When I put the foam covers on I knocked them out of alignment and it made a grinding type noise so I know they are aligned. Ill toy with them still I'm sure but the dull hum when they pulse is actually kinda nice compared to the "whack" sound of my koralias on a wave maker. The nem has opened right up now and actually looks like a classic bubble tip with the coke bottle shaped tentacles. The blueberry gorgonian has all its polyps out now too. An added bonus is that I just fed and the clowns are touring around and feasting and the BTA took some plankton also (Pacifica plankton that is). The feed mode on the vortechs freaked the clowns out though it was kinda funny. Now I'm gonna look more into running the vortechs and figure out how to make a wave.

No apex for me and after buying the vortechs I think even thinking of an apex would get me neutered, beaten, neutered again before being kicked to the curb lol. Not really my wife is pretty supportive as she knows my reef tank means a lot to me but I would definitely be in the dog house. Maybe one day but not any day soon.

Alright folks, I just shot a video update. The section on the sump is dark and you can't make anything out so ignore it. You can hear the mp40 when I show the ricordia but as I say the sound is minimal.

Well apparently my engineer goby likes my new clownfish. He is out and about more than I've ever seen him combined. He is swimming end to end with the clowns. He's gotten big, when I bought him he was only a couple inches long and now he is about 6. Has his big boy stripes now too. Also, my blueberry gorg is looking absolutely amazing. This thing is so stunning and I'm loving it. The nem is open and inflated and hasn't moved an inch. Other than that everything is thumbs up.

Nice man I'm glad it's looking up! The goby was probably just happy to have some company to swim around with. Now time to get those stylos and millis!
