    You can do camera on that thing

    I think I remember seeing that. I have a wyze cam already that I set up when I go out of town.

    Maybe once I get it set up I might do a cam that's more permanent.

    Looks great. I love my profilux 3 back in the day.

    Snail laid eggs on another snail:

    My anemone split while I was on vacation. Notice the absence of clownfish in either one of the anemones. They are starting to get close, I think...

    Mandarin just because she was there and looking photogenic:

    I installed the profilux before I went out of town last week. I was planning on just unboxing and making sure everything worked, but it ended up being so simple, that I decided to configure everything and somewhat haphazardly install it. I’m still programming some features, but it’s generally running what I needed.


    For those with aquarium controllers, do you keep it under your sump? I wouldn’t be terribly concerned about it being under my tank, but I’m more likely to dump water on it in it’s current location...

    I’m my cabinet I had a wet area that housed the sump and dry area for electronics.

    Probably a good idea. I still need to take my sump out and put it on heavy duty sliders. I may see if there's a way that I can create a dedicated dry spot for the controller as part of the reconfiguration.

    Out of curiosity what did you use to keep the dry area... dry. In my stand I have a similar setup where I created a space for "dry" (electronics) however you still need to pass wires from wet to dry, now I got rubber desk grommets so that I can minimize the opening while still making it convenient to get cables through, but some amount of moisture will eventually get in there simply due to humidity. Now I did think I could use a fan and push dry(er) room air into the dry area and the over pressure would naturally prevent/slow humid air from going in that direction, plus it has the added benefit of making sure the air doesn't get too hot in there, but that's not something that I quite implemented yet.

    Technically the dry side was not IN the cabinet. It was on the other side of the wall behind the cabinet. I used an exterior outlet cover to pass things through.
