    What would be the best RODI system to maintain a 100 gallon tank? How would you set the whole thing up other than just the filter. Do you guys run hoses into buckets. Once in the buckets how does that work. Do you have valves at the bottom or do you pump water out and directly into your tank...

    Hello, I am setting up a new biocube 29 gallon. Im going to be picking up live rock from a guy with a huge tank, Should I just take as much of his water as I can with the live rock and chaeto I get? Or should I make my own saltwater and already have the tank filled? Would it cycle faster with...

    This might be a weird question so let me know if I'm completely on the wrong track... My previous tank was from a friend and only started off with a mini cycle after relocating so I'm yet to experience a full cycle of my own. My new tank arrives in about a month and I'd like to speed things...

    I have a frogspawn pretty high up on my rock work, when I do a water change about 2-3 heads are out of the water. How long could they be exposed to air before any ill effects happen? Should I move them a little lower? It really hasn't bothered me till now because it is getting so big and I don't...

    Hey All! We've had a goni for a few days now in a fairly new tank. Noticed it has retracted itself a few times and wanted to know if it was a natural thing, or our water conditions. We haven't moved it since placing it in a medium to low spot up on a higher rock in our 6g nano reef. I will...

    Hey all. New to the site - been lurking for a little bit now but thought it's time to join! :banana: My girlfriend and I have recently set up a 6g nano reef tank. This is our first saltwater aquarium after a few successful tropical freshwater tanks in the past. (Though we only have ever really...

    I wasn't sure where to post this but I just bought a 100 gallon tank which I will be setting up once I move into my new home. I currently have a 20 gallon and I always used distilled water to fill it up and for water changes. To save some money, I was wondering if I would be able to use tap...

    Hey guys, Just wanted to give a shout out to the RT community on this one. Been a member for some time now. I can honestly say I have learned more from everyone here then google could every provide. That being said I wanted to talk about extending the life of DI resin (which I've learned about...

    Hi, I am pretty new to the hobby and very new to this RODi unit (or RODI at all). I bought the Spectrapure refurb MPDI 90g/d. My PSI was only between 38-40 so I added a booster pump which gets me to 80. However now my production rate seems to be about 340 ml/min (had to guess, close but just...

    I've been using the "tap water filter" made by API for the last few years, and just found out tonight while looking for replacement cartridges that the darn thing has been discontinued!! So now the hunt is on for a new unit. I'd really prefer something inexpensive that'll get the job done. I've...

    Hello everyone, I have recently began adding corals to my aquarium and have switched to Red Sea's Coral Pro salt. When mixing at a salinity of 33.0 ppt, they advertise: Calcium: 450ppm Magnesium: 1340ppm Alkalinity: 4.3meq/l When I go ahead and mix a batch for a water change at...

    I'm going to try and keep this as short and to the point as i can! I've had my 29 gallon tank setup for about 8 months. Filtration is 2 canister filters. No skimmer. Never used RO water, only tap water. I use good quality salt. About 15 lbs of LR. 2 powerheads. One propeller and one shooting a...

    So with everything ready to go, I will be filling my 125 gallon here within a day or two. However, filling with ro, I believe it will cost me around 100 dollars. I don't have an RO filter at home, and paying the money for the water isn't a giant problem, I was just wondering if there were any...
