Once again it's been ages since I've posted anything here,... As I said before , sometimes life just gets in the way ,... Tank wise ,very little going on. .. I've finally settled from tropic Marin PRO reef salt to their REGULAR grade reef salt with seemingly much better and easier parameters for me and my tanks needs. The one weird thing that did happen was almost a disaster for my little underwater world, typically , I use between 10-13 gallons of top off water each week + - with a constant temperature of 78 degrees ,.... Last week I noticed that my top off water usage was very little , that kind of puzzled me and got the wheels turning . Then I noticed that the tanks water temperature had plummeted from 78 down to a little over 70 degree OH you know what !!!!
My investigation revealed that my blueline 500 watt titanium heater had stopped working ,.... I pulled out the heater and plugged it into the wall outlet and found out that yup it's dead , I put into service my little 250 watt heater that I use to heat my pwc
water and slowly over the last few days it's gotten the tanks water temp back to within a fraction of a degree of what it's suppose to be , I did order a new heater from marine depot which is arriving today ,.... I know some guys run a pair of heaters in their tanks just to advoid this issue but that blueline heater had been humming along flawlessly for years, I did manage to get it to work for a moment by banging it in the counter but she quickly slide back into death again, musta been an internal short or something?
Most everything else tank wise is doing ok , a few mishaps with various corals etc but overall things are ok ,....hope everyone had a quite,peaceful Easter
