That test is on sale at my LFS
for 15 dollars, so I will pick that up easily!
If you click on the link for that Fluval it's the 6 serious. At all my LFS
they are 139 dollars at jacks, 110 dollars at petco, and so on. That is the cheapest I found them.
Also I read up on the skimmer and a lot of people say it's good. I found more reviews. I am going to go with it because I only got a 29 gallon and the Reef Octopus are for 100 on up. This is the website for it with more details.

So I think it will work, it looks like a new product. Better reviews then the Petco one. lol
I was planing on never doing my own salt mix, with my LFS
selling water, I though that would be the best way to go for water changes. A few dollars a week will not kill me. I always did five gallons water changes when I had my freshwater. My freshwater tank was going good and everything healthy until I decided to mess things up and stress my Clown Loaches myself. I do plan on taking my water for testing to "The Reef" in Indianapolis after I cycle my tank and make sure everything is ready to go!!
