  1. https version of the site should be ok now.. you may need to clear your cache. http version still messed up, I asked them to just redirect to https (like it should have been anyways?)
  2. I found the possible issue, waiting on the hosting provider to implement. They assigned the ticket to someone, but nothing new from their end.
  3. We are working on the icon/logo/PM issue. We have a support ticket open. will update when we get more info. Pm's mysteriously just started working... but we'll be watching those still.
  4. testing brands are like religion... you use what you like. I use api for nitrates, alk, ca. simply because lower price point means more testing, and they are accurate enough if you have a good eye. i use redsea for mg, hana for phosphates. when things get squirly, i pull out the redsea alk or ca. for salinity, the hanna ones are best.. i tossed the refractometers looong ago. search a bit on here and you will find full threads on comparisons, and even some arguments. but at the end of the day... you use what you like.
  5. i'd suggest more frequent testing, check for variations/swings, specifically alk initially. always check at the same time every day. while this brand test kit isnt the best, its good enough to see swings that might be affecting you: https://smile.amazon.com/gp/product/B001D6Z7QW "they were good" is relative. while each param has an acceptable range, swinging from one end to the other in a short time will cause issues. For example, your alk dropping from 11 to 8 overnight, while its "in range and good" on paper, its bad to have drastic swings. same applies to salinity. also keep
  6. what are your water params? good starting point.

    So i was going through my thread trying to find my post about my water filters and I think i need to provide a ton of various updates. The axis of paly's war has somewhat spread, it has combined forces with GSP.... which totally sucks. orange sponge experiment failed, its just too slow. my turf scrubber is still working too well, nitrates hover at 5 while overfeeding. phosphates i cant get under 0.22, but nothing seems to be complaining too much. skimmer-neck cleaner worked for quite a while, but seems to bind more often now. I need to figure out a bearing system for it be

  13. i think mine acted up friday night... for about 4hrs. not sure if clearing the logs helped, or this fusion issue restoring helped (it doesnt list a date, just time)
  14. i had the same problem over the weekend. make sure you have logging disabled on all your outlets. delete older log files. https://forum.neptunesystems.com/showthread.php?8325-Is-it-possible-to-clear-the-log I deleted all up to last 30 days. this is the second time it's happened in 4-5yrs... its pretty random.

    Mini-PSA. when you clean your pumps/powerheads/etc... make sure to check your level sensors if you have any. I noticed by return pump blowing bubbles, my "sumplow" sensor didnt detect it. since its a saltwater environment, they are expected to fail.... these lasted about 4yrs. (not bad at all)
  17. only scientific way to know is to ask ty to touch one.

  20. frys, discount electronics, etc. some laptops run on 24v (well, most at 18v). https://amzn.to/2S7hVnD maybe theres an amazon listing w/ free one-day if you look harder? I'll dig through my power supply bin and get back to ya (maybe buy you some time to get the replacement)
  21. consider the investment you may attain over time in the tank. im a frugal one... just make sure your baseline water parameters will maintain & protect your investment.
