You should youtube BRStv. They have lots of videos on RO systems and setting them up.

Received my Tunze ATO tonight and got it set up. It's pretty awesome! I tested it out and it works really nicely.

The truth is...you really don't need all this stuff. You can spend a fortune on a saltwater or freshwater!

Cycle is on. I put about five pounds of trusted live rock on top of my dry rock and added some ammonia. I'll test tonight to check the parameters.
