The spouse sent me this picture with the caption
Quote:
The red pilot light (front) means AC power (timer) on. The red switch (side) means 24 VDC (solenoid) on. The green pilot light (side) means fan on. The fan is on an external switch since I don't have a transformer temperature switch handy.
It seems the CO2 system has been upgraded.

Unfortunately, I also got this picture

This is why you don't turn the CO2 off for three days!

That's one of the reasons I don't have co2 yet, my old farmhouse only has so many outlets and I have to move some stuff. Wife only allows so much room for fish tanks.

Ah. Yeah, the outlet is a double duplex gfci. The cubes I had never seen before, but they're grounded (three prong). Each one has the filter and heater for one tank so I unplug the cube instead of the individual components.

This house was built in 1928, so we've had to redo a lot of wiring. This outlet was installed specifically for the tanks. The cubes might be iffy, but I'm confident in the outlet.

The transformer is its own thing. The spouse built it. It might have a separate timer for the lights, but I haven't seen it in person yet to say for sure. Much better than the first attempt at a solenoid, which used AC power. Hahaha

Edited to add:
That shelf is the one I had written about a bit ago because the spouse had planned to drill into the stand with the fish in the tank still. The thinking was that it would be less stressful than draining the tank and moving it. I have been told that they spent the renovations in a clean mixing bowl, except the kuhlis because it's impossible to catch kuhlis.

You know more about your setup than we do, just want everything safe. Your spouse sounds handy, even though I've worked around electronics a lot I couldn't do that.
Sure nice to have someone who knows what they're doing around.
