ReefSupplies should have most of what you need. If not, check JL aquatics as well.

Lol. That's a pretty strong statement!

I have no experience with the LifeGuard or APEX autofeeder but sounds like I made a right choice by avoiding them.

BRS kit is out of stock at the moment but it doesn't matter as I still have plenty of 2-part from reefsupplies and BRS that will last a year or two. Once I run out, I will definitely consider this.
