Officially producing my own RO. I've now made around 30 gallons total, threw out the first 10-11.

I bought a 32 gallon Brute for storage.

I ordered my refractometer off ebay, and should be here next week sometime.

I have decided to purchase a Derasa clam from my LFS. They have quite a few, so I'll pick one out tomorrow or Sunday. Very excited!

isn't the ro/di unit somewhat freeing? lol I love not having to lug water anymore. I also use a 32g brute for my water, works out fine, takes about 6 hours to fill.

Good luck with the clam, make sure we get pictures!

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

Pictures for sure... of the clam! I don't think the garbage can / ro/di necessarily deserve photo space...

All kidding aside, I think that hands down the BEST two purchases / bang-for-the-buck items I have gotten have been ATI bulbs and my RO/DI unit as far as improving the entire aquaria experience for me.

I agree..I went for years with the little plastic box and pointer system. Spent $25 on e-bay on a refractometer and can't believe I went so long without one.

I almost forgot... I found a small aptasia (about 1/2") growing on a small rock that a xenia frag was using. I planned to get rid of it this weekend, but today when I looked in the tank, it had completely disappeared.

My skunk cleaner didn't eat it did he? He's getting a high-five if he did!

Should I now be more concerned? Yikes!
