Ok, so I am "allowed" to use my 180 in the living room. We've decided that the living room carpet can be sacrificed :) I've cleaned out the tank, here is a "before" picture.
I'll have to reinforce the stand and fix the canopy to open in the front. (stand and canopy I'm going to use aren't in the...
I removed one of the corner overflows from our AGA 180 and was able to remove 99% of the silicone. Now I'm a little worried about the marks on the glass that was the back of the tank where coraline algae and coral encrustation was. These areas seem to be etched into the glass.

I've seen vinegar mentioned on here a couple of times...is that a mixture of vinegar and h2o or is it straight vinegar? Furthermore, how long do you need to let your equipment dry before placing it back in the tank?
I posted this on ReefCentral, I think it may help here also.
I finished my first recharge this afternoon. The di resin that was recharged was from Buckeye Field Supply, good folks by the way.

I bought a 72 gallon glass tank used. The glass on the front of the tank has a cloudy film on it. On the sides of the tank the glass is crystal clear. Before setting up the tank I scrubbed and scrubbed and nothing would budge it. It didn't look as cloudy when I put water in it, but now that...
ok... i filled my 300 with tap water to do a leak test on the bulkheads under pressure. I will now get to climb into the tank today or tomorrow to scrape the walls down and clean the tank out the rest of the way. the water is friggin cold still and i was wondering if anyone had any suggestions...
I'm not sure if anybody out there can really answer this or not.
My question is how many times more often would you have to change your cartridges in a DI only system vs an RO/DI system.
My RO/DI is fine... I guess... honestly the DI only have a huge speed advantage plus no waste water.
