Is it time to change your RO/DI filters? I date my system each time they are changed out, to help me keep track. They should be changed every six months, so I'm actually a month late in doing so. Whoops. However, the TDS reads zero, so there's no reason to worry, right?

I'll be speaking at the Marine Aquarium Expo in Orange County, California the first weekend in April. And while I'm there, Melev's Reef will be represented as well, with a real live booth! I'll have some of my products for sale there during those two days, and will be speaking about Aquarium Photography on Sunday at 2pm.

I had to do surgery: Vortech Battery Backup Surgery. ;)
This is what it looked like before I began.
And the wire the feeds the pump during a power failure.

This product has been around a while, but I didn't want to get it until it had its own cleaning magnet...
So I finally got one!
The scraper comes with one razor blade (double-edged), but I also got a 10-pack for back up.

Carbon helps maintain water clarity in my reef, and absorbs some chemicals the corals release as they fight for space on a daily basis. The following shows how I change out the carbon once it has been used up.
First, I disconnect it from its pump in the sump, and set it in the sink. I love the Phosban Reactor's rubber connections, which are simple to press in or disconnect.

A few days ago, my new PAR meter arrived. This is the newest one built by Apogee, which barely was released a month ago. I was going to purchase the regular one that we discussed for the Group Buy (on Reefcast.com), but one of my friends twisted my arm, and there you go. Thanks, Aaron. :D

After coming across this thread about a DIY denitrifier, I ordered the goods to build one myself.
What I did was run about 25' of red tubing before the denitrification system. The first cartridge is some sulfur-based media I got from a friend, and if the bag was what it came in, it is made by Sera.
