I read they both dionize the water but just through different ways. I definately will not have access to an ro/di unit at school.

Heres where I read it:

Ha no one is interested in my thread it seems. Coral only must be boring lol

Here is the other place i got it:

"I think it's just a matter of schematics here -- distilled (or double distilled) water is deionized water -- water that has been deionized by distillation. The generic term "deionized water" just doesn't specify the method by which ions were removed.

It's like saying all lacerations are wounds, but not all wounds are lacerations..."
-HomeBrew-

That quote is at the bottom.

Carey, how many corals would I be able to keep in the ten comfortably?

I have been doing research (chemical warfare? Omg what did I get myself into lol), and trying to look for a base to start from. I have ideas of what I want but i dont know yet how many could make it in the tank.

All depends on the type and size of the corals. If you wanted a brain coral it owuld go n the sandbed, same with most mushrooms, lps like torches and hammers I have do best on the sandbed. I had about 12 in my 4g pico but it was relly crowded and I had 3 different zooas and 3 different mushrooms. I had candycanes, an acan frag, a duncan, a montipora plate, xenia, kenya tree and a few others...and that was in 4g. lol

So I could have a good amount then? Do they kill each other? Do hard soft sps lps polyps and mushrooms have varying compatibility?

My bottled water is RO + Distilled. So I assume it is ok.

I would get small pieces of corals. Stay away from medium and larges LOL. \

I would not recommend getting multiple pieces of the same species of corals that are the same color and everything.

Yea cant touch many of the larger ones anyway (price). So how do your go so far as compatibility?

Here is some of what I want:

-Assorted Polyp (polyp)
-Ricordea Florida Multiple Polyp (listed under mushroom)
-Discosoma Neglecta "Carribean Umbrella Mushroom" (Mushroom)
-Oulophyllia "Deep Walled Maze Brain Coral" (LPS)
-Candy Cane Coral

Hows that Look?
