And the two of them are always ready to help the club, members, non-member and others. When I heard of a church in need of someone to take care of a tank in need they were the first ones I looked too and they jumped right on it.

Such a contrast from those few individuals who seem to enjoy pounding the keyboards only to degrade others.

Yes! I am so happy with the way things are looking. Lots of great polyp extension !

The biggest problem now is not spending he kids college fund on exotic frags. ��

Michael, what did your salinity test at? To high, low?
Please share on what the issue/error was with your refractometer? It might be something some of us might want to look into ourselves as well.

Thanks,

Awesome set up by the way.

Yes - I wrote a little post called sale tale in the reef forum. The problem was a faulty apex probe, and to make matters worse, I used the probe calibration solution to calibrate my refractometer. That doesn't work as one is conductivity (the probe) and the other measures salinity. My SG was way down at 1.016
