    Automatic feeders

    I like the feeding tube idea. Is it dumped in your sump near your return pump? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Beautiful bubble tips at Aquarium Designs

    I have the same Pham/Chris rainbows, but my whites are on too high to bring out the bright colors. The radions can be “too blue” in my opinion and I don’t like that. I like the more real, natural look, so my rainbows have kinda paid the price. I started with 2 in the upgrade now I have 5. Lol. Was told they’re so hard to get bc they’re part of the Indonesian trade that’s currently cut off. Not sure of the validity of that, but someone told me that Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Automatic feeders

    I’m interested in using an automatic feeder to sprinkle pellets in the daytime while I’m at work. My fish are getting pretty big. I feed frozen daily when I get home. Any brands better than others? Are they a terrible idea? I do not have an apex hooked up Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Just how important is a level tank?

    That’s exactly what mine is doing. Leaning back to the back left corner. I leveled the stand and tank empty, but it’s on carpet and ~2500 pounds all together. It’s about 3/16- 1/4” out of level. The glass is 1” thick. It’s a pretty solid tank. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. My 140 has been set up since Labor Day. I lowered the water level a little by adjusting the fittings in the overflow box. Now I can see the water level bc it’s no longer hidden behind the plastic top rim. It’s not level. [emoji15]. I’ve read horror stories on line about it causing stress on the glass. But I don’t know what to do... how to fix it and is it really that important? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    300 Gallon Disaster Reboot

    Yay on the radions!!! I also got lucky and found a super nice guy willing to work with me and sell me his. I have 3 gen 3 Xr30. I LOVE them.... now. Like you, I had trouble setting them up. I even told a tech on about call number three, that something that costs so much money shouldn’t be so difficult to use. [emoji20]. Not his fault. I did apologize, but I was frustrated. Anyhoo, not sure if you have to program yours with a usb cable or not (I did), but I got a reeflink to control the vortech and radions wirelessly and it’s SO bada**!!!! Before because the tank and lights are so high, I had to put my laptop on top of a upside down laundry basket on top of a dinner tray! [emoji23][emoji23][emoji23][emoji23][emoji23]. Quite a mess. I agree with you about the preprogrammed settings being too blue. It was a pain to fix with the usb, but with the reeflink I I can take out the blue and lower the brightness. Mine are only running at 55%. Everything is doing awesome except my cyphastrea and the stylo. [emoji37]. I know cyphastrea don’t like crazy light, so they may be too bright. I’ll probably rent the par meter again so I’ll know. Congrats on the purchase! You will be so happy without the bulb changing, too! Lol Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
