The one thing that impressed me was the size and how compact it is. Other than that, more details to come when we can.
    Are you guys allowed to say how long you've had the units and how long you'll be testing them for?

    Different NSI members have received them at different times. The first ones were at the beginning of the year - 2nd week if I remember correctly. NSI will continue with the Trident for an indefinite time. Could be a number of weeks, could be a number of months. What I can say at this point is that we have had some important learning already and that things, in general, are so far, going to plan. Now don't even ask what you are thinking I won't answer...

    Where is it coming out?!?!? Joke...

    Well I'm glad that everything is going according to plan and no delays so far.

    What does NSI stand for? Neptune... Something... Insider?

    It's the Neptune Systems Insiders program. See https://www.neptunesystems.com/nsi/ for details.

    These are not exact measurements.

    The unit in my cabinet is about 12 inches deep, about 9.5 inches tall (at its highest point), and about 4.5 inches wide.

    Interesting program. I would have liked to have gotten in on that. Unfortunately they aren't accepting any new "members". Maybe next time....

    I can't wait for the Trident to come out. I enjoy all things reef tank. Even the maintenance. But I despise testing

    I wish it was just a typical box. This swooping design makes it awkward to position in your stand or near fish equipment. Wonder if the design of the case is related to something with the internals.

    Will we be able to add additional tests to the case/unit(in future), or will we be looking at another unit to install?

    Nitrate/phosphate or even dissolved oxygen would be cool, but I’d guess that as a different unit.
    It will be interesting to see if anyone repurposes the metering portion of the device to run different tests. It would be nice if they open sourced it, but that seems unlikely.

    Dissolved O2 monitoring has been available for a long time. It costs about $800 to do so (PM3 module $94, O2 probe $700)
    https://www.neptunesystems.com/produ...solved-oxygen/

    Unlike Ca, dKh, Mg, which can be monitored and adjusted on the fly so to speak, nitrate and phosphate changes slowly and is easy to manually check.
    Plus if you did need to take measures to correct those two, it would be much more intense than simple dozing of a product.
    So I would highly doubt you will see any sort of reliable automatic testing device for them.
    Just keep you tank clean, don't over feed, and nitrate and phosphate won't be a problem.

    I think you’ve missed my point. I can do these things, but would rather not do so. I can dose manually, but I prefer a dosing pump. Pouring some water in my tank is easy, but I still have an ATO. Ever seen someone with an auto feeder for frozen food? Some of us travel regularly.
    The dissolved oxygen probe is pricy and maintenance intensive with the membrane. There are other ways to test that.
    Nitrate and phosphate may be stable hour over hour, but I’d still rather spend my time doing trimming my coral, not testing those.
    I actually dose nitrate in to my system to keep it above zero, so I could adjust remotely if I had test results.

    Points well taken, but at some point automation isn't a good thing.
