    Finally got back my first ICP test and looks like I need to start some dosing on a few things, namely iron, cobalt, iodine, chromium, manganese, vanadium and zinc. I have recipes for making solutions for these, so time order some of the ingredients and get them mixed up. Only need a very small increase on each of those, so shouldnt be to hard, and this also confirmed that my saliferts are be right on, especially with MG. I have known for a while my MG was way to high, and I actually removed all the re-mag from my calcium reactor as a result. Hopefully by the time I retest it will drop to more reasonable levels.
    I also tested my RO water and happy to report everything came out as perfect zeros.

    Finally got my 3d printer up and running again. Took a bunch of upgrades to get it to print decent again. So first thing I printed was a tube design I had been working on for my Neptune AFS. I actually bought the AFS at the Denver Macna many years agao, and finally took it out of the box and put it to work. Tube is simple enough and made to fit through the hole in my lids. Works great so far. Will likely refine the design a bit and then reprint it in PETG instead of PLA as the PETG will last longer. I will likely also make a few designs to fit over different kinds of tanks, like a standard and euro braced tanks too.

    Finally got the prototypes for my flow nozzles done. Been working on these for a while before the printer broke down. Finally its printing great and I was able to finish the prototypes. These are printed in multiple pieces and then each piece snaps together, and will go on my closed loop returns, as well as the main return. I made multiple different outlets on them to suit different placements in the tank. These are currently printed in PLA, which isnt very durable overall, so now the next step will be to print them in PETG which is more durable and food safe.

    Looking great! 3d printers are so useful. What brand PETG have you been using?
