    Skimmernis finally running and the big heater has been moved to the sump

    I do think I will be running a heater in the main tank though. My basement is cold.... I am gonna stuff it behind the rocks only 300 watts too if there's a failure it shouldn't cook it

    Looking good!

    2cents, I wouldn't bother with the heater in the tank, just put the Apex temp probe in the tank.

    +1

    I did this also when my tank was in the basement. I also purchased another pm1 and temp probe for a backup to ensure that I wouldn't cook my sump in case the return pump stopped working (or something along those lines).

    I also had a secondary return pump on an outlet that was off on my apex in case something like that came up and I couldn't make it home.

    Redundancy and back ups are so crucial!

    I'm literally in love with how this is playing out. Thanks to the help of Cody ( anarchy) and keith854 plus the support of all the local reef shops like aquatica/Reefwise and Dave at AP! After spreading the love the last 6 months we got to this point. Can't wait to see her really take off and get my frag system up on the main tank and in the fish room. I follow the method of KISS it's worked well so far don't overthink shit! Now just To program my apex ha ha who wants to help?!?
