    They shipped the nem out a day early. I wasn't expecting it and wasn't home to receive it. It wasn't until late that day that I noticed it sitting on the front step. the heat pack was expended and it didn't look good. I removed most of it's water before I started dripping it and it seemed to respond. It stayed right where I placed it in the tank and the few days I had it, I didn't see it feed. It would turn itself inside out but then recover after a few hours. I noticed it free floating in the tank but by the time I was able to get a net it vanished. I should of pulled the nem out before that but I remained hopeful. I don't think this nem passed by any error of mine but from the shipper sending it out a day early. Really bummed me out. Thanks for asking

    I really like the Lunar System Module from Neptune. It installed easily and works great with their moon phase. Right now the moon is rising at approx. 430am and sets 1630. I can't wait to see it work night. My hopes is that it will get my DT set more to a real sun and moon phase and get some of my wards to spawn.

    20170918_164315.jpg 20170918_164407_016.jpg Well it's up and running again. FINALLY. Redesigned the landscape a little. I took a video but seems mp4 isn't supported. It's been running since April, What do you think of the new look? I've added a little more to the system, a 35 gallon tank to hold some of the rock. I custom built a sump (not sure I'd do that again) that holds 65 gallons. I was given a precision marine bullet 3 skimmer that i've added and love. I've upgraded all my pumps as well to: an EcoTech L1 pump that runs the skimmer and my reactors, two EcoTech M1s and a Jebao that runs the 35 gallon. Talk about quiet running DT. Several times we've gone to check to make sure everything was still working and I'm still not using a chiller.

    Looks pretty good to me. Everything feels nicely placed.

    What was preventing your system from running before? Don't know if I want to dig through those pages for the answer. ^_^;
