If you plan on getting water from there, yeah I'd recommend it. Just to be sure. I was buying hi phosphate hi nitrate water for 50 cents a gallon until i tested it.

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

Get you a restaurant grade trash can with lid (home depot) $25.00-40.00, all plastic float valve (ebay) $7.00, spiggot (ebay) $6.00, 200 watt heater (ebay) $16.00, & powerhead (ebay) $20.00.

I can give you pics of my setup. Works perfect. When you first mix your salt in the trash can for first time, keep track of how many scoops of salt you used to reach the desired salinity.

Well worth the investment. Congrats for a good buy.

Silly question, but how do you know if it's restaurant quality?

Most of them say food grade on the label. They are made better. If you need more info or help let me know. I'm new here.

I'll look into lowes this week. I'm hooking my rodi up in the garage connected to a garden hose so I think a garbage can size vessel would be best. My b/f is sooo gonna make fun of me. LOL

Thanks for the tip!
