I was able to get some killer frags from David Ball, aka @dball711 at the meeting today. I dipped them in Bayer, and within a hour I am seeing PE. The frags are great. I can't wait for them to grow out into colonies.
ATK from Neptune is garbage. I would never trust them on my systems again. There are some really good ones out there, Tunze has been working perfectly for 10+ years, never 1 issue, I would suggest looking into one, it can save you a LOT of money and not break the bank buying one!I come home from work yesterday and I find bubbles in my tank. Usually this means that my return section in my has low ater level. I checked and sure enough, so I check my ATK and find the pump not working. I checked the FMM module and it is sending 24 vdc to the pump. The PMUP v2 pump is only 5 months wet, is that, UGH!!! I will have to buy a new pump to replace the bad one.
I had a Tunze 3155 on my last tank and never had an issue with it, I may go back to the Tunze, we will see.ATK from Neptune is garbage. I would never trust them on my systems again.

Depending on age, you can put a ticket in and get Neptune to replace. Maybe BRS will provide better service now that they are one company. I had an ATK fail and Neptune was responsive and replaced at no charge.I think I found the problem with my Neptune Apex ATK...AND...its the one thing Neptune brags about, LOL!!! They brag about having triple redundancy with the ATK, and yet, it was the 3rd redundancy that failed me and cost me a PMUP. For whatever reason, the float switch stopped flowing and it caused the PMUP to go bad as it deadheaded, aka blocked it. I noticed this because I was seeing my flow sensor drop and my ATO pump to stay on. I have seen this before and it usually means that my return pump section is low on water. I got home and guess what, it was low. I started to test the new PMUP that I installed a few days ago and it wasn't working. I thought, no way can a brand new Neptune PMUP go bad. I disconnected the tubing from the ATK flow mount and turned it on, and guess what, it worked again...HMMM!!! I flushed out the flow mount and re-attached the tubing and it worked again. I will buy a Tunze 3155 again and get rid of the ATK as it is riddled with problems. I never had an issue with my Tunze.
