4.0 out of 5 stars Good Product, December 12, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This is a good product that can make your aqualifter last a little longer by getting things out of the water that could harm the motor. Look into getting this somewhere besides Amazon because it shouldn't cost more than 3-4$ even at a pet store.

5.0 out of 5 stars Easy install, don't understand battery complaint., December 12, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I did quite a bit or research before buying this unit in the end. I decided to buy 2 instead of more because I noticed people were complaining about how difficult it is to change the battery once it's installed. I think it's pretty silly to say that after seeing the unit myself in person. Yes you have to take the unit off the switch the battery with a simple twist (like any other Kidde detector when you take it off) to access the battery compartment in the bank. Once the unit is off you have to disconnect the AC power adapter that's attached to the back. Luckily you have the easy connector (it also comes with it in case you don't have it) that allow the AC power to be literally unplugged in 1 second. Then you can switch the battery all done!

So to sum up how to switch the battery:
1) Twist the detector, take it off
2) Disconnect the AC adapter that's a plug and play system
3) Change battery.

Sometimes I just don't get people...

Oh besides that I haven't gotten any false alarms now and the unit has been installed for a week. Can't really rate performance because I haven't had a house fire and hopefully won't.


Digital Aquatics Temperature Probe for RK1, RK2 and ReefKeeper Lite
Digital Aquatics Temperature Probe for RK1, RK2 and ReefKeeper Lite
Offered by Champion Lighting and Supply Co.
Price: $24.99

3.0 out of 5 stars Average, November 29, 2012
This is a temp mode that will communicate with the ReefKeeper Lite module to tell it what is the temperature in your tank. A couple of important points:

-The unit seems to stop working about about 8-12 months and must be replaced to keep getting accurate readings
-Sometimes the unit needs to be calibrated out of the box to give you an accurate reading which means you should have another way to measure your water temperature when you use this module
-The ReefKeeper lite package (basic and advanced) will have this temp module included so do not spend money on it unless yours is broken
-This module will work with the RKL but will NOT work with the Reefkeeper Advanced module!

Finally, make sure to place this in a high flow area in your sump or aquarium and not in a dead spot or else you could end up heating / cooling your aquarium when it should be

**I deducted 2 stars because of the replacement reliability issue and the calibration problems.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great game!!, November 29, 2012
This is a great game! It has an awesome story line that will keep you on the edge until the very end. The graphics are not that great but the storyline makes up for it. Know that buying this game will require you to download and install Steam from Valve and create an account with them. It can be a hassle if you're not familiar with steam and how it works. Also, know that you can actually buy this game cheaper from Steam itself and save you quite a bit of money. I don't understand why Amazon doesn't have the same price as steam since it uses that distribution platform anyways.

If you like zombies play this game for sure. Be sure to not read the reviews too much because lots of people tend to spoil the story line with spoilers.


Repel 94109 Lemon Eucalyptus Natural Insect Repellent, 4-Ounce Pump Spray
Repel 94109 Lemon Eucalyptus Natural Insect Repellent, 4-Ounce Pump Spray
Price: $8.88

