I'm thinking about it because it will cost me £100 for the ro-di unit then I need a bath or bucket to put water in the biggest problem I have is some where for the unit to go in the house

best way i've found is to keep a high flow and keep spaces between the rocks, also feed enough that all the fish can eat and whatever other food is wasted is cleans up by crabs/shrimps, some snails, stars, pods, or worms.

if you are talkign about high levels of nutrients that have been soaked up by rocks, the only real is to dilute it with waterchanges and over time the levels will drop, just keep feedings to a minumum and do weekly waterchanges

I keep a 35g tote in my basement. From walmart.. Cut a hole for a bulkhead so I can easily take water out.
