[QUOTE=ImACoolguy;3259105]Either will work. You just need to provide an ammonia source


Ok I will add another shrimp! So with my parameters how they are how much longer do you think it will take? It's been almost a month! I really want a fish!

If my parameters are good by this weekend I plan to get a fish! I want a watchman goby and a firefish! I would like to get a hermit crab or brittle star!
Would it be better to just get 1 of the fish and the crab or star fish or could I get by with adding 2 fish at the same time ?

I'd start slow with 1 fish and whatever inverts you want. CALLING EXPERT but I believe starfish need a bigger tank than this?

Once the ammonia and nitrites are 0ppm, the nitrates will be high. You will need to do a large water change to bring down the nitrates, then you are ready to add fish.....

Make sure you get an inline TDS meter so you can monitor your total dissolved solids and a pressure release so it isn't so hard to take the chambers off to replace the filters and resin.
Is this a good ro/di machine? And a good price?

Well I have a 60g cube I'm going to start once I get the hang of things! That's why I was thinking I would need one that I could use for it to!
