theres two blue-legged hermits that migrated but i havent seen them in prob 6 weeks..and as for pods, i dont believe i have any...ive looked with flahlight at night for weeks and can never see any. i dont really want to kill off any lil critters but if it means saving hundreds of dollars of fish, so be it

This is a very good point. I'm hoping one of our in house experts logs on soon and answers it. i would love to know if it will affect the live rock. You might be lucky that you didn't go reef.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

You making water now or are you covered by emergency water? This could be one of those times when you really "need" it now. I keep about 20g as backup on top of the 32g I work with during the week

With a wife and three daughters the RO/DI is the smallest consumer in the house. LOL I swear my 20 year old takes three showers a day.

I pay $15 a month for my water/sewer bill so I can't complain. I never looked at the consumption though, it's gotta be alot. I must go through 1000g just for my tanks. Plus the waste water fromt he ro/di unit
