What is the Most PROBLEM-FREE Edible Image Printer Available? - Page 2

post #16 of 24
Thread Starter 

I'm so sorry about the loss of your tank and your beloved fish.  Ike killed many MARSHian's tanks.  I've been reminiscing lately about my beautiful sun corals and sweet pairs of little banded gobies and their tiny shrimp partners, and I am just about crazy enough to maybe consider trying to set up a little 20 gallon.  No, no, I can't.  Oh but I sure want to.  Thanks a lot, girl!!  LOL! 

 

What brand of ink do you use?

 

BTW, I saw on some culinary travel show a couple of weekends ago that mantis shrimp are now being served as a delicacy.  Seriously!

Thanks and my heart goes out to you, too. I remember you were famous for your sun corals. If I were to do any vertebrates again, it would probably just be a couple of clowns on a rose BTA so people wouldn't ask where the fish are haha. Speaking of that I bet if anyone is reading this they are wondering what the heck we're talking about! I'm going to post a pic of my tank for old times sake.

 

A 20 g...you know what that leads to...and as you know in many ways more effort.

 

I use Icing Images ink and love it the best. The problem was my fault for letting the printer be turned off and unused for too long. Before I used the kind bakery Crafts sells with their printers - good color, but very cloggy. Then I used some called Edible Images, I think - never could get a red from that.

 

After I caught my mantis, I gave him his own tank out of pure respect. The nerve of anyone eating one!! He was so hard to catch. He even outsmarted the trigger I borrowed. (bad move in general, but I was clueless then - he ate every beneficial worm in the tank)

 

This was maybe a year before Ike,  before my rose BTA and lots more corals. I never saw your tanks, but i do remember pics of the suns.  I gave out lots of frags of that gorgonian. If anyone has a survivor that would probably be enough to get the bug again. That thing loved frozen cyclopeeze...

 

May my babies rest in peace-

Hey...There is a setting called paper abrasion that needs to be set. This will take care of the pin feed problem. It is under the maintenance section and the "other" subsection. Once you click on that it will open up the roller blades as well.  We also sell Lucks, but 99% of our icing sheet sales are our Premium Icing Sheets.  As for the blue....If you have an older printer, the printhead seals may be getting old causing there to not be a tight seal on the cartridge. This could have been causing problems for you....I hope this is helpful to you.

Marie,

 

Wow, that gorgonian is impressive!  And that clam!!  Wow, your tank was so beautiful. Seeing your pics sure brings back wonderful memories. I miss the glow of actinic lighting.  Here are my beloved sun corals.

 

 

Hmmm, I do still have two 180 gallon tanks in the garage...LOL

Those are positively gorgous! And the pearly jaw is the thing that got me into reefing in the first place. Yes, I think I had 20,000 k metal halides and half actinic VHO's on that tank. The pics still make me sad. Remember Anemone's tank?  Nothing but splitting roses? That might be cool and relatively low maintenance... tempting :)

 

Here it is:

Oh yes, I remember that!  Okay, so a tank full of rose bubbles, clownfish (of course) and mushrooms that fluoresce under actinics.  That's still low-maintenance, right?  What else can we put in our low-maintenance tanks?  icon_biggrin.gif  Oh, I know..xenia...the white pulsing xenia.  Oh how I loved that xenia tank out at Keith's place (what was the name of that place? Aquatic Designs?).  It was hypnotic watching the xenia pulse and sway in that soft coral tank. icon_eek.gif sigh*  Maybe I need a low-maintenance tank here at the bakery for those super-stressful days.  Wonder if my accountant would agree that it's a tax writeoff for my mental health.  Hahaha

I do remember his pulsing xenia - just amazing. His tanks were the first time I'd ever seen metal halide in person - that hooked me on the glitter lines forever.  Yes, it's definitely got to be a tax write off for mental health!! One time I was in there and Eric B came in - didn't know who he was at the time. I had a falling out with some over at RC for the way they talked about him in the lounge after his swimming pool incident. It would have been one thing if they didn't have loads and loads of his articles still posted for information. Anyway, it really made them look petty. that whole business of losing Ron S et al  resulted in an awful downhill slide for the site. DSB's became declasse and there was such a ton of bad info being given out and then repeated and they were asking people who knew a little something to please go in to the newbie section to help educate. Don't know if you were still around at that time?

Im in Australia and am having problems with new PhotoFrost Sheets I purchased.  Previously I used KopyKake and they seems quite thick to me.  These new ones seem much thinner!

My Canon Pimxa IP3000 is piercing dotted lines down the entire a4 images almost like its the printhead doing it as the paper is fed through.  I don't know what to do.... Has anyone else had this problem?

Just wanted to update this thread...I switched to Luck's brand of frosting sheets and my printer has been printing on them flawlessly!  I haven't changed anything except brands of edible frosting sheets.  I think the Icing Images sheets were just way too thick.  Although now that I think about it, all of the problems occurred AFTER I switched my printer's settings to paper abrasion and all of the other ones outlined in the instructions page that came with my last set of frosting sheets.  Not gonna worry about that now though that things are working as they should.
