Two days ago my JBJ regulator solenoid bit the dust and now today one of my Coralife power center timers is broken. Hope this is not an omen of things to come!
I don't know about your solenoid but I wouldn't worry about your Coarlife timer going out as being an ominous sign. It's more of an ominous sign of where Coarlife will go if they don't up their quality control. They are pretty much supposed to break, which sucks because it's a useful product.
That said, can't wait for updates, love this tank.
