I know it will get old carting water but for now it will do. I only have am40gal tank. Ha ha, I do see a 55gal FW tank being converted to saltwater.

I hear you Carey I'm doing anywhere from 40-50 gallons a week in my tanks. And yes an rodi filter wouldn't be very ideal for a jbj14 or other small tank but when I only had my 55 it was a major time savor and stress reducer wether it cost me more for the actual water or not it still saves me money. How many people go into the LFS for water and come out with a fish, frag, additive, cool rock, overt or something else lol. I did it almost everytime.

I'd rather make my own because I never know what the quality of the water is from my lfs just heard or had there water salinity at 1.010 and I keep my tank at 1.026. Plus I can keep track of the TDS
