I used distilled because everybody said, then I just started using tap. I noticed no difference for me (no difference in mold or anything), and it's convenient.

Ha! Well, if I made something that caused somebody to go out and buy a bunch of stuff, it'd be kind of a jerk move to suddenly drop that. :)

And I still own a Satellite Plus for my new office tank...

The Apex can schedule power, do temp, run dosing pumps (not sure about the cheap DIY ones though), and can probably do a lot more than this can (like PH and other stuff). I don't think it can ramp...

I live in Apple Valley, MN. How did you test your PH? Right from the tap? If you let it off gas for 24 hours, I bet you are PH of over 8. That's what the tap water in AV is (8.2) after it off gasses...

My Fluval 306 is rated at about 300 GPH. I put 1/2" hose barbs on my reactor and noticed it choked the flow. I swapped them out o 3/4" fittings and the flow came back. It can make a difference. I'd...

Nice! You knew better than I. I'm glad mine exhibited it's issue in testing, and not after I had gone to work for the day. Where is your Aqua Shield thread anyway? The details of it?

I saw the aquashield. They are cool! However, for what I was building, it wouldn't have worked right, and I still would have had to stack another protoshield anyway. The D48-53 pins and whatever is...

I think the Ludwigia Red will survive. All of the big leaves have dropped, but each plant has 4 or 5 off shoots with new growth. It'll take a long time to grow them back, I think I can save them.

Yes, you are getting 100% diffusion, unless you have a big bubble in the reactor itself. If it's clear, you can see that. If it's not clear, you can push the release valve on top to see how much CO2...
