    Looking amazing! The sand wile likely calm down a bit when the bacteria begins to grow. I’d leave the lights off for now, unless you are wanting them on for a few to look at...

    I will definitely leave it as an option if things stay the same. On the third day or it staying put. Removed the transitions from the program, completed a factory reset, and then ensured this pump didn't have a drastic change in percent power between modes.

    Double side tape on the dry side is a great idea. Wish I had thought about it with mine. I understand the worry about taking paint off if you move it.

    I used acrylic sheets on the dry side and cut out circles the size of the dry side. I mounted that acrylic up against the glass so it supports the dry side so it can’t slide down.

    Not sure if that would help your issue with the magnets not holding well enough. It would take some pressure off. You could even strap across the back of the dry side so it can’t fall out.

    The only issue then is securing the acrylic in place.....and you’re back to the double side tape issue. :) Or get creative securing the acrylic. It’s a more complicated solution.

    I like the double side tape option. Simple. Smart.

    Two votes for the tape. If the pump falls of again, tape it is! Just have to learn how to paint glass if I ever move it, good learning experience.

    Definitely low profile tape.
    That foam stuff is way to thick.

    I’ve been using carpet installation tape for other projects. Super sticky and super thin.

    Perks of just finishing the basement our selves. Have a ton construction tools, parts, and items. I will make sure to let you all know if it falls off again and then I tape. So far going on 4 days with no issues.

    Fuge has some life! Algae and pods are in. I honestly like the look of small amount of macros, to bad that will not be a long term thing.

    Ulva is starting to take off.It is unfortunate that there is no tangs in my house to feed it too, feels like a waste to just through it all away. Fufe 4.JPG

    I don't think you need to throw it. I'd let it take over that half of the fuge. AsyAs prune it you could dry it and store it in a Ziploc until you have tangs!
