My long awaited heater showed up today ,... a few days ago I realized that I ordered a 1000 watt heater instead of a 500 watt one which I should have ordered in the first place ,... chalk that one up to stupidity and gray hairs I guess,...anyways,at this point it didn't matter ,in went the new one and the tank's temperature has slowly started to climb back up to normal,luckily we've had some very hot weather out here and that's kept the tanks temperature at ,above or near normal the whole time.
I've caught that nasty flu bug that's been terrorizing the community,., arghhhhhh ,.... I've seen far too much of my couch ,blankets and old re runs on tv ,...can't wait until this passes so I can feel human again.

Dary's tank!

Feeling a lot better these days now,thanks,..... I was doing my pwc yesterday and noticed that the out flow from my reef octopus reactor for my gfo was painfully slow hmmmmm wonder how long that was going on ? I couldn't quite figure things out until I discovered the fitting ( after I broke it ) channels way down in size and that was pretty much clogged up with deposits ,... after a quick trip to duxieline's plumbing department thing we're back online again ,... always seems like something is going astray with these systems.
Anybody out there using chemical pure blue in their tanks ? I've been thinking about trying it in place of my carbon ,I used to use the regular chemipure for my tanks but somewhere down the line it sort of just disappeared from my system .

I've never used blue as it is one of their 'newer' products. I did like chemipure and chemipure elite when I used it though.

I have used Carbon off and on over the decades to try to reduce coral toxins in the water. I can't honestly say I saw much documentable evidence it worked. It makes sense to use it, but I don't all the time. My system is pretty efficient at removing nutrients from the water. I also stopped using Purigen and Phosguard. I just didn't see any benefits after using it for years. I use Rowaphos (sp) and that works well for P4 levels. I just got my last Triton test back and other than high lithium levels (few water exchanges and use of calcium chloride) everything checks out.
