I just did a little math, it cost 4$ to go to the lfs, 2.50$ to get 5g of RODI water and 5.00$ to get premixed SW, so one trip is 11.50$, once a week for 52 weeks in a year, and thats 598$ right there!

That's brilliant.
I got mine to reduce hardness in tap water. I thought it cost too much after only 2 year Fishkeeping. Now though, I don't need one, I want a reef. I've 8 years under my belt. Mine is really slow when it's cold, that's the price I didn't pay!

So you know what you are doing with salt, that will do for me! I've been dreaming about mine for ages, I've planned a thousand different ideas. That change as new stuff comes out, led for example. It's the things you can't read about that concern me. For example, the gaseous exchange method is how I've always stocked my tanks, how does that work with a marine tank? Is it display area only or all areas able to permit gaseous exchange, sump, ref etc. this makes a big difference in my sums, I can't find anything anywhere about this?

If you are talking about gas exchange I keep open top tanks with screens on top to keep in the jumpers. This will help keep your ph stable as well.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.
