My priority on a new tank would be the Ro
unit. Yes the protein skimmer is good to have but until your tank is well stocked your bio filter (lr
ad live sand) should be able to handle the load until you can get the skimmer...
1. Current stock is 2 clowns, 2 hermits, a peppermint shrimp, 4 nassarious, 3 margaritas and 4 turbo poop machines.
3. Whichever I don't get will have to wait to around february.
I understand I could save money going
Used on eBay or CL
, but I'd rather for my first tank buy new since I want to be able to get sales support if something doesn't work.
BRS sells a 75gpd RO
for about 170, and the reef octopus 100 for about 130.
If I get the skimmer I could also get some GFO
for water quality and still have some bucks for another couple fish in a few weeks....
Is the RO
from the store really not as good as the stuff I would make?
