    Hey everyone I wanted to post the website that I use to program those cheap BRS 1.1 mL per minute dosing pumps with your apex. What this does is spit out a code that you can easily copy and paste into your apex fusion for whatever additive you have.

    Thanks Adam, I'm going to bookmark this in case I ever need it. Once you understand what each of the three oscillation numbers mean it's actually pretty easy to write the programming.

    Here's mine for Alk (top of the hour) (numbers are low do to low stocking after my dino battle).

    Fallback OFF
    OSC 000:00/002:30/057:00 Then ON
    If pH > 8.40 Then OFF

    Calcium is the same except the first number is 030:00

    Awesome! I guess you missed how the tank is doing but since the meeting it got a few new toys under the hood!

    Thanks I really like it! I have had it for a bit and its worked flawlessly. But I can also say the BRS 1.1 mL under it is a machine and works as good today as it did the day I took it out of the box.

    Looks good I have the dos also so simple to use. How does the acro power work for you

    I like the acro power I think it works. I will have to say that I can't say its making a world of a difference on the new 180 since it doesn't have many sps corals that have much size to them to say the colors are really popping because of it. BUT on the last tank I could tell you that 110% amino acids helped my sps colonies grow and stay colored liked highlighters.
