Today I figured out to use Apex temperature monitoring function to control power outlet (on/off) to control cooling fan on/off, it's very cool, this is one of the very useful feature of Apex controller so far.

On last Friday I bought a Neon green star polyps coral, till today they are still not opening, I only can see a very small green dot, I thought the coral is dead...
Luckily I checked reefing forum today, get to know this is quite normal for GSP to take certain time to open.
I remember not long ago I threw away a GSP after about 10 days never open, I thought it was dead, now I know it may just receding back the polyps, doesn't like the environment, it's not dead...
Let's wait a few more days to see what will happen on my newly purchased neon GSP...

For the last 2 days, I am busing with setting up Apex controller accessories- breakout box/float sensor/leak sensor/Dos, very happy there are now all working and need to setup the last piece accessory- Auto feeder.
Next challenge is how to organize them and put them into a nice cabinet.

Finally my Apex controller is up and running- all calibrated, the root cause the Apex controller not well compatibly with Android system, it's a bit tricky to setup with Android, at last, I using PC to set it up, it is a piece of cake... I never thought such a simple issue takes me so long to figure out...
Next step is to figure out how to properly install the hardware to my tank...

Since Friday (Dec 28, 2018) after increased light intensity, I've noticed Duncan coral shrink and re-track some polyps, today I watch BRS week 38 video, confirmed my suspect, maybe the light is too strong for Duncan, so I moved it the bottom of tank, let's monitor again.
This is the sign I am learning/improving...cool!
Update (Jan/15/2019), After I relocated the Duncan to bottom of tank, they are doing very fine, they are growing bigger and thriving...

How should I deal the extremely high nutrients inside my tank:
1) Reduce feeding food
2) More water change
3) Clean mechanical filtration media more often
4) Add in NitraPhos Minus
5) Waiting ATS into action...
