If you're not happy with it I'll take it off your hands.

That's the same 1 I have. It's been working flawlessly for me.

Tank looks great. How do you keep your back glass so clean?

That dual shut off unit is the one that i have. The relay failed last week and they sent me a new unit at no charge. They wanted me to send the unit back but I told them that I would like to rewire the unit myself and got it in the mail in two days. Great service.

Well I think the tank is looking great considering the amount of time it has actually been set up. You've done well! I felt terrible when your wife called about the ATO. I had no way of getting out to the house that weekend my van was in the shop. I'm glad that Sean was able to get there so quickly!!

Appreciate all your help while I was gone, too. I finally got to see Sean this past weekend and heard all the stories. The ladies in the shop said how right after the phone call he immediately grabbed the shop vac and left within minutes. 10 minutes after he left they had an overflow in the shop. haha!

I still have no idea what happened to the ATO. I see no way 2 switches could have failed like that, so I suspect it had to be something in the relay. I just installed a new one from autotopoff.com a few days ago and so far so good there.

Really happy now with my autodosers too for Ca and Alk. I came back after a month gone to my water parameters being almost perfectly in check in terms of Ca and Alk. Ca has been running a little low since I first set it up, I need to get a seperate timer to dose them independantly so I can turn that up without increasing the Alk doses.

While I was at F&F I picked up a new acro colony, a red tuxedo urchin and a fire shrimp. Those were my "Welcome Home" gifts to myself. Pics sooner or later. The Shrimp stays in the rocks pretty much constantly, and the urchin is attacking that brown stuff I have in the tank, but it keeps getting stuck in his spines which cracks me up and he drags it all over the place with him.

One of my clams, while I was gone, buried itself down in the sandbed and attached it's foot on the bottom glass. I don't know how to get him freed up to move him safely since he's under the sand. His mouth is just barely above the sandbed and I'm worried he won't get enough flow and food like this, but like I said I don't know how to detach him under the sand. It's the really pretty blue and green one I got most recently too.

Yeah, huge difference to me. Time will tell what the corals think of it.
