  1. Typical chinese black box. They will grow nearly anything on an appropriate sized tank but don't expect the quality of the top level equipment. They usually only have two channels, one that controls blues and one that controls whites (and any other colors). These channels are either on or off. There are some companies that make upgraded versions that have timers, remotes, and can do sunrise/sunset. In my opinion, they are awesome value for the money but there is definitely better out there. -A-a-ron
  2. Heck yeah! You sir, are an inspiration! -A-a-ron
  3. I'd also cover to ensure nothing is entering the brute. You may have addressed this but is there anything else in the brute? Pumps, PVC, Etc?... -A-a-ron
  4. Well, that is certainly one informative post. Don't know if I'll ever need it but this is definitely sticky material. -A-a-ron
  5. Where do you keep the tub and is it covered? I have mine next to my furnace and there was a yellow film on everything. My tests were all over the place until I figured that out and wiped my bins and buckets out. Now I keep everything covered. Sent from my SM-G970U1 using Tapatalk
  6. Take some of the RODI to a LFS and have them confirm your findings? Maybe a member here that uses something other than API will test for you. I'd test but I use API myself. Sent from my SM-G970U1 using Tapatalk
  7. They're cheap and easy to install! I highly recommend you make the 10 minute commitment. Sent from my SM-G970U1 using Tapatalk
  8. Just made my first order. Shipped the next day. Hopefully I will get them soon! Sent from my SM-G970U1 using Tapatalk
  9. I still find it funny that nearly everyone universally uses "making water".... Sent from my SM-G970U1 using Tapatalk
  10. I stashed my tank in storage while overseas (Guam then Hawaii) and to be honest. I missed it way less than I thought I would. Another factor you may want to consider is the cost of electricity out there. Not sure about leases allowing an 80 gallon tank either. Just things to think about. I lived in Waikiki and constantly found myself wandering around the city. I miss it for sure. I may have already said this but definitely hike kokohead and visit Kona brewing after.

  11. Yeah, flooded it the first time I filled it. Bought a float switch the next day. Sent from my SM-G970U1 using Tapatalk
  12. Thank you. Just when I noticed the smaller one missing a chunk of it's tail fin I somewhat panicked. Sent from my SM-G970U1 using Tapatalk
  13. Thanks Jon! I guess I'll just keep an eye out. Sent from my SM-G970U1 using Tapatalk
  14. Thanks. I've read a few things. It just odds me out that the fish is happy swimming by "her" side when "she" isn't attacking him. Sent from my SM-G970U1 using Tapatalk
