You can keep a hermit in a gal aquarium with no issues but when dealing with multiples its best to give each ten. Most snails can be added at the rate of one a gal, but some esp conches need much more than that, i have a two inch conch in my 28gal but without algae sheets it would need nearly twice that in order to survive.

Got my RO/DI unit today from purewaterclub. I didn't get the T fitting with the ball valve for the sink. Isn't that the standard fitting that comes with it? In the add on e-bay it looks like that is the default and if you want something different you have to specify. Anyone that has bought this one please let me know what you got with it.

The "bathroom" threaded fitting is the standard fitting.

That is the T-fitting with the ball valve, right? I didn't get it. I sent them an e-mail. We will see what happens.

I see what fitting I got now. I got the one that screws into the faucet. I will have to ask them for the T-fitting that goes in the water feed to the faucet. I replaced my bathroom and kitchen faucets and they don't have the same threads that the last ones had. I thought that was universal but it isn't. I wonder if I will have to buy the T-fitting?

You might have to spring the $5 or so for the fitting, unless they let you return the one you did get. :-( I inquired about another fitting right after I got mine and they directed me to their website.

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

You can get them at Home Depot or Lowes for next to nothing. In my opinion, that would be better than the hassle of sending one back and trying to get them to send you the right one. Unscrew the airator off your faucet and take it with you. Then tell the guy in the plumbing department that you need a 1/4" quick fitting for tubing that will adapt to that size pipe. He should be able to help you out.

I got an e-mail back from them and they are going to send me the right one for nothing. The ad for mine (50gpd) said they would send the T-fitting with the purchase. They agreed that is what the ad said and will send me the T-fitting. Very good customer service!! I will order a larger unit from them if I go with a bigger tank. I want the T-fitting so I can connect it under my bathroom sink and not have to take it on and off the faucet.

you dont need a larger unit for a larger tank, Just set it up with a float valve and you will have all the water you need all the time. I have my Ro/di unit thats a 4stage 90gpd pumping into a 55 gallon drum and I could never use all the water that is in the drum at the same time. Then after I do the water changes I turn my water on let it fill all night and turn it off in the morning. I have a powerhead and heater in the drum to keep the water moving and it the same temp as my tank. I put a sump in it with a short hose, so all i have to do is plug it in to fill up my buckets.

good point CleverBs. You couldnt use more than 50 gallons a day anyway unless you were doing huge water changes.
