Well... its been a while...

I ended up getting a file fish. It hasn't completely wiped out my Aiptasia problem, but it has definitely made a big dent in it. Since I got the filefish about 4 months ago, it has probably doubled in size.

So the other day my GFCI tripped several times, it took a little trial and error and discovered that one of the recirculating pumps on my skimmer was causing it. So here's the trouble, the pump is a Sicce PSK1000, when I bought it originally from Avast Marine with the CS3 skimmer it was $85 (The skimmer has 2 of them).... I don't know if this pump was discontinued or what happened but I have seen it listed online anywhere from $120 to $160. I'm not going to pay that much to replace it, so I'm probably just going to live with the one pump. 
I had 2 sicce 2500 pumps on my skimmer and I finally got tired of constant issues with them and bought a bubble blaster 5000.  What a great skimmer pump, never regretted the expense.

Iíd like to know what fuels it. Iíve had a couple little patches of it but nothing I got concerned about and it hasnít really spread. But Paul sounds like his is the opposite.

I have a few of these same hydroids. After reading this thread, I decided to take care of them before they get out of hand. I used epoxy to cover the majority of the patch and a laser to zap the ones the epoxy missed. After a couple days, the ones I have lasered are still gone. Thought I would share if this would be helpful to anyone.

I've used Vibrant and it worked as described, so I would think that this would be similar. Obviously, they will need to be open about it and show results, before everyone buys into it. Hopefully it's as great as everyone hopes it to be.

Just passing along an announcement.  But remember, these are the same guys that announced vibrant and that didnít turn out to bad.

I donít have acros, but I will still watch and see.

Depends on which one, the one I used stores encrypted on my hard drive (i.e. not cloud based), can create passwords, tracks expiration time, and with some plugins can perform autotype on specific sites, among other things.

Not that I majored in grammar or anything but you have to be skeptical after reading the first message from UWC. I think WallTank has it right at this point....,

Hey Grym. Is the vault just a place to store all the passwords?
