    Now I need to get the light configured through the AI app. Anyone running a prime or have suggestions on what settings to use?

    I use the prime on one of my small tanks. I have a couple interesting settings I could send you to try.

    AI hydra settings thread on reef central. You can down load the file and import it. Worked pretty good when I had hydra 26hd. I think wazzel is the guy that set it up.

    I'm giving this one a try. I'm still figuring out how to use the app so going with a preset for now. Screenshot_20190528-191734_Chrome.jpg Screenshot_20190528-191716_myAI.jpg

    I downloaded this one and I really like it so far. It's pretty wild looking though. Screenshot_20190528-194620_myAI.jpg

    Have to ditch that preset lighting schedule because my daughter (she is 8 months) woke up screaming at 430am. I don't think she liked the blue lights that were ramping up. I need a schedule that starts later and is off by 8pm.

    Where did you download this one?

    I found it in a thread on R2R I think. I scoured the internet trying to find schedule downloads. They aren't easy to find. I read that the fluctuating ones are good for a reason that I can't think of at the moment. I came across this one and really like it so far.

    I'm going to remove the cost for the upgrade pump that did not fit. Is everyone okay with that? I repurposed the pump in my other system. I'm also tempted to leave it as a line item in the overall cost as an 'oops' because that so often happens when building a new system.

    It wouldn't bug me if you didn't deduct it. It never saw water or ran with the system.

    Wouldn’t bother me at all but on a side note you could could keep it as a learned lesson haha.

    Still not much happening over here. We were traveling last week. Only adding top off water as needed (manually like in the good old days). And just a single pinch of food back on 5/30.

    Another pinch of food today. Wife said she wants something flowy like a hammer coral and zoas. I was thinking octospawn might be cool.
    I need to get the AI app on wife's phone so she can turn off the light during naptime.

    On day 22 I added some more ceramic media that I pulled from the sump of my 90 gal system. 20190616_174242-1200x1600.jpg
