Thanks Carey, I was just looking at that system a couple day ago. I have been feeding a mix of ROD's/ Pellet/ Brine shrimp on different days. I have been changing 5 gal at a time I'll move to 10 for a bit though. Again thaks for everything.

Good luck, I bet you see results just from upping the water change amount and cutting back a tad on your feeding. That Rods food is good but it leaves an awful lot of uneaten food in my tanks. Not to mention only like 2 of my fish even eat it. lol

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

Well I tested my RO water and low and behold im getting readings for ammonia-.25 and nitrates-10. I was gonna get a skimmer and refugium first but now I'm really considering that RO/DI unit. Guess since I have such a small system I'll just get the $65 unit.

Well that explains where the ammonia is coming from and the extra nitrates.

Here is the link again for the ro/di unit.

eBay - New & used electronics, cars, apparel, collectibles, sporting goods & more at low prices

It's alot cheaper than getting a skimmer and other stuff too. Plus no more lugging water here and there. lol
