I have my four blues on one switch so I can have a total blue phase. I have the purples mixed in with my whites.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

If you go to www.purewaterclub.com they have a float valve and a coresponding cutoff valve for sale. It would work with any RO/DI

I like the blue phase, that's what I had done with mine. I put the 2 blues on one switch and the other blue was with the 3 whites.

I was kinda thinking a purple with the whites but I hesitate cause I want to make sure the everyone in my tank gets the right spectrums they need. And if you read back, (lights and I don't get along lol) though I may make electricity and try to keep lights on at work, doesn't mean I know anything about it LOL.

Thanks, I'm kinda tired of waking up and finding I've flooded three rooms again. I hope those walls dry out and don't get mold inside them.

@Coffeewitch - I would end up with that mold lol, cause so YOU wouldn't have to worry about it. LMAO

Ok, I have my light back on my tank, gotta order a light bulb yet. I rewired the pulley with sturdy connections now so when I hook that up tomorrow that should be good. I need to get two more wire clamps first. So right now, fixture is cleaned up and sitting on top of tank.

RO water is mixing still. Got side tracked with 2 grandkids camping in my living room tonite, so since they are finally sleeping am going to get my water testing done and see where I'm at with my RO so I can do pwc tomorrow. Temp of RO is 77.2. LOL that was an easy glance.

All is well in Buffy's tank............so far..............knock on wood..........:bangh ead: lol

So I ordered a purple ATI bulb and a level cutoff for my RO/DI. Now maybe I won't flood anymore lol.

I have the lights finally hung safely and level. They are off to the left about 2 inches but when my stand is done that will be corrected.

Tested my water last night, all ok except Alk was 3.86 and Calcium was 460. I didn't test Mg as I fell asleep.

Hopefully will be able to do the pwc today. Missed yesterday.

Lots of little bubbles on most of the rocks in various places so am adjusting on my powerheads. There appears to be movement everywhere so don't know what is causing the bubbles yet.

Just being a new tank. They will slowly disappear. I had the same thing when I added new rock. Not to worry.

Glad you got what you needed. Flooding has got to suck. lol

I assume soon we will have a new FTS with the lights all properly hung?

Obviously - but once the new bulb arrives and is in. I don't have the phosphate reactor in and my phosphates were .2. I gotta check into my calcium and alk though.

Hahaha. I know she's a she. So I very well couldn't say she was a better man than I am. I don't think I could put up with the list of crap she is. I have a hard enough time not going postal at my job. And it's government so really what's so serious there?

I've got a bad attitude or a low tolerance for blatant BS. Probably both though.
