    I'd disassemble the wet side and give it a good cleaning for starters.
    Is it flashing a color code?

    I figured out the problem. It wouldn't flash anything at first, just a soft glow. After several days it started throwing jam error / over heat error. I looked at the wet side several times but saw nothing. I kept hearing a rubbing noise and thought it was that ceramic washer. I then thought what the heck and took apart the dry side. Turns out the magnet was rubbing the case where it rests on the tank. It's running like a champ now! I also bought the quite drive since mine was still the old blue case. I've got some baby trocus snails running around the tank now. Here's a shot of the tank.

    Everything's still going good. Tanks running on auto pilot. 3 things happened since the last update. 1) My heater died (thanks apex!) 2) I bought a torch coral with 4 heads but 2 of them just died off. It was almost like the torch was attacking itself. I cut the dying heads off and now the other two are taking off. 3) I got some Xenia from parisreefer. This is the first time I've ever had Xenia pulse on me. Kinda cool to watch!

    Hello All!

    Still running well. I have to keep trimming the Xenia back to keep it at bay (ps if anyone wants any of it I have a whole container of it clipped on the tank. I hate to just trim and throw away). My mushroom has split itself so now I have 4. My dottyback went to the fish tank in the sky. He started loosing his vision. It got to the point where he couldn’t see to eat so I had to make sure to put it right in front of his face. He eventually stopped eating. So the 2 clowns and the flame are still swimming. If anyone has a tail spot blenny I’m looking!

    Nice looking!

    And yes, I would be willing to take some Xenia - amazingly enough, I killed mine off right after I gave some to someone else...can you believe it. I am in Lexington regularly, just let me know what works best... :) thanks!

    Cool, I'm going to give you the whole container because they are all over it. I'll be starting a new one after this. We can shoot for next weekend if that's ok.

    I also have a couple of other things for sell.

    I have a Hydor Slim Skim brand new in the box - $60
    Apex jr - $100
