Bro, simply read RC rules again. No sense complaining about it. Like the staff told you, if you are not satisfied simply move on.

I have thoroughly enjoyed my tank since I last posted. Well, last before the previous post. I have not touched anything. Other then add food and refill some water. Everything else has been on complete auto pilot.

I am interested to see what the ATS looks like. It has been running the previous schedule with 0 cleanings or removal. Ha!

Life has been hell between highly important work projects and home projects and family time. I have also been working on getting back into my other passion of powerlifting having been laid off from it since injuring my back severely twice in 2014 and 2016. I had to cut down on something and it was unfortunately these reefer things. As I decided I needed my tank to just clear my mind for the time being and not for crowding it.

I'm back on track with my lifting and one work project is coming to a close soon but have two other major ones still on going but they are awesome and exciting. Home projects are never ending especially with summer coming up.

I am looking forward to getting my tank back under the microscope though.

Just took these earlier tonight. Still haven't touched anything. I just may let it go a year of doing nothing but adding water. Maybe work will have calmed down by then.

is my count correct? are there 3 gyres in that 180?

I have one gyre that I'll be using in a 125, should I consider adding another? the one I have can go up 5000gph I figured that was plenty for a 125 but now that I'm seeing that you have 3 on your tank, I'm starting to question that theory

Yep. 3 gyres.

Top right side is full 100% 24/7 going across right to left.
Top back left pulses 24/7 30% to 60% I think. It runs 24/7
Back left vertical alternates forward to backward 4 times a day based on the tidal cycles influenced by the moon.

Nothing much. I still need to clean my ATS at some point. I think it's now been a year since I've done so. I did change out my filters on my ro/di. I love the Gapper from buckeye hydro. Has been one of my favorite purchases to date along with my MTC skimmer.

FTS from tonight

Jason long time no chat, how is the skimmer working for you? Looks very effective.

Thanks. The MTC MVX is amazing and absolute work horse. I have 0 desire to ever try out another skimmer. With the extension tube to bring it up to around 42" allows it to handle the bigger 784 mazzei injector and bigger pump. Still running it with the Jebao 18000.

With the neck cleaner and drain to the Davey Jones skimmate locker I haven't touched it in over a year. The locker has a pump in it that I switch on each week to drain it to a floor drain in the next room.
