ok here are my questions.. 1st. do you think its worth the money and on that note how do you think it compares in versatility to the reefbot.. (which i understand you probably dont have 1st hand experience with) 2nd. its pretty awesome it controls dosers to steady things.. but if you weren't dosing and going the calcium reactor route, would it have any control in that aspect? 
@nsfw dave, I am very busy and travel a lot, I am also not one of those reefers that like to test their tank. This has always caused me issues with my tanks. For me the cost of the Trident is absolutely worth it. I have already seen a huge shift in my tank stability since starting to use the Trident a few months ago. I have coraline algae growing again, corals that are open and happy that were struggling, and just an overall much happier system.
I also have a reefbot. I bought it a while back when there were again delays in the Trident release. I was hoping that it would be what my Trident has now become. It did not live up to the task. My reefbot is now only testing NO3 and PO4 on my system. It was setup to test the big three that Trident is now doing but the maintenance on the reefbot is almost as bad as just doing the testing manually. The vials and small and don't hold much reagent, the needle has to be replace of cleaned very often and the tests are not as consistant and accurate as I would have hoped (not surprised since they use test kits that generally are not very accurate to begin with and then you have to mix parts of the test together for some things). I also was always a little miffed that they tout the reefbot as being able to test 8 parameters but the only tests I know of that uses a single reagent is Alk and pH. Everthing else uses at least two reagents and reduces the elements that the reefbot can test for. It's also not very easy to setup the reefbot. Once it's done is works pretty well but it's not plug and play at all.
I actually run a Calcium reactor and then have my DOS setup to just dial the numbers in for me. My reactor is setup to hit my target ranges and dialed in for that but I always had a swing during the day due to uptake increases during the photoperiod of the day. So now my reactor keeps the levels steady during the evening after lights out and into the next morning before the lights come on and my DOS only kicks in during the peak usage of the day to keep the numbers from dipping at all. I was able to aquire a parastaltic pump that can be controlled by my apex to increase the effluent through my reactor and I plan to set that up to dynamically adjust the reactor flow instead of the combined dosing that I am currently doing.

OK so I added some barnacles into the tank along with a few crabs to eat the algae. Also started some Chaeto in chamber 1 and added an LED light. The Chaeto must have had some Copepods and a few baby brittle stars in it because thats the only thing I added from the LFS that could have carried them but I have a few stars making homes in the rock. Probably end up as food if they don't survive. About half the size of a dime each.

I have a large rock that has a bunch of palys along with some rastas, and Spider-Man or Superman (don’t remember which) zoas. Along with an encrusting monti and a bird nest frag.
Asking $50

You could frag off the stuff you want if you don’t want the palys the encrusting monti is a good size!
I will also throw in a monti cap that may or may not make it (I took too long setting my tank back up so it’s struggling), another type of green birds nest frags and a rock with some zoas and a galexia frag and leather frag all for free with purchase of the larger rock.
There may be some bubble algae on the large rock I had to clean a bunch off the stuff I kept.
Would love this gone ASAP
First come first serve pick up in Provo.
