I'd much rather have the RODI unit you are showing here. How/where do I get one?

@Joey: I enjoyed reading your thread, all of the ups and downs and all of the encouragement and advice people gave along the way. I'm just started a 75 gallon saltwater tank this weekend. So excited!
Well thank you! Glad you're starting a 75!!! You'll have a lot of fun working on it and tinkering with it. Awesome stuff! Look forward to hearing all about it!

Thanks

Sorry to hear of the losses last week. How is your last remaining swimmer doing? Holding strong, I hope.

Blue damsel is happy as a clam! Still alive. Makes me wonder. He's a tough little fish... so crossing my fingers he'll be ok. Trying to find some huge gloves that cover up to my shoulders. I don't want to get bit by those Isopods. Haha... Not taking any chances!!! Still got some Cyanobacteria here and there. Not as bad as before. So I think I'm getting it out.

Good to hear the damsel is doing well. It's a beautiful fish, so at least you've got something colorful to look at in there

For the big gloves, try Amazon: Amazon.com: Arms Length Rubber/Latex All Purpose Cleaning Glove (Pair 22.8"Length): Health & Personal Care

Other google searches for "shoulder length latex gloves" turned up a lot of "novelty" gloves..we'll leave it at that

SWC Protein skimmer went out on me today after doing a water change. I'm hoping its the pump or there's something lodged in it from preventing it to start. I took it out of the sump for the meantime. Question: how long can I leave my tank without a protein skimmer? Worse case scenario I have to wait for a new pump to come... Or buy an other skimmer by pay day. I don't have any fish in there but I do have my corals and inverts in it... What can I do in the meantime???

You should be ok. Just keep the flow moving with pumps and keep an eye on your water params.

BRS just posted a video series on disaster recovery. You might want to hop on their live chat to see if they have any insight (their warehouse was without power for 3 days and they didn't lose anything).
