Very interesting thread. Seen you haven't been on for a while but hopefully you come back and give an update. I was a little depressed when you said you were selling the 180, then I saw your 270 and was happy.

Is this your upgrade to the 270?

Murphy's law says that anything that can go wrong will go wrong! Just read this incredible story. With advances in science and cloud technology, hopefully one day we will be able to remotely monitor and control the reef tank system more economically and efficiently. Till then we can just be extra cautious. I am lucky to have a LFS within 1 mile of me. I may utilize them to baby sit my tank if I ever am on vacation.

This is a neat thread.
Definitely shows the power of perseverance.

Hopefully Buddy Pine will post again sometime soon and let us know how things are going.

Wow, I was devastated at the crash. Always that bit of equipment... Mine was the ATO top off tube falling into the tank and crashing it. Hope he replies.
