Pretty incredible the difference, isn't it? (If you watched all of the videos)

Hahah! Exactly. Or your wife finds hotel key cards in your wallet "explain yourself, what are these"

"they're to clean the tank with"

"Riiiiight. That darn tank always gets pulled into our arguments somehow. Good excuse"

Haha!

For sure! Again, it wears out relatively quickly on the tougher coralline and harder algae. It's worth it once it's all gone, sometimes it feels like "I literally just out the new one on". But it's worth it once it's gone! Easy to maintain, not requiring new blades so often.

Mr and Mrs Reef - 290g in wall build

So much for having the AWC up and running. Was in the fish room while it was running yesterday and the new saltwater pump (DOS) was skipping, like it wasn't getting any water. Checked the intake for it and it looks fine. When you manually make the pumps go (much slower than when doing the 6 gallons) it works fine.

Looks like I know what I'm working on this weekend!

Didn't get to the AWC this weekend. Jeremy and I came down with a nasty bug of the stomach flu that laid us up for the past 2 days. I'm traveling for work today through Sunday, looks like AWC is turned off until we figure out what's going on with the pump that's "skipping".

me too! I got the tunze scraper last winter and the blades for acrylic are expensive and wear out so fast. and the performance was so so. When I used my larger aquarium magnet on the outside it improved. worked alot like her flipper!
