Here is the link for the portable ro/di unit I started out with. It's small and I hooked it up to my garden hose when I needed water.

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

You can buy their premixed salt water but most people prefer mixing their own as it allows freedom to choose salt with different levels of additives such as calcium plus it is cheaper in the long run.

Ok what I'll probably do is just use the lfs water for a couple of months then buy the RO/DI system.

Also I'm buying the tank reef ready does that mean that I'll still need to cycle it?

Reef ready usually implies the tank drilled with overflow, thats it.

Do these units need filter replacements or do you have to buy a completely new one?
