    Originally, my plans were to buy the lights and filtration system off of the 120 setup to put on my 90G tank. I ended up buying the entire setup. This is a picture of the Dining Room they are sitting in. The 120 is on the right, the 90 is on the black stand. When I first got it, I intended...

    Asking for a friend, I'm still looking at crossing over to the salty side He has a 30g SW that will end up a reef tank. Its been set-up for about 6 weeks and has a few fish in it (one's a tang, which I need to talk him into getting rid of). Any way, He had a few pieces of base rock and a few...

    Hey all, I have a Kent Marine Maxxima 35GPD unit with dual TDS meter. I have my meter set up to read the water going into the DI cartridge, and the water coming out of the DI cartridge. I just got all new filters (DI cartridge, Carbon block, and Sediment filter). My reading after the DI...

    Ok my reading going in is about 240 and now coming out is 33. It used to come out at 5 or below. Does this sound right for that high coming in? Are does this mean something needs to be replaced?

    Well, I've had a "BB" tank for 2 years now, but it's only in the past month that I actually had a real BB tank. That is because (i feel) I had too much rock, poor flow patterns, and def. not enough fish, or skimming. Here was my tank at it's...

    Question 1: My tap water is horrible here I have been going to the grocery store and buying 5 gallons at a time of "purified" water from the fill it yourself dispenser. At $.20/gallon I would rather go to the store once a week and buy water rather than pay 150-200 for a RO-DI system. Does anyone...

    Alright, last time I was running a RODI system here the pressure seemed really low, I was thinking this time when I buy a new setup about getting a pump to go along with it. Any info I should know about this? or isn't it worth it? I'm not on city, I am on well water.

    I have been having some problems with my newer (almost three months old) tank with hair algae so I picked up a TDS meter to check my RO unit. I have a 5 stage RO/DI unit that I picked up off of ebay. The TDS mete reads that my tap water is at 30 however my RO water reads 15-18 depending on how...

    Ok so here is my deal. I had less trouble with phosphates before I bought a R/O unit (8weeks ago). I tested the water from my unit after I noticed the increase in algee in my tank. the readings where 344ppm with a friends TDS meter. My tap water is 294ppm. I checked the water before the DI...

    My TDS PPM is 032 before Di and 003 after Di, Do I really need RO/DI unit or is my DI unit enough?? Does DI remove clorine or is it the RO or A. Carbon that does? Thanks :agree:
