I was thinking of eventually investing in a marine reef system for my home. I was checking this website out where this company will make you a custom marine aquarium, bring it to your house and set everything up for you.
They also state on their website that you don't need to change the water in their fishtanks as they will install an RO
unit and Float Switch onto the sump and that will handle the evapouration of the water and keep salinity and water level the same.
I was wondering how true this was. I was thinking of evenutally investing about £2400 maybe more on a 7x2.5x2 (WxHxD in feet) that comes with everything, sump, skimmer, plumbing, float swtich, RO
It would be very handy for me to have a system that basically tops itself up with fresh RO
water rather than doing a 25% water change every week i am usually quite busy working but after getting my 60g tropical tank ive just become obssesed about getting a full reef in my living room.
Calculating the it volume of this tank is around 270g and it comes with a 70g sump so its working out at 340g for the whole system and u can imagine changing 25% of that (about 90g) will take alot of time and i dont have the room to have a waterbutt with 90g of salt water in it standing for afew days before i use it for a weekly change I also like the idea of these guys coming over to my house, doing structural checks making sure the floor will hold the aquarium and bracing it where needs be and then setting it all up correctly as i know im not too good at plumbing and if im spending alot of money on a marine system and fish i want it to be done properly, no scerw ups.
Just wondering what your guys 2 cents were on these Automated systems.
