    Apex . Hum. Update firmware so it will work with fusion. D/l installer. Installer will not work with mac 10.6.4 on old lappy. Darn. D/l installer on new laptop. Oh need wired ethernet connection to router. No ethernet port on new laptop. Ah ha music server is mac mini. Ok step 2 turn on "fusion" in controller. Fusion is on, sees everything but no control. After 3 hours of reading threads, no hair left, I find you must also turn on "fusion control" in controller. I knew that computer Sci degree would come in handy some day. Fusion works great. Does all the "if then's" for you. Put some clear 45's on the sea swirls. 100% improvement in looks for sure.

    3 Deadmen. The sump is full. No new leaks. Filling the skimmer now. Want to be sure no leaks there before cranking up the pumps. Anyone with MP60's on thick walls? Im getting some noise that I didn't get on my mp40's. I put a rolled up piece of tape under the bottom edge of the dry sides and it helped a little. Any ideas?
  6. Lets see .. 10 per row .... 20+ rows. hum Where to put them .... Let me get to the bank and see if they will give me a loan.
  7. Best to leave the cables au naturale. You know the minute you clean them up, a new electronic device will be needed Then yer back in the same boat.

    All 4 of the 2" bulkheads were leaking. 3 in the overflow box and one in the sump. Maybe my hole saw was a mm too large. Maybe the wobbly chuck on the old drill press. The 1-1/2 was fine. A few threaded connections needed tightening. Everything is too clean. No crud to fill in the tiny gaps.

    Thanks, It is salt water. It started out fresh for 1 day. I have been mixing it heavy before adding. Should be up to 1.025 now Will have to check in the AM before mixing my next batch.

    Water has reached the sump. Spent most of the day fixing leaks. Knowing my luck, I should have siliconed all the bulkhead gaskets. Tomorrow I should have enough water to turn on the pumps. The cheap power head is pointed at the surface to break up the scum. I don't like the sea swirl black pipes in the tank. I will have to shorten the pipes and make some clear 45's. I think that will help. Orange in left corner is magnet cleaner with cloth covering it.
