I believe there are some bugs to be worked out still. I notice that I'm listed as a "Premium Member", but I'm not. I'll leave it at that.

Please remove the designation. Thank you.

"Additional Functionality". I've always loved that phrase. :rolleyes: In this case, it appears to mean "the functionality that you used to enjoy, but can't now unless you pay up!"

It appears it HAS been rolled out. From this post, and the fact that my PM box is now "100% full" (even though I haven't received any new PMs), it appears the announcement is a little behind the...

Being new is fine... we were all new at some point. But if you can't tell us what the coral even is, then it's tough to give you suggestions on how to keep it alive! :) (Pictures might help - hint,...

When you say your heater is "set for 78 degrees" do you mean that's what the knob says it's set to? Or have you verified that it truly turns on and off...

Even in a hot room, a fan can really do wonders. Evaporation is your friend!

Heater setting seems OK - just wanted to make sure it wasn't set too high to start with!

Water parameters look great! And yes... KH and alkalinity are the same thing.

Just move the rocks around, the fish won't mind the sandstorm. They'll probably get a little spooked, but they'll get...

As someone earlier mentioned, get a clip-on fan and have it blow it across the top of your tank. Put it on a timer so it's only on during the part of the day when it gets the hottest. You can easily...

If what you saw was truly ich, it's still there. It'll be there as long as there are fish in the tank so it can survive.

Recalibrate it using 53mS calibration fluid for salinity probes. That fluid will calibrate to 35ppt or between 1.026 and 1.027. Then you should be good to go. Calibrating at 1.000 doesn't really do...

29 what? If it's 29ppm, that's beyond the Federal limits in the US for tap water. But "mineral water", I believe, falls under different regulations since it's "natural" and probably avoids major...

The Visitherm heaters - which are the glass ones - are NOT effected by the recall. While they might not be the most accurate (but then, what heater is?!), they're at least safe and...

I'm confused because I didn't think any of the Coralife Aqualights had timers. Are you talking about a built in timer? Exactly what Coralife fixture do you mean?
