    I would of gtabbed some of you, but i need to wait for this algae to go. The 3 frags i have are constantly getting snagged with algae that has released of the rocks. Its a complete pain at the moment.

    I get that too sometimes. Algae hanging on the tips of hystrix. Annoying.

    Whenever you're ready mate I'm sure I'll
    Have some. You're welcome to a bit.

    Sooooo... alarm went off on my Pacific sun doser last week. It beeps like crazy to tell you that you're out of liquid. Normally not a problem. Using the lap top I just refill and reset it. Job done.

    Not today.

    Won't let me connect. No matter what I do. So no dosing at all since then. I've tried two computers and every combination I can find to connect it. No dice. Today I had pac sun beam in To my lap top and try and sort it. Still no dice.

    So now I need to send it back to Poland to be repaired!! What a disaster. Bloody amazing doser until this point.

    So no I obviously can't send it over the weekend so I'm going to have to try and manually dose and send it asap Monday.

    All stock has seemed unaffected thus far but I'm looking at my big rainbow pocci now and it may be stripping a bit from the bottom. Hard to say. May just be me. I'll get on more accurate dosing tonight.

    Bummer. Tank is in the best nick it has ever been in.

    Technology is only great when it works. Hope the manual dosing works in the meantime

    Well mate. Is going pretty well really. The broken doser has resulted in my alk dropping to 5.2 but I'm buffering it back up.

    Going to get a kamoer x4 doser instead I think.

    I still need some more fish and coral though.

    How is yours now? Improving?

    Little clean up of the tank today. Took a video but the option to upload a video seems to have disappeared on tapatalk. Anyone know what that's about?

    Had a good look at my mp40qds whilst cleaning. Both are badly rusted so I need to email ITC. I believe they sort you replacement wet sides so we will see what happens there.

    My pac sun doser has been posted to Poland now. Hopefully have tht back soon. [MENTION=22376]Scott[/MENTION] is going to buy that off me for his tank and all being well [MENTION=12197]Burscough Aq[/MENTION] should have a delivery of kamoer x4s in tomorrow so I'll go grab one of those. Manually dosing is a complete ball ache and making my numbers less than stable. Thus far no adverse effects. Tank has been sub 7dkh for a few weeks now .

    looks prety good jamie. just needs some more coloured sticks in there haha.
    from what iv heard they need to be under warranty for itc to replace them but I could be wrong. hope they get sorted out it's not the kind of thing you expect from high end equipment.

    You need to do me a frag of everything you have pal!

    Not sure about the warranty thing. I know loads who have had replacements. Ben [MENTION=18127]StarfishEnterprise[/MENTION] has had one replaced 3 times I think!

    Whats wrong with them rusting a little.... isnt it just the iron portion of the stainless leaching FE

    All stainless steel has the capacity to rust unless its the hugely expensive and refined grades but i use GFO to absorb phosphate that simplified is rust isnt it?
    Iron oxide hydroxide
    Suppose its a good way to get a free wetside replacement tho Hysterical

    Got myself a Kamoer x4 doser after a bit of match making by mad [MENTION=22376]Scott[/MENTION]. Got it set up in about 4mins. Love the app. So no more manual dosing for moi! Happy days.
