Keeping a saltwater tank in a basement suite??

In a few months I'm moving in a smaller size home. From a 2500 sqft home to a 1000 sqft basement suite. Needless to say I have to sell my 8 foot fish tank. I would like to get a 90 gallon fish tank or something like that. I'm wondering how some of you who live in a basement suite keep saltwater tanks. There isn't allot of room for rodi water bins for top off ato units or premixed salt mix. I would like to know how some of you manage to keep saltwater tanks in a basement suite. Any advice is appreciated.

Hey there! Do you have a washing machine area? If so, you can hook it up there.

One option is just get the RO from grocery store and get an "add on" DI. You need a pump similar to return pump to suck the RO from one container to force it through the DI and out to another container. You do this during your scheduled pwc. You can store the DI in your cabinet when not in use. Here is the link of the add on DI.
