    I had already addressed the MG, BR and I so I feel pretty good about water quality.

    Do they give you suggested ways to fix the bad/red numbers?

    Yes, they give detailed instructions for dosing for each element to correct using Triton supplements of course.

    Did you previously have flow monitors installed? Can't wait to see the finished product and see how much water you are pumping through there

    So there is no documentaion available for the meters but I did some digging in the direct portal for the Apex and was able to change the flow meter type to ports and GPH to LPH settings, I had assumed this would be automatic. It is not and you need to define in the dashboard module setup. I did have a wierd thing where it would not take the settings but it sorted itself out. readings now are correct and I am happy. main tank flow is 1500 GPh and fishroom tank 500 GPH

    Yikes, so basically what you are saying is all they are good for is telling a person they have water going through a pipe, that is unless they get jammed up with precipitate or algae.

    Any reviews on the optical sensor? What are your plans with that?

    Let me know on the FMM and how you like and dislike it. I have had a lot of customers asking about them and gets confusing, if you can write some reviews that would be awesome! Tank is looking awesome and always love following this build.

    Well the new sump arrived this week and it was destroyed during shipping I have been waiting for 6 months for this new sump and was dissapointed that I am at ground zero again, the manufacturer has promised to ship a new sump in two weeks and we will see what happens.

    I have also struggled with the system since I took the AIO biopellets offline last year and have had a series of disease issues and a general lack of balance in the system. I am going to take the system down and reboot with new rock and other system changes once the sump arrives.
