I have 2 ADFs and they are a blast. Dumb as rocks and just about as blind. They need to come up for air occasionally and they strike funny poses. I love the,

I'd probably say about $300. You would be competing with the AquaController by these guys (http://www.neptunesys.com/), but i don't know if the device can fire relays. I think there is a market,...

a long time. weeks. WC every 3 days. I finally bought the Tetra SafeStart for some some ridiculous price and had a cycled tank in 36 hours. That stuff works.

I considered this. I've seen some clever designs that use relays and either a dedicated device like an irrigation timer or even an Arduino. In the future, that might be fun to put together but I just...

Just need a good timer!!

I have tried the coralife digital power center. It sucks. It resets itself at will. I've tried the little cheapo timers from Target. Sometimes they just don't "turn on".

What is the best solution?...

Thanks Natty and Sewingalot and moogoo. I hit it with the silicon and wrapped it in duct tape. I'll try passing water through it tomorrow. Then of course ordering a new part.
