I can make about 35 gallons a day. I just hope the trItes come down in the next few days. I can have 3 20 gallon tubs ready to go in a couple days. I could make the RODI now and then mix the salt the day before I need it right?

Day 10 results. Looks like ammonia at .25ppm, nitrIte at between 2 and 5ppm and nitrAte still around 80ppm. I think the nitrItes are dropping. Hoping for finish this weekend.

Thanks man. You were right when you said this is the most annoying thing I will ever do. It is killing me. Gonna go check out your build and see how far you have come.

Test results for day 11. Ammonia 0ppm, nitrIte 1ppm, nitrAte 80ppm. NitrIte is starting to drop, possibly due to a top off with RODI water last night of about 3 gallons. I put in half of the bottle of start smart on day 1 and the rest of it on day 7. Looks like I will be cycled in about 2 weeks. Opinions?

Looks like you're right at the end! I have probably missed it, but what's your stocking plan?

@kurtyboh, I have 20 gallons of saltwater ready to go. @rookie, only things I know for sure are O.C. clown pair and ywg. Open to any other ideas.
