Glad things worked out when you caught it going. Makes me wish I had another heater now...

Glad you caught it before any major damage to the corals and fish. Had a quite Easter at home. Hope you had a nice Easter.

Better it failed open rather than failing closed and cooking the tank! It's always something.

It's actually hooked up to an independent controller which regulates when it's time to turn it on or not ,...so as long as that unit doesn't wig out it's good and for now the issue is solved , the new titanium heater from marine depot has arrived and it's plugged in and is working as it should,...just out of curiosity greg ,what are you running in your tank ? 800-1000 watts ?

Just finished up a major aquarium day ,... Replaced the gfo ,replaced the carbon ,cleaned out the turf scrubber etc which btw has been performing great, at first she seemed to take forever to produce a harvestable screen of algae but maybe it was just that I was impatience , but she does in fact produce a nice Goooey clump in a couple of weeks or so.
The new heater has performed perfectly since I've installed it yesterday ,one feature that this one has over the last one is a little red indicator light that lets you know when she's in the heating mode ,..it's a nice feature to be able to look at the temp on the cooler and watch it turn off or on in relationship with the tank temp.
I also took advantage of the marine depot ad that you prob all got and bought myself a aptasia wand , one good thing for me is that marine depot is just up the coast so whatever I order today will be here tomorrow ,..brs on the other hand seems to take forever . I will still use the laser that we bought last year but figured that another toy wouldn't hurt anything .
Time to make up some ato water and some pwc water for next week .

Paul B, over on another forum, has a +40 year old reef and he invented the wand. He's a cool guy. I bought a wand and like the laser, had mixed results. They work, but you have to nuke every little piece of the anemone, sometimes more than once or it recovers.

I haven't zapped any aptasia for a long time so I'll have plenty of targets to try it out on ,... Nothing like Doug had at his gym tank tho but enough for a limit or two anyways,..btw , when do you leave on your trip ?

End of June. Long time away. Been digging out all the old gear and testing regulators. For the first time I will be diving with my iPhone 6 Plus and a fleet of GoPros.
