I am setting up a tank in my office at work. I only have access to city water in the building (I cant hook up a RO
here). What sould I do for water? As far as I can tell my options are:
1. City Water
2. Buying 30 Gal
of distilled water form the supermarket
3. Buying the water that is for sale at the LFS
(something like $20 for 5 gallons) It's supposed to be the "Perfect Water" for marine aquariums.
I hear Instant Ocean salt is the best you can get, any feedback on this?
Also, I got one of those 29gal Biocubes. How much live rock should I put in this tank (ie. how many pounds)?
My list so far:
-Oceanic BioCube 29 gal
Nano Reef Bio Cube Aquarium w/ Stand
-Sapphire Aquatics Protein Skimmer for Oceanic BioCube Model BC29
-Pacific Coast CL
-150 Micro Chiller. 150 watt Thermo electronic water chiller/heater
-OceanMaster Test Kit (Kit includes tests for pH, Alkalinity, Ammonia, Nitrite, and Nitrate)
-Calcium Test Kit