4.0 out of 5 stars Very good repellent, November 5, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I first must say that I hate DEET and try to avoid it at all cost. When looking into alternatives I found this product to be the most promising based on reviews here. I bought this bottle and also the Repel Deet 100 spray in case this does not work.
I was in the Pacific vising Fiji and Tonga for 2+ months and found the spray to be very effective. While there is no malaria there the danger of dengue fever made me use this spray every night and sometimes during the day. The spray itself has a pretty strong smell but I found it to be much more pleasing than DEET. It also did not irritate my skin and lasted for ~8 hours. I notice that lots of people are complaining about the pump giving it 1 stars. I agree that the pump could be improved but I did not find this big enough of an issue to take off 4 stars for it. The pump works fine until you have about 1/4 of the liquid remaining. At that point you have to hold the bottle vertical for the pump to work. I found it easier to just unscrew the cap and pour a little out on my arms then rub it in.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great medical kit, November 5, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Used this medical kit while traveling. I liked that it contained pretty much everything I needed. However I took off 1 star because I wish it had contained more antiseptic / antibiotic cream instead of the 4 packets that were inside. I also wish that it had more alcohol wipes for cleaning wounds and hands. I added these and a few more bandaids and believe that the kit is now very complete. Will use it for future traveling and hiking. The contents of the kit were not expired so had no issues with that.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great belt, November 5, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I used this belt to travel in the Pacific for 2 months. I was a bit worried about where to put my money and decided to get this belt because it had such high reviews. For me it lived up to my expectations.
The belt itself is strong and even without the secret money compartment it would function as a good belt. It has a plastic buckle that is surprisingly strong and did not crack or break even though it was used on a daily basis. The compartment inside holds about $260 in $20s or even more if you decide to hold higher currencies.
I am a 32" waist and there was plenty of slack however I do not think that this belt would be good for anyone with 38"+ waist.


EcoTech Marine VorTech MP10 ES Propeller Aquarium Pump
EcoTech Marine VorTech MP10 ES Propeller Aquarium Pump

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome, June 22, 2012
I have a 40 gallon reef that has 1 mp10 and 1 Hydor K 750.
Simply put, this pump is awesome. It has five settings to choose from that changes the way the pump moves the water around.
-Constant speed: Puts out a steady constant stream of water
-Lagoon random: Used to simulate a low energy lagoon reef environment
-Reef Crest: Used to simulate a high energy reef crest environment
-Short Pulse
-Long Pulse

A couple of notes:
-The pump motor is attached on the outside of the aquarium to the 'wet side' of the machine that is in the aquarium. **Some reviewers have complained about the pump breaking or making a very loud sound. You MUST make sure the wet and the dry side of the MP10 are lined up properly before you run it full steam. I believe failure to do this will damage your pump. This is pretty straightforward but I spent a few minutes making sure they are properly lined up.

-The difference between the MP10 ES and the MP10 wES is that the wES models are capable of communicating with other MP10s in your tank allowing them to work in harmony together. If you are only planning to have one pump in your tank then I see no reason why you should get the wES model. Also, EcoTech allows you to upgrade anytime to the wES model by purchasing the wES controller from their website.

-The dial on the controller is used to set what level the pump should work at. For example, in reef crest the pump changes its speed constantly and randomly to simulate a reef environment. By turning the dial, you can set a maximum speed that the pump can reach while it is in a mode.

-Cleaning and taking apart the MP10 is a breeze. I simply dump it in vinegar over night and fresh RO/DI water the next day to get any slime off of it. Works well. The Dry side of the pump cannot be taken apart.

-The pump features a night mode that can be activated to operate at 50% speed for 10 hours at the same time every day until the pump loses its power. This is a great way to give your fish some sleep.

-In any of the modes, the main advantage of the pump is that it doesn't create a water tunnel that blows the water directly at an object in the aquarium but instead creates a random movement of water. This is great for corals that need lots of water movement but do not like to be hit with a water currently from one angle (which is what the Hydor does)

For more information make sure to look at the MP10 Manual which can be downloaded from the EcoTech website. I found it helpful to read it prior to making the decision to purchase the MP10.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great shorts, June 22, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This are great shorts. I don't think they are see through unless you wear something dramatically different in color under neath them. They are great for running or any exercise where you want to be as light weight as possible. They seem to be right fit meaning a 32-34" waist will be comfortable in a Large. The bottom of the shorts come up above the knees as seen in the picture.
Once downside to them is they do NOT have pockets. While this doesn't concern me it might annoy some who wish to use it to the gym or other places where pockets come useful.

Also, make sure it says that they are mens shorts in your cart. I selected mens before adding it into my cart, and it changed it to KIDS size due to some glitch.
