  13. I know on my unit the waste water continues for 5-10 minutes before it reaches the back pressure required to shut the water flow off. It does work but maybe give it more time to shut off(hopefully that’s it).
  14. Are you interested in the large Vlamingi Tang I have for sale?

  15. We will plan to attend. I may also have an extra 40g breeder and a few other tanks laying around
  16. This is the tank that started it all- my 22 gallon rimless peninsula display with a 10 gallon refugium. ❤️ It’s about 2 years old with LEDs, MP10, and an algae scrubber as the main hardware. Currently, I have one naked clownfish (David Pumpkins) and one Pajama Cardinalfish (Gary). There’s an unnamed clown in the refugium temporarily, but she’ll be moved soon. I especially love my leather corals lately, but they may be tied with the zoanthids as my fave coral in the tank. Of course, my bubble tip anemone gets a lot of my attention because it’s my first anemone and I’m still worried it’s going to go nuclear any day. But it’s been in there for a few months and has just been happy as a clam 🤷🏽‍♀️ If anyone needs chaeto at the meeting, I’ll be more than happy to share.
  17. also if you go to spectrapure's website there are manuals to show how it is to be set up to double check yours. Just fine your model. https://www.spectrapure.com/product-manuals/
  18. This is the auto shut off valve. It looks like you have one. Check to make sure it is installed properly. There is a "in" and "out" marked on them. The valve may need to be replaced.
  19. Your photo looks normal to me. When you run the unit waste water will be produced so you’re supposed to have waste water coming out. The valve in the photo appears to be a membrane flush valve. Now if that is on, the waste water will be coming out very strong. Plus you won’t produce clean water at a proper rate. I don’t know anything about an automatic shutoff you say you need. Nothing on mine is automatic. Turn a valve open it runs turn the valve closed it’s off. 🤷🏽‍♂️
  20. The LANSING SUMMER Coral Show & Frag Swap (Lansing, Michigan) is just 5 Days Away !!!!!!!! Invite All of Your Reefing Friends Sunday, July 21
  21. Hello everyone! I’m glad to host August’s meeting and show you all what we’ve been up to down in good ol’ Gosport. First, let me explain the location 🙃 I’m having trouble uploading photos; hopefully I’ll figure that out later. Our house is the old Gosport Bank that was built in 1867. After 15 years or so of renovation, we’re still working on it. 😪 In the basement is my art gallery/studio called Grey Dog Gallery, after our trusty guard dog Avalanche. The main floor is the least renovated so far (it needed the most demo work) and the top floor is where we live. The meeting will be on the main floor, so come on in through the main door. Now a little about the aquarium! Shortly after I opened the gallery and was spending many hours a day down there, I decided it was time to get back into the reef hobby after a 5 year hiatus. I set up a 22 gallon open-top peninsula with a 10 gallon refugium. It was a great way to take breaks from painting and re-focus my eyes. Soon, regulars starting coming in to check on the progress of the aquarium and we started jokingly calling it the Gosport Aquarium: the world’s smallest public aquarium. I loved telling people about the science behind it and basically just liked talking reef again! (I worked at Petco for 5 years during college, which is where the reef bug bit me. I know, Petco 😆) Well, one day my husband, Brian, made the mistake of telling me I could use the coal room for more aquariums. Since the coal room is right behind the gallery, it was perfect! Perfect except it was storage for his tools, (you could barely walk through) had bare brick walls that flaked, had no ceiling, and was missing a window. Not to mention it had a single electrical outlet. But it had concrete floors that Brian had poured years earlier and the sump pit for the building. After a year or so of cleaning the room up enough to set some refugiums in to marinate, here we are! The Gosport Aquarium Expansion, as I’m calling it, will have 2 zoomed low boys (50gal) with 40 gallon display refugiums and a 160 gallon with a 75 gallon display refugium. I’m still missing one 40 gallon breeder, so if anyone has a lead on one... 😉 Of course, I imagine the Aquarium will expand back out into the gallery, which has become more of a working studio anyway. In the interest of keeping this short, I’ll cut myself off now and add more later. I really can talk about this project forever.
  22. So I have a spectrapure 90, RODI unit, that came with a float valve. When I use it, the waste water keeps rolling out. I know I need an automatic shut off installed, but it appears I have one. Am I missing something? https://photos.app.goo.gl/PGvFyZftYRk1QtMS6
  23. Our August meeting will be held at the Gosport Aquarium in Gosport Indiana on Saturday August 10th. As an added bonus this is the same day as the Gosport town festival. The Festival starts at 9am and runs throughout the day. Our meeting will run from 4-6. Lets make a day trip out of this anyone interested in car pooling try to coordinate it through the thread. The address for the meeting is 27 East Main Street Gosport, Indiana 47433 Club this meeting will be worth the trip just to check out what Niki and Brian have accomplished.
  24. BIG shout out to Mike for getting this put together and making it a success! I'd also like to thank the sponsors for their patience (stupid traffic set us behind) and the awesome deals they extended to our club members for the trip. Premium and Modern had some amazing livestock. I hadn't been to the Reef in quite some time (live on the south side) but was really impressed with their salt area revamp. They had some really nice stock, and the layout is user friendly. This was a great way to get to know some of the members that don't come to every meeting, and would definitely be interested in doing it again.
  25. I want to thank our hosts for Saturday Premium Aquatics, Modern Aquatics and the Reef. Each store had unique deals for the members that were on the trip. Everyone was very patient with traffic that put us way behind schedule and caused us to rearrange our schedule Mike
