I don't know about availability of RO
water, but I think that distilled water is water is available, either at the drugstore or supermarket. This could possibly temporarily resolve the foggy issue until I get the RO
filtering system. I agree with you that it only works for the chemical part of water not the particles floating around. Drats!
The quarantine tank is not very large, 12 gallons, but it came with the basics. A marine starter kit from Big Al's: light, pump, filter with bio wheel, heater. I think it is a neat little kit and should be sufficient for a QT
as I don't intend on bringing in more than one fish at a time. I also did a 25% water change, still using tap water
, and adjusted the salt levels. Salinity was within the acceptable range.
To answer your inquiry, the main tank is a 125 gallons, 6 feet long. Reef ready with 4 wholes in the bottom. I plan on using one pair for the sump/filtering system, and the other pair for high level water circulation. I think it is called a closed loop.
