APEX Neptune
The Apex is a self-contained monitoring platform built for reliability – for when things go wrong – It’s not just a toy to play with when everything is A-OK.
Every Apex has a built in web-server (tech talk for its control software and built-in web interface) with complete functionality – even if the internet is down! This is important, see why. . .
Let’s say you have a power outage and want your aquarium to take the appropriate actions to maintain the fish and corals for the longest time possible. Or, what if the internet is down (or a company’s cloud servers) and you simply want to manually turn on your lights or turn off your skimmer.
Some aquarium devices work ONLY via their online cloud service, so when the internet is down or slow, you are out of luck. With the Apex, even if the internet is down, your tank will continue operating without interruption.
· Prevents catastrophes by monitoring key parameters in your aquarium, takes corrective actions for you, and alerts you via your smart phone when things go off track.
· Monitors your equipment – ensuring it is operating correctly at all times – and lets you know when it’s not.
· Tracks your manual test results, maintenance, livestock purchases, and tank observations and helps you correlate issues in your aquarium to the things that are happening inside.
· Manages the full operation of equipment (lights, pumps, filters, ATO, etc.) on your tank with simple setup wizards and an easy to use app.
· Takes the place of many costly and cumbersome discrete components such as light timers, heater controllers, pump controllers, etc.
· Gives you the peace of mind to know how your aquarium is doing, instantly, from anywhere in the world.

Penguin Barely Escapes Hungry Orcas By Jumping
On Tourist Boat
The gentoo penguin swam for its life and was
greeted by a cheering section.
A gentoopenguinescaped a pod of hungry orcas by leaping onto a boat of cheering tourists in Antarctica.
Viral video (Video) shows the penguin frantically trying to out-swim one of the killer whales, then slamming against the Zodiac as it tried to jump aboard, according to Buzz60. It sprang once more from the waters of the Gerlache Strait and got a small assist from one of the passengers to reach safety.
Matt Karsten, who filmed the chase, told The Daily Mail on Monday that the orcas appeared playful at first, even swimming right up to the camera to say “hello.”
Then they were all business when the penguin appeared.
“It was like watching a National Geographic episode on location,” he said. “I imagine the penguin was very relieved to get away.”
The giant predators followed the boat and its scrumptious cargo for a bit before giving up, and the penguin returned to the water, Buzz60 noted.
This penguin may have survived its close call, but sometimes nature has other plans when an animal appears to escape its doom.

What to do if your shipment is delayed or lost
We want to remind everyone what to do if your
shipment becomes delayed or lost.
Contact your SDC-ERI Sales Rep immediately to help expedite the shipping process and to help you with the process of doing a claim.
No matter if your shipment is two days late or a week late, it is ultra important to pick it up from the airlines so that SDC-ERI can have a chance to get a freight claim on your behalf. Regardless of what the airline rep says, ONLY THE SHIPPER (SDC-ERI) is allowed to do a claim.
In most cases, shipments that have been in transit for more than 48 hours have a very good chance of receiving a claim.
Helpful reminders…
Request a claim form from the airline representative. Get them to notate what the circumstances are with your order. Notate if the boxes are damaged or leaking. If they do not have a claim form then feel free to bring your own with you by downloading it from your airlines website. If you do not have a claim form then write some notes on the airway-bill BEFORE you load the freight on your truck and ask the rep to acknowledge what you mutually agree on by signing and printing their full name on the airway-bill or the claim form.
The next step is to get the fish back to the store and carefully acclimate them. Neutralizing the ammonia is the most important part of the process. First, float for temperature acclimation. Next cut open the bags and pour the fish gently into your buckets and measure the pH & ammonia levels. Neutralize the ammonia and begin to drip acclimate slowly.
While you are acclimating you can notate the DOA’s on a copy of the invoice that we sent to you.
Please photograph the DOA’s which can greatly aid in our attempt to get your claim. This is best done by lining up the DOA fish neatly on the white Styrofoam lid that accompanies the box.
We will need you to fax/email the DOA’s along with the claim form, photos and the airway-bill as soon as possible along with any other useful information about the situation.
While every situation has its own particular set of nuances, this is a general guide of the most important steps.
In review…
-Never Refuse a shipment… No one wins and everybody loses.
-Contact your SDC-ERI Sales Rep immediately if there is some unusual delay.
-Get a signed document from the airlines
(claim form or airway-bill)
detailing the circumstances.
-Neutralize Ammonia before introducing a different pH level to the fish
-Send DOA’s, Claim Form, photos and YOUR Airway-bill copy to your Sales Rep.
Most of you will never have to deal with any of this but we want to make sure that you are aware of the proper protocol in the event of a claim situation.
Thank you all,
Your friends at SDC – ERI

The Original “MJ 1200” pump. This is the “Industry Standard” for submersible

 Originally marketed by another company, this pump was abandoned by them and picked up by their former product development expert and is now being sold under the Cobalt brand because the other company decided to save a few bucks by moving production from Italy to China, mistakenly so.
SDC – ERI
STRONGLY recommends
 this powerhead as being the best available…. period.

Gyre Pumps
are in use
and in stock
@ SDC -ERI
SDC -ERI is always looking for the tweak items to play with that make the reef keeping experience exciting and better than the past. We are pleased to say we found such a product with 4k Gyre Pumps.
Using them in our facility gives us a leg up due to the extremes that we put our equipment through. They are rated for up to 125+ gallon aquariums. We like to use multiple units on our coral grow-out systems as well is in our coral raceways because of their spectral flow. This ensures that all of our corals are getting quality flow without dead spots in the flow to the bottom, corners and edges of our systems.
SDC – ERI’s industry professionals have
approved them as worthy for use!
Why have Gyre pumps taken the aquarium world by storm? There are three main reasons:
1. They leave virtually no dead spots in your aquarium.
2. The flow is evenly distributed through your entire aquarium.
3. Water bounces back off the other side of your tank, creating a full circulation to complete the Gyre pattern.
Unique Gyre Flow:
   Virtually Eliminates Dead Spots
   Evenly Distributed Linear Flow
   Discrete Design
   Can Be Mounted Vertically or Horizontally
   Can Be Mounted Close to the Water Surface
   Waterproof Magnet Mounts
   Twin Directional Flow Cages
   Includes 2 Sets of Propellers: Orange and Black
   HYDROS WaveEngine Direct Drive Compatible
   1-Year Limited Warranty
   Rating: Aquariums 25-150+ Gallons
   Maximum Flow: 4,000 Gallons Per Hour
