK high level sensor is...
