Ahh I didnt consider the apex. That alone means enough to get the radions in my opinion. One module and youre done. Plus the upgrade in the future, I would only worry that the version you buy would still be available when you do eventually upgrade. They are on the 3rd version in as many years pretty much.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

what kills me is that BRS has the gen 2 Radions $150 off...2 units that's $300 off... and I refuse to spend that kind of money 6 weeks before Christmas. hopefully Ill get lucky enough come January and hit an after-Christmas sale or something. I also LOVE the fact that I will have complete and total control over my Radions...wirelessly. that, to me is worth it. sucks I didn't upgrade the lights 8-10 months ago because I could have potentially got in on the reeflink beta testing

went to do my nightly equipment check and noticed this.... wow.


I know that it takes a bit for new skimmers to "break-in" but this is pretty crazy. it seems as though every week the skimmate gets darker and darker.

I'm jealous of your skimming huma. My skimmer is hit or miss and I'm not sure why. It'll do great for a week and when it gets emptied the bubbles don't even reach the cup anymore and need some major adjusting at the pump to get it to work a little bit. Frustrating. My next thought is to make a funnel hookup to empty it like changing my oil so the seal isn't broken. Just wish it worked constantly, then maybe my algae issue wouldn't be as bad.

I was pushing for a lemonpeel angel but we all know what my track record is with angels...and a yellow tang was $66. so that's a no.

sniperhank, i know your pain, my last skimmer was like that and it was a vertex, so brand quality cant be blamed, idk what causes that. i do get it every once in awhile but its seemed to of settled in decently for now. once i add the auto neck cleaner im sure ill have to adjust.
