Got my T-valve from purewaterclub.com today. What great service! Also, blew the radiator in my car. Will set back the tank a little. Worth waiting for, though.

Hey Tim! How's the tank coming along? Any new updates? Like I said early on in this thread, you were motivating me. I finally took the plunge and started stockpiling equipment for mine.

Blew the radiator on my car and had to spend $360 to get that fixed. Probably gone set back the build until after Christmas. I am pretty busy at work and have some special things planned around Christmas (taking the kids to Arizona to do the "Polar Express" trip). It kills me cuz I'm so close but just isn't working out. All in good time though. Not in a huge rush. Maybe you will have yours up before me!

When you guys hooked up your RODI unit, how long did it run before you have usable water? Got mine hooked up and running, just wondering when the water is usable.

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

So, 50 gallons per day divided by 24 hrs equals 2 gallons an hour. So, I will let it run about 3 hours and call it good. I think I will make the water tomorrow and mix the salt and be able to go to the LFS and get the live rock and set up the tank and start cycling Saturday or Sunday. Again, thanks for all your help carey.

This is with blues and whites on. Tomorrow will be a trip to the LFS for live rock and possibly the bacteria starter kit. Have the Fluval 405 set up with 2 trays of ceramic rings and 2 trays of floss. I can run the filter during the cycle right?

Certainly can, although if you have a sandstorm after adding sand and sw i wouldnt run anything till it clears.
