The gfci that my tanks are on keeps tripping. Should I be looking for a tank problem or a house problem? It's only staying on for a few minutes at a time. Haven't had this happen until today.

    have you tried plugging the ones that aren't acting up again?

    They are on an apex but I have them powered by a regular power strip. I just plugged them in and it tripped. Then I unplugged the one kessil I've been having trouble with and everything has stayed on for about an hour so far. I'm pretty sure it's that light. Time to see how kessil's customer service is with warranty claims. I should be just barely under the 1yr mark.

    Didn't you read the part where I said I can't possibly tear apart my system? ;-)

I was surprised my decorator crab ate a big clump of cheato fast. Is that unusual? I thought nothing ate the stuff.

    I've never heard of anything eating it as well.

    When he has no algae then he'll find himself food. Put some Nori in with him.

My divers den box got lost today at UPS. Delivery moved to Monday. The live aquaria people are working on it now. Still sucks. Makes me sick to think that box has been sitting in a warehouse all day until at least tomorrow. I wish there was a different way of doing things when a life is at stake. :(

Thinking of hooking up the wavebox today. I wonder how loud the overflow will be and how much heat it'll add?

Can hammers and frogspawn be close to one another?

    Yes to the question, wrong about the torch being the only LPS to be kept apart. I have a Lobophyllia that killed a Favia and was working on a Frogspawn before I moved it.

    I assume he meant the only euphyllia. Non related LPS are not friends.

It is SO COOL to turn things off and on in my tank using my computer!

Just finished ordering the apex and accessories. Man was that expensive!

    Yeup, they are clever how they suck you in at the lower price points and then the first thing you want to do is get some other probe or more outlets as soon as you get your main unit!

    As an AI owner, she gets kind of jobbed because there is absolutely no reason to buy a full apex since the you need a VDM to connect to the goofy AI interface cable. I blame AI.
