    I wouldn't worry much about that. Its possibly something meant for a freshwater setup that employs a canister filter.

    Hey Kyle,

    Awesome to see you are so interested and concerned
    I think the aquaminder is reminding you to change the filters as is was set for 1 month. Did you and Geoff get the skimmer hooked up and the little hang on filter put on the little tank?
    You may want to change the filter media (cartridges in the filter).. but that can really wait till we get home in 4 days...
    House plants may need to be watered
    Purple spots are a possibly a good sign! Maybe I have coralline algae starting, maybe it's the bad cyano algae.. either way, it can wait till we get back. Can't wait to see the little tank!! Thanks for doing such an awesome job

    Could you also do a 10% (one juice jug) water change on the little (spike) tank? Did Mom n Geoff bring a piece of liverock for him?
